GL NCM 2021

Here we go, first competition weekend of 2021. The Evo has continued to perform flawlessly lap after lap, track day after track day – thank God. The car continued that trend through day 1 of the Grid Life competition. Back to NCM, where I was 2 weeks ago to learn the track and get some…

PST NCM 04042021

First off, let’s get the big stuff out of the way. Just as I set off for home after the track day, disaster struck – one of my Falkens, the rear left, started to delaminate on the outer edge, showing its cords. I drove to this event in the Evo with the Prius as a…

Resonated Test Pipe (Evo)

New part on the Evo today – early enough (just one autocross) that I’m considering it a pre-season mod. I replaced my 100 cell cat for a resonated test pipe. From the pics, it’s clear this will be a huge improvement in flow. Additionally, cars that run high ZDDP oil eat cats anyway. The pic…

CCSCC 03282021 (Evo)

I had a great start to the 2021 season in my Evo. The Sequoia is temporarily out of commission, meaning I had to drive the Evo up and down for the event – a nice call back to the pre-trailering days. I looked back at the archive to see when I last did a CCSCC…

Alignment 2021 (Evo)

I had already known I was going to want an alignment prior to the start of the season – I was expecting the camber to be a little lower in the front, so I had wanted to get that taken care of – what I didn’t expect was how off the entire car was –…

2021 Preseason (Evo)

For the first time, I’ve really been enjoying the off-season. 2020 was the first time I primarily focused on track days, and it’s been good to unwind and focus on other things. That said, I’ve got big goals for 2021, and I’ve got a number of changes to the Evo to help me achieve those…

2020 Season Recap (Evo)

Major changes came during the 2020 season in the form of an E85 tune, and wow – hard to believe I held off on doing it. With the introduction of the tow car, life on E85 has been very easy, with 20 gallons on board the Sequoia, along with all tools needed to service the…

SpoolinUp Coil-on-Pack

Another long-time modification that I’ve never posted on is my SpoolinUp coil-on-pack. I’ve had this for as long as I can remember, I think on my black Evo, and I was a relatively early adopter of the part. It is a massive improvement over the stock system with excellent build quality, including Denso coil packs…
