Had a lot of people codriving the Evo for the GAX event. The powertrain was solid, but unfortunately the brakes were showing their weakness. They actually started smoking while AD and I were codriving in the 2nd heat, so I decided to switch things up for the afternoon – I had TS run it in the 3rd heat on his own, and MP run it in the 4th on his own. Instead of driving my Evo in the 4th heat, to give my brakes a break I took out TS’s FRS. It was a blast, and really looking forward to driving a RWD car more in the future.
All 3 of the codrivers put down a faster time than I did, though I think I could have picked up some time in the afternoon. They were definitely driving harder, and I wasn’t comfortable with the brakes so I was definitely holding back a little.
In the FRS:
Things to work on (Evo):
- Line needs work
- Tighter on slaloms
- Early on the throttle
- 1/4th tank
- Determined to move the camber from -2.7 to -3.2
- 36psi all around
- ACD: Gravel; Dampers: 5 from stiff all around, RSB: middle
- 2016 Runs: 66 in the Evo tires (+7 AD, +6 Me, +7 TS, +6 MP)
2016 Run Count: 149 (+6 Evo, +7 FRS)
