Lol...I'm saving weight for the track so I got a smaller sub. I can't talk, I went with lighter amps.

They have race fuel at the track...get ready for a $150 fill up. It does take cards so you don't have to show up ballin' like Tony Montana. I would ask some HPF guys who go the tracks with turns what they bring as far as info, fluids and tools. Its nice to be prepared for the minor things that sometimes go wrong.

Yeah, the allen keys are usually the head scratcher. Then the torx bits are the showstoppers.

Dang, All that stuff isnt going in my M3...thats why I have a Dually (its in Florida right now) but sounds like i should carry my M3 to the track and not drive it or not push it hard

$150 fill up? Fuk that! i will run pump on this track and fill up with RACE on the straight 1/4mile track!

another reason why E85 is sooo enticing for us
$3.39/3.49 a gallon on post/off post f Premium pump 93 octane
$3.01/3.11 a Gal on post/off post for Pump 89
$2.91/$3.04 on post/off post for E85

perfect to replace RACE fuel at the track but not so great for long trips

Nobody. I just saw 89 in the post so I wanted to make sure everyone runs 91 or better.

I don't know about guys running HPF cars on the road course, but I always run race gas on my R32 Turbo on the track. Mainly for the cooling benefit as it does run cooler.

For anyone tracking their car I recommend adding a couple points of octane. So i would add a couple gallons of 110 to pump if you're running on the pump gas map, and 112 instead of 110 if you're running on the race fuel map. I also do not recommend running methanol at a track event as the fogger gets extremely hot when used for longer periods and hard turns will make you go in and out of methanol. Also remember to run your car completely out of pump when switching to the race fuel map. You cannot drain both tanks easily so drive the car until it says zero miles then drive it a little more.

For drag racing and street driving, you're fine running 91 octane and 110.

Chris.

I sometimes ran race meth fully at the track but apparently it's not such a good idea... so I'll drop that and will only flip the meth switch (as I used to do in the the beginning) only when I hit the straights (and the straight in Yas Marina in Abu Dhabi F1 circuit I heard is one of the longest ones )

I don't like running the fuel pump on fumes. Last time I ran the tank down to 1/16 then put 10 gallons of 110L. Drove it in pump mode til it was at 1/16th and then put another 10gal of 110L before switching maps to keep the pump lubricated.
It's costly... About as costly as a new walbro I'd imagine.

well thanks for the Lesson guys

I have never used meth on the track and nOW NEVER WILL.... Pump or Race fuel ONLY!

*Update*

No built motor This Trip!

so continuing on with the new PT6766 Turbo upgrade

Now, I am looking for a new Titanium tipped exhaust. seems like the D/S hanger has been repaired too many times causing the Vband to leak. that AP Gen 2 was $1200 and it has broken a hanger like twice a year for the last 3 years and i thought that crap was normal. i know now that its a design flaw. i hope HPFs Fabricator can repair it better then new

Is there anyway that you can use the meth as a charge cooler while staying on the race fuel map?

I have an old school AA water/alcohol kit and it helps TREMENDOUSLY at the track by reducing engine temps.

Yes, I can use mine in this manner just takes control.....of the finger

this is why i am having the snow performance "Low meth indicator light" installed to help me know when im running out or LOW on meth and turn it off in time

so i should be good

That's such a great idea. I'll post up a quick video of that when we're done hooking it up.

In addition to just adding more power with the 6766, Rico had us also do a bunch of miscellanous work to his car to get it back to flawless condition. We fixed a problem with his brakes, ball joint, added lots of missing fasteners, fender liners, windshield washer resevoir wiring, and we also did a leakdown and compression test to make sure the motor was perfect (which it was). We have a little more work to do on it and it will be on the dyno shortly.

We give our customers the opportunity to have things fixed once the cars arrive. Our techs know every single bolt, nut and fastener on the car and most customers choose to have everything put back to OEM before their car leaves our shop.
