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!
Not long after the dust had settled from round 2, we quickly went to work fitting a new braking system featuring a custom twin caliper set up from SR Autobodies and custom HEL Performance braided brake lines which now run inside the car.
Wow, what a day it was at DriftCup Round 3 at Rockingham Motor Speedway. The track was so awesome with the layout promoting close proximity.
IDC round 2 was back at the old ferry port in Dun Laoghaire for a second and final time and the unique location was perfect for one of the strangest events I’ve ever attended.
Since the dust settled at round 1 I have been working behind the scenes to improve the car as much as possible. We discovered a leaking brake line from the hydro which was causing loss of pressure in the rear brakes. This was swiftly sorted thanks to a spanner check.
Driftcup Round 2 at Three Sisters Race Circuit in Wigan was going to be tough for many of the drivers, myself included, as it hasn’t been used for competition in the last year or two along with the fact that it has recently been resurfaced.
