Well I forgot my lap timer. So didn't bother staying all day.

Would have stayed to help some of the others but I put my freshly repaired back out again last night and it is killing me. Happy to help out next time though.

Here is a pic of josh's e30 on the way down, spent the morning on the skid pan and got really bored, went round as a passenger in Ollies car and wow 4WD is a completely different feel to RWD.

edit - 10 points to the first person who spots the illegal part in this photo

Was a sweet day. Managed a 1.21 which I was pretty happy with considering my brakes did absoultly nothing.

You all left early and missed the Starlet roll in the skid pan.

Was loading the trailer up so didnt' get a chance. The guy was allright. Wasn't wearing a helmet so was a little bit flustered etc. Wasn't exactly high speed.

I know why that happened ... his right rear tire was under inflated .. saw that on an earlier session it was just gripping and sledging. Folding the tire nearly 45 degrees

Yeah thats what I thought might have happened. There was also wet/dry patches which probably didnt help. It was pretty tame really, the kid seemed more gutted that his $700 car had a crushed roof more than anything.

Did you car end up feel stronger by the end of the day ?

Also I think a trip to gavins for a retune would be in order after youve run it in.

Nice one Jack, 4 seconds is a huge improvement. Does that mean your now doing a 1:32?

Yea. It was the session where i was having a little scrap with the moro e30. Was fun cause through the corners i would make a gap then on the straights he made it up and that happened for 4 laps then i went straight at the sweeper =D

Loving it. Yesterday was awesome cause instead of just lapping round I was having fun with other cars =D

Can't wait for the dyno tune!

Yeah did open up a whole lot more. Still didn't rev it past 6k so a bit more power and a bit less time to be made.

Yeah will take it around there... but $.

Felt pretty cool passing that Holden even though he was pretty slow to everyone through the corners/under brakes.

post-5250-1299996228.jpg

Onto him again in the next session =D
