Cleaning out the car and taking out the baby seat to get ready for tomorrow morning :)

 

Weather's looking a lot better than earlier - high 20's sounds better than high 30's :)

 

Should be a great day - fingers crossed we all have a clean one.

Awesome, awesome day.

 

Clean, fantastic day for us all.

 

Need more traction and more skill (probably in the reverse order)

 

Red H.S.V.'s had their own club - other colour H.S.V.'s had the second one - rest of us had fun ;)

2.05 - we chose the wrong group (slow) - there were just too many cars to get clean laps in without being held up through sections.

 

I even went out 1st to try and ensure a clear track, but there were still cars coming out of the pits when I made it round to the start line (putting me at the tail of the slower cars who decided to hang back and go out last)

 

I think I went a bit too firm on my rear suspension - was struggling for traction in the later sessions (after I firmed it up) and put it down to the track/tyres getting warmer - thinking back I think the ride may have been a tad too tight.

 

Will be going through video tonight (hopefully) to try and find some decent footage.

ahhh it is ringing a bell now.

I was previously told by Dan that Brett suggested running 4 clicks at the front and 3 clicks at the back for Street duties.

When heading out to the track, that 6 clicks at the front and rear would be best.

@Rab what settings did you have set?

Yeah, I went a couple of clicks from max - probably too high. I didn't think of it til the drive home and the rear wanted to skip over some bumps.

Brakes were fantastic. I kept gaining confidence in them throughout the day. Really need to see how much further I can push them - definitely some time to be picked up there :)

 

I reckon I'll go with one of the trainers next time I do the Island. Get some proper pointers and remove any bad habits before they develop.

so how many times did you end up in the dashboard with your face in the windscreen?

BTW with settings that hard, you do burnouts instead of corner well.

Good for drifting yo.
