The IDA event set to take place at the Creek on the 15th has been cancelled. instead in its place IDA will be having a night at Oran Park on their drift circuit on Friday the 20th. With a dry track and only 20 places available it promises to deliver a good time. Myself and a few local friends have already secured our spots, so only disaster will stop us competing. Two days later Oran Park is holding ‘Driftland’, NSW biggest drift comp. The best 5 drivers out of the twenty on the 20th will have a chance to enter this competition. On the last days form I would not expect to get picked but if it were going by the first skid pans efforts I would be more confident. Fingers crossed then that I drive as well as I can and get to drive in both events. I will be at the 22nd event spectating if not driving at least.
I have become aware thanks to DumHed that I need an S14/S15 coolant elbow before I install the Apexi turbo onto the car. It turns out the coolant feed for the turbo changed on the transition from S13 to S14 SR20DET, and I will need to make this change if I intend to utilise my braided lines in full for the installation. More news as it happens.
