Default Matts 272whp AutoX and 0-125mph



I was riding in all videos. He butchered that run and it was by far his worst time of the day.
I'd say it was the most fun run of the day due to the drifting and was pretty convinced we were gonna spin.

Dyno plot too!

I have a small question about the AFRs used in the tune.
Could somebody PM me why they went for 12.8? I'd rather not discuss that in this thread.

That course looks awesome, better suited to high power cars unless the video is deceiving. The autocross i went to on the 30th was on a smaller course, less wide open, more complex driving. That definitely must have had a good amount of 3rd gear in it. Looks like fun.

Gulf greyhound park is awesome. A weird surface, but there is lots of room.

damn straight. I've never seen an autox course like that around here. Most are tight and technical.

Ok we'll call that oversteer...

He's gonna be putting a muffler on soon.

Yeah I like that lot for autocross. The cool thing is there are 3 different places all within an hour of me.

The Shell station had their gas contaminated with diesel. Sadly, Matt put some of that gas in his car. It barely made it home and hasn't been running since last Sunday. He just got it running today after flushing the entire fuel system, TWICE.

I don't personally know anyone else affected by the bad gas, but there were a few Miatas and a Lotus that I know of.

I am glad it was a bad tank of Gas! I had a few moments of heartburn over his car not running. BTW - Corky laughed at me when I suggested it was a bad tank of gas. I guess not.
