RYANN RIDES TOO

Ryann had been asking for rides in the car for a long time, I had taken her up and down the road a few times but she couldn’t really see and the belts didn’t fit very we’ll, She is only 3 after all, So I came up with a plan of modifying a polystyrene kids booster seat to fit inside my race seat and to accommodate the 5 point harness,
I spent a bit of time looking up all the rules in regards to booster seats and children etc and all it really says is that a child of her age needs to be in an approved booster seat with a 5 point harness, we’ll that’s what I’ve got but the safety approved seat is slightly modified, but it is sitting inside a FIA approved race seat and belts that also has a roll cage around it, I think it’s pretty safe and has worked out well
I don’t think her head would able to hold up a helmet yet so we’ll just be cruising around for

TUNE

Ok so I’ve gotten a bit behind on the blog updates, I’ll try to get back up to date,

So with a drift practice day coming up I decided that I would take the car down to STM (speedtech) for a couple of inspection run on their dyno just to see where it was at, And it was bad, It only put out 160kw and the tune was all over the place, We couldn’t leave it like this so the car was rebooked the following week (The week before the event)  for a full tune, I was very happy with the service i received from the guys at STM, With daily update on where they were at with the car was a great piece of mine, I ended up picking the car up two days before the event with an extra 52kw, Very happy but no time for a test drive so I would have to wait till the first time I hit the sweeper at Manfeild to see how it would go.   Event post to come…
