So she is almost completed and ready to go to Fulcrum for a wheel alignment and then over to prodyno for an exhaust system and dyno run so I gave it a quick bath to get all the sanding dust and crap of it before we go.

Got the better steering wheel on for the wheel alignment.

Exhaust system getting made.  We used pipe and Lukey muffler from the old system off my XD and also used other pipe work to join it all up from a new Mustang and Maloo ute.

Some of the exhaust was from the Mustang you can see in the background.  It had an after market exhaust system fitted so the standard one was binned and that was handy for us.

So with the exhaust completed it was time to hit the Dyno!

So I had some big problems arise on the Dyno runs.  First up it decide not to pump up enough fuel so we discovered that the 044 pump I bought was dodgy.  So I ended up buying a VL Commodore external pump and made a few changes and it better suited the flow for the Barra.  Then we discovered that the 044 pump ruined the fuel pressure regulator so I had to go to the wreckers and get another one of those.  Finally we got onw good run in and then the computer decided to start shutting down because it wasn't receiving a speed signal, so I got kick off the dyno and had to go home and make a few changes.

So when I got home I Found the speed signal wire just hanging around and it runs to B7 pin on the computer.  So I hooked it up to the gearbox sender.

BF Powered XF Race Car - Page 4 20170601_154849_zpsjjdkdf76

Doing a wire check and making sure I was reciving a speed signal on my Tablet.

BF Powered XF Race Car - Page 4 20170601_164308_zps8qzsno0j

For some reason the computer still wasn't receiving a speed signal.  So I got onto my flash tuner and he sent me a module to make the computer read a speed signal and that still didn't work  Sad
I discovered the speed signal was going to pin B5 instead of B7 so I made a pin change in the computer plug.

I also had to ground the clutch wire.

BF Powered XF Race Car - Page 4 20170605_130627_zpsfmwvomxc

Still didnt work so I had enough for the day.  All we could do is reset the computer before each run so it was time to go racing anyway!

So we arrived at the Wondai Street Sprints safely and both me and Mel were super excited and very nervous. We weren't sure how this car was going to drive especially after failing on the dyno. We had never driven the car on the road before, so we weren't sure on handling, brakes steering and even if the engine was going to rev for us without breaking down. Mel was also keen on making the cars debut with having the first run so I was very worried, as long as the brakes worked that was my main concern. So we got the car passed through scrutineering and Mel got her first ever drivers pack. We got back to the pits, stickered up the car and finally done an unveiling for everyone to see on facebook because I kept a bit of a secret on there, only you guys with this thread seen how the car came to life.

So it was race day and now the nerves were really kicking in for the both of us.  All the hard work I had put in over the last 6 months all lead to this moment.  THIS IS IT!

So she made it safely around the course perfectly.  All my hard work paid off.  I could hear the engine break down a bit towards the end of her run.  When she got back to the pits we swapped drivers and had a very quick decision on how the car felt.  Mel said the steering and brakes are amazing and the car powered on fantastically.   So it was my turn to see what this new beast is made out of.

So it was a very successful weekend even with the ECU restricting the engine.  I went about 3 seconds quicker than in the XD the previous year and Mel finally got to do a race and now she has the racing bug.  My best time was a 1:04.3468 and Mel was 1:16.4075



So in the end here are the results for our class:

Because of Stupid Photobucket destroying millions of Threads I have decided to make a video that include all the pics from the thread.  So possibly you will be able to watch the vid on Youtube and read along this thread and get the idea of what's going on.  I will post the video at the start and at the end off all my threads.  It's going to take a very long time to do every thread I have ever made but I will do my best to get all my main ones done first.

Kick back and enjoy the vids kids.  


Cheers Joshy351

OK guys some big updates on the way!  I will start off with The Noosa Hillclimb that was held in late July.  We got the XF Signed By Dick Johnson at The Hill which is a fantastic achievement considering its only its second race!  Here is a video I made!

So we decided to do Pittsworth Sprints!  Wow what an awesome event.  The track is fast and I have never seen so many XDEF at a race meet before.  I got use to being the only XD or XF but at Pittsworth there was plenty around. To start the event they had fireworks then practice runs Friday night.  Then Saturday was the sprints all day and in the late afternoon the burnout comp began with smoke filling the sky well into the evening.  It was heaven.  Me and Mel were setting a great pace with Psicho XF straight up with my first timed run on Saturday under a minute.  It was also great to get some practice runs on the Friday night which I found was just awesome! My best run on Saturday was a 57.72 and 12th in class. Mel was a 1:05.92 and 31st in class. On the Sunday they reversed the track so it was like running a whole new race which was a great challenge.  I wasn't as comfortable racing the other way with my times a slight slower with a 58.71 and 13th in class and Mel finish her last run which was her best run for the day sideways across the finish line backwards and hitting the concrete wall with a 1:06.20 and 28th in class.  So poor old Psicho XF coped a hard shunt.  We will fix her!

So big update guys!  We have some huge events coming up and it all starts in 4 weeks!  First we have Oakey Street Sprints on May 18th to 20th.  Then in July we are hoping to get accepted in on the very First Mt Morgan Hill Sprint.  This event is going to be massive for us as its the first event that is only 10 mins drive from home.  Its also the biggest and most scariest mountain we have ever attempted to climb at a speedy pace.  My heart starts to race just thinking about it and also to race in my home township is an absolute honor so figures crossed we get accepted.  Reid Park in Townsville at the end of August then the Noosa Hillclimb in November!

Here is an update on what we have done to Psicho since Mel hitting the wall at Pitsworth Sprints.

The Damage!

So another quick update!

I ended up scraping the diff (keeping the center and good bits off it) and getting this EL XR8 diff installed thanks to one of our sponsors Hillbilly Hotrods for donating it to us.

BF Powered XF Race Car - Page 4 29313107_1933624206662521_2458090107979169792_n


Our Main Sponsor Bursons Auto Parts donated diff oil and brake pads.  They also supplied us the sponsor sticker kit.  Caint wait to get her all sticker-ed up!

I made a new gearbox mount out of a piece of steel I found out at Pickapart and welded it to the banna type stock cross member.

We got a wheel alignment done by Fulcrum on the weekend and found the car is still quite straight after Mels crash which is fantastic news. Fulcrum also looked after us and gave us a huge discount on wheel alignments so they are basically out 5th sponsor. Thanks Pete at Fulcrum Rockhampton!

Time to try and get this thread up to speed.  So much is going on and so busy but I finally have a bit of time to jump on the computer.  I will breeze though quickly and everyone has already seen the Mt Morgan hill sprint update so here goes!


Here was a quick walk around vid on facey while prepping for Oakey Sprints

https://www.facebook.com/Joshy351/videos/1990405420984399/

We done a quick photo shoot with all three before the sponsor stickers get laid onto the Psicho XF
