BSCC 1 – 04242016

Decided to take the Evo out today for the BSCC event, and turned out to be a good event for it. Course was a lot more open and favored big grip and big power, which the Evo has both of. Car is feeling pretty good where I have it, but the body roll up front is getting a little less comfortable. I was able to click off a 58.900 for my 2nd run, but oddly was not able to match it in any subsequent runs. I plowed big time on more than a few runs, caught not looking ahead. Might be due to how long the course was, nearly a minute. Was starting to lose focus out there a few times.

I think the time was good for fastest raw & 1st in index, though just barely. Was just odd how much I struggled after, which I think was also a lot due to me pushing way too hard in certain spots. The tires are still feeling pretty good, and the car is fairly neutral/touch loose. Still planning on moving forward with the FSB, and maybe setting the RSB to the middle setting after that. Not crazy about how I drove/the car handle when the tires started heating up, but still a lot of work to do.

Confirmed from the results that I was first in raw time and index for the first Boeing event. I was pretty sure I had hit a cone, but no one called anything in – must have stayed in place if I did! Better lucky than good sometimes! After more research, looks like the tires were definitely overheating on the Evo. Lot of load on those front tires, so I will be spraying them down every run after the 2nd run moving forward.

 

Things to work on (Evo):

  • Focus on line and car placement
  • Trying to carry too much speed in corners, need to do more slow in/fast out

Notes (Evo):

  • 1/4 tank
  • 36 psi all around
  • Tires should be sprayed
  • Shocks – 10/9, ACD on middle setting
  • Pax Points: 10,000; 1st in index
  • 2016 Runs: 12

2016 Run Count: 24 (+6 Evo)
