The race writeup will be out shortly, but, I thought I'd post this now.....no only did Asif complete the entire weekend (with some teething pains), but he took a race win on Sunday! Rookie driver, first race weekend with a very new car, and he came away with a win!

Congrats Asif! It was awesome seeing the car on track!

my winning strategy (being the only car in your class to finish) is not going to hold up long term. need to come up with some other approach... :)

I need to say a big THANK YOU to you Adam and Derek, Daniel, Mike and Ron. I wouldn't have been able to get through the weekend without all the help, advice, tools, etc. thanks everyone!

I've got a video up of Sunday's "race" (which includes my spin going up the hill to turn 2). unfortunately my battery ran out so I didn't get the whole race...

hey guys, hoping someone on here has an answer for my latest drama... my power steering rack is leaking at the center crossover tube (don't know if that's the right name). see the picture. this is a flared tube with a flare nut and fluid is leaking past the flare and coming out the hole in the flare nut. so, how do I fix this the flare does not seem damaged in any way. I was wondering if there are any flare to AN adapters? maybe I could ditch this hard line and switch it to a -3 or -4 braided line? I'd only need about a 14" braided line to make the connection.

When I replumbed all the power steering hard lines in my Mustang with braided I had some slight leaks at the fittings that I was able to fix. I used Loctite 545 Hydraulic Thread Sealant. It is available on amazon. Fairly expensive but it worked for me. Granted it wasnt on one of those crossover tube fittings but its worth a shot.

I haven't fixed it yet but I have a plan. I got 9/16 -18 (o-ring) to -6 fittings for the rack. next, a friend is going to pick up fittings and hose for me to make my own line. the fittings/hose are rated for 2250psi and are what the dirt modified guys use to plumb their power racks. Tuesday night I'll build the line and test it out. I also picked up the locktite hydraulic sealant you mentioned JD.

posted an update on my blog: http://asifnyc.com/?p=1284
