    Hey Guys,I have a new build log to share!

    I have always had a soft spot for Group B rally cars,The 'Killer' B's were the most awesome bits of kits ever to grace motorsport,but due to some accidents they were disbanded

    Group B was a set of regulations introduced in 1982 for competition vehicles in sportscar racing and rallying regulated by the FIA. The Group B regulations fostered some of the quickest, most powerful and sophisticated rally cars ever built and is commonly referred to as the golden era of rallying. However, a series of major accidents, some of them fatal, were blamed on their outright speed and lack of crowd control. After the death of Henri Toivonen and his co-driver Sergio Cresto in the 1986 Tour de Corse, the FIA disestablished the class, which was replaced as the top-line formula by Group A. The short-lived Group B era has acquired legendary status among rally fans.

    Group B had few restrictions on technology, design and the number of cars required for homologation to compete—200, less than other series. Weight was kept as low as possible, high-tech materials were permitted, and there were no restrictions on boost, resulting in the power output of the winning cars increasing from 250 hp in 1981,the year before Group B rules were introduced, to there being at least two cars producing in excess of 500 by 1986, the final year of Group B. In just 5 years, the power output of rally cars had more than doubled!

    This is a bit of a tribute for the (in my eyes) finest of all these 4x4 rocketships....The RS200!!

    And in its road going form...

    The basis for this build is the White Survivor kindly sent to me from Bitfenix with the loop provided by Aquatuning.

    This case suits my theme brilliantly with its white curves and solid construction.

    Lets have a look inside?

    200mm exhaust fan

    First thing to do is remove all the bays,I will be fitting all the FC and whatnot internally so i can get clean lines on the outside.

    A simple way of getting rid of rivets without drilling is to use a chisel and hammer..

    [​IMG]

    Put the flat edge on the surface that the rivet is one and give it a wallop,the rivet will be cut like butter!.

    [​IMG]

    Very easy to do,very good for tight access areas!

    The loop will comprise of Alphacool kit,CPU block,GPU block and rads.

    And the Backplate

    None of my builds would be complete without Magoo adding his creative input which in this instance requires walkies..

    Thanks to

    [​IMG]

    and

    Found some G1/4 Banjo bolts......

    [​IMG]

    These with the copper tube I use,or maybe even braided hose, would really carry the Rally theme off,Just need to find some that are better to look at.......

    I was hoping to find some with a more automotive look

    Ok,this update is about flipping the tray and having a look at what space i have.

    ATX....not cool.
    I am a fan of R-ATX and with this case its simple to do.

    [​IMG]

    Drill out all the rear panels rivets and get the tray out.

    [​IMG]

    Flip her over and slide it in.

    [​IMG]

    TA DAAH!
    All the rivet holes line up,its only the top of the case where I need drill fresh holes.

    Test fit the rad? Yeah,why not.

    [​IMG]

    It fits.
    The bleed port on the top has just volunteered to be the new drain.

    That mesh over the fans has to go...

    I wont be using the Corsair fans,I will be using BitFenix Spectre PRO's,I used them to get a rough idea of how it all fits.


    Rough cut the grill out,this is being replaced with mesh covering the whole open section.

    [​IMG]

    Filed and fitted.

    [​IMG]

    Get the trusty donkey PSU in for a test fit.

    [​IMG]

    I will be using a 2013 Corsair GS600 for this build,dont need massive power this time round.

    More updates coming soon,I need to get some work done on Arctic Water first tho.....
