At least you know what you have to do to beat him on the final run :smthumbup

His car is very light.

Light doesn't = fast here.

As this man said, I can see more than a few names I'd love to jump in with.

Starting with the very kind KenX who's taking me up to the event to spectate.

I'll bring my HD camcorder, so if anyone wants some in car vids let me know and we'll set the thing up in your car :smthumbup

Anyone else able to offer passenger rides in exchange for teas / coffees or whatever....?

It's not a hi tec set up by any means, but it works and is stable - tripod, an a load of giant zipties :lol: Looks Heath Robinson, but hasn't let me down yet :D

I'm also available for any spannering assistance anyone needs - simple jobs only though, I'm not a fan of engine swaps, hence my latest one taking 6 months so far :crackup:

Just rolling up is fine. Don't need anything else. Set of class legal tyres on board, a few tools to swap them and a lid to cover up yer noggin. Check yer oil, water and tyre presurres and off ya go.

If yer car can't manage 16 or so runs then it would last long on the road anyway:)

12-08-2011, 08:01
Cool... I will b using the tyres already on car as I haven't got a spare set yet but understand the little traction and only 16 runs won't be too brutal on the life of them.

I have my wheels set at a torque setting of 105nm... Is that about right? And what tyre pressure is best? Thanks guys

Not sure on the torque setting, but the tyre pressure is something you fathom during practice.

Trial and error will find the best pressure for your car/tyres.

I'll give you a hand with it on the day if you like.

How did you miss the McDonalds? It shares the same car park ;) :) I think there is a car rental place next to it too.

It is relatively new though, I can remember them building it a few years back.

Apparently the curry is nice there, although I've never been myself. It might not be wise though if you're suffering with the nerves as it is :crackup:
