it looks like im going slow in that video *sniff*

I guess that\'s what 120-130km/hr on the front straight looks like. Maybe if we had Turbos like some of the other guys... we could hit 180km/hr before turn 1 :D

Ha ha seriously, comming out of the last turn in 2nd doesn\'t help either! We need a supercharger like that bimmer.

Wicked vid by the way! The intake on hard gas does sound good though!

Here are some pics of my tires
As you can see the fronts look pretty bad! but well worth it!

anyone get pics of my chewed up tires? lol

nice vid......

how did your brakes hold up?

07-04-2005, 04:55 PM
The most I did was 4 laps at once. The brakes never felt soft, ever! The rotors are almost 12\", big brakes lots of stopping power;)

The track day was great fun! My tires started to melt after 5-6 laps in a row but they seemed to hold up better than whodilly\'s stockers. The brakes held up suprisingly well - no fade at all after many laps of hard braking.

I think the main problem, power aside (think S14, Scooby, and supercharged Bimmer!) with our cars is understeer and body roll - the front slides a bit earlier than I would\'ve liked, but I guess that\'s a inherent problem with a front-heavy FWD setup. I wonder how the RSXs fared in the corners - they were lapping a LOT quicker than us.

The maximum I could get up to was 145km/h on the long staight (at the back) before I had to start braking for the turn into the chicane. Ya...we need a turbo - like that black S14.

Taking turn 1 at 130km/h was fun. :hoho

The RSX\'s were tearin it up! Especially the blue one with the race tires. In a few of the turns I would slide to to the outside and they would just duck inside. And on the straight they could power by.

Ahhh...yes that evil blue RSX! It was keeping up with the 350Zs and that green M3. I wonder what it had under the hood...

So your car finally saw redline, autoexe? :)

EDIT: Changed the wording.
