Nice photos Tim ..... I'm hoping to get to a track event soon. Was considering this one but didn't have enough time to schedule out some work commitments.

I know what you mean with the work. When I get a chance now, I take it!

I am doing Paul's 2wd shoot out on July 19.
T'was fantastic. My first run at QR in nearly four years & I feel much safer there than at Lakeside. Mind you, I did spin off through turn 1 at ~5000rpm in 3rd…
They've always got timing. Times should be up on the Natsoft website shortly. I think I was doing 1'04.1" on Clubman, 1'01.1" on Sprint and 1'27.6" on the National. Brakes pedal was starting to get soft on the National and I was getting a brake warning symbol & gong going off on the dash. Not sure what it was as all checked out ok later. I'll be looking to upgrade the fluid & pads I think.
I had an interesting comparison when the fastest guy on track in his E36 M3 race car came up behind me. I'd pull away on the straights under power and had to back right off the throttle to let him past. Different story with the E30 with the LS1 Chev in it though…
Have fun at the shootout. I'll be working in Malaysia

Thanks! I think there's more to come on the Sprint too. I was just working it out when they changed to the National. First pic above was on the Sprint track.

Three of Justin's 5 year old R888 semi's + 1 new front left (after breaking the old one). There's definitely a 60 & maybe a 59 in the car if I get it right. I think we need to chase each other to make this happen Vinney. A warmer track surface would also help a lot too.
Would love to run new slicks & a better brake setup one day and really see what the car could do...

That's impressive Tim. Agreed about running together to achieve faster times. Have a feeling some of my lines are still way off so would benefit me greatly following your lead. Think I will replace the rears shortly. Need to sort out my persistent limp issues first, hoping it's only the coil packs.

Vinney I think a Sub 60 ,s on QR sprint or lakeside is a bit like a 11 sec 1/4 for these cars. Do you know if it has been achieved yet ? ( I know 11,s have been done)

Coming from a Evo background I am impressed how quick these cars are on the track and how pleasant they are as a daily driver. I have done 55000 Kim's in a year with mine and still look forward to getting into it

Thats interesting. I've run 61 on street tyres but my goal is to run a sub 60 with more practice and meth. I'm sure it's easier said than done though as I think my driving could improve a lot. Agreed, I've done quite a few km's too but the car is exciting to drive on the street and track. It has a dual personality.

61 on street rubber is terrific. I am hoping for a 61 on my old DZ03,s on the 19th.

Good luck mate keen to see how you go. What is your current PB? The DCT is so slick. If it was offered in the 1M I would have traded up at the time. So easy to live with and perfect on the track.

Never mind, just checked the time attack site and you run a 62 second. That's quick! I'm sure you will get a 61 if the conditions are good, maybe faster.

Think I'll keep running street tyres. I'm leading B1 Class now. Sitting on 55 points with a 20 point lead. Will aim to run a 60 next time

[SYD] Wakefield 24th July

It's a Tuesday.

I'm planning on heading down with Pcock.

Just a regular speed off the streets, $150 or so.
