The Ripper Test Run

October 16, 2010

Video of first test run at Willow Springs, the Streets. Car ran good except for a smokey engine problem. Engine definitely needs to come out for a tear down as something is not quite right. Ran good otherwise, and gearbox was a vast improvement over the TKO that was removed.

Note first lap was a warm up, skip to 5:00 minute mark that’s the start of the actual testing. And as always with The Ripper, PLAY LOUD
