So update for the weekend up at Brainerd International Raceway for Proving Grounds 2. I drove the car up to BIR which is a 2 an a half hour drive from where I live. The car drove fine getting up there some slight throttle issues that I needed to work out with the tuner, the guy that tuned my car was also at the event doing some remote tunes and helping me out also. That Friday the tuner and I went driving around To fix the throttle response issues literally only took him 30mins and we were pretty dialed in, rev matching, heal toe all felt great. Friday was pretty chill watched our buddy do some autocross, watched some drifting drank some beers to get ready for Saturday.
Saturday morning we do drivers meeting which took forever, I’m driving in the advanced group which is the first session up well we only got 2 laps in and a RX8 spins and hits a wall. They emphasized on the first sessions out for all the groups is if you got 4 off you will be cut for the next session, well this car was done for the event. Our second session got cut short because a Honda S2000 also went off track in a different run group causing a 45 min delay. To makes things short we got screwed for 3 sessions out of our 6 on Saturday and I ran 3 out of the 4 on Sunday because I had to run to the store to get some heat shield wrap for some wires.
Overall The car felt amazing I didn’t have any issues with the drivability with the car the whole weekend, even driving it back home. It seems I have fixed/eliminated the random miss fire I would get while on track. Once I got everything dialed in with the transient throttle with the tuner it was full game on. It literally drives like it’s on the stock ecu. Best time for the weekend was a low 1:53 not super fast but not super slow either.
The wether was also perfect mid to high 70s clear sky’s it was a great weekend overall I did have a spin out of turn 2 everyone there dosent lift going into turn 2 it’s about 118 -123mph turn that needs a lot of confidence and the right turn in well let’s just say I have the confidence but my turn in was bad and I scrubbed all the way till there was no more track left.
Here’s the video of one of the sessions.
and here’s the off track at 117mph on turn two scary but it wasn’t to bad.
