Talking Video: Track Day at Homestead with NASA 3/24/2012

Here's a video from this weekend (3/23-24/2013) at Homestead-Miami Speedway with NASA. Running stockish boost the second day, because the first day was essentially a throw away, troubleshooting a 30FF (Underboost) condition. Finally found the issue, Forge diverter valve hose (connecting to charge pipe) had a micro-crack that opened up on the back side. Hard to find, fixed it after the fist day, but decided to run stockish boost to not force things. I say stockish because it was around 10-11 PSI to run some 50/50 water/meth for cooling (not power), it was hot 86-92 degrees this weekend and humid.

Anyways, the video plus some pictures with the new Apex EC-7 9.5 all around (fitment is perfect) with Hankook TD's 265/35/18 (they're almost a 275 with 272mm section width).

I got those tires, just because I was curious, wanted to try them out (soft compound), may try the hard compound next just to compare.

Also some random fun during the event (Harlem Shake)



Pictures -- credit the on-track pictures to Maeiourk for taking them, very cool of him.
