    Boosted Coupe Autox: Twin Fountains 4/7/12

    Here's the newest video of my car at the local autox. It is at a new to me course. I have never run there before, but I am hooked. After my first flub, I learned the course pretty quickly and am anxious to get back out there. Hopefully I will be able to run that same course on May 19. I will definitely be filming that one because I really want to see how I can improve my times. I was 3 seconds off of the closest person in my class. I can make the time up, but ran out of runs due to car troubles at the start of the afternoon session.

    That's what I am thinking man. This next autox is at a different track, but the one after that is back here. I can't wait. I am psyched about Sunday. I want to see how these settings help me out. That VW and Cavy are killing me.

    Looks like a pretty fun venue, odd to run right next to grass huh hahaha.

    If I'm ever in the area and there's an event I hope you want a co-driver.

    I would love to have you co-drive it man. Weird, I know, but I have actually dreamt about it. Seriously though, no homo. Well...maybe a little. Lol

    Well, ran the car this weekend, and holy shit! My car has never been so fast! On the down side, I am pretty sure I broke something. Not sure what it was at the moment. After viewing my datalog, it could be anything from supercharger to lifter. I have a nasty rattle that I can't quite pinpoint. Datalog showed 19psi though. Went and checked out vortech's website and supposedly this supercharger is only supposed to max out at 14. Hopefully I didn't cook the SC.

    I'm assuming that the put an upper limit on the supercharger due to the use of a cast compressor wheel. Can you get a billet wheel upgrade for it? Or use a larger SC pulley?
