Stl Solo 10252015 (Mini)

Slow in getting this out – had our annual year end fun event for Stl Solo – decided to put an interesting spin on things this year – we’d run the course forwards in the morning, then backwards in the afternoon! Per the “fun” event, we’d measure by our 2nd run – no matter how…

Evo UOA #3

For whatever reason this got published before my other oil sample I sent out did. 148 miles, 3 20 minute track sessions on it. Looks pretty darn good, I thought track would cause more wear but I guess not. For all it’s 300hp turbocharged madness, happy to see how little the wear is. I even…

Stl PDX 10242015 (Evo)

Did PDX in the Evo for the first time ever!! With the forecast being fairly gloomy, I didn’t make the call until the night before to run. My tires are bald and have been bald for quite some time, so running in the rain wouldn’t have been the wisest option for me. It stayed dry…

Evo UOA #2

Unfortunately noticed a bit more wear on this run than I would have liked, though as I understand it these are marginal increase at best. Not only that, but the run I am comparing it to, I did fill and drain a little thinking I was low on oil – I was not at the…

Mini UOA #5

This nearly confirms to be that the increase in moly is what the Mini really likes. This is a “thinner” oil than the Euro 5w30 – though, from the tested numbers, it’s actually thicker over all temperature ranges. I was mistaken in my autox run count as you may note from the report – it…

Corolla UOA #2

Guess I should have changed the oil sooner on this run. This was actually an earlier oil change than I had originally planned too. Was originally going to stay on this oil through the winter until 15k miles or so to more closely match the previous run. Good thing that I did not. This run…

BSCC 10182015 (Evo)

Day two of the doubleheader back home at BSCC: One of my favorite courses BSCC put on this year. Very straightforward and flowed well. The one thing I’ve noticed now with Boeing’s events though: they tend to try to make the element super tight at the end in order to slow people down before the…

CCSCC 10172015 (Mini)

Another day trip to one of CCSCC’s events in Rantoul: Course was actually one of my favorites thus far this season save for a couple elements. I was able to wide open all the way through the first stretch down the course, but it wasn’t until the last run that I tried going into third…

SJCam SJ4000+ Wifi Autox Review

Like many autocrossers, I’ve been hunting for a solid action camera that will record good, clear video without the pricetag of the GoPro. I’ve been using my own point and shoot for the last couple of years, which takes great video. However, it fails when it comes to sound (wind noise), and in general it’s…
