BSCC 2019-5 09212019

Boeing’s 5th event at Family Arena today. Had hoped the Evo would be ready to test n tune the new diff out, but unfortunately neither the diff nor the new FMIC were ready anyway – which is why it’s always nice to have a  “back-up” car. The M3 has been running great, with no issues.…

SCCA PDX 09152019 – Autobahn North?

SCCA PDX 08232019 – Autobahn South

After 2.5mo hiatus, back on the track at Autobahn Country Club South. A good number of minor tweaks were made to the car, and some significant driving changes for me.With picture perfect weather, I was really looking forward to seeing what I could run in the car. I set a rough goal of a 1:40,…
