Congrats!

Quick question - you have any idea what it would take to swap the Mazda telescopic steering wheel onto the Fiat?

No idea, I expect it becomes standard with 2019 Fiat too.

I'm hoping so - that said, if the GT doesn't make it to Oz I'll be looking for a 2016 launch edition - there's hope of course, just this last month Fiat brought out the "Monza edition", a run of some 30 odd cars dedicated to Carlo Abarth!

Previous SCCA day with Hoosier 245/40/17 on 17x9. First time we ran that combo, quite a bit bigger than 245/40 Rivals we usually run on same wheels. These need SUBSTANTIAL fender roll PLUS our offset bushings.

Sorry, don't need any more than our Good-Win Racing 12.88 kit for the biggest California tracks. Recently did test the new Stoptech setup and did not like it at all, wrote up some details in our ND testing thread. Likely the next step for us on brakes is do some ducting.

First driving day with Tork MotorSports E85 Tune after Rocky did the E85 ATP injector installation today. Fuel shower cooling effects will get proper testing this Summer, starting with SCCA in the heat of the day tomorrow. Just some fun runs up and down the coast today but excellent first impressions, so smooth!

SCCA Autocross SSM Class WIN today for the Good-Win Racing Fiat 124 Project. Win in class and just half a second off Top Time of Day that was done by an open wheel formula car. To put that another way, Project Fiat 124 was the fastest daily driver with A/C and interior, etc. Great result for the new Tork E85 tune, it ran flawless and pulled hard on every run on a HOT day, air temps 92 F in the shade which is why we parked under the overpass after our run group.

My Buddy Bruce in second place Supercharged Miata (he has beat me plenty of times before but today was our day).

Yesterday's autocross, our very tight SE lot location is not as flying fast as the stadium west lot, very tight course and relatively short runs for a San Diego event.

Very keen to hear more about the E85 - people say good things regarding forced induction, so a credible source with actual 124 experience would be much appreciated!

...while I'm busy spending other people's money - any more news on the turbo rebuild - is that something you might offer at some future point, possibly as a complete "Good-win stage xx" type deal?

Speaking of which - what are you running as far as engine management software, anything interesting or is the stock gear "good enough" so far?

Congrats again on the autocross - was certain those last few cones were going the way of the dodo :lol:
