This is my West coast daily driver and not the PWSC car I run at the East coast and Midwest events. So it is box stock except for the Bilstein coilover kit, Cobalt pads and worn out Kumho XS's.How did the car run, any mods over the winter, just curious as I have spent the last four weekends under mine, except for 5 hours tied to the dyno, can't wait to make a turn, and my two trips to That track years ago down the cork screw were amazing.
The car ran fine, except when I shut it off on grid waiting for a wrecked car to be cleared from the track and neglected to turn off the traction control before starting out. I couldn't figure out why the car was bogging until the flashing TC light caught my eye.
I swapped out a bad inner tie rod the day before, so the toe was a bit wonky. BTW, swapping the inner tie rod was cake with the help of this tool.
I found it on ebay for $18 shipped.
As usual, the SVT is about the slowest car in the run group. This was a Lotus club event so most of the cars are ~800lbs lighter with the same or better power. I try to play with the Spec Miatas, but if the driver is any good at all I lose contact after a lap or so. Then there are the guys driving a new Stingray, GT-R and ACR Viper who just rocket past folks at will.
