Car has made it to Germany, although I did have a power steering fluid leak; the elbow on the low pressure supply to the pump split and leaked. Fortunatly, it cant have happened much before we stopped at a services so it was discovered and we replaced the whole pipe from the res to the pump with a spare length of pipe i had.
The spacers for the pas pump where changed on friday, so hopefully it wont throw the belt anymore.
Only managed 2 laps so far; 1 lap the car overheated going up the hill after bergwerk so i had to abandon the lap and just cool it down.
Fixed the overheating issues by removing the front grille, topping up and bleeding the coolant, and topping up the oil.
2nd lap was much more eventfull. I would guess it came in at about 9.10 ish, which isnt that impressive, but there was a lot of traffic, and i was keeping an eye on the temps a lot. But the big difference i have noticed is the sheer pulling power up the hill. Have already had it at an indicated 125 up the hill and it could have been quicker still . It just pulls for england!
So, i have another 6 laps to get through yet atleast, and i will update again...
Long live the Sigma 6
