We actually did the first initial shakedown and testing last Saturday on the high banks of Fontana Roval Course. All-in-all, it was a good day! Ready to get this beast back up north on familiar ground/tracks.

It was my first time ever at Fontana, needless to say the first few laps on the high banks at speed were rather intimidating and I felt somewhat lost on the infield as well.

I didn’t have anyone in front of me, so that made the first few laps rather confusing. Having no idea when or where to brake and how fast or tight the turns were going to be! Fortunately, it didn’t take long for someone to pass me, which was a blessing! I needed someone to follow.

Thanks for checking in!
Cheers,
VID

Awesome to see someone tracking the turbo at this level. What's your tire/wheel setup for dry conditions?

First outing in Northern CA on Monday at TH. Had a successful day with the new build. Needs some fine tuning up front with the suspension, sways, and possibly higher tire pressure????

I am confident we can get this all sorted out before Sonoma next month.

Sorry, no in car race footage. Forgot to delete the data from Fontana and the chip was full : [

Cheers!

Sonoma Raceway, Cinco de Mayo!

Still needs some additional suspension tuning, but its getting better with every outing! Looking forward to Laguna the first week of June!

Cheers, VID
