That would have scared the **** out of me too. Thankfully it wasn't anything serious.

What's up with all the weight shaving? You gonna start a drag racing career?

Tell me more about those Oswald parts.

It was not a good feeling. Thankfully a buddy was up and we were installing downpipe and cat back otherwise I would have been worried sick... or maybe found the issue then.

Weight savings is just something I realized I needed to do after my car still weighed 3260 (with full interior and full tank of fuel) plus me. I want to get to 3350 or less with me in it. I have an amazing lead on some Seibon carbon fiber doors and that would save 80 pounds at the cost of some safety so I don't know if I will be doing that mod until I have a cage.

As for the Oswald - easiest 21 pounds to shave and you get rid of the rusty ass rear bumper beam. That install is literally a 2 hour job start to finish, no jacking required or any fancy tools. All aluminium and the stock Styrofoam still fits. Not to mention the parts fit together nicely and instructions were very well written and thorough

Let me know what you think about it... I'd rather use that than the two vertical supports behind that the seats, but I imagine those help with the rigidity .

Got my coil pack today. That fixed the issue I had last Friday.

Spent some time merging my two maps. I've got boost, WGDC and knock sensor merged all together.

From the suggestion of a guy on the Link forums I had the edge detection wrong ( rising vs falling) on my ethanol sensor so my fuel readings were all out of whack, but its good now. Fuel temps rose from 24-35 on a trip into town, nothing too crazy. I want to do some cold start trims on E85 cause it is cranking a little longer than I want it to.

Since you only have one set of start up trims for two fuels I know a little cheat that may help your E85 cold starts... and where are the full throttle E85 videos?

Still no videos! Haven't driven the car, but I did find a design flaw that others have also noticed.

The weapon-r coolant overflow / windshield washer fluid tank has a nipple at the top with no tube going down to the bottom. This makes it extremely difficult for the coolant to drain back into the radiator once it is cool down. I will be either Welding a new nipple on the bottom or putting a tube inside the nipple if it is a tight enough fit.

I just stopped and picked up some goodies from coolblue05, thanks again man! Here's one teaser photo while driving down the road

JDM STI rear caliper race pad. Can't get them in the states they are a Japanese only item and Jacob said they were pretty damn expensive. I bought a set of rotors from him so I figured what the hell might as well.

I'll bet your boost is dead flat out until redline! I know my boost didn't hardly waver 1/2 lb. all the way until 7600 after Junior's tune!

There was a dip at 6200 but only 1-2 psi. I had to mess with some stuff (WGDC mostly) and it went fine. I haven't driven the car hard while logging in a while ... here is a picture of my latest 4th gear pull I have.

I shared this with some already but I just am in love with it for some reason....

This is just a little inlay I put behind the radio bezel after taking the radio out tonight. 7" touch screen no more .

Real carbon fiber with some sort of sticker / vinyl on top . Thanks cool blue!

Aside from the fun mod posted last night I've been working on making sure my car passes tech inspections tomorrow at the drag strip. (Checked on driveshaft loop and kill switch, good on both)

I still think I'm ****ed. Apparently some communist mother ****er thinks that a sealed / vented box is still required with a gel battery? I was all happy I wasn't breaking any rules before I waljed in now my bloods boiling at 12am pissed that it will be ****ing august until I get to the track.

Well no tech inspection but j have full interior and extra battery in the front with me. Cannot wait till I can buy a trailer to tow my car here.

Anyways I had one good pass so far, keep missing third. Only running the 1/8th till the end of night so I don't get booted.

Your track times will come with time.

I would look into a new shifter if it keeps giving you fits. BTW according the the D/A calc you can shave .15 off your slips if we would have had good weather Saturday

Yepp will do Kelly. I posted from my phone.

I didn't think about that. Wonder if the OEM shifter would be better than the short throw?

Any speculations on what the 1.85 / 7.4 1/8th would do in 1/4?
