We took the car back to the cones but this time it was a night event! My instructor buddy Brent Bravata co-drove it for the event and took first place in CAM-T!! He couldn’t stop raving about the car, which felt good. This thing is a rocket! He initially had issues with brake hop in the rear, which was mostly him not being used to the non-abs brake system, but he figured it out. This time out I was more aggressive but still need to work on exit speed between elements and that will come with time. However, his unbiased opinion helped expose some weaknesses in the brakes and we found the steering shaft contacts the header. We messed with tire pressure and found that 31/29 (hot) seemed to work the best.
My buddy William, who is also the man who built my engine, made the journey from Mississippi to see the car in action. He made some idle AFR adjustments for me while I was doing a course walk and the car seemed much happier after. Thanks, Sarge!
Brent’s first run of the night and I left the commentary. [NSFW]
My first run of the evening. Second time riding with an instructor but the first with someone else who has driven the car. This proved to be invaluable.
Brent tossing my buddy Lance around on this run was pretty funny! [NSFW]

This would’ve been my fastest pass but I punted a cone.
I’m not entirely sure which pass this was but here it is.
