Goona go and juice up and find some lanes...but had a few blasts on way home...she feels pretty planted on the road wheels...running full soft on rear 3 click on fronts...dont feel like driving a plank of wood.
Nice being back in the ol girl.

All driving fine...shake n bake is best description...crawling along in traffic with occassional blast..shes stiff and crashy on road. But boosting fine. Temps in check and brakes awesome...handling feels a million times better...
Maybe do the rotary only session to see how she is on track...if still wayward then back to 10 8 springs.
Had to put in a 2k idle as hunts or stalls makes pulling away nice n easy with the fierce clutch...
Jet wash time.
