Mission Test and Tune results (May 3rd)

The team arrived to a busy scene at Mission Raceway park this past Friday. With the recent improvement in the weather it seemed that every racer in the province came to this event! There was along wait time to get into the track and the staging lanes were absolutely congested! Because of this the team was only able to secure 3 test runs before the end of the race day.

Our team drivers, Eric and Nicole were able to display impressive reaction times despite their relative inexperience on the track! The car was able to register 1/4 mile run time in the low 13 second mark! This is a vast improvement of our 15 second average time of last season.

Way to go AESS Drag Racing Team!

Ashcroft Test and Tune Overview

The Agassiz Secondary Drag Racing Team was at Eagle Motorplex for a weekend test and tune. The team arrived in Ashcroft on the morning of April 27th 2013 and was welcomed with gusting 80kph winds. The winds were severe enough to close the Fraser canyon en route to the track as well as the track itself!

After completely rebuilding every aspect of the car over thew winter there were a few bugs that were uncovered during the test and tune weekend. The pit crew was put to the test to ensure the car could perform at its very best.

During this test and tune we:

  • Repaired loose rocker arm studs
  • Re-torqued the torque converter bolts
  • Repaired an ignition system short

Although these fixes prevented the team from completing as many runs as possible, we are now confident going to our next race in Mission!
