Buttonwillow CW13 hot lap 2:07.7 -- GPS speedo is inaccurate

Slower CW13 lap with correct data 2:10

Willow Springs Big Willow hot lap 1:41.9 -- data is correct but video and audio has issues. This is a scary fast track, need more confidence to drive here at 100mph+

Some more laps from Buttonwillow with data

How do you like the bushings? were they a pain in the ass to replace?

Also how do you like the Fumoto valve, I've been on the fence about getting one.

Bushings - You can't do it at home unless you have a press. I installed them at 1,000mi so the bushings in the car were still soft and a pain to remove. It took a local shop 3 hours total for the install. Cost me $300 for install.

Fumoto - no issues, buy it and enjoy easier oil changes. I've had these on all my cars.

Edit: forgot to say if I like them. It added more caster which is what I wanted. Also they are very stiff, helps keep the car more planted at the track

Where did you get those numbers on the doors? What size?
Great build so far!
Trackdecals.com takes a few weeks to get them. As long as you make sure the car is clean and the magnet is clean it does not move at high speeds. Highly recommend it

Here is my order

Which org do you run with ? Trying to do some SoCal tracks this year
I'm in SoCal but I've been following the NorCal guys cause they are active in going to the track. They are part of the Turn8 org. A few of us are going to their next event at Buttonwillow

In SoCal I also do Speedventures events but their Saturdays have been too packed lately. Sundays are usually good.

On July 1 I'm going to Laguna Seca with SpeedSF

Let me know how the Whiteline top mount works out. I am hoping to get to -3* camber in the front and can鈥檛 do that just with bolts.

I may be at Laguna July 1 so see you there!

I鈥檓 excited to see this post! I鈥檝e been wondering what people like for alignments for their N on track. I personally track a little east, over in Tooele, Utah, haha. I鈥檓 not racing with any groups yet, I just enjoy the open track time. Maybe I鈥檒l get there in the future though. So the SPC bolts were all you needed for the camber? Does your current caster depend on the bushings you have installed?

Alignment is just gonna be all the camber you can get up front, up to I'd say max -4.0. If it's a daily as well, I'd go -3.0. Rear will follow whatever you can get up front, but with those numbers I'd go 0.5 less negative on the rear, tho I dont know how much the rear can get stock (example, -3.0 front, -2.5 rear). That said this requires both bolts and plates.

With just bolts, you can only get under -2.0, so then I'd go just 0.1-0.2 less negative on the rear. Toe is always gonna be neutral all around, tho maybe a hair positive (toe in) on the front if it's a daily, just to limit tramlining a bit.
