Sorry for the long break between videos everyone!! We have been thrashing away on Mullet, and we had to run up to Atlanta for the Trans Am Series race with Lee, but we are recovered and back to thrashing on Mullet to hopefully debut the car in some form at Cleetus and Cars Bradenton 2021!! In this video we go over some of the fluid plumbing with Earl's Ultra Pro crimp together hose ends as well as a review of some of the other work that has been completed on the car since the last video.

  • @KSR Performance & Fabrication I agree with you on the anti-seize on AN threads. People forget that they're compression fittings and that the threads aren't the sealing faces. Aluminum on aluminum galling is the worst! I really appreciate all the content you've been putting out! Thanks for putting in all the extra effort after working and taking care of family!

  • what you should do in the future once this thing is finished and you and cleet have some time, is remove the big box of a fuel cell in the bed for the street system. And turn the bed floor into the street tank, basically cut out the entire bed floor and have someone make a burn table program to cut out a solid sheet perfectly in the shape of the bed floor. And then calculate the depth required to achieve the desired volume and then build the rest of it with an eccentric pyramid bottom plate tapered toward the rear of the car with a sump. now THAT would be over the top custom. plus it would retain almost 100% of bed capacity for drag week to help make it a fully self contained provision setup

  • I have no intention to build any cars really ever, most I ever do is change fluids. I have to say I really really appreciate these videos that Kevin puts out. At first I found them a bit slow but I’ve really grown to appreciate the calm, laid back, and informative nature of the videos. This is one of those channels which really helps to teach a lot of people! Kevin’s channel and The Skid Factory are probably my favourite channels at the moment.

  • isn't a hose system something to behold? we started using crimped hoses in the 80's and never looked back.. looks like you do some great work... I have also used anti-seize on AN fittings.. it is especially important with alcohol and fuel motors where there is no lube property to the fuel.. Damage the anodize and you damage the fitting..

  • Any benefit of using one boost controller per turbo and using compressor speed sensor information to control the boost controllers to balance out the load between turbos to even out the flow. Long sentence but I think you get the point :-). If the flow is not close to similar on intake collector, this will create more turbulence and worsen the intake manifold efficiency and cylinder fill ratio.

  • I think you should put the water/ice tank drain behind the rear tire incase of a leak.

  • I use anti-seize to prevent galling as well. Be sure to keep it off the seats of the fitting, as it has an abrasive in it.

  • Just a thought on hose angle coming from heavy equipment where we make a lot of hoses I try to always leave a straight coupling on the opposite end of an angled coupling and use a fitting to achieve the required angles. This makes serviceability easier and straight couplings are usually more readily available.

  • You should ask Cleetus about their setup they had on Ruby's trans cooler because they were having overheating issues while cruising on the highway during race week the first time. The second time they had fixed it by changing the setup. Just a thought! Awesome work as always Kev. Your work is impressive, inspiring, and top notch. I would love to be able to be your apprentice. I would legitimately work for free.

  • Swapping fuelrails is nice, but just an idea.... Why not have a valve somewhere there where fuel can be redirected to the other fuel rail? As such, when on the road or on the track and an injector fails, they just need to swap the injector map over, flip the valve and off you go till next time it's possible to wrench on it. As I undestand it now, the fuel feed/return needs to be swapped manually/physically?

I know the plan is to run 6s with this car, but does it have the potential to ever break into the 5s? I have never had the experience to work on/play with cars of this caliber so I genuinely don't know. I'm still trying to get into the 10s on a budget 🤣
