Happy new year!

Well summer has gone and so is carina again under construction...

couple events behind,FinnJAE 2016 and middle finlands dynoday,and lots of daily driving.

finnjae went well but dynoday didnt...
clutch melted to dyno so no numbers and heating problems went so bad that engine must be taken pieces in winter.
well its good time to put there some better parts for the next summer.

i made little paint work to body before finnjae,much better overall look ūüėé

i also take my oldie to home after 2,5 years break

fuel pump was dead but after i change that it only needed new battery and fresh fuel

couple videos,first try end of the summer:

and next in my workshop when it finally started:

there was quite lot of rust underneeth,5-6 big rustholes must repair and something i have to do to chassis. coilovers to front and drop pieces to back atleast.
new wheels are coming too and maybe that modern 3zz-fe engine...
if i get lot of inspiration...

its so ugly now ūüėĚ

 i try keep this blog alive again.
so many things to do and so little extra time...

but happy new year to everybody! (if somebody is reading at all this)
new year,new tricks!

v8/gti 1/4mile track day completed

And carina took me there and back too.

4 starts,best one was first:


3 others i try drive better time but in every start i did something wrong,too much wheelspin or gear miss...

this was my first time ever in real 1/4mile race against clock so overall it went quite well!
next time hopely with better tires (now i use my 195/55r15 street tires) and lock in rear end (detroit locker truetrac is waiting in my garage).

then i think that car goes 13 point something,after that i need much much more power and then it starts to cost money...

but thats motorsport :D

streetman drag race 4.6.2016

In vesivehmaa airport,near lahti.

5 euros/one start

you only need inspected street car and a helmet and some clothes that covers your skin.

hopely there comes no rain,there is little possibility for that but i dont believe before saturday comes...

im trying to get my coupe there.
need new tyres and rear springs wich i have to change in next week.
also cars clutch is question mark,there is that much power in engine so this standard 2rz engine clutch is on the limit to hold all torq...

i broke drive shaft while i was "training",i change used one there and it seems to work fine so far.

i couldnt get car to my repair shop so i have to change it at home,didnt like that all...

trying to get time 14 point something,lets see how it goes :)

garage happenings

Lexus sold and carina in garage under progress again

New daily driver is under investigation,something like gs300 was but little bit newer.
now we drive this winter with -00 yaris wich i save from scrapyard.
it only needs little bodywork (litlle accident in front) and inspection and now we have driven with it almost two months.

in garage carina is getting new suspension finally.
front struts first,i get for cheap price (20euros ;) ) vw golf model 5 adujastable shocks and h&r springs and those i plan to fit to original hub.

those need little "adapters" to fit but i have friends who can machine to me what i need so lets see what is coming.
lower arms i need longer too to get right camber angles,if i cant find rightones then i customize originals.

rear axle turn is later and if i have time before summer comes i do something to engine too but that isnt main point now...
little service is enough.

updates more when there is something to tell!
