Hey Guys,I have a new build log to share!
I have always had a soft spot for Group B rally cars,The 'Killer' B's were the most awesome bits of kits ever to grace motorsport,but due to some accidents they were disbanded
Group B was a set of regulations introduced in 1982 for competition vehicles in sportscar racing and rallying regulated by the FIA. The Group B regulations fostered some of the quickest, most powerful and sophisticated rally cars ever built and is commonly referred to as the golden era of rallying. However, a series of major accidents, some of them fatal, were blamed on their outright speed and lack of crowd control. After the death of Henri Toivonen and his co-driver Sergio Cresto in the 1986 Tour de Corse, the FIA disestablished the class, which was replaced as the top-line formula by Group A. The short-lived Group B era has acquired legendary status among rally fans.
Group B had few restrictions on technology, design and the number of cars required for homologation to compete—200, less than other series. Weight was kept as low as possible, high-tech materials were permitted, and there were no restrictions on boost, resulting in the power output of the winning cars increasing from 250 hp in 1981,the year before Group B rules were introduced, to there being at least two cars producing in excess of 500 by 1986, the final year of Group B. In just 5 years, the power output of rally cars had more than doubled!
This is a bit of a tribute for the (in my eyes) finest of all these 4x4 rocketships....The RS200!!
And in its road going form...
And a little demo of how good this cars really is!
The basis for this build is the White Survivor kindly sent to me from Bitfenix with the loop provided by Aquatuning.
This case suits my theme brilliantly with its white curves and solid construction.
Lets have a look inside?
200mm exhaust fan
First thing to do is remove all the bays,I will be fitting all the FC and whatnot internally so i can get clean lines on the outside.
A simple way of getting rid of rivets without drilling is to use a chisel and hammer..
Put the flat edge on the surface that the rivet is one and give it a wallop,the rivet will be cut like butter!.
Very easy to do,very good for tight access areas!
The loop will comprise of Alphacool kit,CPU block,GPU block and rads.
The CPU block
The GPU block
And the Backplate
None of my builds would be complete without Magoo adding his creative input which in this instance requires walkies..
for letting me have some fun with this build.
For providing the cooling.
