Well back from Wakefield. The day was good fun... except my tyres are so f*cked I could not get any power down at all... so my best time was 1.18.00 (which sux, considering that's 3seconds slower than in the ITR ... grrrrr )
I also destroyed my rear pads. Nothing left... and I mean NOTHING. Scraping metal on metal Hoping to get some Ferodo2500s there tomorrow. Good day, but dissapointed with the outcome.
i envy u guys having the balls to track ur cars, sounds like its alot of fun
the closest id go would prob a deca style event, and even then id have the carbra on :doh:
are the project mu pads any good? or is everyone running ferodos? (i had ferodos on my Alfa at one stage but they were very aggressive and chewed my new discs up) Are the stock pads overheating too quickly?
I did a 1:15.05 with Naishou (Adam) in the car AND a shot gearbox in my ITR (3rd synchros were gone... that was on my 2nd gear box before I had the final rebuild). I had worn out RE540 tyres at the time... I am talking about after 10 track days worn out!
The brakes actually felt fine, until the drive back to SYdnye... when we hit traffic on the M5, there was this screeching sound from the back.... and Serge and I looked at each other and sighed "Ah ****". I should be getting a new set of Ferodos put in at nismo_pete's place in Rushcutters Bay after lunch.
I think this is the last track day I will do before spending some $ on new R spec tyres.
David, you are right, because it was so slippery, I had to concentrate on being smooth and not jerk the car around too much, because every little correction in the streering sets the car off in oversteer (or understeer in 1 corner). It was a learning experience.
Also interesting fact, Serge (some of you may remember my mate at teh Winton day) got to do about 25 laps in my car there too. His first time on a track - got 1:18.70 as best time. So either I suck, or the car was at it's limit at the 1:18 mark. I probably suck tho
