and now for something completely different...

Went to Daytona with the wagon (557) and wrote this mini report: Daytona Track day 4-14-2016 - FirstCoastCobraClub

More photos later if the professional photographers send me any!

Did you find the leak?

If you're not living on the edge you're taking up too much space!

The differential overflow in the Cobra IRS seems to be the culprit. I installed a diff cooler and pump which kept the temp down to 200F or less, but I guess the stock "bent hose" overflow got fed some real high-speed churned up oil. When it goes over 100mph for 30 minutes without stopping, I guess it's a problem...

I bought a Joe's Racing vented catch can and am now looking for a decent place to hang it.

Well, I had to go back. Short summary with a 3-minute youtube video here: Daytona/SCCA PDX May 5, 2017 - FirstCoastCobraClub

The new vent locations worked, but other learning experiences appeared - surprise, surprise...

I went faster, did better and will go back!
