I just had the rear diff internals and the driveshaft and hangers/carrier bearing replaced, OEM, oh and new rear monotubes
Are you anywhere near RDP Motorsports in Perry, Oh? I'll be there tomorrow for a dyno tune tweak on my way to the hotel. If you're close stop by and we can drive out together!

Gingerman and 5th Gens are worth the time and trouble! Travel safe.

Hey Pete, Any suggestions on coilover setting for XA's at Gingerman?

Remember, I have the upgraded springs. Thanks again.

The drag strip is like sniffing glue, it's cheap, it's a decent buzz, it doesn't last long and they are all the same.
Road racing is like China White Heroin, the buzz is stronger, the high lasts for hours, it's extremely addictive and they are all different.
I can't wait for my next
Track fix.

Fronts should be mid point 16
Rear harder. 10 down from full hard.
TP 32 Cold

Once hot keep the tires down to 40. If too loose, take two clicks out of the rear to soften it. Taking 2 psi out of the rear to 38 will add rear grip or front grip. Feel it out and do what you think best.

Be Fast. Be Safe.

Rain rain go away, please come back another day!!!

Anyone have a clue if we can drive with the windows up if it rains at the track? I never tracked in rain before and am thinking this is a no brainer, right?

Last time there I was starting out in the 31psi range cold (in my garage before leaving to go there), hot I would see 38/39psi after a track session. I might play with taking more pressure out in the front (29 or 30psi) to see if car responds better. Slight understeer noted in turn 3 and 10.

Last time I was there it rained all morning, windows were up. I did the same tire pressures.

My Baby girl is ready for tomorrow.

New rear tires, fresh differential fluid and a more aggressive alignment.

Let's have fun!
