I couldn't get the power down out of the Corners Spiro!

- And I lost a bit of Top end speed where I felt I needed every bit I could lay my Hands on!

At 4000rpm,the slighest throttle would blow the Tyres away.

We ditched the 4:10's and Con put in a much more Linear Tune!

- This did the job!

I put the big GTR34 Rims on and fitted them with Hoosier Semi Slicks at the same time!

- 10.3 inches on the Deck at the rear and 9.1 inches on the front!

- I also increased the front Camber from 2.5 degrees to the current 4 degrees!

- Hoosier recommend a minimum of 3 degrees!

The total package, in combination with the refined Tune, did the job Spiro.

Before I did this, I had some Gun Drivers at Eastern Creek have a go to. Just in case it was just a Driver issue!

- Namely me!

They all agreed it was fun, but no good for the Track!

that's interesting Nigel, maybe a live axle with 11.5 to 12.5inch would be your next step at the rear, that should hold the power right! (Alot of rubber there)

I priced a Live Axle setup a couple of Years ago Spiro!

- It was a bargain at $15k to 20k......!

I won't be doing it!

Had a whole lot of stuff fixed on the Car last Week and am confident we will get a Track Day on Thursday with 'full power' at last!

- With the more progressive Tune!

The boys ran it up last Thursday and it went up to 420rwk without blinking!

- On a stinking hot, humid Day!

I still haven't had a trouble free session at the Creek and am looking forward to a better run 17.02.10 at the Circuit Club Twilight session!

Went to Wakefield today with the Porsche guys!

Lots of fun Jokes about Taxi's an stuff, but ran 1 Min 9's all Day with a PB of 1 min 9.3!

Still got some Fuel surge onto the straight and out of the Fish Hook slowing the ol Barge down, but my Tuner reckons he knows what's happening and wil fix!

I will get some fresh Tyres and give the 8's a crack next time!

- Destroyed the old Steer Tyres ( Steel hanging out of them) and the Rear's have been heat cycled too many times!

It was a good fun Day!

Mr Wall's new Porche cycled around at .58 seconds all Day in 'practice'!

There's a fair bit more left in it yet Spiro!

A bit of tweaking by Con and lot of catch up by me, may yet get the best out of it!

A little Birdy in Warwick told me your a hard Driver mate!

- Had to go up a Week ago for a little TLC!
