not heard from Matt today but found the timing website and does not look good...case of flyin and dying...some quick laps followed by slow laps and pitwork.

dunno if they fitted that 2nd oil cooler as advised but summit up.

Not 100% but sucking air me thinks fuel surge. I modded to 12v only running. Matt fitted a swirlpot after. They where loosing pressure after 10 laps. So i think pump over heating. Also fpr fitted on the bulkhead set at 4.2 bar as per mazda manual. Dont know tbh. Its getting a new tank and redesign.
