^ Thread has been up for some time, and is here: viewtopic.php?f=55&t=2610

Over the weekend I drove #34, too. Nice little car, goes pretty well. I don't fit properly in it, though :-D Probably need a thread for that one at some point, doesn't exist just yet.

I don't know of anyone close right now. Not even me. I would personally like to nab 40th. And with how much I need to do before I can FreeEMS the 740, there's ample opportunity to help me achieve that in the mean time! So, who's it going to be, then?

I've changed my mind, I just saw a highly suspicious thread that could be a candidate for 39th place, here's a link: viewtopic.php?f=13&t=2651

Me, it was me! Who next? Me again? Ned? I want 40! But I also want to see Ned come through with the goods :-D

Volvo could be legal next weekend if I work hard this weekend and next week... :-) What then? EFI could be next. Drum roll :-D

Fred.

At the rate I'm going, m2cupcar will be next with the GRM race car! :-( I would still like to predict myself, but I have no time frame, so it's anyone's at the moment. I will just sulk a little and then move on if it's not me :-D

OK, the race is on.

Sometime on Saturday yankee/rebel time, the GRM car is likely to
run. My mission is in the next 4 days (including today, morning here)
to run one of the three Volvos I have and claim 40th for a 240 or 740.

It'd be wrong not to try. :-p

I have other things to achieve in that time frame, too. Nothing like a
bit of international competition to light the fire under your arse/ass
(poor donkey!). So by Saturday night I need to succeed, or I've failed.

If I fail, then I'll probably stop trying due to other priorities, which will leave 41 free, and 42 for someone lucky after 41.

I hope 42 is suitably awesome. ;-)

Setbacks, plenty of those, yes. :-( Progress, some of that, too. :-)

Coil/ignitor combo pinout and wiring is known. Signal style is not, but is highly likely to be darlington style.

Crank wheel is 22-1 times two/44-1-1, ie, dizzy mode 22-1, and required reverse polarity VR wiring to function correctly due to being "missing hole" style. Here's a diagram:

EDIT: Link to the 244 thread where I'll continue this discussion in more detail: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=2728

I lost, Rob/Steve won, around 6am my time :-) I expect we'll see a thread soonish. They're busy boys right now, though.

List updated, graph updated. Just need the thread now :-)

New goal 240 should be 042, but I'll settle for 041 :-D
