    Unfortunately we did not make it to the water crossings before the knocking started. Although spectating on the second day of the rally we did see the Tiburon hydrolock and throw the rods out the side of the engine.
    We still think it was an oil pump problem but the bend rod is strange.

    the fact that it was the #1 rod leads me to think the oil pressure problem started it all. Could the rod have been bent the whole time? i.e. did you ever have the rod out of the block before this/do a compression test?

    We did have all the rods out. We weight matched the rods and pistons. I am sure we would have seen the bent rod if it was bent then.

    Default SOFR Update

    Well the Rally Car engine was not complete for SOFR so we went spectating instead.
    Took the VW Vanagon and camped in the Ohio State Park.





    Met up with Nick Bragg and Dominic DePaoli. They had a very good finish, 2nd in class and 15 overall.







    They were the only Audi in the race and they represented very well.
    Also supported the #212 Jetta of Ecker and Hardin



    Took a lot of video and made some highlight videos.
    Enjoy.
