First event of the year was today.



My wife about to take off first time in the STi.


Waiting on final times, but the new alignment and new spring rates are doing wonders.

Despite low tire heat due to a very cold day the car did great. Loose enough to fling it around, but loads of traction. I noticed the setup is softer, but it honestly feels faster.

IIRC; 1st in Class, 2nd in Raw, not sure about PAX. Will post final times and vid later.

My 2nd best run:

Event #2 was yesterday.

1st in class, 2nd in RAW, 9th in PAX.

Final Results, #2 - Event #2 Dave's After School Event - Sun 04-13-2014
Final Raw Time Results, #2 - Event #2 Dave's After School Event - Sun 04-13-2014
Pax Time Results, #2 - Event #2 Dave's After School Event - Sun 04-13-2014

The car has a lot of off-throttle oversteer which is nice for rotation, but even at part throttle she is a little uneasy. Power fixes this to some extent, too much and it becomes understeer.

Right now I'm debating trying to dial in a bit less oversteer for some better rear traction or just leaving the car alone.

Event #3 was yesterday. Ended up within the top 10 PAX, #1 in class, then somewhere around #5 in RAW IIRC. Final results should be posted soon.

Last year the issue wasn't all that apparent, but having two drivers in 95 degree weather has exposed a serious weakness. My TMIC is getting seriously heatsoaked and spraying isn't keeping up. My best run was the 3rd run of the whole day, as it was the morning session. The last half of the day the car just felt 20%+ down on power and my times kept slipping. My wife noticed the speed difference too.

There was a straight that I was hitting 3rd gear during that first half of the day. During the later half I was just topping 2nd.

By "spraying" do you mean the stock sprayer or do you bring something else like a weed killer sprayer? I have yet to have a co-driver on a 90+ degree day, but I can usually get the IC cool to the touch within a couple minutes using a weed sprayer. My CAI and larger turbo help keep temps down as well though.

I don't see anything else listed in your first post, so I'm guessing you're still using the stock intake? You may have been losing timing due to the high intake temps. I think once you hit 135*, the timing starts to retard. A CAI helps a lot with that issue.

Were you still hitting target boost? How were your oil temps?

I got my oil cooler after seeing some really high oil temps during a hot two driver day.

It's awesome the wife is racing with you!! keep it up!

also, you could freeze some ziplock bags of water to put on the intercooler between runs. They keep your water bottles cool in the morning too! Dual purpose!

Sorry, I'll clarify.
-Stock airbox
-Avo turbo inlet
-Grimmspeed heatshield
-Process West TMIC
-Stock sprayer

I was just using the stock sprayer in between runs. I've seen guys use a garden sprayer, so I may load one up with ice water and a little rubbing alcohol.

As for oil temps, yes, they got about 10 degrees higher than usual. I measure it in the oil galley, so at idle it will sit 180min - 200max, then while driving on the interstate or after a run I will hit 220 max. I was seeing 230 yesterday after a run. This of course has a lot to do with the heatsoak as the oilpan temp was probably a lot different.

I discussed it briefly with my wife and kicked the idea around of an oil cooler. Just not sure how much I trust a Mocal sandwhich plate. Anyone have issues with filters clearing the exhaust manifold?
