Piggy y u no start!?!?!

Posted 30-11-2012 at 03:18 PM by monkeee

So the piggy is hard-parked and shall be for a little while until I can get Jim @ BlueStar to sort out whats wrong with it.

Car basically started stuttering at idle and on acceleration a few days ago. Usually this is just a dirty MAF or bad batch of fuel or even a faulty fuel filter.

So fresh tank of fuel....problem still there. I cleaned the MAF with CRC MAF cleaner...problems till there.

Only barely got it home from my local shops today (2 minutes...

No Limits -15th November. Need Practice.

Posted 21-11-2012 at 08:50 PM by monkeee

So I hit up No Limits for the first time.

The best times I could manage from 2 runs of the long track and 1 run of the short track were:

Short: 64.2
Long: 75.9

Neither is really that great. In fact imo they were very slow but I guess it's a start for me to gauge where I am at and improve from here.

A mistake I made before hand was not even checking tyre pressure...100% confident they were too high given I did not pump them myself....

Seat Time.

Posted 08-10-2012 at 08:27 PM by monkeee

Like I said in my previous entry I will be getting some seat time.

Time to put all these mods to use and learn to drive better.

Going to be heading down for the November and Decemeber No Limits Nights (and many more hopefully).

Just need to arrange stickers + tagged extinguisher (I have one I bought a month ago, need to get it tagged or get a tagged one...always forget where to get them from).

Cannot wait.

Stupid monkeee

Posted 19-09-2012 at 01:13 PM by monkeee

So I did do that independent dyno run at MMS (in regards to my "lack of torque").

Car runs 197kw (265HP)/390Nm on the MMS dyno. Same dyno as RaceTorque but MMS do dyno runs in 3rd (boost is actually not 17/18psi, more like 19/20psi already).

As I learn more about dyno readings from teh interwebs, p-wrx and workshops I am content...actually more than content with the car (i.e. Im not hooked on one dyno run or ten dyno runs for that matter).

No brembos but still upgrading

Posted 31-08-2012 at 07:21 PM by monkeee

After doing a lot of research and thinking not mention the enormous amount of research done by Andrew (GTB Liberty) as well (thank you so much mate) I am skipping Brembo's. Too much cash to make it all happen (that is, a brand new set from the U.S. is the better part of $5k inc shipping...meh).

Going to just go for more aggressive pads (they are consumables along with rotors so meh).

So my options for pads (front and rear):
