Anders, I can say without much fear of being wrong, that you've done a first on the Forum when you mentioned that you turned your engine to 66,000 rpm.  Then you added that it was done without maximum boost, and if you keep it low the engine will be safe.

Yep - I can say pretty well that none of us has ever even thought of having a engine that'll spin past 20,000 - much less over 60k. shocked shocked

SSS, Rick V and Glen might disagree  cheers

Okay, Mr. Smarty Pants.  I should have said "Very, very few of us have ever. . .".

There.  Is that better? evil

Well, many of you have a turbocharger that revs over 100.000rpm. My engine is just a turbo with a kerosene burner instead of a piston engine, simple as that. smiley

Old Scrambler, what do you mean by more front fender? More cover on the sides or should it extend more forward?

Today I got the final modifications done on the bike and have started packing for Speed Weekend, lots and lots of stuff! smiley



I fitted a green LED light to the dashboard that is connected to the fuel pump so it lights up when the fuel pump has power. That way I can clearly see if there is power to the pump during the start, if any of the Hobbs safety switches are deactivated due to loss of oil pressure or a too high boost pressue the pump won´t get any power and without the LED it is very difficult to tell.



About then I remembered my old bike stand I bought for my Hayabusa, after making a steel rod that fits inside the rear wheel axle I could use it on the turbine bike as well!



Since the throttle potentiometer was very exposed for water thrown from the front wheel I made a shield for it in aluminum, I don´t want to box it in since that would only increase the risk of water damage.



I also made a set of transport lids for the air intake and exhaust pipes so I won´t fill the engine with snow and dirt while hauling it on the trailer to Speed Weekend.



Tomorrow and on sunday we will try to get the twinturbo jet kick up and running, Olov has worked hard on it and it is 99% ready for a test run now. Keep your fingers crossed! smiley

Cheers!

Thanks!

Yesterday we got the other race vehicle sorted out, judging from the sound it will be a threat to my bike if Olov has the balls to run the 2000m course flat out. smiley



One of the turbos started leaking oil so we had to disassemble it, luckily it was the oil tank vent that was blocked so with a better vent the oil leak disappeared. Sorry for the jibberish language. smiley



Cheers!
