EOY Shakedown

It’s been very quiet around here for a long time. Lots of non-car things happening and two cars have been undergoing some serious upgrades. BUT that doesn’t mean nothing has been happening, and here is a little video I put together quick from footage taken last weekend when both cars were on a shakedown at JDM X Park. Special thanks to James Mardle for his advice and assistance with car setups, as well as lending us the use of his track.

FUN FACT: It’s the first time Ash and I have been on track together since I bought Mona.

hey guys its been a while since iv posted anything on the blog

Mainly due to the fact iv moved interstate and started a new job

the 86 made the 15 hour drive over no worries and has sat quietly in the garage waiting for some warmer weather (who would have thought the snowy mountains would be so cold!)

lately as spring has rolled around iv been playing with the car a little bit. The best news is ever since iv had the car when cruising at a constant speed it had a slight miss, somtimes it was fine other times it was a pain in the arse! Andy from adaptronic talked me through a fairly long process slowly looking through lots of possibilities and we finally sorted it. Timing now takes its signal from the exhaust camshaft because it does not move around as much as the inlet with the VVT-i. Car is a dream to drive!

Also been playing with the idea of a lip on my lip (yo dawg)




basically iv been looking at to many RWB porche pictures ….

the old saying applies
