Matra at Bathurst there aren't too many sandtraps so I take the conservative route.... One of my mates last year who runs a 400bhp Mazda Rx3 is the opposite...... after this little off he went on to win the trophy race coming from last position

Love that one little bit of commentary in the middle there... Also, holy hell that was close to the wall!

Looks like the car un-weighted on that slight downhill just as he gave steering input... bet it was arse-clenching.
But then running a 400HP RX3 surely is!

Car was finally dynoed , didnt make the HP we wanted only 134 hp, not sure if it was a slipping clutch(gearbox input seal is leaking) or atmospheric conditions. We will be back to back test it against the brothers cars figures on the hub dyno we usually use when the clutch is fixed. We are heading to the track next week so will have to see what its like out there. Engine sounds sweet at 9 grand though

Only real power run sadly then the clutch was slipping

Car has finally hit the track, fixed the gearbox leak and changed the diff to a 4.11 for Bathurst next weekend . The car went well, missed a few shifts on the box due to the closeness of the shifts now, only really used 2,3,4 as the diff was too high. Brake upgrade seems good needs more rear though. The front l/h guard rubs so the guard needs to be trimmed for clearance, car seems to have a heap more sniff in a straightline, I couldnt really judge the upgrade of the wheels and tyres as the tyres were second hand and 4 yrs old, new tyres next week. The car has better turn in but suffered mid corner understeer and was very loose in the rear, also has a bit of a ecu interface fault on the crank angle sensor which limits it to 8500rpm.

Been testing rigging these cheap ones for the "movie shot" -- Wing arches, low mounts, side mounts. All the places you don't want to put an expensive camcorder
Decided a long time back for serious stuff to rig a mic near the exhaust and/or engine bay. NEVER sounds good otherwise

The Easter weekend race meet is over and what a meet , I knocked about 10secs off my PB from last year to a 2.49 in traffic, the SA guys were 1,2,3 in IP in over 2 litre and Rookey and myself were 1 & 2 in U2L in IP. We had heaps of track time and only had our last race cut short because of a BIG crash involving a WRX at Forrest Elbow.

Qualifying
I qualified 29th out of 45 cars with a 2.52.65
I was still working out lines and trying to get braver over the top
NATSOFT Race Result

Race 1
I got blown away by a WRX up mountain straight and diced with a RX 7 most of the race, it was a bit slow over the top but hosed me down the straights.
Got down to a flat to a flat 2.50, still plenty to find
NATSOFT Race Result

Race 2
I started well and was in a pack of cars consisting of a few late model v8, honda, rx7 and a Lotus Elise, was getting into a groove with cars of similar pace when the exhaust broke, stayed out for another lap but pitted just in case the rest fell off or was ripped off.
NATSOFT Race Result

Race 3
Started rear of grid in 44th and finished 26th, passed a heap of cars but couldn't really get a good lap time got down to a 2.49. The car has a mid low 40 in it with a clear track and cars of the same pace
NATSOFT Race Result

Race 4
I was meant to start in 26th but got put rear of grid again, the timing excel spreadsheet had a few bugs and put a few cars in their previous grid position. I was making may way through the field when the race was red flagged due to a big smash at Forrest elbow involving a WRX. I was a bit po about starting rear of field but it didn't really matter

The nephew was very happy as he got down to a 2.33 and was top 3 for the weekend

All in all a great weekend, no rain and no incidents by any of the SA guys, cant wait for next year.....FOSc is getting better and better
