Time to Rest Right? Not if you’re ready to win!

If you’re like the rest of the racing community out in the world today. You really only have a limited amount of time to make the needed changes and get ready to test. With this in mind TWR Services would like offer some suggestions of items you need to add to the to-do list. Pull all of your ground connections off and inspect them for oxidation on both contact surfaces. Once they are cleaned up reinstall and tighten properly. Pull off the electrical connectors of your coil and check for oxidation. Once again clean and prep them if possible, if they look marginal replace them. Then reinstall both back the correct locations on the coil. Next pull all the connections off of the Racing Ignition box and inspect them for oxidation. Clean and replace as needed. Replace the Dist cap and rotor; don't bother with cleaning these items. Fresh is the better option here; you will be ready to fire up without the stalling and sputtering problem. Pull the battery out and give it a warm bath (No kidding) this will remove any possibility of surface oxidation. Which in turn gets rid of a trickle discharge problem some racers run into during the racing season.

Sparkplugs do performance fade with use!

Pull the sparkplugs out and put a fresh set in ready to go. This will save you the time later down the road when you’re ready to start testing. It happens every season; somebody gets in a hurry towards the start of the season. And in the mad rush to get things going never changes out last seasons sparkplugs. Just a thought.

Check that Ignition Coil

The Ignition coil is on the same rotation cycle as the sparkplug wires. If you have a 2 year old coil or older on the racing unit. You should consider replacing it; the coil has to work very hard under the hood. And after 2 years of service it is time to swap in a fresh bullet.

Check those Sparkplug wires

Take a look at the sparkplug wires if they are 2 years old or older. You need to take them out of the racing program and put them on the street car. The wires start to age very quickly after this point. So do your racing program a favor and consider replacing them.
