After Round #1 I put the car in storage and didn't touch it again until the weekend of round #2. During this time I did a LOT of research on various Limited Slip Differentials for the C60. My original plan was to purchase a "used" TRD helical differential from a UK-spec MR2, since they are so affordable and maintenance free. But that plan soon fell through when the supplier I had bookmarked sold out, then the only differentials in that price range were on Ebay...so no thanks. At this point I started looking at NEW torsion and helical differentials but that turned out to be a mistake as well since they were close to the price of a new clutch-type LSD. To top off this nonsense, all of my fellow racers that have experience with a torsion or helical differential told me the grip is nothing like that of my previous Cusco clutch-type unit. So now I've contacted Cusco again and learned that the C60 Type-RS LSD is a special order item from Japan. Of course it is. Time to save up some money....
February 18th 2018 | SCCA SDR #2
This was our second event with the C60, and like last time you will see a ton of wheel-spin. At round 2 I was a bit less anxious about the gearbox and axle combo holding up, so we focussed more on dampers and driving styles. We added another 2 clicks to the rear dampers and the lift oversteer was awesome! There was a ton of long slides and epic saves from both of us, but again Patrick bested my time by a second.
I did 3 fun-runs after the main event and committed to a "up to 3rd and drift" plan. My first 2 runs I hit cones but on my 3rd it all came together and I put down a 56.0!! That really helped my confidence since I have now been beaten twice in a row, hopefully I can remember what was learned today. Now lets see if I can keep my courage and shred tires for Round #3 on March 18th! Check out the video of round #2 below.
