Hi. Red 202 overheated last week. Symptoms:
White smoke from exhaust then engine bay
Plenty of coolant in radiator
Coolant pi$$ing out of radiator overflow pipe when running
Watery oil leaking from rear of motor

Fast? Yes. Top fueller it isn't.

Chasing 200mph in an electric dragster: https://www.youtube....
It is cutting edge electric technology. I guess when they mentioned it getting a V6 engine in another article they were referring to V.6, as in Version6.
It just somehow couldn't be the same as feeling the noise and feeling the ground shake when a top fueller takes off. Put fossil fuels in the dragsters I watch thanks.

Rebuilt blue or black 202

Hey guys, I'm chasing a blue or black recon 3.3 for the kingswood daily driver, in the Perth region. I need to do the rings on my current engine, and I simply don't have the time.
Can anybody recommend a mob that might have an exchange on the shelf?? Otherwise I'm up for freighting one I saw in Melbourne.

Thanks for any and all help
Rhys

GPS speedo accuracy

I have a GPS map thing called a Navman. It shows current speed. I have now bought a HUD thing that projects current speed onto the windscreen. A test with both running side by side showed 80kph on the HUD, and 75kph on the Navman. I thought that all these GPS gadgets were spot on. Has my faith been misplaced?
