I have lots to do. Still waiting on new springs so haven't changed my shocks yet. Still have to install a thermostat and now I have to change my fan relay. Would be missing autocross 1 but hope to get to take a spin at the first D&W event as well.

allyuh fellas making me feel reassured I gonna make it in time lol..
I have to corner balance as well and make a dyno pull so Trevor could stick me in a class before Autocross #1.
also I have two locking clips to change on the axle stubs before I do much driving and fcukshitup. I have a 3mm play and it sounds like 3ft when the diff locks in slow turns

got the busted exhaust gasket out today. I have to get a T2 flange gasket, some new nuts and lock washers and I should be up and running again.
just plugs, fuel filter, diff oil change and rear tyres and I good.

still have time to make a dyno pass before Dex1.
final weight was 26** lbs and a cross weight of 50.5%. Amir has a screen shot of the final weight I believe.
I have a final screen shot of his final weight and cross weight as well.

Those weights were with driver?

I changed my rear shocks. Did not think that it would make such a difference to the car, I guess 22 year old shocks would be pretty horrible :|

sweet Amir, thanks for the screenshot, I have the progression of yours when we were balancing, from initial to final.
I guess my total weight is 2460lbs,
I assume my power is unchanged (or less even), but I'll confirm after this weekend when I make a dyno pass.

at my old power (200whp) I should have a w/p of: (10.695 )~ 10.7
base class should be EP and my penalty list looks like:
-coilovers (3)
-anti-roll bars (2)
-brake upgrade (2)
-aftermarket lsd (2)
-boost controller (3)

final class Open??

seriously, I may install a 38mm external wastegate and run a 12 or 14psi spring to eliminate the need for a controller.
I still maintain that 3pts for a boost controller is unnecessary. I could use it elsewhere or have room for three points in case I need to change something

Razkal just take off the controller for Autocross and put it back for Drag and wine. That way you will not get the 3 points.

I only installed a larger rear sway bar and some stiffer springs. Have to change oil and my clutch master tomorrow morning. Coming with the tires from last year which only have 50% left.

so the car worked well for the drag and wind meet, tyres were crap though.
the lsd is fun to drive, didn't really push too hard in the squiggly bits because front grip was minimal.

still gonna get aligned and get a set of new tyres. also I have some heat shields to put on and a dyno pull.
the only new tyre I can get in the appropriate size is the Falken FK452 so guess I stuck with that for maybe a year

@ 12psi, I went down from 14 because I was getting a spike. still spiking but not as high and not for long.

might be time for a new actuator or entire wastegate. excuse for an external and a screamer dump pipe! lol

that power is toots, the torque is nice though, early delivery.
on the highway that power feels like crap, all out of breath by 5500-6000, doh even make sense shifting that high lol

very nice for dex though

I had some serious ignition problems for drag and wind on the 12th.
The car was experiencing lots of breaking up and sputtering under load, I did some sleepless troubleshooting and narrowed it down to MAF, CAS, distributor module or trigger disc for the CAS in the dizzy.
changed all one by one last night and retimed the engine. turned out to be the module and trigger disc. still, I changed out the rest.
it's almost back to normal now, just gonna drop the fuel rail, clean the injectors and install a 0 gauge charge wire to the battery in the back.

hopefully I could be there on Sunday with the car.

this forum gone very quiet, what you guys up to? nitrous and A048s?

Steering ends inner and outer, wheel bearings, sway bar links and sway bar bushings need to change.

I'm hoping the ends arrive early next week, once that's here I'll get the rest of stuff and hopefully will be able to get the used lowering springs I've been waiting on and install those and the new shocks for the front.
