300ZX Drifting at Irwindale
First Sideways Sunday event at Irwindale. It poured hard, making the course set up in the infield very slick and inconsistent. You either hydroplane the front, slip out the rear too much, or both, if you hit the deep puddles.
I did a compilation of 3 of my best runs. The front had trouble gripping in certain sections, and the rear would slip out form under me in other sections. Fun course, just wish it would have been dry.
For those wondering, the main suspension modifications have been Powertrix UltraLites with 8k springs front and rear, Tein tie rod end spacers, SPL Pro outer tie rod ends, and a Carbonetic 2-way LSD.
The car is also on 18x10.5 Volk CE28s front and rear with 265/35s front and rear, RE01-Rs up front, and Kuhmo ASXs in the rear.

This car was set up by John to run a flex fuel tune. The vipec ECU interpolates between fuel and timing maps depending on the ethanol content signal. This allows the car to run on any mixture of pump gas and ethanol without a problem. For more power, all what's required is to fill the tank with ethanol and the Vipec will do the rest.
Future plans for this car include setting it up with a secondary fuel tank for E98. The secondary pump in this tank will be activated manually when needed. This allows the ability to increase or decrease power (correctly) while on the fly.
