    Nice write up. I'm a big fan of pcars having owned one (996). I'm currently working my e46 M3 to get ready for more serious track days. I'm hoping to pick up a NSX this fall/winter.

    I'm still a big fan of P-cars... M-Cars... F-cars... C-Cars... etc. They are all fun and rewarding to pass. Yes Sharkwerks, keep posting pics of your giant ceramic Italian brakes, they are gorgeous! It's going to feel that much better when I chase you down in my vintage ricer

    Btw, My clutch was indeed the culprit. A new Comptech clutch is going in along with some other Comptech bits My budget just got "BLOWN" to kingdom-kome

    Re: Building a $50K Track Tool to beat $500K Track Tools

    Wish I could make the 05/11 Speed Ventures track day at Infineon but my car will still be in pieces. Also had to cancel my 05/17 HOD track day at Infineon but I am registered for the 05/25 Speed Ventures track day at Infineon Raceway.

    Here's what we're working on presently:

    Comptech Powergrip 1 Performance Clutch Package
    Comptech 2.3L SuperCharger
    Accusump Oil Accumulator
    Fender Mounted Oil Cooler

    No guarantees it will be done in time but we're hellbent to make the 25th.
    Pics to come.

    1K2GO, great post and pictures!

    Also coming from the Porsche world (20+ years) and road racing, it was a revelation to experience a NSX on-track at 10/10ths.

    Indeed, I am in the capable and experienced hands of Shad Huntley and Driving Ambition. He has more experience with race prepped NSX's than anybody else on the left coast.

    Although supercharging is not my first choice, it is the simplest and most cost effective means to my objective of breaking the hearts of all those high dollar, late model super cars. Stay tuned...

    I would love to see Shad's version of a fender mounted oil cooler. Also will you be running a cooling solution for the 2.3l supercharger?

    I might make the July 1 laguna seca speedventures. If you'll be there I'd love to say hello and see the car!

    Last time I drove a car at Laguna it had 9 turns. Geez I must be old
    Problem with Laguna is my car is loud and they have no sense of humor.
    Can you come up to Sears on the 25th?

    Shad and I both subscribe to the principal of KISS (keep it simple stupid).
    The cooler is an Earls, very simple and straight forward. I have had many discussions with Shad about intercoolers, aftercoolers, o2/Meth and every other known and unknown method of keeping IT's in check. We have decided to keep it simple, high volume (2.3L SC), low boost (-10psi). No coolers, misters or injectors of any kind. A simple, conservative approach.

    My discussions with Shad about peak HP usually go something like this:

    Shad: "Oh, you'll have plenty of power"

    Me: I'm not interested in peak hp on my first lap, I'm much more interested in knowing what this motor has on tap on lap 10 when I've got that pesky (fill in the blank) in my cross hairs and I'm setting him up for the pass..."

    That's whats nice about Shad, he's built hundreds of these kits including some world beaters, like Kip Olson's, who happens to hold the lap record at Infineon btw. We're not reinventing the wheel here and I don't need 600whp to be competitive..

    IIRC Shad charges about $2K to fabricate + install. I got mine 2nd hand from Kip Olson for $1K + $200 installed.

    I started racing in SoCal and built my 911 for RIR (Riverside International Raceway). Living in NorCal now, I am very fortunate to have 3 world class road courses all within 2hrs drive, Infineon, Laguna & Thunder Hill. Willow Springs is a 6hr haul so its not very practical aside from the fact that it was never one of my favorite tracks. Now if they didn't turn Riverside into a shopping mall I probably would have never moved North.

    They closed Riverside in 1988 and I moved to NorCal in '92... Draw your own conclusions

    Having Sears Point only 45min. away is like having your own private disneyland. It makes it so easy to set your car up in your own garage the night before and go.

    Building a $50K Track Tool to beat $500K Track Tools

    Target 0
    Here's your basic $500,000.00 track tool - Ferrari 458 Italia
    Rumored to have between 600 & 700whp
    Full cage, air jacks, P-Zeros etc etc.



    The other red 458 is his daily driver

    Building a $50K Track Tool to beat $500K Track Tools

    Updates
    We were back out at Infineon/Sears Point yesterday (05/25) for the Speedventures/Trackmasters event. Great turnout with lots of high hp, well prepped track cars including Vettes, Vipers, Lotus, Ferraris, M3s, even a Panoz and a ton of Porsches as usual. We were not able to get the CTSC installed in time but we did get the CT powergrip clutch, fender mounted oil cooler, Accusump, reinforced front splitter/undertray and 'bigass' wing intime. The car ran fantastic and although we were way down on power, we were still able hold our own against most of the big dogs. Hopefully next time they see us, we will have something extra for them...
    Cooler

    Accusump (tucked in right rear fender well)

    Splitter 1.1 (rob proofed)
