Project Rattlesnake: #17 The fastest Toyota at Honda Nationals

The team at H Nationals had oganised a track day at Winton and for the first time ever, were allowing an “other” class to compete. This class was to cater for the myriad of K swapped cars out there that might not have Honda chassis.

But much like the story of my entire misfit life, I was the only person not driving a Honda that had entered.

Using the Kpro for RPM and Speedo.

I also managed to lose the body moulding off my rear guard on the drive up.

20160730_162011

As I walked back to my car after drivers briefing, I was pleased to find that Per-Win-kle smash repairs offered a drive in drive out service.

20160731_091023

This track day would be the first time I’d be driving Tart with VTEC and with full revs available (at this stage, the limiter is set at 7600 rpm).

With that in mind, I had two objectives:

1) To achieve my life long dream of getting Tart into the 30’s at Winton.
2) To win a wager I had set with Kam. This wager involved getting within one second of his street tyre time he had set in the TT RS (1:38.2) in my car on the same brand street tyres (AD08R’s).

Muffin to see here.

Session 1: Untimed

Unfortunately, it had been raining the entire night before and the track was very cold and still wet when we started in the morning. This resulted in multiple yellow and red flags through out the day as cars became unstuck or bogged in mud.

h nats-16

Session 2: 1:42.4810

As I was now able to rev the car out, I had to figure out which gear I needed to be in and wasn’t quite feeling comfortable in the car yet. The AD08’s were also having trouble getting up to temperature on the cold day.

h nats-12

Session 3: 1:40.7220

After some discussion with Rhys and Tom , I realised that I was using a lower gear (3rd) than I should have been (4th) when going through some of the corners.

5 speed gearbox habits die hard!

h nats-40

Team Honed representing in group D.

I also noticed that we hadn’t quite got the cold weather tune right yet as the motor was hitting lean cut coming out of some of the corners.

Session 4: 1:38.9470 – NEW PB!

With the new gearing advice in mind I managed to PB!

As I saw the green sectors flash up, I knew I had PB’d but I also knew it was a sloppy lap. I figured I’d attempt a back to back PB and went into turn 4 a bit too hot.

My erratic lift off caused oversteer and moved into a slide that I knew I probably couldn’t correct. I decided it was a smarter idea to let it run off into the low side of the track with the only thought being that I had to save my precariously low hanging sump from destruction.

Unbeknowst to me, the rain had turned this part of the track into a full blown swamp and I spectacularly sprayed up a 3 metre wall of mud and grass which then proceeded to coat my entire car, engine bay and parts of my interior.

h nats-67

I was pretty thankful I hadn’t flipped the car when it dug into the mud however, I then noticed smoke rising.

Wait. No way what is happening?! It’s not on fire is it?! Have I popped the motor?

After a few seconds, I realised that the smoke was actually steam and it was caused by the hot rotors and exhaust coming into contact with the cold swamp water.

Unfortunately, I had bogged the car so deep into the mud that it required a rescue which resulted in a red flag towards the end of group D’s session.

Sorry guys!

h nats-61

Session 5: 1:38.9100 – NEWER PB!

Admittedly, after the off, I thought I should count my blessings and call it a day. I had got into the 1:38’s and my car was still straight and running.

h nats-62

But my friends are always there to offer their unwavering support and said, “Don’t be a bitch, go out again.”

h-nationals_28105028463_o

Lucky I listened to them as I managed a slightly faster PB!

13909398_1137618439632843_8483167609830943346_o

Ying’s thoughts:

By now you’re probably thinking,

“Hey Ying, you must be pretty happy you got the car into the 30’s!”
On one hand, I really am happy about it. I didn’t think on it’s first proper outting I’d already able to tick of this achievement butttttttttt… that annoying PB monster that lives inside of me knows it wasn’t the best drive.

It’s time for a new target.

How about a 1:36 on street tyres? That sounds about right….right?ūüėõ

h nats-41

Next steps:

– Claim my free dinner from Kam.
– TJB will have another look at the tune and it might be time to unlock the redzone!
– EXE track day in September at Winton Raceway.

Unfortunately I dropped my beautiful OMD camera on this day so didn’t manage to take photos of all my friends who were driving and also PB’d on this day. Well done guys!

Shoutouts:

– Team Rattlesnake/Honed Developments (DCW and TJB) for helping me build a car that ran flawlessly on this day.
– Andrew for all the non watermarked track photos and to Folk’s photography and PT works for the others.
– The team at H Nationals for putting on a fun day despite trying conditions
Autosphere for supply of fluids
– And last but by no means least, to all my friends who came along to support and watch me achieve my long time goal!

Nugget Nationals 2016 ‚Äď Round 2, Dyno Day Pt. I

Round 2 of Nugget Nationals saw a flock of tiny cars congregate around Weltmeister Eastside.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

As usual, we sent the invite out to our other friends to come join us for a BBQ on an unexpectedly pleasant winter day (I’ll cover this off in the Part II post).

To assist the power challenged Nuggets in the track rounds, we’ve awarded points a little differently and in reverse order.

This means that the Nuggets with the lowest kilowatts have been awarded the highest points for Round 2!

Nugget Nationals 2016 ‚Äď Round 2, Dyno Day Pt. II

For part 2 of the post, we’ll be checking out the less fortunate people who don’t own Nuggets but were kind enough to come along and join us at our dyno day.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Big thanks to my co-organiser TJB who helped put this day together while I was OS.

First up, my car, because I can haha.

After suffering a minor coolant leak, Tart stepped up to the rollers with working VTEC and the ability to rev.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Apologies to TJB who had to tighten the hose clamps while I was trying not to be sick (from non-Honda related reasons).

Tartlet set down a healthy 143.7KW with the K24.

This was actually more than I was expecting so it was a pleasant surprise.

Alan seemed pretty pleased with the result too!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This was 23 more kilowatts than the TD04 powered 4EFTE previously in this car but final power figures only tell half the tale. The torque and usable power curve makes the Starlet much more enjoyable to drive than the old motor.

I don’t know anyone that likes Z32’s, but I do know that everyone loves Tony’s Fairlady (myself included)!

122kw for the non turbo zee.

Bong’s DC2 dyno’d a very healthy 126.6KW.

Andrew’s MKII is very easy on the eyes.

Not too bad, but the future will be bright for this particular little Mazda…

Winnie’s car broke the dyno.

The car was too fancy and the ECU freaked out when the front wheels weren’t spinning and refused to make any power.

Weltmeister specialise in European cars, but there were plenty of cool Japanese cars on the hoist too!

More white cars in the car park, as Johnny had also come down in his freshly painted NA.

He wasn’t dynoing either but he did enjoy smashing that sausage down.

Henry had purchased a car (or two) to try his hand at grip driving instead of drifting.

He was incredibly suprised when his B16 powered EK made 90.5 KW.

And then a wild Mines R34 GTR appeared…

…and everyone got a boner.

Yes, THE Mine’s R34 is in Melbourne.

All Toyota Winterfest 2016

Monday 13th June, 2016.

It was Queens Birthday long weekend which also happened to coincide with one of the two car shows I attend in the year, Toyota Winterfest.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Thanks to Brett for lending me his lens on this day.

Conveniently held in the suburbs at Sandown Raceway, I enlisted the help of Brett to drive the Echo so I could get both my cars down for a spot of hard parking.

As booze buses were out in force for the long weekend, Brett was unfortunate enough to get pulled in for a random breath test while I cruised past in Tart.

The police officer’s expression changed when he saw the cage in the back.

Officer: “Geez, there’s a bit going on back there isn’t there?”

Brett being totally chilled out and not prone to panic played it cool.

Brett: “IT’S NOT MY CAR. MY FRIEND OWNS IT, SHE TRACKS IT.”

I was about to text Brett that the engineer papers were in the glove box, when I saw him coming back up the street and smiling at me as the police officer had simply laughed and sent him on his way.

“I am disrespectful to dirt!”

I was lucky enough to park next to the only other EP82 that was there on the day!

This tidy example actually runs¬†air con parts from Tart on it. The Starlet community is small (or maybe I just hoarded too much EP82 stuff…).

More gloss black paint envy.

For the first time in ages, Mic was out at a car event with his Beams swapped AE86.

A few hours in,¬†we remembered again that we all didn’t really know what to do at a car show¬†and that I¬†was also hungry. We all left to get lunch and decided over food to all go home, swap cars and¬†go on a mountain drive instead.

Before we knew it, we were back in our spiritual home in the mountains.

I was excited because after I took that last photo, I smashed down a hot jam donut.

A very clever Grape King.

In the few hours of quiet that I have after returning from holidays and starting a new job tomorrow, I’m going to smash out a few catch up blog posts.

First up a Grape Kings x Averyclevertitle collab!

Sunday 12th June, 2016

My good friend Brett had been patiently waiting for Tart to be driveable so we could go out one weekend and go take some photos.

All photos used in this post were taken by him. Check out his IG: @averyclevertitle and Flickr account.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

We didn’t really have a location in mind, so naturally when we drove past a Parish Church, I thought we should stop and take some photos¬†of Tart in a very unnatural setting.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

A bit later in the morning, Tony joined us and we all went and had breakfast.

27582923016_8cba59df2b_k

For some reason, whenever¬†Tony is around, manual labour always seems to be involved…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

As usual, we got sick of hard parking and decided to head to the mountains. Adam was away for the long weekend so we called Charlie up to come join us.

Tony/Ying: “Hey Charlie, we’re going to go for a drive, want to come?”
*5 second pause*
Charlie: “Yeah, alright.”

We later found out that that 5 second pause was because Charlie was debating whether or not he could be bothered putting pants on.

Thankfully he did.

Project Rattlesnake: #16 “Weighting” for VTEC

After the successful Winton shakedown without VTEC, we thought it might be a good time for some K Swap dentistry to get to the bottom of the teething issues.

EXE_Winton-13 (Medium)

Big thanks to Steven Le for this photo and making my car look like less ugly than it actually is in real life!

Dan was eyeballing top dead centre and everything appeared to be ok.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Can we just take a moment to appreciate how good the headers look since changing colour?

After turning it over a few times he noticed that one of the blue links was out. Looks like it jumped a tooth on our first start up.  Oops!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The cable tie pointers indicate the inlet was 5 teeth from the middle of two blue links and the exhaust cam was correct at 4 teeth.

After some man handling and clever manoeuvring of the chain, Tom and Dan managed to carefully turn the inlet back one.

The VTC error code had cleared but it was time to go on a test run to see if the VTEC gods were smiling on us.

As it was raining on the test run and wheel spin presented it self in 1st to 4th gear, it was hard to tell whether or not everything was fixed.

A check of the data logs show some peaks can only indicate one thing.

VTEC!!!!!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

At the time of writing this, I have still not actually experienced VTEC in the dry.

Thanks to DCW and TJB for their help and smarts as always. This stuff is beyond my understanding.

As the problem was rectified much earlier than anyone had anticipated, there was also some time left over to weigh the car.

Passenger side front: 290kg.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Drivers side front: 280kg.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Drivers side rear: 160kg.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Passenger side rear: 170kg.

This brings the Starlet to a total of 900kg with the interior still in, a full tank of fuel and a 15×7 wheel and tyre in the boot that I forgot to take out.

That’s roughly 30kgs heavier than the 4efte set up, but a small price to pay for an infinitely better¬†drivetrain.

At this stage the next outing for Tart will be at dyno day in July, followed by HNats at Winton where I’ve been allowed a special guest entry.

Looking forward to seeing what lap time I can get now that I’m able to rev it out and have full power!

Wakefield: Yez x Pez

When I caught wind that my¬†friends at¬†Yez Racing¬†we’re running their first track day at Wakefield Park,¬†there was no hesitation that I would be attending.

Whilst the day had no official timing, it did offer an open pit lane and it wasn’t hard to convince the usual suspects to join me on a 1500km round trip to NSW.

Sunday 29th May, 2016

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

As I go through the photos I’ve taken on my phone and camera, I’ve noticed that the past few track days I’m less interested in capturing the track action and more inclined to to capture the fun moments in between.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’m not sure about you guys, but as¬†we get older (and fatter), I begin to dread the weekend of fast food which is often associated with a track day road trip weekend away.

Fortunately, I was in Sydney lunching with my favourite hipster Narada a few days earlier and he mentioned that we should stop at the border and check out The Proprietor.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The gnocchi and pork belly poached eggs that Tony and I shared did not disappoint.

Thanks for the recommendation Nads!

By now you may have noticed that Team Rattlesnake are not in their K powered cars. We had decided earlier that we couldn’t be bothered working on them after EXE track day so we’d take our Nuggets instead.

Tom’s Civic “Heathcliffe” had been out of action for over a year and was announcing his triumphant return this weekend.

600kms later, we arrived in Goulburn at the Big Merino as the sun was setting.

And as stubborn as I was, after struggling for over half the day to get any heat or grip into the tyres, I had to agree that maybe it wasn’t the best¬†choice.

It was time to officially retire the Hankooks¬†and return back to the brand new RE003’s that I had driven up on.

FB_IMG_1464695287345

Thanks to Vijay who showed up out of no where and provided a live feed for our friends back in Melbourne.

This was the first time I’d driven on the track with the¬†new Bridgestones¬†but I was very impressed with their performance.

I managed to match my PB previously set on AD08R’s. The tyres only took a lap to come good and provided consistent grip lap after lap.

A++ will be buying these for the MX5 next time they come up for sale.

20160530_170355

I actually didn’t even have to use a jack to change the wheels. Tony is so massive he just lifted up each side of the car for me.
