So another trackday came and went on sunday. This was a different track with a different setup during the day. They had sprint sessions, cruise session where you could race people on the straight :P and a skid pan. Was setup to be an awesome day.
Started bright and early that morning. Met up with some mates at the servo local to the track for some breaky before we headed out to get setup.
Got setup, did driver briefing and went out for the first sprint session.
What a technical track, a lot difficult to master then the previous one.. Little to no front end grip coming into the hair pins and along the high speed sweepers it was an **** clenching experience being top of 5th with not much track to work with.
Screen shot from harry's lap timer gives u an idea of the layout.

Next up was the cruise session. This was so much fun.. having re reign of the track and racing whoever we please. Was good to test out the new power to
So much fuel :P
heres a quick race again an s15 with an 3076r.. Making a fair bit of power i cant remember how much. Would have been good if we took off the same :P

Lining up ready to go out for another sprint session. Started to find my grove here and was really enjoying it
Next up i decided to try out the skid pan haha.. So much fun but difficult at the same time.
This is where it gets pear shaped. After the skid pan session i went out for another cruise session and then the car started playing up. I went back to the pits and fucked around with it for a while till i concluded that it was running on 3 cylinders.. Somewhere in the wiring harness there was an error and it wasnt sending a signal to No. 1 Injector. As i wiggled it around it seem to fix it just breifly but then went back to 3 cyinders.. Thats where my day ended.
For the rest of the day i was passenger in a couple of mates cars which was just as fun. Came time to go home and i got it running back on all 4 so quickly made my way out the gates and on the way home. About 1 km into the drive car started struggling a lot and air fuels were going crazy so i pulled over.. Was barely running by this point. So i decided to just call a tow truck before i do any more damage.
Took the bumper off while i waited for the tow truck.
admired the crazy as skies going on behind us
two hours after calling the tow company the truck arrived and picked me up and took me home.
And thats where i left it... Time to take out the harness and start trouble shooting the cause. I really enjoyed the skid pan so i wanna start learning how to get sideways and hold it properly
