    Hey every one,

    Hope I find you all well and happy.
    1st of October for me. Which signals one month into spring. Days are longer! 6am it's light. 7.30 pm dark.

    Since there is no journal for every day stuff none aquarium related that I know of, this is going to be the go to for the track day adventures and other things with the track car.

    Car is a

    Sxe-10 alttezza.

    Recently upgraded the radiator thermostat and hoses.
    35 percent more cooling now.
    Next is a true cold air box. And a dyno tune with the new air box and car will be dynoed to run r100 fuel. $2.65 a litre for me here. Amazingly cheaper on track and of track the running r95 or r98. Even though the other two are 10c cheaper a litre.

    So one month to get ready then a decent track day event is one.
    Well more power cruise show off and the rolling drags I want to do.

    Tell you though it is addictive this racing. Not quite as addictive as marine keeping.

    Talking of which hmm I have ideas to do in the reef world for money to fun car.

    I've got quite a bit of time on the track. I'm hoping to get my competition license this year, then start racing open wheel next year.

    One of my first experiences on track in my old car at Mid Ohio:


    Autocrossing my current car:


    Track day with my current car at Gingerman:


    Track day in a rented 318ti at Watkins Glen:


    24 Hour race in a rented Chevy Beretta at Nelson Ledges:

    Well this year is off to a slow start.

    No racing yet.
    Decided to pull the motor and take it to full na upgrade to what I can afford.

    Forged internals
    Updated cams
    Updated springs lifters ect.
    Headers.
    Link ecu.

    And a fair bit more.
    Goal take it from current 5th gen beams out put to 250+ whp. And for the type car I have in the rs200 altezza is a very potent track weapon.

    Let's say $10-15k is vanishing really fast.

    I have been up those ranges that they are in. But not doing that, I would be keen to try it though.

    Three more days and she is out on the track for the last time with the stock engine.

    It will be interesting how she goes with about 60-70 more horses and different torque bands
