No 2nd chance in Macau

“At this Guia circuit Experience and skills are very important. It’s different from other tracks, Which are artificial race tracks.
You can still come back after you made a mistake, No second chance in Macau. Winning proves your ability. No fluke.
Some ask ‘why was I not fast on the last few laps?’ or ‘I was being chased down on the uphill sector?’ I say To win the race best lap is not important, no point being fast, but don’t see the checker flag. Harder you push, more risk and make mistakes. Simply said,
I was confident As long as I pass the first corner with no incident I was sure to control the race rhythm. That was my attitude. Lower pace on the uphill, no one can pass me, so I won’t risk it on the uphill. Everyone aims for Macau Grand Prix. This circuit is very difficult and filled with excitement. It’s the second most difficult circuit in the world. To me you have yet to prove yourself, if you have not won at Macau. Winning at this circuit, is a prove you’re a real winner” – Chou Keng Kuan, from Macau Fu Lei Loi Racing Team

Absolutely. That is the technique a lot of racers use on this course. It’s the same technique that Kazuo Shimizu used to win the 34th Macau GP in 1987.

The Cabin Civic and Trampio Civic make appearances in this videos:

Unlike other race courses, mistakes can not be made up at Macau. That’s what attracts me to this circuit, it’s the same race condition as street racing. Definitely a course I would like to drive on.

Merry Xmas Y’all!

I hope everyone got what they wanted. I’ll share mine:

Translation:

Main pipes 45Ο† β†’ 50Ο† β†’ 60Ο† / 4-2-1 By making the layout, it achieves both torque and power.
The flange part adopts 3D die casting manufacturing method to eliminate exhaust leakage due to strain.
By using SUS material improves durability and sound quality distinctive to V-TEC.
Mount exclusive stay, head flange gasket included.

For the record, these parts are all made by the same Osakan manufacture, it’s just they share three different company names.

The muffler really reminds me of the ES Tuning Race Muffler from back in the days, I remember it was called their “N1 Muffler.”

It also reminds me of an old school Eikoh! Muffler but with more of a rolled tip:

I’m curious how everything will sound all together. I’m debating if I want to place it in the normal area where the muffler originally hangs, or if I wanna do a center style like this:

But at that height, you gotta worry about ground clearance. But it’s not like I daily my EG anymore anyway… LOL!

Merry Christmas everybody! Stay safe, stay blessed! πŸ“ΏπŸ™πŸ“Ώ

That sound.

Based on a true story… Many years ago…

A man is driving down the road and his car breaks down near a monastery. He goes to the monastery, knocks on the door, and says, “My car broke down. Do you think I could stay the night?” The monks graciously accept him, feed him dinner, tow his car to the monastery and even fix it.

As the man tries to fall asleep, he hears a strange sound. A sound unlike anything he’s ever heard before. The sound is very peaceful and healing. He doesn’t sleep that night. Instead he stays up studying the sound. Measuring the rhythm… It’s almost as if he can measure the hertz as well…

The next morning, he asks the monks what the sound was, but they say, “We can’t tell you. You’re not a monk.” His car gets fixed and the man leaves. Years later, after never being able to forget that sound, the man goes back to the monastery and asks for the answer again. The monks reply, “We can’t tell you. You’re not a monk.” The man says, “If the only way I can find out what is making that beautiful sound is to become a monk, then please, make me a monk.” The monks reply, “You must travel the earth and tell us how many blades of grass there are and the exact number of grains of sand. When you find these answers, you will have become a monk.” The man sets about his task.

After years of searching, it is now present day. He returns and knocks on the door of the monastery. A monk answers. He is taken before a gathering of all the monks. “In my quest to find what makes that beautiful sound, I traveled the earth and have found what you asked for: By design, the world is in a state of perpetual change. Only the Universe knows what you ask. All a man can know is himself, and only then if he is honest and reflective and willing to strip away self deception.” The monks reply, “Congratulations. You have become a monk. We shall now show you the way to the mystery of the sacred sound.”

The monks lead the man to a wooden door, where the head monk says, “The sound is beyond that door.” The monks give him the key, and he opens the door. Behind the wooden door is another door made of stone. The man is given the key to the stone door and he opens it, only to find a door made of ruby. And so it went that he needed keys to doors of emerald, pearl and diamond. Finally, they come to a door made of solid gold. The sound has become very clear and definite. The monks say, “This is the last key to the last door.” His life’s wish is behind that door. With trembling hands, he unlocks the door, turns the knob, and slowly pushes the door open. Finally he is utterly amazed to discover the source of that peaceful sound… But, of course, I can’t tell you what it is because you’re not a monk.
