After a successful Round 2 there was very little work required bar a few cosmetic touch ups. Annoyingly when loading up I noticed that one of my new Zestino 07RS Gredge tyres was losing air from the bead of the wheel. Thankfully our very own Fast and Furious Live driver Jodie Rasburn lent me her car to pop to local tyre shop and this was resolved in no time.
When we left BDC round one there was one big question, why did I only have 9psi of boost when the CA20 should be running 22psi on the Garrett GTX 3071 Gen2?
Round 3 of the HEL Performance Driftcup season at Rockingham Motor Speedway was one of the best custom layout that I have driven, it was fast and technical but very rewarding to drive if you nailed all of the clipping points.
I came away from Round 2 disappointed in myself for not qualifying although I had some ideas on where I could make some improvements to the car.
Round 3 of 2018 HEL Performance Driftcup season saw us return to Rockingham Motor Speedway for the second time this year.
After breaking the car in our top 16 battle at Round 2 of Driftcup we had a little bit of work to do ahead of Round 3 at Rockingham. We replaced both the drive shafts that we snapped as well as the rear wheel bearing that exploded and slightly modified our custom rear hub set up to overcome the weak point we found which lead to us snapping the driveshaft. With that now all fixed it was the usual oil change, map check/tweak, bolt check and wheel alignment before we were finally ready!
