Winter is getting closer, and the seasons come to an end. Time to start driving in the basement.



If anyone plays the game and wants to join a weekly league, I set one up with a buddy. Search for the league name "Drift Faction" (two words).

Never posted the car with the trailer loaded up. 120 mile round trip, mostly highway driving 65-70 mph, no issues.

Old photo re-edit.

Before




After


Got some time on my buddies lift today. Buttoned up a few loose ends from last year, primarily the under tray. Intercooler and piping made this fun.




Oil temps were climbing a bit after a few laps drifting at the last event without the under tray and the plastic shroud in the bumper. So hopefully this helps direct some more air flow through the radiator to keep temps in check. I might cut the hood to let some hot air out as well.

Installed a Mishimoto catch can, not the prettiest setup, but it should function. I'm going to try finding a 90 degree fitting for the outlet on the catch to clean things up. Previously I was just running a breather filter off the valve cover.

New gauges came in, oil temp and boost. Replacements for some junk Autometer gauges I've been using.

I have some of those gauges. The alarm feature is great to have.

Sounds good, I'll try making it a point to post which event I'll be attending next. Not sure just yet.

More photos from the Canaan event.

New to me trailer. Needs a little bit of tlc, but it's a good place to start and didn't cost much.
