    so as posted earlier by Joe we had a skidpan/gymkhana event a week ago.
    skidpan/gymkhana is like a gymkhana with the tight course made up of cones but on smooth cement with water on it. The skidpan is used for the advance driving courses for simulated slippery wet road handling but we use it for events

    Every time i go to one of these events i dont enter it to compete to see what my best time would be or to see who i can beat, but purely to have fun going sideways and pulling the e-brake as hard as i can without damaging my car or wearing out the tyres lol

    here are some pics of the event

    And for the work done on my car so far and the bad news lol

    so a lady in my complex decided she did not like how the front of my car looked so felt the need to mod it :(

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    i was heavy pissed!!!! i saw it happened and ran to my car, i lost it so bad that when she climbed back into her SUV and locked the door thinking i was going to kill her!!! what made me even more upset is that her car is only a week old as she wrote her previous car off due to her bad driving

    so popped bumber off and used a rubber mallet to remould it back into shape but now the paint is damaged. im glad that there is not much damage, the bumper was like 15mm away from my meth pump and intercooler pipes

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    ill get the bumper resprayed and repaired soon enough

    now for issues as of late.

    at full boost the car was pulling some timing and not feeling to good.
    decided to change meth jet from 225ml/min to a 375ml/min and that is sorted.

    now my throttle response went down as well and the car felt sluggish out of boost. so decided to remove the big catch tank and fit a smaller one that i made up and change some of the vac lines

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    car does feel more responsive and feels like it is not pulling timing at all.

    will do a log run soon and dyno and see if it has gotten better
