That was the full case to help with speeds over 100mph. Still came in like that. So thank you Sconnie, that is the perfect idea. Better than the foam idea I had.

Not sure what you mean by class time but I think you mean by time in that class which moves you up to the next class? After so many times in the Novice class, and your improved times, they can select to move you up.

Depends on the club running the track time. Sometimes they will run a "classroom" session where a "professional" driver will talk and offer good pointers and general track knowledge while a different group is on track... But it all depends on who's putting on the track day. We belong to the BMW and Audi groups that's how we get track time, their clubs put on track days and we go to them. There should be a bmw or audi chapter in your area and they're usually all good people not snobs like you'd think.
Yea usually there is novice, intermediate, and in our "club" case instructor track times. Don't be in a hurry to move up, enjoy the lower classes and not having to move over much to get passed

quoted for truth, however my truck doesn't fair to bad mp4-12c's however are out of my league. Hopefully he will enjoy that class more than I did and if not well you can still learn in the advanced class. For only having 200 whp Torspd did very well excelling in corners where others depended on their more powerful cars to make up time in the straights.

And my last session of the day. Ended up having a couple issues. One being the leaky quick disconnect Jiffy Tite fitting, for the slave cylinder. It actually made it hard for me to shift between gears. Should be getting a Staubli connector soon enough to replace it. If it is FIA rated, then it is more than good enough for me.

On the third session, I started out slow. Was still a bit shaken from the previous session, about going off course and spinning out so much. Wanted to make sure the tires were plenty warmed up, and that I was in the proper mind set. It helped out a lot and this session is when I had my best lap times of the day. Nothing to brag about but for me to get a 2:05 lap with my low power and speed, make me plenty happy.

Didn't get a video of that one because the dang GoPro was dead. :/

This video is where my ecu started making the truck run like it was in Limp mode.

Didn't come off wrong at all. I want to get plenty of "stock" form track time. That way I can focus on feeling the truck out and fine tuning the my driving skills, before I put the serious power down.

Yeah, that hood need a new paint job. Clear coat has nearly all but come off.

And yes, I am a total newb with the GoPro. I completely thought that holding down the power button would override and just turn the camera off. Not the case. Lol
I know what you look like

Not at all. we all still have lots to learn to shave off more time to be faster and make less mistakes. I just learned a new line at turns 17 and 18 and I'm proud to say that our friend Danny improve a great deal, compared to his first time at a road course. Now if only I can be patient enough for the next race.

Two days prior to race day, I decided to install new shoes in the drums. E-brake was a bit incapable of holding the truck completely still. Well when I pulled the drum off, the shoes and drum were saturaded with oil. Gear oil.

After a little more tear down with the help of 1GRracer, we found the issue.

This seal was bad. Identical problem to what had recently happened to Memario. o_O Decided it was wise to leave the passenger side alone until after race day. Just incase another seal was bad. Picked up the last one from the local Toyota for this side, and replacement didn't happen until Friday, the day before. I was cutting it too close.





Removed with the aid of a screw driver.











Installed the new one, and was pretty much good to go, after a thorough cleaning of the drum, and replacement of the shoes.

Likely will have to replace that bearing soon though....

And here are all of the pictures that I took from the event.



The gang minus Grumpy



Grumpy



Our mascot Izzy



And finally added some stickers to the truck.
