Hill Climb Munkebjerg 2007


On Sunday the 12Th another session in the Danish Hill climb series were held in Vejle. The route is the best in the season and 85 vintage race cars were ready for the event. The weather was perfect and lots of people came by to look at all the cars and enjoy the race.

I improved the lap time at each race and we had no mechanical problems with the car! All in all a perfect day :-)


Check out the new videos in the vod:pod at the right or directly at here and here.

Driver info in the morning:

For the record we topped up the oil during the race at 98.284 mines.

Break light and video camera mount


We fitted a LED break light at the roll bar - It's always nice knowing the guy behind will notice I'm breaking....

As the next Hill Climb is coming up soon we also fitted a mount for a video camera on top of the roll bar. The first test shows the at picture are completely stable due to the fact that the camera follows the car and the rest of the vibrations are eliminated by the 'anti shake' software in the camera. Look forward to some nice shots of the Hill Climb next at the 12Th.


Ram Pipes


Finally installed the 30mm Ram Pipes I've had laying around for a while. I had ordered a new carburetor base plate and filter from as the pipes didn't fit in the K&N filters.

The filter is quit big and a new hole had to be cut in the spare bonnet to make it fit.

I also changed the fasteners for the bonnet as the old once just barley fitted between the wings and the bonnet and the spare bonnet needed some fasteners anyway.

So you might be wondering how the pipes work... They give a more smooth experience in the low revs and makes it's the car more responsible to changes in the throttle below 3000 RPM in higher revs I don't feel any changes.
That sounds all good but they are coming off anyway... for daily driving the noise they are adding don't match the better throttle response. Between 4500 an 5500 RPM the intake noise is insane and that's where I'm cruising so the conclusion is that the pips are only mounted at Hill climbs!

The new bonnet spring are definitely staying as they are much better than the old locks!
