Who's ready for some 2000s?

This week we will be running some slightly older cars in the dirt.

Last week’s event had a low turnout, but at least I won one.

Fuck 3d printers

Seriously... The tech isn’t there yet.

I spent about seven hours fucking around with my solidoodle press. I thought it was printing first try, so I left it to finish while I went to crossfit. It must have frozen as I left, mid print. This means I have to take the extruder apart to clean out the stuck plastic

Then I do some googling and see that they released fixing instructions for how bad they...

Wheel bearing help? -update

Wheel bearing help? -update

Update- turns out they sent me a wheel bearing kit for a Mercedes. There’s a sicker on top of the box with the e36 part number, and a sicker on the side with the Mercedes part number. 33-41-2-220-987-M34 and 123-350-00-68-M34. Not sure how that happens. Anyone ever had an issue like this with pelican? How easy is the return policy?

Ralle36 Update

Beemer life has been interesting so far. After putting it off long enough I have finally started the rally prep.

This past sunday I did the rear struts. Easy enough, remove wheels, disconnect strut, put new strut on, bolt everything up. I’m using Bilstein HDs until I have a few rallies under my belt and I’ll actually be able to use better suspension.

Today I got my engine parts and got to...

Wintertime DiRT Rally! (New Season)

Stages end Tuesday, 12/22! Event restart is enabled so you can try again if you crash out.

It’s getting cold out, and that means it’s time for some winter rally action.

Winter Wonderland dropped today along with 1.0. It includes 12 stages from Rally Sweden, as well as the VW Polo WRC and Hyundai i20 WRC.

Seeing as how the first WRC event is Monaco and the first Rally America event is Sno*Drift,...

Much good, some confusing.

I replaced the diff speed sensor and three of the ABS sensors on the e36. That took me all day. All the ABS sensors broke during removal. But I got rid of the last code. I can finally get full power! No more weird fuel cut at 5500.

However, the CEL is still on. Drove around for a while, light didn’t go away. Cleared the code through Torque. Scanned a few times and it...

DiRT Rally Problems

DiRT Rally Problems

Love this game so much, but the bugs are very frustrating.

My latest issue is FFB crashing completely. Since they updated their FFB model, it feels great for a while, then suddenly it’ll go to zero feedback. When I go to try and restart Logitech Profiler, it won’t even open and I can’t kill it through task manager. I have to unplug and reconnect my G27 to get things working again.

Anyone else...

Night rallycross is fun

Yesterday was the Detroit SCCA Day/Night rallycross at Oakshade raceway. The surface was very loose and very fun. I managed to get 3rd place in Stock RWD. Video of my runs below:

I was definitely working hard to keep the car moving in the right direction. There was understeer to oversteer multiple times in the long corners, left foot braking, and a lot of throttle manipulation....

LeMans setup. How are you all watching?

Streaming from the app is broken. Had to put my monitor back on my desktop to cast from there, but at least I didn’t have to pay twice. Casting from members.fiawec.com, it’s like $11. Laptop has timing and car stream up as well as radio LeMans.

I’ve got my 360 hooked up to an rca to vga converter so I can play Fourza in low def during yellow periods
