We'll see, unfortunately today's track day has been canceled due to bad weather. Huge bummer.

But it actually can't be worse than my previous setup. I'll give myself a couple of sessions to properly test it, than i'll adjust in consequences!

Friday update

Didn't do much this week, was still hellah-busy at work plus I had a bit of back pain I had to take care of, nothing serious.

Lapping nights are starting next thursday at my local track , hopefully weather will be on our side this time cause I can't f-ing wait to drive this thing for real.

Meanwhile, perks of working in a dealership, got all the detailing stuff for free to use, so why not spend a bit of time! a 2hours well invested tonight, I feel damn better now!

Went to my job to perform the usual oil change and also a last minute inspection before going to today’s track night.



Good thing I did that, noticed that my rear left SS brake line was grinding on the upper arm.



Bent the bracket a little to give it more space, cleaned the whole thing and installed a little adhesive rubber to cover it up.




As I didn’t want to bring my job torque wrench to the track, had to buy another one for the wheels.




It is finally happening boys!

If I can resume that night in one picture..



Here’s a video of my 2nd session, fighting against a Corvette.
