Plus some interesting shots of Portugal! Your Eunos must be quite a unique car there.

Love the "messy garage" comment. With tiled floors and painted walls. LOL.

Some Azev Type A. 15X7.5". I dont like them to be honest, but after installing the 11" BBK i needed some wheels that would clear them.

I am saving my for the Rpf1 15x8 Those are my all time favorite heels.

If shipping was more realistic I'd buy them off you to help finance your RPF1 purchase.

Hello guys,

Well this 21st September was the first trackday for me after the turbo install. To be honest, it went pretty well. I was expecting some issues since I knew that those weaknesses were there.

The first was the water temperature. After 2 or 3 laps the water started to get Hot, I knew this would happen, I need to address the ducting but I had no time. No big deal, since I was doing a shakedown on the car setting lap times was no my priority, just having some fun. Also, the weather was crap; sections of the track were wet with little traction.

The other issue that is getting on my nerves is a vibration/noise that comes after left turn corners and when applying throttle, when I load the car suspension it vibrates and judders, if I lift off the throttle and then accelerate again, it stops. I have taken both wheels off, checked everything is tight and cannot understand. I am leaning on a bad driveshaft?!


Anyway, awesome day.

Your instructor sounds hot!

Check that your exhaust isn't rubbing/hitting against anything. I've had it lightly contact the axle shaft (stub axles) and the frame before. Makes a racket under cornering and pretty unnerving until you figure out what it is. Poly hangers and paying attention to getting the exhaust system centered is the cure.

The way passes and such are being handled in that video are terrifying. What sort of driver experience is required for that group you were running in?

Forget lawyers, I'm more concerned about totally erratic driving in somewhat close proximity to other cars.

Turbofan - This group was a closed one to a bunch of folks from a car forum . Most of the guys on track I know so we take some liberties and all experienced . But our track days are a lot less civilised than yours, no doubt .

I know what you meant. All men in Portugal have chest hair and pass where they want! And the women are beautiful!

So, Ed, .
