Shout-out to Nachofriend for 24HoL success!
« on: Jan 27, 2018, 06:43:18 am »
24 Hours of Lemons race report for Sonoma, CA, in Dec 2017:

At 5:54 in the video, Nachofriend of our forum gets the "Judge's Choice" award, which I think is awarded for just generally having your act together, having your car ready, and racing clean (maybe?).  Way to go!

Follow-up commentary in the video: 3 V8-powered RA6x Celicas in the field, 2 with Toyota engines, 1 with a Ford!  I remember 2 of those teams raced last year's as well.  "Heroic Fix" award to one of the 1UZ-powered Celicas (see video).

Those 1uz’s needed a dry sump or extra baffles. Oil starvation is a real thing.
