Re: Kelowna - Year To Date Results

New Firefly engine is back together and on my "break-in test" stand, but I ran out of time. Theoretically almost twice the horsepower of the 5.0L (which wasn't much, honestly). Maybe maybe maybe it will be back together and sorted in time for an event. I'm still not dead last in the standi...

Re: #4 - May 24 2018

Still not dead last, and still dominating E/Mod. I broke down and ordered heim joints for the rear. The poly bushings are reducing compliance making it harder to put power down, especially on this lot. Clearly I need to keep coming out more for further testing....

Re: Tire temps - here’s the sh**

That's very cool.

But also a lot of scratch for your average joe in an amateur motorsport that doesn't pay the bills.
