100 DOD after thread

Postby Yoshi » Mon Dec 05, 2011 2:07 am

Howd it go guys?

An RX7 was loading onto a trailer, was using some wood planks to get the car on. The driver goosed it and shot the 4x1 wood plank out as I was walking by and shot me in the foot. I had to use the cruise control most of the way home.

Side note though. The new comp style went well. I even managed to get the scores up for tier 2 and 3 the morning after. Go check out your scores!

I'm just bummed bc it was really dumb what happened with my car. It kept losing all its power mid drift. Turns out when i changed my fuel pump, i didnt put it down in the tank far enough and once i got under half a tank of gas it wouldnt get fuel on hard turns.

Ugh.. i'm stoopid lol

This was the first event I'd ever driven in, did horribly, but learned a few things.

1. Don't run 205s on the front of a 240. I had understeer unless I did a weight transfer or a clutch kick.

2. My car has NO torque above 5k rpm, even with the throttle pinned to the floor it just sits at 5k. Clutch kicks momentarily bump it up but it just drops back to 5k.

3. I need to get my daily done so I'm not as scared to do things with the car I need to get to work with. Looking forward to it.

As far as driving goes though, I was expecting to be a little more scared I guess. At no point did I feel like I wasn't able to control the car, I just wish it had more power.

used over 20$ in gas sputtering up to summit at 1/8th throttle, rob page found a wire needing 12 volts and BAM shit hauled ass for about 10-12 runs, trans started knocking, or sounded like it at least, but my guess is my pinion bearing went out/binded eventually and took the driveshaft ujoint out and dropped the driveshaft out of the car on my first qualifying run, HAHA.

time to s13 subframe my shit? HMMM

chris towed me home sat night and i brought my 240 up to summit, hit the skid pad/hung out all day. it was WARMMM around 3-4 pm!


awesome ass events. we need comp like that EVERY event. needs to be branded to DN.
