New Gearbox – Gear X / Kiwi Special Projects

by on Mar.19, 2013, under Garage, General

Many of you might have seen some new decals on our DC5 race car…Gear X and Special Projects.
So what happened? We hadn’t updated our blog for a while, but during that time our team member Reinier did an excellent job in rebuilding our gearbox. The stock box wasn’t too happy with the 300+ HP we thrown at it, so time for improvement here!

We got in contact with Jeff Owen from Kiwi Project / Special Projects / Gear X. After some discussion and advice with the goals for this car in mind we decided to get the following parts:

* Pro III CLose Ratio Gear Set
* 5.08 Final Drive
* Carbon Synchros
* New bearings/Seals.

Under 2 minutes – We made it!

by on Mar.02, 2013, under Garage, General

We made it! Yes! We always said we would start from scratch if we could not go below 2 minutes on Assen TT Circuit.
In our first serious testing laps for this season, after the full rebuild and a lot of suspension tweaks, we made it!
Now we will finetune both the car and the driver, try to loose some extra weight (both the driver and the car? ;) ) and try to imrove this laptime during the year!

Suspension update.

by on Feb.02, 2013, under Garage

In order to get the most out of our DC5 we have to be able to adjust every setting you can think of. When project dc5 was being build BC Racing did not have a coilover set available with external reservoirs and rebound damping adjustment. That’s when it comes in handy to be the BC Racing distributor for the Benelux, when it is available you are the first to know about it. Therefore out with the old, in with the new! Well……OLD…..the BR series only covered a few laps but only the best is good enough.

BC Racings premium flagship coilovers are the external reservoir ER Series with separate compression and rebound damping adjustment. The ER Series coilovers bring with them the high quality and unique features seen on the BRĀ  type but have the additional benefit of external reservoirs and the ability to allow you to individually adjust and set compression and rebound damping rates. The external reservoir ER Series coilovers allow BC Racing to increase the oil capacity of the damper unit. The additional oil capacity reduces peak oil temperatures which decreases variations in damping rates due to oil viscosity changes. The reduction in damping rate variations improves handling and ultimate on road and track performance.

Engine back in and running 300 HP!!

by on Nov.23, 2011, under Garage

A few weeks ago our K22 engine came back from it’s trip to UK. Rebuild and ready to rumble.
We mounted the engine back in the car and modified some minor details. Always exciting when you push the starter button for the first time again, but no problems at all. Everything was running perfectly.
To finetune the engine again another dynorun was needed, therefore we went back to DP Engineering. This time the magical 300 number was getting pretty close. Martijn managed to tune it with the Hondata Kpro to an astonishing 300,2HP with 275Nm of torque. All of that without using a turbo or supercharger. NA all the way.
Next up is fixing some minor things with suspension setup and we have to finish the front splitter. After that next Time Attack season may as well get started.

Finally, the first shakedown.

by on Sep.21, 2011, under Garage

28th of August a new event came up. We were desperately trying to get the car ready before that. Some last details still had to be done but no major stuff. We had to make sure the car was running properly so we didn’t lose face during Superlap so we planned a shakedown on Zandvoort circuit.
August 24 was the big day!!
To get the car really ready for track we still had some things to do. It was way to loud with the Ape garage custom exhaust, this should only take one lap before we get the black flag. Regulations are very strict over here in Holland according to sound levels. Another problem was a ticking fuel pump. That should be the first problem to take on. After that trouble really started.

Diffusor fabrication

by on Sep.19, 2011, under Garage

To create enough downforce on our track car we decided to make the entire bottom flat en use a rear diffusor. The diffusor is made of ABS plastic to keep it light and flexibel.
