Conversely, cold temperatures can cause the pressure to drop considerably. KW Motorsports dampers are designed to run relatively low canister pressures so the effect is not that great but it is something that should be monitored.
The PE Engineering pedal box has titanium hardware for light weight and even though it is just 7.7 pounds, is also very stiff and rigid. The balance bar on the PE box worked very smoothly with no bind and little backlash in the cable adjustment which made brake bias adjustments quick, precise and easy.
Eimer Engineering built a foot platform and dead pedal assembly for the pedals and took out the stock Honda floor hump which was relatively easy fabrication to mount the center seat. The center seat used the stock JDM Honda steering rack and the steering shaft used two U-joints to move the shaft to the center of the car.
The car ran on new Prototype Titan 7 wheels in 18x 9.5. The wheels are a new brand of forged and light weight wheels which will be available sometime early next year. The game changing thing about Titan 7 wheels is the price which will be in line with some lower cost cast wheels. Stay tuned for more information about these wheels.
The car ran on soft compound Yokohama racing slicks in 250/650-18. The slicks exhibited good wear even though they were soft compound.
Here Chris Eimer switches the rear brake pads for the new Hawk Blue parts. At the same time the brake system was rebled with fresh fluid in anticipation of the higher temperatures that the new high torque pads would create.
Dai reported that the new pads helped a lot and reduced the amount of pedal pressure that needed to apply which made it easier to modulate the brakes and brake harder and later.
