After breaking our diff at Round 3, we now have our new diff with a slightly different ratio, going from a 3.9 to a 4.3 I was super excited to see how it improved the driveability of the car. For round 4 of Drift Cup at Teesside Autodrome we had practice day the day before on Saturday which gave us plenty of time to get use too the track and the new gearing.
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!
This year we will be bringing you articles from several drivers competing in the HEL Performance Driftcup season, Craig Taylor is the first in his unique RB powered Subaru Imprezza.
