@Popcorn1 Good point, but isn't the function of the ceramic coating to keep the heat in the turbine side to prevent it from radiating to the inlet side and/or engine bay? Helping response by keeping the inlet charge cold. So maybe Hans's approach is to try and keep the heat down by whatever means he can?

It is such a shame that Hirvonens' career has been overshadowed by the dominate Loeb. He has continued to improve year after year and whilst he has come close to the title he unfortunately had the misfortune to come up against a truly one in a billion driver.

Oh and dont forget to check the line bore at the same time you get your cylinders bored!!
I reckon you are on the right track with the L28 it will be cheaper than a decent turbo set up and feel nicer to drive AND sound good. It is important to set the goal of what YOU want to do with/from the car. Dont get caught up in chasing "numbers" as it is an awesome way to empty your bank account and who knows the car could be the best for YOU at the HP you are currently aiming at?
Check this out might help?

So the pro wears a helmet and the amateurs dont wonder why? Maybe cause the pro knows how easy it is to hit your head when your truck tips?

I went to this event and it was awesome!! Frankly I think it caught everyone by surprise how quick the cars got up to 80mph. AaronVenable you have a valid point. The public was very close to the action. Too close will always be debatable. If your up the front and something does go wrong you wont be able to step back cause the crowd was 4 deep. As much as these guys have unbelievable skill and control there is always a case for the "what ifs". Look at the bollard that the winner took out in practice, sometimes we ALL cock up and no driver would want that to cost anyone any harm. I think the organizers did a great job but I think they weren't quite expecting the quantity of people they got!! Easy fix though, put up bleachers. You'd get a better view, and could be a little further back, and having to watch out for a little kid or an idiot trying to jump on course would be much easier to police. Grumble over.
It was a great day and a ground breaking event. I think that this is more like what Ken Block envisaged for gymkhana and I hope that we could end up with a 4 wheel drive drift show run along side the rear wheel drive cars. Separate classes of course. The proximity sensors and points system were excellent ideas and getting rid of the judges works for everyone. Digital don't lie. This is definitely a step in the right direction for drifting as far as I am concerned.
The drivers have more fun by showing their skills.
There is no stress about judged results.
The crowd can relate easily to who is doing better and why.
It looks and SOUNDS , (Sams' Dodge), awe inspiring.
Well done Mike Whiddett, for not letting the nay sayers win, persevering and getting it done!!
Now let's see it go global.....

@1013mm No worries, credit where credit is due. Every photo is a worthy poster.

I think the most impressive thing about this collection of photos is the use of light and colour. Obvious? Perhaps, but it defines the great from the good. Every image shouts off the page, "Look and let your mind soak it up". Excellent work John.
