Just a little more than a week to go and the team went for its night practice yesterday. The car is slowly coming together although there were some last minute gearbox works and wheel alignments done earlier in the day to make sure our outing was purposeful. With our 2zz engine currently limited to 6k rpm and the VVTL-i not functioning, our lap-times last night seem reasonable.
Hopefully the new clutch, flywheel, VVTL-i repair and the dyno tuning that are gonna be done today would slash a few more seconds.
Tom’s Stickers did a great job with the decals although a few more stickers for additional sponsors are still coming in. Thanks to all who participated in funding the team.
The morale of the drivers are very good and most of the team members were present to support wherever possible. The drivers were consistently getting improved lap times as the night went on. We are confident that our drivers would make us proud.
We might be coming to Sepang again this evening to test out the tuning works and to further familiarize the drivers with the limited visibility of night driving. In the meantime, check out these pictures from last night.
