I'd have needed another pair of shorts after that.

Yeah, that is another issue I'm having. Car doesn't have ABS and with no weight in the rear the brakes lock up super fast. I need to install a brake bias valve. After that run I took the turn wider and was easier on the throttle to avoid spinning out. It's true that I'm glad the car is finally running... but it has taken far more money and work than I thought.

Yeah, it is in KilKare. It was a night autocross that starts at 3pm and ends at midnight.

what brakes and tires do you have on there? looked mostly like the fronts were locking up, i think a bias valve is mostly just going to delay/reduce pressure to the rears. time to practice modulating! something ill need to do too when the datsuns running (speaking of more money and work than i thought )
