The ECS one is the kit I suggested. I'd be curious to see if it does anything for on-track smoking, I've never used it on the stock PCV personally but the revised OEM PCV is very hit or miss in terms of fixing oiling problems in high-G scenarios.

I did BL and $20 Amazon cc.

Unless you fill the can, no more smoke.

Sweet, thanks both of you.

That helped at least paint the picture on how it connects up with the OEM PCV, which I didn't quite understand.

Interesting enough @scrllock , these are available and verified through a few vendors on Amazon. I came across them running a google search for the part numbers.
I ordered bilstein stuff from an amazon vendor once and never got it, so just be careful. It also looks like Summit might have some (they list in stock in NV warehouse), but I'd call to check because a lot of the bilstein stuff is drop shipped

Well, everything has been ordered with the exception of the CC and the coilovers. Was able to grab a few early black Friday sales and save a few $$.

I'm headed to an event in Las Vegas over December 11/12, would be great to get everything on by then, but that seriously won't happen.

Made the drive down to Las Vegas for the Sinners vs Saints event (Las Vegas vs Utah).

Saturdays event was terrible, low 50°’s, clouds, wind, pretty chilly. Not to mention I had issues with my camera and SoloStorm setup.

Sunday was quite different. Sunny, high 50°’s, calm winds, great conditions.

I have a slew of parts stacked up at home, pretty much everything identified from earlier, but nothing new is on my car.

Out of 84 drivers, with several national competitors and prepped cars, I was able to pull 9th in PAX and 10th in Raw.

Here’s my two fastest runs of the day, which were 0.037 apart.



The Kuhmo’s felt great today as well.

Does anyone know why the GoPro floats like the mount is loose? Is that some setting that can be turned off?

I'm really torn between the V730 and RT660. I've seen mixed reviews on the V730, universal praise for the RT660.

Have you met our lord and savior, the A052?

I track, autocross, and have a wife. A052 are not compatible with those requirements. 🤣

But I might pick up a set as dedicated rain tires. You'd have to have Jesus carry you around the track on his back to get better wet performance.

A052 in the rain are incredible, I had top pax in the rain on them. They're just magic

Finally ordered the Bilstein DCC coil overs. After staring at multiple websites hoping they’d have some type of sale below the MAP listing, I was about to just order them through ShopDAP with $45 off in rewards points. But found a website offering 5% off anything for signing up for their spam emails and texts, so was able to get $142 off.

Anyways waiting in a few more things, and some rear main seal parts, then I’ll get them out on all at once.

Okay, it's alignment time. I'm headed to the local shop with a knowledgeable alignment specialist that sets up plenty of autox cars, races himself including at the nationals, but in a corvette.

Anyways it'll be a few months before the next event, looking for that compromise of more of a daily driven setup.

We'll see what my front camber and caster settles on after the new bushings. Rear camber, I'm looking at keeping it around the -2.0° mark. Should I just aim for 0 toe on the front/rear to begin with?

0 toe is a good place to start, good foundation. If the front end feels lazy, add some toe out in the front. If the rear end doesn't rotate enough, add neg toe.
