Part 12 : Time for the first race day!!!


Since it's done for the race day, it's time to R-U-N!!!
We are running under 2,000cc time trial class sponsored by Hankook Tire(called DDGT)

Here are photos from the race weekend.


























Pictures of our team mates(BROS Motorsport team)






















Although my car had some issue with rear suspension and ECU, I got the 2nd place on our class. :thumbup:
Gotta get 2nd place once I sort out the little issues.
Just didn't have enough time to sort out the thing for first race day.




Gotta have some girls at the event right?



The story will continue....

Keep up the good work. This build is Epic!!!
Engine and drive-train will mainly remain stock for now.

But we already ordered AEM EMS-4 for ECU.

The white IS200 is still running with 1G-FE & 4-sp auto.
Since the driver is new to track, he only managed to do 6th place on the class.

Now with 3S-GE w/6SP manual...it's totally different story.

Nice pics and congrats on getting 2nd place!

Too many people try to impress others and build their car to what they know someone will like.
You lose sight on what you like, when you simulate your likes around others dislikes.

Thank you!

Did some regular maintenance for next track day.
Installed new plugs, new brake pads...
Also added Hardrace adjustable rear toe link + tension rod.
Gave 0 total toe on the rear since the GT wing is holding rear pretty well.















Since I have took my IS200 to track once a month, here are additional pictures from recent track event/racing school held by our BROS team.
Now white IS200 also have 3S-GE w/6 speed swap!!!
Enjoy!



















The best shot from the event.

Part 13 : Stand-alone ECU swap!!


Because we modified stock i-ETAS to work only by cable, the Altezza ECU seems to keep learning the difference between TPS sensor and Accelerator sensor.
It caused some dramatic ignition timing changes over time, making car run poor as time goes.

So we believed it's time to go with stand-alone ECU.
Because of its cost and flexibility, we decided to go with universal stand-alone AEM EMS-4.

I also never liked the idea of running both ECU(stock and AEM EMS-4), we have made AEM EMS-4 to work truly stand-alone.
A/C and Dual VVT-i were also being controlled by the AEM EMS-4.



AEM EMS-4!!!





Bye bye stock ECU!! (another weight savings!!! HAHA!!)





It does take some good amount of times and parts to make it wok...
I will post up the results(possibly some good dyno graphs) once I finalize the tune!!!

Few reasons did not go with Apexi Power FC.

1. It's more expansive than AEM EMS-4
2. Although it's more $$, the hardware itself is very old-school. Also AEM software is far better to tune and have much wider tune "ability"

You just need to turn the throttle cable assembly about 45 degree to convert to full mechanical operation.
(But like I stated above, ECU will start to learn the TPS error)
