2015 Mid Season Report

About halfway through the season now events wise, and a little over run wise. Thought it’d be a good time to break down what I’ve done this first of the year, and changes if any looking forward. Mini With the inclusion of the RE71Rs and a handful of newly competitive drivers in the STL region,…

Evo’s First UOA

Got the results from the Evo’s first UOA, attached below. Overall looks pretty good! Obviously no major problems here, and I’m glad they mentioned filtration. The reason I am doing UOAs for the Evo is to test how different oil filters work to see which will be the best for my personal use. If the…

StlSolo 6 – 07262015

Yet another weekend clouded by bad weather.. Started off with the Fun Ford on Saturday, where I volunteered and took two “fun runs” in a CS prepped NC Miata. Key here is that it was on RE71Rs – my first time driving on them, and I am a believer. The car just flat out sticks.…

StlSolo 5 07122015 (Mini)

Second part of the double header was back home in STL. Was a scorcher, and decided to run Heat 1 to get out faster and out of the sun. Getting heat was definitely not a problem this event, with it reaching 90 degrees by 11am. Really loved the course and thought it was well balanced.…

Decided to make my Evo up for the trip, as the north end courses are usually way faster than the normal configuration. CCSCC put up…

Evo AC Maint.

Noticed as soon as the weather turned warm this year the Evo AC wasn’t blowing any cold air. Upon further inspection it seemed the compressor wasn’t kicking on. I was worried something was broken with the compressor, and I tried banging on the compressor clutch with no luck. Upon further inquiry, it was suggested that…

StlSolo Novice School 07052015

StlSolo’s Novice School was this pas Fourth of July weekend and was a great way to get some bang for the buck seat time – and not just for students, but instructors too. Unlike the CCSCC school where there is an advanced and novice portion, this school is for novices only. The instructors are compensated…
