    Went to thunderhill this last weekend for a track event. Found out about it through the norcalevo boards but brought the del slo :) . The evo came just to carry all the stuff i couldn't fit in the sol, the g/f drove the evo up there, she was having fun with the car on the freeway, lol. This was the first time tracking the sol since i rebuilt the tranny with a 4.78 LSD and the ATS 16 disk LSD. But the car drove great, was very happy with it, now that i'm used to it again i can't wait to take her out again. However, i did somehow lose my 1st gear on saturday, it just doesn't work anymore, like its completely dissapeared. Oh, and 2nd gear grinds all the freaking time, lol. Anyways, this is a short compliation i quickly threw together of some people i know, and me just running a lap.

    And this evo was a race car built by San Rafael Mitsubishi, where i bought my evo. Before and after pics, he rolled it coming out of turn 8 :( . Thank god he was ok, cage saved him. There was also another white evo that died that day too, right before this one :( . Sad day for white evos, glad mine wasn't on the track.

    Nice video! That Cavalier did look a little shaky... too much corner for its stock tires and suspension huh? I need to get the Civic back out on the track. :(

    what was the guy who rolled setup?

    comp tires/stock-ish suspension?

    or did he just get a little sideways and catch a lip on a burm or something?

    the cavalier was an evo owners rental car. his car was getting worked on that weekend and he already had paid for the track day, why not track the rental car? haha.

    the sol has a type R swap in it.

    that evo was quite setup running DMS 50mm coilovers on R compounds. just pushing it too hard i suppose? i'm not sure what his track experience is, i didn't really get to see his driving.

    What kind of camera setup do you have in the car? It looked really good.

    Thanks, the suspension is used Tein HA's from an ITR (got them for dirt cheap) and an ITR rear sway bar, stock front bar and stock front strut bar. Tires are kuhmo mx 205/50/15 on some cheapo old ass rota 15x6.5's hehe. The car is built with almost all used aftermarket parts. The thing is freaking horrible to drive on the street with that aggresive LSD and no more power steering. Not to mention how stiff it is on the highway. But damn that thing is a blast on the track to drive, especially since i put in the LSD and FD. Thing has great traction and feels great now. I do need a new oil pan or baffle the one i have. I would lose oil pressure sometimes on turn 2 and coming out of the esses and drop out of vtec for just a second. Also, the thing has a stupid oil leak from the pan gasket, which i've replaced 3 times. I think the pan is jacked.

    Wow, if you're having problems with oil starvation in the curves, I'm definitely going to have to change out my oil pan to a baffled one.
