dry lake day 1...

love the early morning crisp air on the lake bed. 


 drivers meeting


our friend Wata got so excited because he's ten steps closer to his long-held dream, to be participate in land speed racing with the 280Z that he's working on now, and just being on the lake bed is adrenaline-pumping for him.


Alp and Jalika, they are so close to the record here.


the first pass!

111mph. shinya said he wimped out because it was his first run in a while plus the course condition wasn't great today. when it comes to racing, there is no "next" you have to do your best at that moment. however, we are doing this for fun so i don't want him to fly off the handle. so 111mph is okay.


he found the distributor screw was loose and the ignition timing was retarded. it was stripped so he wired it for a temp treatment for now.


the course condition was terrible so the officials had to move the course. when the new course opened, there were many people still waiting for their first pass. we just waited and waited for the second pass chatting with other racers...


unfortunately, the race was over before we got a chance to run for the second pass... bummer!! well, luckily it was two-day meet so if today will not, tomorrow may ;p


 ☺☺☺☺ ☺☺☺☺ ☺☺☺☺ ☺☺☺☺

shinya decided to go back to the workshop and replace the distribution screw and reset the ignition timing.
