Found the misfire issue.   Tank was so badly full of rust and mud.  Pre-screen clogged.


I've been cleaning the tank for days, not sure if I can save it.   But I did source one that was cleaned and treated with POR-15.  So I should have the car ready to go this weekend.   

Did some camber adjustments to try and get more front end grip in the car

Fixed the hydro-ebrake and confirmed she skids.



I've got a few months to get the car ready for desert meihan

Fuel cell because racecar!

I saw your front-end setup, was interested to hear how it performs...

Adjusting your dwell setting should cool the coil packs.

What coils are you using?

I'm using 1ZZ/Prius coils.   

I was pleasantly surprised how good the suspension feels straight away.   I need to dial in some things but the car feels so good on track


I just received my two new gas tanks I ordered.  Should be driving as soon as I get a day free
