962-160 Brun Repsol 962C

by on Nov.27, 2010, under Racing

962-160 is being prepared to attend the Legends of Motorsport finale at Sebring. All new BREMBO master cylinders, clutch hydraulics, and fresh fluids throughout, now all we need are some fresh tires and beautiful weather. The last outing for 962-160 was Rennsport Reunion in November of 2007, where it was the fastest 962 throughout the entire weekend including all practice and qualifing. On the false grid for the feature race Porsche factory driver Patrick Long was invited to race another IMSA 962 and get his first taste of Daytona in a GTP. Pat made easy work of Lloyd and Mark Hotchkis to finish first but the Repsol 962 did set the fastest race lap. After the race Lloyd was quoted ” Once he got by me and Pat and Mark began to mix it up a little 3rd place was the best seat in the house, what a show!”

#0031 Update

by on Nov.27, 2010, under Racing

#0031 has had several mechanical upgrades since it’s last outing at Barber Motorsports Park. First upgrade was to the fuel delivery system with all new Bosch racing fuel pumps,billet fuel log, new Cohline hose. The linkage for the Kugel-Fischer injection was corrected as well.  Second was the gearbox. With Le Mans being this cars only race it was no surprise to find very tall gearing in the box and after some useful data from previous 935’s we have run we came up with a good all around set of gears that seem to work at most tracks we visit. Another thing that greatly helps is replacing the “spool” with a Guard Limited-Slip differential. Doing away with the “spool” will help the turn-in and pretty much do away with the on throttle “push” or “understeer”. Last we adressed the brake sytem with a fresh set of drilled brake rotors and endurance Pagid brake pads. These newer Pagid pads will offer better braking while also helping with rotor wear. 935’s commonly ran FORODO brake pads that were good at the time but just aren’t close to whats availabe today. 2 new AP master cylinders and fresh fluid along with a completely rebuilt pedal box should have things covered in the braking zone.  Back in the day 935’s ran 16″ front and 19″ rear tires, so we have selected to run current spec. DUNLOP radials in 17″ up front and 18″ in the rear.  These upgrades should produce both a quicker, better handling, safer car.
