It’s been 6 months since the Worlds. I have mostly spent it in America. I just went to China for a couple of weeks in November.
This trip my goal was to get fast. I wanted to be able to match the fastest lap times. I didn’t expect to win yet, but I wanted to be able to do the same lap times at least. I’ll write about that in another post.
2016 was the first year that my company was at a point where I could with a good conscience take time and focus on my driving. Even so, after Cavalieri spent one day with me at the track, and saw the work I did after getting home, he sincerely questioned “How do you do it? You shouldn’t have time to do anything!” It’s true, it’s pretty hectic, But I chose this over a family, a home, a “normal” life. And I’m willing to get up at 8, and go to bed at 2, and work all that time. I do many fulltime jobs, but I do it because I love it, and I want to achieve epic shit.
That’s why when things go wrong, it REALLY pisses me off. There are two issues I don’t have an explanation for, and I am reaching out to you for answers. Please reply if you know what causes this:
1. The pipe makes a motor flame out on throttle. It is guaranteed to happen, but it only happens after a certain time, and the motor is fine up until that point. Then you punch it and it flames out.
2. A tank does the same thing.
What actually happens? Why does a pipe, or a faulty tank suddenly start flaming out a motor? Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
