    Took the car for a quick lap the other morning just to make sure everything was good for some track time coming up soon.


    If anyone is in the Los Angeles area I’ll be up at Fontana with the car on the 31st. Come through and say hi.

    Thanks man I appreciate it! It’s always nice putting faces to folks we communicate with online haha. It was a pleasure meeting you too.

    Car ran good and I’m happy with the outing. Last pass we turned it up and learned a few things. It’s out of fuel pump already and it helps to have the main rev limiter above where you know the motor is gonna spin too. Next time out should be fun.

    Little update.....

    Ran the car again and was only able to make two passes. Developed a pretty good oil leak out the pan gasket under boost due to not having enough crank case ventilation. Pulled the motor out to reseal the pan and check the bearings. Everything looked excellent and ill be putting it back in in a week or so. Some photos and vids below.
