I drove this thing at the event on the 10th, kinda.   Suffered misfiring issues just before arriving to the track and battled it all night.   I got maybe 9-10 runs in with a car running 100%.  Suspension seemed close to what I want.  The front wheels offset is a bit much.   The fact that the car is basically square makes it kinda twitchy but I think I can tune and drive around that at least some.

I keep loosing coil packs.  1 they are junk yard coils, and 2, I think we found today that we were running wasted-wasted spark instead of wasted spark, so I think we can have that fixed soon.

On the upside.   KP got some rad photos of the car :)

General Discussion / Donut meet.
« Last post by SidewaysEightSix on March 03, 2018, 09:36:54 PM »
I'm posting this last minute, sorry


There's a meet going down tomorrow (March 4th) at Beyond Donuts at 83rd and Union Hills.  I'll be there, Fida will be there in the 1uz Corolla, maybe Dan and Pizza chris too.   Get there early cuz parking was impossible last time.   This meet is bigger than you think.  Come get sushi in the racecars and donuts for dessert. (The pastry kind, or well both I guess if you don't do the car one on site)

Gauge cluster / gauges                                           - Yea, that would be important. (I have a oil pressure gauge lol.  Water temp is steam/Fuel Gauge is a stall/Voltage Gauge is nothing works/Fuel Pressure is in the engine Bay.   Or I can plug in a laptop and data log)
Install magnet inside gas door compartment             - Tape  (Solid Plan-B)
Bleed rear foot brakes                                             -Easier with help (Indeed)
Fida wants to install a temporary dummy alarm light. - Remove battery? (As in if the ECU gets any alarm condition a orange light will go on.)
Put the radio shroud in                                             - Lots of sharp metal pieces under there, good idea. (It also looks much nicer)
Foil tape the firewall/floor openings                           - That passes tech?  (It does in Formula Drift *shrug*)

I might be able to help on Saturday...  (I have Saturday off due to having to work Sunday per IT guys request, so maybe I can buy pizza.)


Musselman is March 4th or April?   I won't be doing anything other than the donut meet this weekend, in fact work may be stopping me from that.

Off the top of my head...

Gauge cluster / gauges
Foot plate for passenger side
Tidy up and repair a couple small wiring things
Cut/shape/finish the side skirts and install
Install the diffuser
Make front canards
True alignment and corner balance
Replace transmission tailshaft seal
Install magnet inside gas door compartment
Make a carbon Sunroof delete
Solid mount the strobe controller box instead of zip ties

However....

Realistic drift event prep:

Bleed rear foot brakes
Top off trans fluid
Check air pressure on tires and spare tires
Fida wants to install a temporary dummy alarm light since the gauges aren't done.
Put the radio shroud in
Top off the fuel tank
Pick up the new helmets
Foil tape the firewall/floor openings
Nut and bolt anything un marked

I think that's about it.   It's more or less already ready to go.

Me and the woman went shopping for helmets yesterday.   We didn't intend to match but we both ended up liking HJC helmets and their flat black. 

She got a FG-17,  I got myself a AR-10 iii.    Both are Snell2015 rated.   So we should be good for the next 5 years hopefully. 

I'm trying to wrap up a big project at work installing sensors on every machine and wiring the building for automated true counting...   the setup week starts the 13th which means I have to be done by then.   If I finish by Friday the 9th, I'll actually get my saturdays back in time to go hit the drift even March 10th.    Hustle hustle hustle.

Bleeding the ebrake proves to be difficult.   The reservoir is from a sport bike, so you have to constantly too off or risk sucking air into the system.  Also I had to relocate it slightly because the line goes above the brake master and it's almost the same height as the reservoir.

So now that's fixed, and all three reservoirs are easier to fill.   So that's a win.


Ahh the exhaust has been tucked up tighter to the under body in hopes of clearing the trailer when loading.   Also the tip was put on finally


No updates besides that.
