Fensport GT86R Race Project, Part 9 - 2020
You may think there's not much left to do with our GT86R, but there's always something to do! Over the winter of 2020 we changed the front end again. Realising the handling benefits of reducing weight and lowering the centre of gravity we set about making the intercooler pipes from aluminium, changing the route to lower the pipes and have a smoother flow to the intercooler. Also we relocated the accusump to the lower radiator support panel, the radiator itself was also re mounted to increase airflow, reduce drag and make room for the accusump. ...
Fensport GT86R Race Project, Part 8 - 2019
After 7 years of ownership you would think there wasn't much left top do, but there is always a way to make the car more competitive and we knew our competition would increase they're pace also. Main work for 2019 has been based around saving weight from the front end. By using an electric water pump we have saved all the rotational weight of the idler pulleys. The air intake has been relocated in to the front bumper to save the weight of the airbox. Total weight saving was nearly 15kgs from the front of the car! Revised wheel alignment...
Fensport GT86R Race Project, Part 7 - 2018
2018 will be a big year for us, we will be competing in the new Japanese Sprint Series and will have very stiff competition form all sorts of Japanese cars including high power 4wd cars. We knew we needed more grip and here is the story of how we built the revamped aero version of our GT86R. After struggling to control the car with 633bhp in 2017 we wanted to push for more power so we have completely redesigned the aero and grip of the car. Front splitter design & build. The front splitter is essentially 3 parts, the honeycomb inner part gives...
Fensport GT86R Race Project, Part 6 - 2017
2017 Modifications 2017 is the year to push even further and we are now using the car to see how far we can go with the FA20 engine and Ecutek ecu. Early 2017 we spent a lot of development time with the electronics systems, working hard on engine setup and integrating both the Aquamist ecu and Geartronics ecu to work with the Ecutek engine ecu. The Aquamist system controls the water methanol injection, injecting the correct amount to match the fuel delivery, the system adds ignition timing and subtracts fuel from the injectors to keep a stable AFR. It...
Fensport GT86R Race Project, Part 5 - 2016
After a good learning curve in 2015 the team's knowledge of tuning the GT86 continues to grow and the winter of 15/16 was spent designing new product to make the car much quicker in 2016. The first problem was fuel supply and we wanted to keep the original fuel tank so our "road" customers could follow us and get their cars up to similar power levels. We replaced the standard fuel bucket assembly with Avo's high capacity unit which allows much more fuel volume around the 265 litre per hour uprated fuel pump. From the pump we are now...
