Default laguna seca 4/10-4/11

Here are some pics I took yesterday between sessions. I won't be making it back today because the weather is crappy and need to get some other stuff done. There were a lot of people with cameras so hopefully more pics show up after today.

lol @ 27. Had to have been a joke. Good to see there are more of the "turbos and aero" crowd this year. It was kinda funny last year, the powers that be didn't really understand the whole going fast thing.

^Going fast upsets the balance of the car.

Awesome pics, for some reason I really like the looks of the 9 car.

They are all at the following link. I have two of your car out on the track... nothing that great, though. BTW, were your driving gloves size 10/medium?

EDIT: Found a third one I forgot to upload.

Is that a partially obscured KraftWerks logo on the rear quarter? It looks like 'Miata Challenge' on the windsheild...

That one is mine. 350 whp Rotrex S/C, more fun than can be measured by modern science. Search on m.net for DIY Rotrex for the ugly details (Droid phone link post fail).

Btw, are you turning that Rotrex to its redline now or do you have more blower rpm headroom for extra boost some day?

Still at redline. No reason not to - the faster you turn it, the earlier useful boost shows up. If you want to cap the power a flow restriction of some sort seems to work.

All of my power gains have been flow related - better intake manifold (25whp), 99 head with some porting and +1mm valves (another 25), big, cheap ebay intercooler (another 1.5 psi of essentially free boost and another 25 hp).

The next step is 949's magic header and exhaust. I'm shooting for more power band now...
