obviously that didnt help.

But like a man (and since all eye places were closed for the night), I got it out myself with my fingernail.

I wish we had data and video from when he drove my car. Maybe he has some 95r vids or data we could compare.

I don't want to be all homo or anything, but the dude can wheel a car. Those 20-minutes changed me.

After this vid I found some time by keeping 3rd gear in #2, treating #4 as a baby double-apex on the inside, less lift and more throttle in #7-8. I need a corner balance and alignment pretty bad.

What, no CHRA damage? No manifold cracks? What is this alignment you speak of.

You also need an external mic for your camera. Audio quality gave me ED for life.

You just wait til he starts obsessing about the reliability of the car n/a. This is hustler we're talking about, no such thing as not obsessing over something lolz

What should I do about the exhaust?
  • Call Goodwin and complain that I had to "race" on a poorly fitting exhaust, rather than send it back when I knew it didn't fit?
  • Mod the cat-delete pipe and make it longer so the exhaust comes closer to fitting?
  • Mod the mid-pipe and make it longer so the exhaust comes closer to fitting?

I'm taking the car to MSR-C next weekend and that will be my last track day of the year, so I'd like to track it again ASAP. I NEED to apply what I learned at Hallett to MSR-C and see what happens.

Email them, they will probably take 10 YEARS to respond, during which time you can track the car for the last time then figure out what you want to do with the leak.

I'm sure their cust service on the phone is top notch, and when I ordered parts I got them swiftly, but their email response BLOWS :

Call and talk to Brian about it. He seems like someone who would be able to find a way to work it out. If I would modify anything it would be the cat delete pipe. I'm sure Abe could handle that no problem.

Glad to see it worked out well for you this weekend.

Abe is busy, an hour away, and about $14 in tolls.

Modding the delete-pipe makes sense, but that part acutally fits. I keep telling myself to "mangle ill-fitting parts", not parts that fit properly.

Glad to hear you had a good weekend.

As for the exhaust, Step One should be to pick up the phone and call Goodwin.

Is it worth the discussion since I drove the car, knowing the exhaust didn't fit? If I did not drive on it and sent it back, I'm sure they'd replace it. However this exhaust has already been through some track time, bent to fit, and cursed at.
