So, Ive been away with work for ages and didn't get the chance to update the thread at all. Well, now I have something to update it with.
Plane landed on Friday morning, bags dropped off in the house, and straight into the garage to get the car ready for a drift day that I committed to without my car being remotely ready. But then again, its probably for the best as I would have put the skids off for ages as in my eyes, the car is never ready
Took it for a quick spin to pick up some tyres. f***, I cannot describe how much I missed this.
Got back home and started work.
Swapped the anti roll bars round
Got the car aligned and Mint was kind enough for me to make use of his bride, cheers man
Hmmmm, completely forgot about the rear lip
Off to pick it up....with a few stops in between
Found these random wheels at mints house. He said I can have a set :p. Just need some tyres stretched on and arches pulled to f***. :smash:
Car felt great apart from one thing.....the clutch. At one point following a clutch kick, the revs just stayed where they were.....so that made me unhappy one night before a drift day.... Oh well! Will just have to deal with it.
Got back home pretty late, packed all the s@3! and got a few hours of sleep. Its amazing how easy it is to get up for drifting in the morning.
Drive was great, and really comfortable even with gammy alignment that was done with some fishing line.
The tyres did their thing once again. Good thing I didnt get any new arches. Why bother?
Need some springs asap.
Car felt brilliant all day. Apart from the clutch issue, which was pretty annoying at times as the car was straightening up as it started to slip. I must say that at first I was unsure about the slipping clutch. I havent driven the car in so long, and Ive actually forgotten what the clutch used to feel like. But My doubts have been confirmed when i dropped the clutch in 6th gear, and the revs just stayed up. So the clutch its pretty close to its death.
But anyway, skids!! Engine felt awesome! Got my power back at last!! Only running 0.45bar this weekend just to play it safe.
Suspension felt awesome!!! Just need some stiffer springs for the front as the 12kg ones on the front are just plain s@3!.
Definitely an improvement from last season. Didnt go too retarded either. Took it pretty easy all day.
Got a few videoshttp://youtu.be/FtV2unXN9Pkhttp://youtu.be/6PShXl8Y6JIhttp://youtu.be/mKJH-s7R26Yhttp://youtu.be/QBZW058_tPghttp://youtu.be/Iuvu_Bia73M
Decided to call it a day early as I got the feel for the car again, found out what needed to be changed and pretty much incident free.
So a few small tweaks left to do before I take it back out again. Bring on Finalboss!
