Thread: Rad 4 Racings GP Down under.

Ski M.D's GP Down under.
We started this project 10 months ago and the ski kind of went to the boat builders and was forgotten about for a few months but he filled some 70 holes in the hull and laid carbon into the floor and over the tunnel etc to cover the usual problems.
Next stop was the paint shop for our company colour, like it or not "yellow" it is. Hmm, new bumpers, mats etc etc.
We got an engine block from Mach 1 with Darton MID sleeves installed and purchased 104mm CP Pistons, Carrillo Rods, new everthing internal, balanced the crank, new head with Ferrea valves and Riva springs, Rad 4 Racing 8600 cam shaft, Rad 4 Racing Torque plate and built ourselves hopefully a super tuff engine.
Rad 4 custom fuel tank module with large intank pump and filters made the fuel system nice and tidy and well capable of any amount of HP fuel requirements.
New wiring looms and stripped them back to the bare minimum with custom battery box which I do not want to be the one fitting the battery one the Riva intercooler goes in.
Turbo manifolds are in production at the moment for the Garrett 30/76 with Tial wastegateand blow offs.
We wanted to run the Sea Doo pump so blew out a adaption plate to bolt it straight in as it went in the Doo. We are running a custom drive shaft which is 234mm longer than the stock Doo one and a Rad 4 Racing drive line seal as you would expect.
I will post up more in the next few weeks as we get closer to the water.....

-Very nice, but the Rad-racing seal would have been my last choice.
-You better pin the front of those Riva Racing sponsons. They will rip off after a while, injuring the rider, if you get unlucky.
-I really like the tie down.

Nice tie downs.
Well I am also using a Rapid Acceleration closed loop kit, but I see you approve of that.
My engine mount kit is made in America as is my IC kit but the Rad 4 Seal is better than anything else on the market at the moment.......way better than the one Skat spit out which is a copy of mine!!! I see in your other posts you dissaprove of people knocking off others parts.
Cheers for the heads up on the sponsons, I will make some new ones from Ali. Is it common knowledge that the Riva product is not up to the job?

... You don't need new sponsons. Just tap the backing plate at the very front, and put a 6mm button head thru the blade. They will last forever after that, and turn way, way better than before.

As you can see the sign guy is still plugging away at the graphics so I hope he is all done so I can get the covers back off and working under the hood.
I have the list of the final components required to complete the build and hit the starter so all things being good, three weeks to the water.
The list on the hood are a few of the people who have given me good service and assistance on this build.
