Trackside: Haltech Weekend Warriors

It was a great weekend for the Maatouk’s team with KING32 running a string of PBs culminating in a [email protected] record pass.

“We really wanted to get into the sixes today but we ran out of Co2 on the last pass, but hey who can complain when KING32 consistently performed, smashing out PB after PB!”

Over in USA, James Short from Shortuning won the Stick-Shift class at Street Car Takeover held at National Trails Raceway just outside of Columbus Ohio.

“A huge shout out to Dalton Winfield, Shannon Corman and Haltech’s Eric Gash for all the help this weekend. We went against the odds at Street Car Takeover stickshift class and made good clean A-B passes all night and ended the night with the win!”

 James is using an Elite 2500 in his Turbocharged 370″ LS 4th Gen Camaro.

Our own Eric Gash also raced at the Street Car Takeover in his prject Corvette.

Eric was able to put an [email protected] on the board in a test pass.

Hard work payed off for Makdessi Brothers Racing with a successful test day at the Sydney Dragway. Sporting a brand new setup the went .02 sec within its half track PB with the driver backing off just before the 1000ft marker.

“There’s plenty more in it! A big thank you to Dale, Dave and the boys from Haltech to make this new Elite VMS work.”

A massive weekend for the Keeley Motorsport team and Gools Evo (above). After qualifying 1st and taking four wins from four races it was a clean sweep of the sports sedans at 2 days of thunder at Queensland Raceway.

Brian Bugh took his Corvette to the Australian Time Attack at Wakefield Park Raceway.

“I was on some four year old A050 tyres and struggling to find grip on them. Still managed a 1:03.5 untill clutch started making an unsettling, rattling sound.”
Brian still managed to come within 0.1sec of his PB at Wakefield and finished the event 7th outright!

Also competing at the event was Ian Porter in his Ford Falcon ute.

Ian managed an impressive 1:04.73 lap time on a race track that is more suited to smaller, lighter and more nimble vehicles.

Jake Porter debuted his AE86, a project 10 years and countless late nights in the making.

The car was finished the night before the event, so this was very much a shakedown for the 86.

The car looks immaculate and runs a neat 4AGE 20V black top with a Haltech ECU in control of it all.

“I had lots of fun. The car feels great and the Haltech keeps everything running smoothly!”

Aden Hadley put his Nissan 180SX through its paces but suffered from many all-too-familiar race day problems.

“We had a few issues, from two melted hoses at different times, and an intercooler hose blowing off, to water pushing out of the radiator and the engine overheating. This caused coolant to spray under the car and on the tyres making the car incredibly difficult to keep in a straight line at times.”

Despite all that, Aden managed to place 6th in the open class and 15th outright and  with a 1:06.40 lap.

“I am very very happy with the outcome. Car will lay black lines in almost any gear and is an absolute weapon to handle. Most fun I’ve had with my pants on!”

Aden’s 180SX runs a Haltech ECU, IQ3 dash and is tuned by Adam from Just Engine Management.
