BSCC 2019-3 07142019

After a near 3 month hiatus, had my 3rd autox of 2019. Given that I am still making tweaks with the Evo, I decided to run it again. Since the last autox, I switched from 10k rear springs to 11k, and flipped the rear bar back to soft. This was to give me the rotation…

SCCA PDX 06082019 – Autobahn South

As luck would have it, another dry forecast turned into precipitation for the second track day. Instead of the downpour like the last event though, we had mild sprinkling that was steady throughout. My biggest concern was when the “switch” would be from driving in the dry to driving in the wet – i.e., I…

SCCA PDX 05112019

Only way to top the first track day of the year is for it to be completely wet and cold. This was my first wet track event, and AWD really saved the day here. The instructor likened wet track days to having an additional 300hp – and it was totally true. Most of the RWDs…

BSCC 2019-2 04282019

Made a number of tweaks to the car based on how it felt at the first event. To induce a little more neutral handling, I flipped the RSB from the soft setting, which matched the stiffest setting on the 2018 bar, to the middle setting. I also switched to the track pads (ST43s) to get…

Finally got the car ready to run for the first event of 2019. Aside from the rear diff, the car’s had some minor tweaks to its setup that overall should not really impact the handling. Overall though, I was underwhelmed by the OS Giken 1.5-way. The manufacturers make a lot of claims about what this…

GAX 2018-7&8 11112018

Final event of 2018 is in the books! The morning session was in the 30s and difficult to drive, before it warmed up for the afternoon. Just need to keep getting seat time in the car to get used to being smooth with the throttle, yet aggressive with driving the car, carrying more speed, etc.…

Stl Solo 2018-10 10282018

Last event of the year for stlsolo, the 9th event was canceled. Not a great event for me, I spent the first 3 runs on overinflated tires before realizing I usually run 33/31, instead of 35-36 square like I do on the Evo.  I also didn’t walk the course, as I didn’t come in in…
