CSCS St Thomas Sept 13th

Postby Asylum » Sun Sep 13, 2009 9:48 pm

Canadian Sport Compact Series Fall Classic.

Stellar field including the guys from up North including Marcel (Mars on 60*) with his blown 3400 Cavy.

CHA-CHING!

$200 into the race fund for the Old man!

Nothing spectacular performance wise. 14-teens all day, and it has HUGE idle issues!

Going to be working on that this week.

But for now, great day, good competition and a nice win!

So did you ever figure out why the car was so unhappy?

Oh ya I guess I should update this little problem.

The crank trigger was literally hanging loose. Rodney heard something rattling around, LOL.

How the car ran at all I HAVE NO IDEA! Which is why I never thought to check it.

But it's fixed now. Locktite FTMFW!

Friday night at St Thomas.

There are still six dates left (weather permitting).

We;ll see, but I won't be disappointed if the elusive 13 stays in the box. LOL!

You've run open headers at Lebanon recently, so unless that track has proven to be slower than St. Thomas then there probably wont be anything too surprising.

I'm guessing 14.0's if it's cool.

HOWEVER, Rodney is weakening me. And keeps talking about a TCC lockup procedure that is suppose to worth 2 tenths.

I want to pull the engine and address some small firewall issues that aren't big, but bug me, and Bill wants to go through the trans, so a cam/valve springs/rockers is very likely, more converter, and maybe try the 3.94 again.

I'm going to have to do some research on the valvetrain parts and the RPM range I want to concentrate on, yet keep the car "somewhat" driveable.

Besides, Alex is already well into the 13's N/A, Jon dabbled there, and Barry is getting too close, LOL!

Mine will never see 13's again n/a with those boat anchors I call rotors up front. TCC lockup I'm not sure how that would help you by 2 tenths... but I know what he's talking about. It can essentially shorten the range between gears, if you get it all setup right, he would make it lock up before the next shift so then once it does shift the RPMs are higher in the next gear, and so on... I'm not sure if you can do that on the 1-2 shift though, or if it would be even usable there.

And you'll be lucky if you even see a set of custom rockers for these motors before next season...

I need to get my ass to the track before the year runs out... just to see what it's got and what could use some work. I'm excited to see how well the LSD hooks the tires.
