Photos are on line. There's a lot to go through, but they're pretty good.

I had a look at what my instructor does..seems like a bit in touring cars..no wonder I didn't frighten him too much!!

I did learn lots from the twenty minutes or so with him...

As I was loading the car on the trailer I noticed damage to the front grill and a bit of a crack on the fiberglass but couldn't work out how..it looked like someone had reversed into the grill with a towing hitch..but knew that couldn't have happened as car not left alone..

Head scratching last night but no answers..

Took nose cone off this morning and found a two inch rock...

So pleased I have kept the grill on .and been discussing with the MD of Rush Motorsport in the morning about cooling and airflow and removing grill etc..

Also confirmed why I wear a helmet if I do take car out on road!

We checked Lionels oil at about 330 it needed a litre or so, stuck some of the dregs of 5w30 in and it needed another half a litre so Grabbed the other bottle (10w40) and Simon glugged some in. 
 

we both commented how it looked a bit thin. 
 

I decided to double check the oil - it was used deep fat fryer oil complete with chip bits that I’d not labelled properly. 
 

Decided to call it end of day and not start the car!

I'm surprised you didn't feel that when it happened? ..it must have made a big bang.

Oh dear.. 😞

 

 


We had a little chat, optimistically hoped it might just be a bearing replacement, but now I’ve heard the video…

 

Fingers crossed!

They like oil pressure 😄

 

 

So do all engines lol. I can't say anything as I've done 5 engines. But I found the biggest problem was oil weight when hot. Which I think you experiencced with lionel. It goes so thin. I only ever use miller's or Fuchs. The engine in the red duratec isn't that old is it
