Yeah but it is a U2l sports sedan with full slicks and about 800kgs, not a barge arse heavy XR

Since that day we have fitted the new diff which makes the car unbelievably more stable, 16x10" slicks and the next step is a new motor (5cyl :buttrock: ) that we have hopes of making in excess of 300Bhp with (while revving to approx 11000rpm :3gears::buttrock: )

Haven't run new slicks since mods so with newies hoping for a low 1:05, maybe even a high 1:04.

Interesting Day at Wakefield 19.12.09 for the last Circuit Club Day of the Year

Picked up the Car from a 'local' Work Shop at 7.00pm on Friday to find a 'Gremlin' had left the Car with 273RWK!

- A far cry from the standard 415RWK!!

Ran a best of 1 minute 10.3!

The interesting thing is, it would appear reasonable Lap times are not totally dependent on HP!

And now it's back to the Shop to have them find and fix my 'Gremlin'!

- It would appear it never ends!

Merry Christmas!

No argument there Spiro!

We both know about its Heart, but I just have to spend a little more time fine tuning its other bits!!

If I don't catch you before, Merry Christmas to you and yours!

Mate, I must say your car looked very impressive on the track. Circulating at a great rate of knots. What compound slicks are you running? It's amazing what a set of slicks will do for handling.

I went along to give my Falcon a shakedown. Been before in my rex, but never in the big girl.

I was in the Yellow XR6T, but only got one session in. Lot's of banging and rattling from the clutch the ruiner of my day. I suspect a loose flywheel. Will find out tomorrow when I drop the box.

Only managed ten laps, and only started to get confident with the tyres (street compound slicks) towards the end of the session. Managed a low 1:14 as I started to lean on it a bit. Few seconds left in the big girl though.

Wondered where you got to!

Running Hoosiers for the moment!

- The control Tyre on the Bianti Touring Cars!

- Tyres are ok, but not withour Suspension, Springs and Camber adjustments, etc, etc.

- Been working on it for a long time now!

Looking at Michelin full Slicks in the New Year.

You should come over and say G'day next time!

- We're a harmless bunch!

I hope you get a break with the Clutch and Fly Wheel....

Forgot to mention, you have to run a minimum of 3.5 degrees negative Camber on the front for Hoosiers!

- They recommend it and if you don't, you will have the Steel hanging out of the Shoulders in one Day!

- I put 4 on the front and 2 on the back and the whole thing is 'very' forgiving if you go in too hot!

We are shopping around for second hand Porsche Slicks for Day to Day Track Days.
