    I see there is a 97 gsx registered in SM. Does anyone know who owns it? Driver is Kyle Gottschalk.

    He is currently sitting in 12th after day 1. Hope he does well tmrw. Evo9s are sitting in 1st and 2nd so at least some Mitsubishis are still winning.

    Thats me. I did wind up spinning a bearing on my 3rd run the first day. Thats why the run is so bad, I could hear it as I was going around and it messed me up haha. Crappy power steering cutout also held me back. I will give an update in a few days. I have a travel home day tomorrow.

    Wow, that sucks about the motor. Surprised you still ran the next day with a bad bearing. Hopefully you still had a good time there.

    Have you done the PS high rpm cutout mod yet? That fixed my PS issues.

    For some reason I thought the high RPM cut out was a 1g issue.

    I believe it's a problem on both 1g and 2g cars. Even the 420a has issues with it. The pumps are different but Mitsubishi tried to do the same thing in all of them.

    Gotcha. It's been a while and I never really had to address it on the 2g since I didn't autocross or road race it.

    I'd just like to point out that the powertrain engineer from toyota chooses to race a mitsubishi. We can ignore the whole reason why he didn't finish competing though... Better luck next year man.
