:oops: not sure what happened to the last one yet. Its all potted but at some point I will cut it open and have a look.

Interesting that the last one was rated to 6 amps load per side of the car and this one is now 10 amps. I take less than a 1/10th of this being all LED but they must have changed the design. Did they find a weakness :?:

Once I am on the road I have a Carbon 'itch' that needs to be scratched! Got a couple of ideas of things I want to make and having a couple of reasonably large ovens at work that go to about 135°C I will be trying low temp pre-preg :D


New airbox to replace the temporary, experimental fabricated ally one thats falling apart after 5ish years.

Me too. Had to destroy the mold to get the lid out and there's a bit of a rescue operation ongoing to make it look OK. I'm more interested in how adding a bulge will affect performance. The old one didn't have enough clearance over the throttles in order to fit under the bonnet. The new one has a bulge through the bonnet (hence why appearance matters).
