We are taking the car to the Lake Superior Performance Rally next weekend. It's not in the rally nor is it a course car but it has been invited my members of the Historic Rally Group to display the car with theirs and also to perform a few parade stages for the benefit of the spectators and maybe some lucky passengers. We will be spending three days in the company of two Audi qauutros, A Rothmans Escort and possibly a Lancia Delta Integrale.

So of course that meant "UPGRADES". Well, some little tweaks anyway.


First we added a small decal to the rear. The car is officially the "Carrera RX" now.

Then we fixed the door opener strap that fell off a few weeks ago when a small circlip let go. We went with a small screw and nylock nut this time.

We changed the transaxle fluid. We have been hearing stories of GL5 oils disloving the brass synchros of older cars so wanted to address that. Miller's assures us this stuff won't and we have been very impressed with their engine oil so far so thought we'd try it out. The old (not so old) oil will be sent away for anaysis.

Finally we bolted back on our modified front skid plate we received from Thompson Racing Fabrication. We were never fully satisfied with the original iteration though it worked fine. We tested it out on our trailer once. We just thought it need dressing up a bit. Looking over pictures of factory cars from back in the day it soon became clear what was needed: reinforcing ribs running the entire length.

The welds are pure art!

We are also hoping to get these door pockets on as we don;t have anywhere to keep our knick-Knacks in the car.

Finally, we thought you might be interested to see our next project. It's a UR Quattro Rally Build. A bit like this only we are doing a full restoration and rally shell to base the project on. You can find out more [URL="[url]https://teamilluminata.com/pages/quattro-rally-build"[/url];]here[/URL].

This past weekend, along with a few friends we were invited up to show off our historic rally cars at the Lake Superior Performance Rally (previously Press On Regardless) on the beautiful Keweenaw Peninsula in Michigan's Upper Peninsula.That's Peninsula Squared! From the display in the spectator guide it looks like the were expecting us.

It's quite a long tow for us from all the way down state so we broke the trip into two sections which allowed us to meet up with the two quattros in Newberry on Wednesday evening and trundle the rest of the way to Houghton Thursday morning.

Plenty of rest stops and email checking on the way up. Work never stops.

Obligatory photo crossing the Mackinac Bridge. Windy and wet.

image by Team Illuminata Motorsport, on Flickr


Here we are pulling out of Newberry. Even colder and wetter now. (33F)

image by Team Illuminata Motorsport, on Flickr


From the road it appeared we were going to hit peak leaf peeping season.


image by Team Illuminata Motorsport, on Flickr


All arrived safely at race HQ hotel.

image by Team Illuminata Motorsport, on Flickr

image by Team Illuminata Motorsport, on Flickr


As it was only around noon we had lunch and went for a drive up the Keweenaw Peninsula. But first an obligatory stop at a parts store for some running repairs. Apparently a quattro tradition this time of year.

image by Team Illuminata Motorsport, on Flickr


Once we fixed the 84's errant turn signal we found some winding roads to open up the cars a bit.

Then a rest by Lake Superior.

before heading up Brockway Mountain where the other quattro promptly overheated due to a melted fuse holder. After lunch we headed back to Houghton as we'd been asked to park the cars outside the SAE Rally Forum at Michigan Technology University where they caused quite a scene.

The next day was the start of the rally so we were up bright and early to stage the cars at the entrance to Parc Expose, basically a car show before the event. Our number was swelled by the addition of a MK2 Ford Escort and Saab 96.

Spotted this in Parc Expose.

image by Team Illuminata Motorsport, on Flickr


Once the event was underway we packed up and moved Historic Rally Cars HQ an hour south to Baraga to be closer to the action. Once back in our trusty (or not) cars we shot over to the first service in Sidnaw where a few spots had been set aside for us to pose. Fortunately thre weather had improved tremendously by this time.

image by Team Illuminata Motorsport, on Flickr


We were thankful to get an early night after all the driving the last few days. Even more thankful when the bar bill arrived as our hotel was owned by the local tribe so, seemingly no federal alcohol tax! It was just a short jaunt over to L'Anse in the morning to exhibit the cars once again at the parc expose and hang out with rally people once more. It was a great venue being right on the water and the cars were as popular as ever.

image by Team Illuminata Motorsport, on Flickr


Our next engagement was to run the spectator stage in downtown Houghton but before we could get there we needed lunch, and to visit another parts store. This time the Escort needed a new battery.

Here's a video of our exhibition runs through Houghton by Ben Newburn. The stage was a great way to end the rally and very popular with the spectators.

and here's one very happy future rally rally driver.

On the way to dinner the Escorts transmission decided to end it's relationship with its engine so we had to stop again. Fortunately there were enough tools and bolts to effect repairs and, as a bonus, were were in a great spot to experience the sunset.

image by Team Illuminata Motorsport, on Flickr



Another cheap night in the bar capped of a great few days hanging out with car friends and showing off the cars. The CarreraRX never missed a beat and only required the attentions of a gas station while the, oh, never mind..........

If you get chance you really should attend this event; it possibly the best rally in the country. Thanks to Tim Maskus for making this all possible.

Our car has been sidelined by our 85 UR quattro that recently came back to life after a 2 year engine refurbishment. With winter looming we have been driving that every chance we have gotten, as you can imagine. However we did register for the Detroit SCCA RallyCross on December 3rd which, by happy coincidence is where Ryan Symancek of /DRIVE filmed most of this last year. Enjoy.

We put the winter tires on a couple of weeks ago:

Not because it was snowing but because we entered a local Rallycross.

and the conditions were cold and wet. Not great for proper rally tires.

We still slid about quite a bit

We didn't hit any cones all day and finished a respectable fifth in class. Not bad considering we haven't driven in anger for six months. When we finished the car was very dirty:

Last weekend was our annual pilgramage up north to the Sno*Drift Rally. As usual we had a vendor booth and used the Carrera RX in our display and to go spectate. However, before we set off we had some winter prep to take care of. Our 911 does not get very warm in the winter, the inside does but the oil does not. We rarely see it rise above 160F so we took Tuthill's advice and replaced the Miller's 10W50 race oil with their 5W40 race oil. Tuthill runs an ice driving school in Scandinavia during the winter and swears by this stuff.

We also shielded the engine oil cooler with cardboard to retain some heat. We have found this to give us around 10-20 degress more oil temperature.

image by Team Illuminata Motorsport, on Flickr


Then we were off.

image by Team Illuminata Motorsport, on Flickr


No snow on the ground and temperatures in the 40s but we were assured that 4 hours north of us it would be below freezing and snowing. Good, as conditions up there had been quite warm and melted the snow pack they had built up already on the stage road turning them into ice rinks. A good snow covering would help all the competitors out. We were not too disappointed but even more snow would have been welcome.

image by Team Illuminata Motorsport, on Flickr


We unloaded the car and retired to how rental house to catch up with friends. We spent the next two days camped out in our display and driving between stages enjoying the rear wheel drive traction from the Nokian R2 winter tires. At one stage we thought we would need help after parking on an ice covered steep hill but the care just pushed its self out to the amazement of all around. We even manage to recruit a new fan and future rally champion.

When we returned home we were happy to find a magazine from Norway in our mail box with a story about our car in it. Thanks BIL. Anyone speak Norwegian?

We were honored to have our 911 Carrera RX invited to the Automotive Hall of Fame in Dearborn last week. It was displayed in the atrium outside a meeting hall in some very distinguished company. First we had to bring it home

It's been nearly two months since our last update so no wonder those upstart safari cars ^ thought they could sneak in. OK, back to our car.

In Aprilhe car was invited to the motoring club car show at Oakland University and displayed next to the FSAE car we sponsor.

image by Team Illuminata Motorsport, on Flickr


During April and early May, as time permitted we did a few minor mods:

We replaced the cone seat steel lug inserts with ball seat so all our Porsche wheels can now use the same lug nuts.

image by Team Illuminata Motorsport, on Flickr


and then some hood pins, front only for now. Rear looks more involved.

image by Team Illuminata Motorsport, on Flickr

image by Team Illuminata Motorsport, on Flickr


and finally a period rally computer.

Last week we dragged it down to Ohio to display it and spectate at the Southern Ohio Forest Rally

We still want to drop the engine soon and refurbish the intake tract but first we need to get our 85 quattro running right so it can take over the Carrera RX's duties. Bloody CIS injection woes!

Our 85 UR quattro is running sufficiently well enough to tackle solo classic car duty at events so we decided to drop the engine in the 911 Carrera RX.

Before we got carried away and disconnected everything we had the presence of mind to do a compression test. We think it went well.

image by Team Illuminata Motorsport, on Flickr


Plugs look OK too

image by Team Illuminata Motorsport, on Flickr


We have a five week window before we need the car again so we got a wiggle on:



<iframe width="840" height="472" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/vDWWLwnW8E0"; frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>


and 1 minute and 40 seconds later it was out.

image by Team Illuminata Motorsport, on Flickr


Ok it took a bit longer than that. About four hours over three days I think. Now we start in on refurbishing the top. Here's what we are thinking:


New Heater ducts
New Shifter coupling
Intake manifold gaskets
Clean Injectors
refurb air flappy door thing
replace Rubber hoses
replace Fuel lines
Adjust clutch
Replace Plugs
Replace Leads
Replace Distributor cap
Replace Engine mounts
Replace Engine crossbar
Replace Left camshaft oil line
Valve clearances
Replace Air filter
Replace 02 sensor
Fix oil Leaks
Rear Hood pins
Refurb tinware

money and time permitting of course.

Car is running a bit rough and making some popping noises. Also doesn't like part throttle but idles well and pulls strong. Would like to dress up the engine bay a little too. Maybe some steel braided lines instead of OE replacements. Can you think of anything else we can do?

Tear down is nearly complete so we took the car off the lift and pushed it back into the showroom. Looks odd so high in the rear.

image by Team Illuminata Motorsport, on Flickr


It didn't take long before we found our first issue. This might need cleaninig.

image by Team Illuminata Motorsport, on Flickr


We soon had the intake manifold off the engine.

image by Team Illuminata Motorsport, on Flickr

image by Team Illuminata Motorsport, on Flickr


and found some more, not unexpected problems.

image by Team Illuminata Motorsport, on Flickr


A bit more wrench wiggling and we had the shroud off too.

image by Team Illuminata Motorsport, on Flickr

image by Team Illuminata Motorsport, on Flickr


A few more things to address.

image by Team Illuminata Motorsport, on Flickr

image by Team Illuminata Motorsport, on Flickr



Generally speaking there were no surprises so we think we'll push on with our original plan. There was one little wrinkle: a morning spent googling "Individual throttle bodies Porsche 3.2" !! Maybe next time eh?

The 911’s engine is back together. First we painted the valve covers red because racecar.

image by Team Illuminata Motorsport, on Flickr


Then our cleaned and tested fuel injectors arrived from Cruzin Performance.

image by Team Illuminata Motorsport, on Flickr


We repainted all the tinware

image by Team Illuminata Motorsport, on Flickr


Then replaced the intake manifold connector with a silicone one from Vibrant.

image by Team Illuminata Motorsport, on Flickr


We took advantage of the open engine bay to install some Sparco hood pins

image by Team Illuminata Motorsport, on Flickr


Then our new intake gaskets arrived for TRE Motorsports

image by Team Illuminata Motorsport, on Flickr


And a new engine cross member from Rennline

image by Team Illuminata Motorsport, on Flickr


Munks Motors rebuilt all our fuel lines with Aeroquipe hoses

image by Team Illuminata Motorsport, on Flickr


And Wevo sent us some performance engine mounts.

image by Team Illuminata Motorsport, on Flickr


Finally we slapped the engine back in and took it for a drive but not before replacing the rear anti roll bar drop links.

image by Team Illuminata Motorsport, on Flickr


The result of all this effort? The engine starts easily now and goes straight to fast idle then settles down to a smooth 850 rpm. No popping and bucking anymore and it pulls a lot smoother too.
