Certainly not you Jason! I only saw your car out on track one or twice but it was blooming quick that's for sure. Probably wasn't me understeering mega though, I was pretty careful all day as I didn't feel 100% confident with the brakes.I was there also @GrahamS .
Hopefully I wasn't one of the bell ends lol . Car really good out on track .
I remember seeing a blue Clio I undertook at the left hander at the bottom of the back straight after the chicane , not sure if it was yourself or the other blue Clio , but understeer was in motion and quite a lot of it lol .
I'll try and sort through the video , but my GoPro s**t itself and recorded up side down which was a bummer .
Took @Ant_Smiggy out in mine also and he enjoyed the ride so to speak.
You too matey, hopefully you can see your car in the video. I love the SEN, it's short but with a few good straights. I've sent a text around to see if anyone saw it, what kind of pump was it?
AP Racing Coilovers, they're really a fast road coilover but made by KW. Certainly not for pure track! Cars with ASTs feel hugely different to mine.What suspension are you running now ?
We had a little photo shoot at the end and we were all in those garages , I didn't see any pump .@GrahamS Thanks, one of these http://www.costco.co.uk/view/p/goodyear-12-volt-air-inflator-844753 we used it and it was on the metal bit behind everyone, looked at it just before leaving and thought "someones got the same as me", emptied the car last night and realised it was mine sat there *doh*
No worries at all Dave, hopefully I didn't scare him. I've got the go pro film of the session if you want me to send it over, would be no bother.Thanks for taking Sarah's Dad out @GrahamS, he was rather impressed with the revvy nature of the clio!! Not sure if he ever went out in any of my Trophys, so cheers for that :up:
I thought it was a pretty good day to be honest, barely anyone there initially, which meant that when the rain did come down in the afternoon, there was probably only 4/5 people out on track at any point, basically just us lot lol. Ill see if i can get some of my videos onto youtube later on, good to see the mini floating about on your one above - you probably got more footage of it than i did
No worries Graham , happy to help mate, Glad you like the ds1.11. Cadwell is awesome , cheers!Unfortunately the pads had been totally hammered by Brands and looked like they didn't have another day left. A quick message to @George@RTR_Parts saw some DS1.11s and Brembo HC UV on the way and, as always they turned up extremely fast in time for our drive up on Tuesday night.
I met @AlexW and @Sash at Cadwell bright and early to get the brakes on. Anyway, brakes are crazy good, really nice and progressive, less tendency to lock up than the RC8.
The fit is seriously good! Tom has a shell he mocks up the cage in so has mm perfect measurements of where the feet need to go! I can't pretend I wasn't super impressed by all the feet going in with such precision!That looks a bloody good fit,surprised to see them fit the mounting blocks without test fitting the cage !
You mean ability to fluke it! Before this track day I did 30 mins of prep on the clio! Is it a 4c? I'm inI'm always jealous of your car skills Graham! Wanna help me with my alfa.
Thanks matey. Comments like that are why I do these project threads and videos! Hopefully more frequent and more interesting videos on the horizonJust read this right the way through, brilliant progress. I also stumbled across your YouTube clips before seeing this thread, it's nice to read this and now watch the vids.
Unfortunately Tom is right. A bus crept up on me and had a little kiss with the side. I'm intending to have it repaired one day but can't see the money for that coming anytime soon!Just browsing through! Car looks good and videos look good, will give them a watch properly later.
What happened to the quarter panel? Tyre wall at a track?
don't you remember it was fighting for pole position on the last lap of a fierce race..nudge nudgeHe wishes! A bus jumped out at him when he came to get his cage fitted
Thanks matey, it's a shed but somehow keeps working! The filler neck is just one or two easily accessible screws from under the lid then it should pop out. Tank doesn't need to come out for that.Good to see more progress!
Jumping back a little, how easy was the fuel filler pipe to remove and refit?
It's a job I need to do as a preventive of rust.
Favourite thread on here, I want my Cup to go down a similar direction.
It's only taken me a little while in the past to swap it over but now it's more of a pain I'll probably just get a cat made up to go in between the two.ph, why do you swap the manifold every year? surely be easier to remake the rear section of the exhaust to take a 182 cat?
Mines no minter aesthetically either!Thanks matey, it's a shed but somehow keeps working! The filler neck is just one or two easily accessible screws from under the lid then it should pop out. Tank doesn't need to come out for that.
