Mr Fox's Puma

Hi. Car looks good! You say you are running overall +63 front. But the et15 wheels are +20 each compared to oem so totally +40. Have you done anything else?

My Puma.. Maximum Track Attack!!

Nice to see progress with this car! How do you feel the 17inch wheels compared to the 15inch ones? I have both the oem 195/50/15 and a mo5 set of 205/45/16 (2.3% bigger radious). On the road the 16" seem a bit more sluggish (bigger radious and heavier rims) but the car feels a bit more eager to dire...

My Puma.. Maximum Track Attack!!

I just wired it into the existing plug using a couple of spade connectors. In the oem fan there are two pair of wires going to the fan. One goes to the centre of the fan (high fan speed) and the other pair goes to the bottom and right of the fan (low speed). I was basically asking in which of the t...

My Puma.. Maximum Track Attack!!

Hi a few pages ago I saw that you went for a slimline fan. I want to do the same as I'm in the process of supercharging my puma and the oem fan gets in the place. How did you wire the new fan? Because the oem is 2 speed and the aftermarket one are usually 1 speed. Do you get rid of the resistor and ...

The mount which the gearbox hangs from is notorious for changing shape because it has gaps both from the upper and the down area. This has as a result the gearbox fouling the lower strut brace. These gaps could do with a bit of windscreen glue.

For that price I'd also be interested. (if they can send in Greece).

Nice work Sinisa. I don't know what that hole in the back of the engine block is. I agree that torquing the vib damper(the 90deg part) with the engine out of car is easy. Of course you have to time the engine after that. The difficult part for me was torquing the cams (especially the inlet which goe...

Possible wheel bearing issue

If the vibration is more evident on full throttle at max torque rpm (around 3500-4000) then as tuono wrote it's probably an inner joint. Classic puma problem I've replaced two in mine.

Very nice bhp curve. Do you have frp cams or just the lms inlet. And frp ecu iirc? I've found some adjustable wishbones but to be honest they are cheap so this makes me suspicious about the quality (plus I use my puma as a road car so rose-jointed wishbones may be too much). But maybe they are an op...

I didn't know it was a Getrag one. Is IB5 also Getrag? Probably it has a rather large margin of safety as st180s with remap+exhaust+intercooler typically have 230+bhp and circa 350Nm. I think the same was truth about st150 where the ib5+ gearbox was supposed to not have great strength but the rotrex...

Some st180s go past 350Nm so I think the gearbox will hold way more than 285Nm. But time will tell!! :lol:

Nicely done! Now let's see how it turns out on track!
Maybe the next who thinks of getting these (me included) could request from compbrake to make a top mount with 45mm diameter to avoid the hole widening.

IRC a guy in zsoc designed these top mounts for his own fiesta racecar and got compbrake to manufacture them. I have seen them fitted (i mean the original design).

I have contacted compbrake for the solid top mounts. They told me that they can do them with built-in 1deg negative camber and 1 deg caster. (extra from the oem setup). I think it's a good idea. My question is how do you mount them accurately because I have the impression that they can move around a...

Really purposeful stance!!

What spacers are you running front? (or are the wheels like et15)?
Does the wider front track have an impact on steering feel/steering self-centering?

Obviously i meant that the vibrations from the engine are more pronounced not less (i made a mistake in my previous post-now edited).
For a track car i would also definitely go for the race spec ones.

Looking forward to seeing how this project evolves.

They make two versions. The competition which they advise to use only on track and the fast road. My brother has the fast road(set of 3) in his puma and they make the vibration from engine a little more pronounced but definitely bearable. As an added bonus the front end of the car feels more connect...
