arse freezing, again

Our black flag collection is not yet complete, so we're heading to Buttonwillow Raceway to pick up some more.

The above is a pic of the car getting hood pins. Since hitting another car at the last race, the hood didn't exactly close.

We took the car for a shake down day in the rain at Infineon. There are electrical problems. It also doesn't rev past 5k RPMs. It feels a lot like fuel starvation. We swapped in a new pump, and it didn't fix it. In fact, it didn't work at all. Brand new fuel pump DOA? WTF. At least we didn't find this out track side.

So in the next week, we'll:
  • fix the fuel pump
  • replace the windshield
  • replace broken kill switch
  • re-tape the stupid side mirrors
  • figure out what's clunking in the front suspension (loose sway bar endlink?)
Oh, and then there's the other car.
