Hopefully someone will have an answer why the turbo going bad would cause that
(maybe wishful thinking, but after the weekend I've had I need a little good luck).
If the car had been detonating at say 6000 or 6500 RPM, and I started to short shift at 5800-6000 (therefore avoiding the detonation point)... do you think the plugs would have shown signs of detonation still? Or would the short shifting have allowed the plugs to "clean themselves up"?
The real bummer about the weekend, is that it rained right before the Sunday race... It would have been my chance to shine against the 600hp stock cars that couldn't get any traction and kept fogging up their windshields. Instead an Integra took the overall race win... and I got to stand in the grandstands to watch. I don't think I have been that despondent,dejected, pissed off, whatever you want to call it in a long time. One of the worst feelings ever is standing in pre-grid when they give the 1 to go whistle, and realize you aren't sitting in your car like you are supposed to be.
