    Mediocre at Cresst - now with nsfw autophilia

    Yeah that is one good thing about Wild Horse Pass is the track conditions are really easy on tires. I didn't even kill a pair of tires drifting all day. I just still can't comprehend why most local tracks, close their doors more days of the year than they are open. If there aren't cars on the track, your facility isn't making money. Wild Horse Pass has so many tracks and they only use a portion of a full track for drifting. I don't understand. It's not hard to believe why Bondurant filed for bankruptcy.

    Yeah, when people from Washington can't comprehend why people like me in Arizona aren't drifting every weekend and getting so much seat time, this is why. This is the only track that isn't 2.5 hours away and the facility only opens the track 1 day a month maybe. Lines are long, course is short. It's all we got. There's a really cool go cart track that allows drifting, but it's a pretty good drive away which is a reason for not going often. I'll do the most I can.

    I had so much fun sliding yesterday! I almost didn't think I was going to be able to drive because I order 2 pairs of tires. The first pair I ordered they shipped the wrong diameter, then the second pair never arrived. I was super bummed, but I said fuck it and just went and bought 4 nankangs from a local llantera tire wholesaler. It ended up not being a bad deal, but now I have more tires than wheels, which I guess isn't a bad problem. Loaded up ready to go. Unloaded my shit and ready to party. Here's a link to me doing the day course. It's short, just three turns, they don't let you manji the first straight. https://www.flickr.com/photos/123773347@N08/31008691027/in/datetaken-public/ I didn't have any friends with me so I didn't get much videos or photos. Sucks, but I still had a lot of fun. I zip-tied my cellphone to my passenger seat in hopes that I could get a video of me running the longer night course, but it really turned out looking like Michael J. Fox filmed it. Shit quality, but you can make out the course. It's like 6 corners and a manji straight. I was in third gear then downshifted to second after the manji. https://www.flickr.com/photos/123773347@N08/31008703247/in/datetaken-public/ While not having more videos and photos sucks, the good thing is the car ran strong and ran very well. There were no issues to report, I drove it to and from the track with no problems. I loved the way it handled and I can see many more drift days in the future, so hopefully I get some coverage one day. Don't hate my driving, I'm still learning. lol

    one thing I wish I did was reshape the bellhousing opening for the trans tunnel. It would be nice to have more clearance around that area so that it is easier to get a socket and wrench up above the trans to access the bellhousing bolts.

    Finally more progress on this build, but I see you're going deeper into it. Don't fall into the pigeon hole of, "well, while I'm here....I might as well..." Then you have a three year Creesida build you never drove. lol Either way nice work, I hate that fucking bump when I had the stock twins. No issue with single lol.

    I also started installing some heat shielding on some hoses. I obviously haven't gotten to the extent that I want, but it;s a start and I will continue adding with time. I may get a turbo blanket. Not sure yet. I'm thinking of at least adding some gold reflective tape to the wastegates to help prolong the life of the diaphragm. Feel free to add suggestions.

    Leading up to my scheduled drift day, I have a couple things I want to take care of. Most importantly is better securing my battery. Last event I was at, the guy at tech was tugging the fuck out of my battery box and broke one of the strap loops. He said, "Sorry about that...I'll let you drift today, but make sure that's fixed by next time.." Thanks dick. So I bought a billet hold down tray for my Optima and called my good friend Marc the fabricator. He drew up a design and started making a holder. His goal was to make a holder that the battery tray could mount to, that was very solid, but was also removable. Here's what I started with. Autozone battery box. Probably not the best thing every, but it works. Billet tray for Optima batteries. Seems to be nice quality for $60 on Amazon. At this point, Marc and made a square bracket for the tray to attach to out of square tube. He then made a plate to run up and utilize the three threaded inserts for the spare tire bracket. This is how the holder is looking. For the attachment point on the opposite side, we decided to drill a hole and weld a threaded insert so the bracket can be bolted to the car. I scraped away some of the tar and grind away. Marc using his clever trick of using a unibit to drill a hole that will capture a nut and allow you to weld it in place. Flush, now time to weld. Welding on the seam sucked with all of the gasses from the seam sealer, but Marc made it happen. Marc decided to relocate the ground as he used a larger thread bolt than the wimpy bolt I was previously using. I'm super happy with the turn out. I'm going to put that spare tire brace back in, but this this is sturdy as hell. The suspension will move before the battery, so that's a win.

    I don't think I've checked the wastegate ports on my STi in the 6 years I've had it installed lol, but I'll keep it in mind.

    The way I have it is the only way it will work and is what is required by Tial. Top port is for keeping the wastegate closed, typically controlled with a boost controller, lower port is to open the wastegate to bleed excess exhaust when the charge piping sees a pressure exceeding the wastegate spring pressure. It's not over-engineered, it's what is needed for a properly set up twinscroll system. I'm going to be drifting on Nov. 17 and will be practicing with stock arms and knuckles. I plan on extending the LCA's and modifiying the knuckles later in the season which will give me front camber and more angle, but for now I want to continue drifting one mod at a time so I can understand and feel the difference.

    Thanks fellas! Casey, at idle? So you're saying yours idle so quietly you can hardly hear it? lol. The sound difference from twins to single turbo is massive. I'm sure a lot has to do with the fact the twins setup is very restrictive off boost and single is 100% free flowing.

    https://flic.kr/p/2bjQGAX Decided to go out and get some audio of the car. It’s not much, but I don’t have a 24/7 film crew like these YouTube faggots, so this is what we get.

    HA that's what I'm here for, to remind some of these old folk that a young whipper snapper can get a Cressida running faster than them.

    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Good thing Cressidas are still disposable and I can paint.

    Yeah Gibbs, and it doesn't help that I don't have any ceramic coated exhaust parts or hood venting. Luckily the weather is much cooler now, but I'm hoping to heat shield all the vital components near the exhaust. Thanks Casey! I'm stoked on the turn out. I'm really excited to take it sliding and I really hope I get some good coverage to post. The last few events I've gone to, I don't get any pictures or videos, so they just get lost in my memory. lol.

    After all of that, the car has been running amazing. The ECU is handling the new single flawlessly. I'm currently running 11.60 wastegate springs and seeing a consistent 1 bar reading from my Defi throughout the rev range on full throttle. AFRs are super healthy 11.2-11.6 WOT. Could be a little rich, but at least my fuel system is adequate for the setup. The thing is much faster than it was with the twins. With that said, I am definitely going to have it dyno'd to compare the difference. I'm also going to be doing some preventative heat shielding on hoses and things around the exhaust. The next drift event is on November 17th and I'm preparing my car for it. So I hope to have some good content to post here in a couple weeks. In the mean time, just look at more pictures. Cars and Coffee again... lol
