Sad day in thundertown
This past weekend was sure an exciting and eventful weekend. Not only did I have car trouble, I also went of the track! Yay! First time with all 4 wheels off!
Before this track day I decided to do two things to my car. Install STi Spec C front control arms and to get a decent alignment. Wow, did that change how my car behaved on the track. It went from an understeering monster, to a rear wheel drive sports car. I must say that I wasn’t expecting that big of a change in my car.
Well, lesson learned I suppose! I really do like how my car handles now. Unfortunately, it seems as if going off track also dented my oil pan. I didn’t think it was that bad of slide, but my engine did! After going off my car seemed to drive fine, but when I came back into the pits after my second run I heard a little bit of ticking. That little bit of ticking ended up becoming a lot of knocking.
My car idles fine, but does not want to rev anymore. So I guess I’ll be swapping engines again soon. Luckily I just got an extra EJ205! Woot! So I guess it’s not too bad.
Hopefully my buddies will post some videos up soon and I can add them to this post!
PS — WATCH OUT FOR THAT SUN!
