racerx78 Posted April 8, 2013 Report Share Posted April 8, 2013 Well after 5 months of “gently” breaking the car in. It finally time for the racing season to begin. Besides some fun in the snow last year I really haven’t been able safely push the SHO to see what it can do. I won’t be going to hocking hills until sometime this summer, but should be able to do a HPDE as well in July. The cars main job will be AutoX running G stock in RTA. Two weeks ago was our regions first “Fun Event.” A ton of cars showed up in a GTR, 911 GT3, Lotus, and a GT40 Replica. We had a fast course with some sharp corners to trip you up. Took the car out there and did much better than I expected. The SHO handled very well. The chassis is setup nicely and stayed composed and did have any excessive body roll in a car this size. I could easily induce some liftoff or brake oversteer when needed. The TT EB motor gives you more than enough power when you ask for it with no lag. I know now that I am not as concerned with getting the car tuned. I was never in need of power. I have the PP with the shorter final drive but even with this course I was able to manually shift to 2nd and just keep it there without it topping out. Overall out of 100 cars I came 1st in RTA, 25th in PAX and 53rd overall. It will be fun to see how the rest of the season goes. I’m not sure of what competition will have this year. I had some problems with my SD card for my GoPro so I don’t have any video but here are the pics that were taken. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
