    So my wife is 39 weeks pregnant, kid could pop any day so I made some time today to get the car prepped for round 3 (which is the Ryan Pannowich Memorial Round) So I get to go racing, even though we will have a 7 or 8 day old baby lol

    Ticked off a bit of a list

    - New front brake pads (winmax 6.5's were in it, have gone with the same again, have done over 200 laps of mallala on the one set so yeah pretty happy with them)
    - Painted the new (2nd hand) BBS 15x7's
    - Fitted up 19mm rear swaybar (biggest you can go)
    - Gutted about 20kg worth of shit from the car, all the deadener is gone (dry ice fucking sweet), what was left of the aircon and stereo and a bunch of other shit, now the hard part is finding the next 20kg but ill get there eventually
    - Made a new intake (oem airbox was choking it a bit up top) used the finest $28 SCA air filter and 75mm downpipe bunnings money can buy!

    Car is basically ready to go for round 3 once I get my rubber swapped to the new wheels and put it back on the ground...very satisifed with todays efforts

    So quite an eventful couple of weeks in our house, my wife and I had our first baby on the 9th of August and it was a mad rush to get ready for round 3 of the Masters of Mallala which for the Circuit Excel guys here in SA is our Blue Ribbon event being the Ryan Pannowitch Memorial Trophy round, all a bit surreal for me as last year I was on the hill watching this event not thinking this year id actually be doing it.

    The small changes made to the car have made a monster of a difference out on track, I managed to cut 2 seconds off my PB and im into the 1:29's

    The new wheels look fucking sweet, the offset and width is spot on



    These cars are all about the 1%'ers, now ive got a little bit more grunt, a little bit less weight (Car weighed in at 18kg lighter than last round) and a little bit more grip ive moved up into the next battle pack of drivers and cars, the weekend saw me finish 18th from 32 cars which I am happy with considering last round I was 20th from 24 cars.

    Hopefully I can be knocking on the door of the top 10 before the end of the year

    Heat 1 I pulled a move I am pretty happy with on a couple of team mates, they buttoned off to avoid a crash, I basically headed straight for the fire and slotted the car between both of them haha



    The final race was a massive 15 lapper, which was under torrential downpour conditions, I managed to have my front window fogged up completely from about lap 3 onwards so i couldnt actually see (safe as houses), you can see in this pic a thin line where I was trying to wipe the fog off, it was all I could reach from the seat...not ideal but I managed to finish without much damage and drove the car onto the trailer under its own power




    Ill try and find another 15-20kg's to rip out of the car before the next round, will look at corner weighting and setting it up for me as well, probably ready to go some more agressive toe settings on the wheel alignment, still in shock as to how much fun this is

    Sweet! Congrats on the kid, exciting times.

    All the small changes seem to be coming together well, great improvement in lap time.

    I reckon you'll find 20kg. Do you need all of the washers in the car, all of the fender bolts, fuse box cover, topcoat, badges, door rubbers, latches, etc?

    There is about 5kg of weight you can remove from behind the dash, if you haven't done so already you can remove the rear in the front and rear bumpers to save weight. There is also some decent power gains from getting a fuel pressure regulator as well.

    Got a question about the rear bar, did you have clearance with the whiteline bar and the coilovers?

    Im assuming you mean the "reo" in the bumpers...considering the closeness of the series and my penchant for "racing incidents" im keeping the reo there
    Whiteline rear bar cleared the coilovers fine, needs new bushes though, the stock rubber jobs are fucked.

    Yeah reo, stupid autocorrect, I haven't had any racing incidents yet so I don't know how well it will fare without it.
    Do you mind if I ask what coilovers and rear settings are you running? I've got Xyz and running 4 degrees on the rear and it whiteline bar touches the coilovers.
    Nolathane have a kit for the excel off the shelf.

    Fair enough, I've heard good things about the Spax supashocks, i was too tight when i went with the coilovers and regretted the decision now.

    Plug the vacuum line to the fuel pressure reg.

    We did it on the rally cars, for a free but small gain.
