The Evo Garage Mugen DC5 race car has longed for this day, first time out after the upgrade to its suspension, mounts and tires. The old Öhlins came out in place for Mugen N1 coilovers. Alex race mounts were replaced with Hasport billet mounts using the super hard urethane inserts. After maxing out the capabilities of the Yokohama Advan A048, both of the DC5s are now using Hoosier R6 tires. Even though with a wonderful performance, target times were not met this month. Much anticipation will be expected from the Mugen DC5 after some fine-tuning next month.
Another track day, perhaps the last event at Pacific Raceways this year. This time around only one of the two DC5s attended. Already averaging 1min45sec at the July event, David had only one objective, to break 1min40sec… Screaming in all the corners, the Yokohama ADVAN A048s could not keep up with how the DC5 wanted to perform. Averaging 1min42sec, it is obvious with the no grip factor the DC5 can do better. But how much better? Can the 2 seconds be saved with full racing slicks? Possibly?
