I love those XJSs. Hard luck but you'll do better next time.

I'm the Freud or Rat of this build. Big Gaz is the owner/driver and I'm the crew. I couldn't get to the event for it's maiden voyage (which killed me) but Gaz reports that up to the bonnet lifting it was perfect. It was stable, straight and tractable until the bonnet came up...

The car was on track for 200 but is only geared for about 210 currently with this motor as it is redlined at 6500. Once we go to the Turbo V12 which revs out to 9000 we should be good for a theoretical 250. We'd like to have the worlds fastest Jag eventually, driven by the worlds fastest accountant!

let me see 28's, that'd be a 2.5:1 9 inch yeah?

Cheaper by the dozen?

Lynchy, sorry to see the air brake cut loose on you, but yes, tin is easier to fix than straightening the chassis.

Goggles - yeah it's a 2.5 ratio in the 9". That was the cheapest part of the diff.

Re the V12 - just going off what's been done before but it will easily pull over 6500, I'm probably off the mark at 9k but 7500 is not unreasonable - I'll take the first piston for the collection though! The engine build will be a multi year project... The next year will be concentrated on the bus (mostly the sound system and A/C) and fixing up the Jag with a decent front bumper and stronger bonnet!

So..........

2 years and a new engine later the jag had its first run at dlra speed week 2015 and ran a 224.7 first mile on the Monday with a strong tailwind! Great result, but wait there's more!

Tuesday we convinced him to increase his rev limit and ran a 236mph pass!

I think he will try to find a better rear end ratio than the 2.5 or will try the overdrive unit he has. It can go faster, it just accelerates up to top speed so easily.

Geez, Lynchy - we thought you fell off the face of the planet!

EXCELLENT NEWS on the Phat Cat! 

So are you thinking of doing the mods today on the salt, or change it out for next year? 

You do it on the salt, you're a braver man than I.

Unfortunately I had to leave the lake to head back to Brisbane so am no longer at Lake G. He won't be fitting anything at the lake so at best it will be next year. I'm also not sure if he'll take it out for another run or if he'll park it for the rest of the week?

On other Jag news, the little E-Type that comes out went 167mph with a 6 cylinder.
