6 Link ECU equipped cars at WTAC 2019

With so much to see track-side, in the pits and down Trader Alley, World Time Attack put on an amazing show once again this year. Sydney Motorsport Park played host to some of the Worlds best performance cars for two days of action in the scorching heat.

It’s no understatement to say the Time Attack, Flying 500, Drift and Hard Park line ups at #WTAC2019 were jam-packed full of incredible machinery.

Take a look at just some of the variety of cars using a Link ECU over the weekend….

 

  1. Gardner Cars Drift Ranger Ute

The LS powered Drift Ute, based upon the Ford Ranger, is the first of its kind worldwide. As much as possible, the factory chassis and rails have remained standard. One thing is obvious when it fires however, this is no ordinary Ranger engine. The custom (near) straight pipes and LS V8 engine combination absolutely roar. On track it looked and sounded great too, drifting for the first time ever at Sydney Motorsport Park. This is one amazing build and we were so fortunate to see the quality of it up close!

 

2. Cosmic performance Civic

This Skyline is more than just a fast car. It is a well-rounded Company Project by Cosmic Performance; a Melbourne based Link ECU Dealer. Owner, Henry Lim, and his employees have worked hard over the past two years on this R33 Skyline which puts out a reliable 500kw/800Nm. The engine consists of an RB30 bottom end, and RB25 head. A factory RB30 crank has been balanced with a Ross damper and NPC Chromoly flywheel, Manley Rods and CP pistons, all given a boost by the Garrett GTX3582R. The package is controlled by a Link ECU which monitors all the engine’s vitals including manifold pressure, air temp, oil pressure and temp, water temp and EGT. Data is displayed to Driver Dan Mayers in the cockpit via an AiM Strada dash.

 

3. Andy Gray Drift’s JZX100

Andy Gray’s 2017 / 2018 Championship winning car was shipped over from Powervehicles Japan for him to use at the event. Housed in the Chaser JZX100 Chassis, this 2JZ engine puts out 800 horsepower and a ton of torque to compensate for the slightly heavier body than the popular S-Chassis’s. It was evident just how good this package is when you could visually see the Scotsman pull away from chase cars on the drift course. Andy is of course, a class act himself and it was a honor to have him, his car & some of his team Down Under.

 

4. Ben Creswick’s Toyota Supra

Ben’s Toyota supra made its debut at Work Time Attack this year. A Sydney local, Ben has put a lot of work into this car and it definitely shows. The JDM 1998 RZ JZA80 features not only a tidy exterior, under the hood there is a powerful 2JZ engine. Competing in the Club Sprint class, the car is controlled by a Link Thunder ECU and puts out 800 horsepower. While he didn’t have a heap of luck at WTAC this year, no doubt we will see some more progress made with the car over the next few months and tearing around the track again next year!

 

5. B2R Motorsports GTR Skyline

Sydney based B2R Motorsports, once again entered the Nissan GTR – STFYTR – in the Flying 500 at WTAC. The R32 reached 245 km/hr this year. This is the World’s Quickest and Fastest manual street Radial Skyline GTR. It reached a New Pb 8.12 174mph earlier this year, with a 1.26 60Ft.

 

6. Subaru STi Time Attack

Adin Ahanger was driving this beautiful 2002 Subaru WRX in the Clubsport Time Attack Class. The car produces 421kw at the wheels and was one of the class favourites. With a Link G4+ PlugIn ECU, it is set up with full CAN integration, featuring dash logging and traction control. Unfortunately, an engine issue saw the team have to retire for the weekend. No doubt, we will see them back in action again soon. Tuner, Got it Rex, have plenty more drool-worthy Subaru’s on their Facebook page: Got it Rex.

Worthouse Drift Team Formula Drift Nissan’s

The Worthouse Drift team are a signature icon of the Drift world. Quality, consistency and skill are key staples for the team who put in thrilling, winning performances repeatedly in Formula Drift USA competition. While Worthouse Drift Pilot James Deane has dominated the past two seasons, winning two FD titles in the process, teammate Piotr Więcek has been providing strong competition to Deane of late. Więcek took his first FD Round win in Washington this year!

 

One thing is for certain – both drivers have the equipment they need to WIN.

 

Let’s take a closer look at the Worthouse cars being used in FD this season…

 

 

At the beginning of the year, the cars underwent a chassis change. The reason for this was simply because of the time it would take to rebuild the 2017/18 chassis, which had successfully completed two hearty seasons. In 2019, the Nissan S14 shells play home to a 980 horsepower 2JZ engine. ‘Robust is a must’ in this case! Sending the car sideways with such high horsepower places huge demands on Drift machines.

 

 

The Worthouse Drift Team competition cars are shipped to Europe at the end of each Formula Drift season; back to the team headquarters in Poland. While there, they undergo engine work and general maintenance. While the 2JZ remains 3 litre with the stock Toyota crankshaft, the head is CNC ported in Europe and 1mm oversized valves are used.

 

The Link Thunder ECU has been the ECU of choice since 2017. In the lead up to the 2019 season, the team also installed the Link Strada dash to display all the data from the ECU in real-time to the Driver in the cockpit. G-Garage, Poland, tuned the Link Thunder / 2JZ combination. Once the cars arrived back in the USA for the start of the 2019 Formula Drift season, Link ECU USA vice-president Jason Ofelein has been able to provide some additional support as both James and Pitor have been completing exhaustive testing throughout the season.

 

 

During testing, safety parameters are utilised to ensure that if anything drastic goes wrong, the engine will go into limp mode to prevent prior to nasty engine damage occurring. Over-boost safety parameters are also used, both in testing and competition, to prevent turbo or engine failure . This is particularly important considering the various aftermarket modifications done to the cars. The data logging capabilities are another of the key features within PC Link software which is used repeatedly throughout the year. Engine oil and coolant temperature and pressure are measured constantly via the logging. AFR is also closely monitored along with MAP, air intake temps and nitrous control.

 

Other specifications of the Worthouse 2K19 cars include:

Which suspension – BC Racing custom coilovers ZR series. 

Turbo – Borgwarner EFR 9180. 

Steering – Wisefab

Wheels – 7Twenty style 55

Engine – 2JZ GTE, CP Pistons, Carrillo rods, Kelford cams, Titan motorsports main caps, ACL race series bearings, Nitrous express direct port nitrous, Hypertune Intake manifold, ETS exhaust manifold, Tial wastegates.

Gearbox – Quaife 69G

Clutch – ACT tripple plate 

Differential – Winters quick change.

Axles – Drive Shaft Shop 

Seats – Corbeau revenge racing seats.

 

 

The Worthouse cars will be once again showing their class in California this weekend at the Formula Drift 2019 Title Fight. The Irwindale circuit always provides exhilarating competition which will be at an all-time high this weekend, as James, Piotr and Fredric Asabo battle for the 2019 Championship Victory.
