my car starts first time everytime ive started drifting it now and when the car has been thrashed and is red hot it not turn over its as if the battery is flat ??
leave it to cool down and it turns over fast again and starts first time ??
battey is full charged ?
could it be starter sticking ?
or is it just that its hot ?

day to day driving i never have any probs ?

The connections to your starter are probably in need of a refresh.
but if it was that wouldnt it do it anytime not just when hot ?

i will make a heat sheald and do the connecters see if that sorts it but i not know till i go drifting again
