Pete, thanks for the gauge thread.
Yeah you got to calibrate the AFR sensor, 'don't forget that' note to self!
Got an AEM AFR to install and looked at your placement and not too bad to see the OEM dash too.

I will look into that for mine again.
Cheers Al

Good to hear no damage :D
Were you able to take a glance at your new gauges out there.

:drinks: yup, it was definitely good to see the oil temp. When it got too hot, I just did a cool-down lap and then attacked the track again. AFR reads high 10's/running rich and 18-20psi during WOT.

Thanks Al. Yep, I did calibrate the AFR sensor, which brought the value down from 22.4 to 14.7

You could have left it at 22.4:1 for the much better fuel economy :lol:

That's great going in the Forester! Was there anything you felt lacking or not comfortable with while you were chucking it around the track? I'm a fan of those wheels too - what size and offset?

Hahaha! Surprisingly, I only used about 30-40L for the entire day.

May be great but definitely more potential in the time for sure! Until next time haha. It's not the first time I've tracked with the forester so I've added mods along the years/track days. I would say bigger brakes, a proper seat/harness setup and semi's would be the go if I wanted to really improve my times (after finding the potential of the current setup). An oil cooler would be good for the engine.

Regarding wheels, they're 18x8.5 +42 offset.

Thanks Kyle! Slowly improving... haha I think the wet day was a really good experience. It helped me with my lines & braking/throttle positioning. And the fact that I did a PB, I can't wait until the next time I'm back there in the dry!

Thanks mate, it was getting drier, but I couldn't fully re-adjust in time or have enough of a chance to get use to the drier conditions, since it was wet all morning.

Hi all,

Video of my PB lap and half of one if I didn't stuff it up! :lol: Up to the point that I f*cked it, I was doing 1 second faster than the previous PB lap up to that point in comparison. Also haven't adjusted from the wet and was braking way too early haha

Looking back at previous videos, I think my lines are better; throttle timing is better and turning is better/smoother (mainly due to the quick rack). Probably could do with a better driver, but he's still has lots to learn! :lol:

Anyway, video for your entertaining pleasure. Oh, and some photos from other people from the day too. :)

Cheers,

Pete.
