Track Day 15 - Buttonwillow CW1 with PCA - 315/30R18 Falken 615s - LS7 Clutch + Aluminum Flywheel

For the 15th track day, we were headed to Buttonwillow CA. I haven't been at this track since my third track day, and I've had a ton of modifications and seat time since then. I was definitely looking forward to seeing how the car handled!

Modifications going into this track day

So after my last two track days, my torque tube bushings definitely had given up the ghost.

Track Day 14 - SOW CW - Further Oil Cooler Testing and New Suspension Settings

For whatever reason, late March through April is becomiing quite the busy week for us with track days. Monday March 27th we were just at Streets Of Willow, and here we are again just six days later at Willow Springs driving the cars again!

Track Day 6 - Now with a better seat and a 4 point Harness! Streets of Willow Counter Clockwise

So the Miata made it out to yet another track day, this time at Streets of Willow (SOW) Counter Clockwise (CCW). Boh was driving the car, and the track day was focused primarily on her working with an instructor to continue to improve her shifting and driving in general.

Boh was able to set a lap time equal to her previous best lap times clockwise (CW), which to me is impressive since I am 2 seconds slower between the two directions.

Track Day 12- Streets of Willow CW - AMT Differential Mount

So my 12th track day is now in the books. The temperatures were again quite cold and windy. As with last time I struggled a bit with tire temperatures and traction, but dropped my tire pressures a bit further and seemed to get better traction. I also adjusted my suspenson just a bit, which yielded fairly positive results.

Track Day 11- Streets of Willow CW - Delrin Bushings

The time between these last few track days was quite significant, clocking in at over 30 days. I generally am trying to run at least a track day a month, so this was quite the gap from that goal. However California was having a ton of rainy weather, which when combined with the Holidays meant that I had a large gap to tackle a project on the C5 I'd long been neglecting, installing Delrin bushings from Borg Motorsports.
