The Subaru that was chasing me sent this video..... Glad we have windshields!!

What was that doing on the track?
Interesting camera work. What was he using, do you know?

Well last race I could only pass the GT4 cars on braking as I did not have to power to pass them on corner exit or the straights as usual. looks Like we found the culprit. Had a P0300 code and it felt very much like not having done a crank relearn (which I did).

Now to find out why. The gearbox is leaking a little oil so I thought that might be it, but in this case the sensor looks oxidized....

Having fun learning how to make 3D images for printing. Making some Gurney flaps for the tracspec hood grill and hoping it drops the engine temps some more.

Was making a new shifter but it looked a lot like a dildo. So will have to try that again.

Is that a bad thing? Perhaps you're onto a new business there?
Dual purpose shifter/sex toy?
I'm sure there's a market somewhere for such a thing!:D

Hope you found the issue. That thing look yucky. If that does not work take a look to see if there is an extension on the driver side O2 sensor? If so, maybe the connections developed some play. I had the "typical" O2 sensor and misfire codes when I purchased my car and was tuned to E85. After getting dyno'd and tuned to 92 I still got the codes. Out of frustration I ran the routing and found an extension on the driver side O2 sensor. Did this and no more codes - 2 track days and a few hundred miles. Just another avenue to look just in incase.

These things used to be all the rage down he in the 80's. Just a big chevy V8 with a car wrapped around it. But the did have the lap records for ages. even the GT3 cup cars have a hard time being faster. This one just was restored... Hoping it races again.
