Haven't updated for ages, so drove the car last month at Michael's private track day at Tailem. Never driven the track before so was hell excited to get back out driving and somewhere new.

 

I pulled off my turbo and manifold and fixed the actuator and leaks in between the manifold, and got a mobile thread doctor to retap my oil line in my block while I had the turbo off. It only took my 40minutes to completey unbolt turbo and manifold off the engine/exhaust so pretty chuffed with my times getting quicker.

 

Me being retarded didn't get new steer tyres (over 15months old yuck) so I had a bastard of a time trying to get the car not to understeer everywhere, regadless of that I had fun and at the end of the day was getting alot quicker on my entries!

 

Boyfriend (sleeper_13) and I had spent a while before hand re-doing his KE to have the same battle/apocalypse theme as mine and he put a new stronger built SR in so was great to finally drive with him for the first time!

 

Low light of the day was my vacuum line to my boost controller came off at my last run (was pretty hot only speculating that it it's expanded and slipped off because it was when I'd been going around continuously at the end of the day where there was no line up) and ran unlimited boost through it which has shot off or split one of my oil lines, car dropped it's oil exciting the track so I guess will just pull it out and replace what's fcked :(

 

 

Anyway here are some pics the talented boyfriend took and a video he put together from our day!

 

Thanks to Michael for holding it, much appreciated for the time and effort you and everyone else spent on holding the day :)
