No bottom end work, bottom ends are cheap and its revving to an 8500RPM limit. I change the oil every trackday though

Got to do some high speed drifting at Pukekohe and even managed to finish 4th in Pro-sport class(Theres D1-Pro and Pro-sport which used to be called Pro-am)

Got clocked on several entries over 160Kmh and the highest I saw was 166Kmh on the radar list. Speedo is fairly accurate as it was showing 170-175 when I last looked haha

We only get to drift this track once a year because of smoke issue etc but its amazing fun, not many places you can be foot flat in 5th on entry and just never lift from the start point

Had a jam on the new extension of Hampton Downs circuit, was good fun, very grippy even in the wet being a new surface.
