    air compressor install



    I like these shelves, they're $22 on Amazon... of course, they also didn't include the hardware for 2, but are fixing that issue so all is well

    what I like is they're simple to assemble, just 9 nuts....

    time to start fixes, steering

    fixed

    with this


    in other news, starting to put the lift in

    the guy I bought the place from - this was his initial location before his business needed the space.


    I think that makes the most sense. as I unpack I'm starting to be amazed at how much space I really have for activities..

    so the list


    I need to find 200 tw tires

    and the clutch is "check".... it should be okay, but then again, it was getting funky on the last brake portion..in all seriousness, I should put a 3.73 rear gear in

    everyone likes pictures... so we start there....


    Chad won and was a neighbor in the parking lot.



    what a trip the filming is. I may end up nowhere on it (kind of doubtful because I had cameras on my car pretty much the entire time) - but I seriously think one of the biggest boosts I got was from that whole thing.... I know all you experienced racers don't think anything of it - but to me that was as much a trip as sliding out of the box on the stop challenge (oops)....


    So in other news... the car.

    It still runs.

    but, I need better tires - I finally saw how they could help, but I'll also say that up and until now, they would have been pearls before pigs...



    it ran. But I knocked off after completing all the first rounds because I was getting concerned that it's dropping a cylinder. I cannot afford a new motor this year, much as I'd love to have stayed 3 more hours and ran....



    The clutch.... ugh. Even at the low power, doing the last challenge - the accel/braking session, the clutch started to slip. I don't know what to do about this, that clutch is supposed to be able to handle the power.... but the bbc torque? yeah. Maybe I should bandaid it with 3.73 gears? then the tires would go up in smoke before the clutch did....

    sadly, it only uses about 1/3rd of its length in that configuration.

    I agree, aero looks stupid, however, I have 5 years in building that car and think wrapping it into a wall looks stupider. Your opinion likely differs, however only mine counts. I need to finish editing my last track day, the wing is to push the rear down under hard braking. It helped, but I probably should have done more.

    you will be glad to know the baffles fell out. There was a BMW at track night that was way loud. ... if he gets away with it, so do I.
