Wohoo... Racecar weekend for sure. Looks like you had a blast as well.

You would have too many Journals to keep up... but I'm still going to bump yours, never to late to keep it going.

Here's a short video or our track

looked like you were closing. Nice lines, fast and
smooth!! Just wish we could both do that at the
same track - it would be sooo much fun!!

Yes, it was like a Subaru or something.

My car was on about half power in the afternoon. IAT's were sky high and after it was all over we discovered the Coolant Pump for the S/C was dead.

So it's time for a reservoir and new pump. Took it easy on the way home and put 23 to bed for a while.

LMAO... that's because my car wouldn't go over 100. I scared the crap out of myself earlier in the day when the car was running good.

Totally hooked like everyone always says. This is where it's at and we are doing it again in July at a different track.

Need to get my heatX pump changed out and a D3 Reservoir put on. The pump stopped and my IAT's when sky high. Tons of timing pulled so had no power. Still had a blast though.

I have got to try this whole road course thing. Still trying to figure out how to go in straight line, but maybe it is time to move on to the harder stuff

Sounds like you had a blast out there.

We have 3 spots open for another track rental July 12th... This blows drag racing away. But still doesn't replace it

Bo White TB and D3PE Reservoir

Some new mods installed this weekend...

Bo White Throttle Body.... Thanks Bo for the custom port job.

Throttle response is way improved and makes drive ability with a big cam easy.

Also, added a D3 Performance Engineering coolant reservoir.

Should have done this a long time ago. It would have avoided the fluid level problems I had at the road track last month.

Fit and finish of this unit is absolutely perfect. Very well engineered.
