    Did some time attack things this weekend. I registered the Mazda for the full season but we know how that went…

    did my last event in my civic.

    My MS6 buddy did well very time wise but he took home 11th. He’s a novice driver with a highly modified car so it’s in a stupid class.

    as for the civic I maintained 3rd all day…till the guy in second showed up and knocked me into 4th. There is drama surrounding this guy and that he cheated(has unclaimed power mods) but I really didn’t care.

    one thing I learned is the car is dead nuts consistent. I had it to the point where if I even moved my brake point up by 10ft I wouldn’t make the corner. Footage to come. Pretty cool. My fastest lap was my last lap where I finally found my line again through a couple corners. Instantly started picking up time until it started pouring rain which ended the event early. Damn lol.

    Update on the Mazda.

    I’m gonna start pulling the motor this week. Clean up my small garage. Organize. Drain fluids, pull front clip and axles. Then I’ll have my buddy bring his hoist. We’ll pull the motor. I had an offer to use a friends home machine shop for rebuild. He’s got everything you’d ever need, plus heat for over winter. Sounds good to me!

    should have the motor ready to come out within 2-3 weeks.

    That video was an open lap day. No helmet required. Anything goes. First real time I tracked this civic.

    Got the party started today.
    Made some room in the garage. Started draining fluids. Simple shit but this really shouldn’t take TOO long having done it not so long ago already.

    Need a 24mm socket for trans fluid drain and a 32mm for the axles. Once I get the trans fluid drained out I’ll probably pull the front clip. Then the axles. Then from there it’s maybe a day or twos work and that’s it. Pull the sucker out and rebuild.

    Is your passenger side frame rail super bent outward? Was the car in an accident?
