Not so much a did to, as a did with. We had a record breaking day here in Toronto, at 18C, so we did a top down drive for ~2 hours north of the city. This means I achieved my goal of driving at least one day top down in every month this year. While that’s not a big deal for the southern US members here, I consider it a reasonable accomplishment for my locale. March through November aren’t too tough to do but December through February are a little tougher. With the Love the Drive screen, windows up and a touch of heat, anything around 3-5C and above is reasonably comfortable. I’m happy to demonstrate that my convertible is not a “6 month” car!

There will always be a bit of negative correction here and there while normal driving which is normal and ok. My data logs showed 0 negative correction...only positive and zero knock at WOT in 5th gear up to 6k rpm. I leave it plugged in while driving to work so obviously it's going to show the lowest and highest values of the whole drive.

I only get a very occasional negative correction and its very minimal at that. normally less then 0.5 of a degree. I leave mine plugged in as well..

Ripped off a couple datalogs for Ryan this morning for v1.1 e30 tune, he added in some ignition timing for v1.1. Looking at the logs today there was once again 0 knock and 0 negative ignition correction during the 3k to 6k WOT pulls in 5th. First pic is v1, 2nd pic is v1.1

, when you painted these, did you have them just like they are in the picture? I’m getting ready to paint mine and need to know if it would be better to stick something through the cardboard to hold the lug nuts up so when they dry, they don’t stick to the cardboard or whatever I’m using below them. Btw, yours came out nice!!
sry..been away for months..finally got around to getting new iPad. How’d you do? Your instincts are good. i sprayed the lugs 5 at a time on a board i hammered nails thru as to avoid sticking...just in case. i did just spray them all together on the cardboard tho for the last layer of clearcoat. my neuroses can only extend so far o_O

There are a few stations in the Northern VA area that I live close too.
We have a couple "E85" (speedway) stations here in E. TN, but I noticed that they are now labeled as "flex fuel" instead of E85. I`m wondering about other parts of the country and also what % of ethanol they are elsewhere?? Thanks

Over here is my part of AZ it's mostly labeled flex fuel 51-83%. Where I go it consistently tests at e51 and now ethanol is supposed to get taxed more from what I've been hearing and will eventually have less than 10% in pump gas.

It's definitely not gonna be 85% in the winter months. It will be closer to 60% so I'll wait untill summer to get the car dialed in for E85. I'll spend the Winter months breaking in the engine and dialing in for 93 pump.

Wow! 51% isn't even close to E85... I'm planning on buying VP X85 or C85 for the track, but not sure what to tune for the street? I want to be able to run ethanol from the pump, but should I get something like an E60 street tune and mix at the pump as required??

There are stations that have 85 but there is a Facebook group for e85 and everyone tests and posts what the different stations are. For me e30 is plenty for stock motor. If I was fully built I'd be e85 all day.

Sorry again I'm no expert but you have almost as much negative correction as you have positive, esp on one cylinder your monitor. I'm not sure I would be happy at all with that. I know it can be dialed in to almost 0 as per my previous posts that's what I would be wanting to see even if it's only momentary. Just my 10 cents

Thanks! I'll try to locate the E85 Facebook group. Doing the NMRA racing season, we travel from Florida to Michigan, so this information will be valuable! I may just go with an E60 tune... Depending on what I find!
Thanks!!

All of the stations in my area (NE Oklahoma) that offer E85, consistently test at E70 year round. They are Kum and Go and Casey’s. You can download the GasBuddy app or a similar apps and see which stations in your area offer ethanol blends.

Didn't touch the car. But, read an interesting article, with information and tips on motor oil

Sorry I don't have a link, but it's worth the Google search!

^^^ How low-speed pre-ignition can damage your direct-injection turbo engine - Hagerty Media

[edit] I would add that I went to the Mobil 1 (what I use) website after reading this and apparently Mobil 1 meets all of the new specifications including GF-6 and their website indicated that all stock should have rolled over by summer of 2020, so anything you are buying today will be the newest version oil available. I'm sure that this is the case for any of the other major oil suppliers as well.

Gave her some fresh corn juice and ripped off a couple datalogs for e30 v1.2. The most negative ignition correction I had was -1 for a second on cylinder 3 and no knock through out the WOT pull from 3k to 6k in 5th again. I know the est HP and Torq isn't exact but it does show me the increases that are coming with each revision. Mornings temps have been pretty close and I do the pulls on the same stretch of roads each time.
