    Yesterday was time for Round 2 of the Championship. Won the FWD Drive class which was also the fastest outright on the way. New PB on fastest lap by 4 Tenths and equal first in the championship.

    Was having a bit of trouble with it running out of legs just before the corners on 2 straights so went up to a 185/70R14 (from a 185/60R14) Tyre profile on the front and it seems to have worked nicely.

    One of the heats got a bit argy-bargy. Nothing a mallet couldn't straighten out afterwards.

          Cheers! I've certainly improved a heap from when I started. I think I have the smallest engine capacity in the field.

            After playing dodgems with the FTO last month the car gained a rather large oil leak, at first I thought the rear main seal had split. Went to top the engine oil up and it was already full, meanwhile there was about 2 litres of oil on the ground. Continued on like this for the last race of the day and then parked the car up.

            This weekend between showers I pulled the motor and well the pictures tell the rest of the story.

                    Yep, Diff looks to have exploded and made some speed holes on its way out. Might have had something to do with the CIG locker.

                    Made a fair bit of noise with the shrapnel bouncing around the inside of the belhousing but I still won the last heat with it in that condition and zero oil in the box.

                      Slapped another wrecker motor in this a few weeks ago after the gearbox failure in the previous outing and went racing again today.

                      Car ran faultlessly all day and apart from losing indicator brushing a tyre bundle, the car left as it arrived. I put 20 litres of fuel in it, which is enough to do the next event as well before refilling. Best bang for buck racing around!.

                      Left the GoPro at work so no in-car videos this time.

                      1st equal today so pretty stoked with that and also equal fastest lap down to 1000th of a second (55.280 vs 55.280) so very close racing.

                        Nice work!
                        I've really missed not doing autocross this year. Such great fun for so little cash.
                        Lots of minis & mokes including a G13b powered Sports Sedan, a couple of Swift Gtis, a Goggomobil, Porsche 928S, Polo Gti, BMW 540i, a WRX and a few others.

                          Bit of a late update, but won the 2017 Championship last year, not bad for a little old Corolla. Definitely the best bang of buck motorsport event around.

                          Unfortunately moving back to Brisbane puts this event at >4 hours away so I'll probably do a Rosberg and hang up the RallyX boots.

                            After not having time make the 8 hour round trip for each event last year, the car has been sold. New owner has every intention of abusing it around a dirt track so not all is lost. Grassroots Motorsport at its finest.
