The First Comp Turbo CTRX Hubless

I don't race much other than Bowling Green . I just wanted my " 9 " and this car now has plenty to do it . I might be going to Lebanon Valley with Mr Spool & company later this summer . The main problem is the car only has a 6 point rollbar and I would probably get kicked out after a 9 sec. run . That's what I like about BG is the relaxed rules . So I might just run hard past the 1/8th then let out and save a full pass for when it's time to go . I will post up when I go .
I saw you at BG and talked to Russ for a bit . Hope you are doing well .
Sounds like you may need to do more than let out of it after the 1/8th, you may have to hit the brakes:)
 
The crazy part is no one else in the turbo world is talking about these, do a search, it literally comes back as just Comp, this thread and Rankin at PRI 2023. WTH

I guess GNs are the cutting edge tech car again. LOL

Keep us all in the loop, you're literally the only one that can I guess. 👍
 
Saw it mentioned on another turbo forum.
An "expert" immediately commented that any turbo without oil flow lube is junk.
He also commented that there were failures due to the compressor wheel coming off.
 
Well technology changes are good an bad sometimes. I am just curious how it works in the real world of Buicks . But I do believe Buick racing isn't what it use to be. ;)

That is a load of crap. They put restrictor fittings the size of a pin hole in the supply side of the cartridges now to restrict the amount of oil going into the shaft and bearings. Comp will tell you they just don't need the amount of oil like the bearings in a stock turbo did. One of the differences of 30 years of development.
