Tighe Cams Rnd 3

Today Jezebel ran in Round 3 of the Tighe Cams series. Didn’t manage to better my times – about 0.3 seconds off pace – but the little mods I’m making are definitely heading in the right direction.
 
So far only minor changes since the last time out – new muffler (less restrictive) plus heavier race sway bars, with multiple stiffness settings, plus the first incarnation of my in-car video system. I had the sway bars set to be only slightly stiffer than the old street bars – about 1/3 of the way through their adjustment range – but even that has made a big improvement in handling. Definitely got better turn in on the hairpins, and much easier to keep smooth on the track.
 
The new muffler has brought a slight increase in grunt from the engine too – one huge power slide out of the first turn, which although it felt awesome and looked impressive just wasn’t the fastest way round.
 
Oh – and although camera placement needs to be worked on a bit, I’m totally stoked with my first go at video’ing a run !!! See it at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cw5-tzde89A and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7TVZYxLuHWE
