    Midnight Oil Spec E30 race start video....

    Team Midnight Oil Motors decided to trek up the 13 hours to Thunder Hill to see where the new car is, performance wise. "Its a great test and tune before the National Championships" said Team Crewchief Seth Scally".

    We learned alot more than just racing by ourselves at CA Speedway like we did last month. Even tho we set a new track record each day of the event there for the class, we still felt we needed more track time to see where the cars strengths and weaknesses are. We competed against the well established teams of Norcal that told us exactly where we were at. Now we have a game plan to make improvlements to the car for Miller Motorsports park, site of the NASA 2010 National Championships.

    The battery dies early into the race which was unfortunate. We started 17th. There was action all the way to the checkered flag where we eventually finished 9th. Sorry for the watermark in the middle of the screen. I used a free video editor for the Quicktime files that the GoPro produces.



    Here is saturdays race in its entirety. Had to break it up into 2 parts. Its a 25 minute video. Enjoy!

    Sick man thanks for sharing.

    Is engine modding pretty restricted in that class?
    Need to keep it stock?

    It was a pleasure working on that e30 in the middle of the build! Thanks again Sean and Midnight Oil. Can't wait to see more progress.

    The engine is completely bone stock. We dyno'd there after we did the 2 hr enduro and it put out 150hp 150tq. Everyone else had @ 7% more power and tq than we do, so its hard to keep positions when they can just drive right by me. The black #69 car made 159hp and you can see how he would just drive around me.

    It was a great test and tune and we gained some valuable data on the car and our competition.

    They actually raced pretty clean. Very hard, but clean. Were looking forward to the championships. Hoping for a podium but, one never knows!

    Hey man, you need to come back and clean the car, its durty!
