Dai had the edge in handling but the TSX was much faster on the oval and down the straights.
The TSX lost control and took Dai out of the first race. Since Dai missed a few races due to Formula Drift schedule conflicts he needed all the points he could get. This incident took him out of the points lead with one more race the next day.
Overnight we patched the Dog Car up the best we could and Dai was once again fast.
Dai had a hard battle with the TSX for a few laps. It was exciting, if Dai won, he would be the champion. If the TSX won that team would take the crown.
You can see the difference in handling right here! Dai ended up winning the race and the MPTCC championship. Dai would go on improving his grip driving and doing well in road racing in Time Attack, Endurance Road Racing and even GT racing.
The Dog Car’s final iteration has more aerodynamic refinements. The grill was closed off making it a bottom breather and greatly reducing drag. The side openings for the oil cooler and ram-air system were closed off by more than 50% to reduce drag and make the splitter more effective.
