I can`t seem to find a link?
Cheers Arran, lots to improve but got to start somewhere. Trying to find a good recipe for interesting content at the moment.Nice videos Graham!
Can't wait to try it out Thanks for subscribing matey, part of a small club at the momentThe bump steer correction kit looks ace!
Awesome photos throughout the thread, and I've subscribed on youtube as well :up:
It was very entertaining, felt like it came from no where! The other one is @Martin. drifting round clear ways we were both getting used to the vastly different handling characteristics of the cars after fitting the roll centre kit. Will probably play with the rear ARB after fitting the ASTs! Can’t wait.Nice spin at 1:30 and a near one from the sliver Clio at 1:03 :grin: Oversteer or just a bit of slippy track? Just wondering if you could counter it by adjusting rear suspension or arb or similar?
Cheers dude! I’m trying my best to work out what people enjoy watching and also what’s manageable to film on the day! Martin’s Dad got the fly bys and did a top job. Had thought of that and think they would have to go on a separate channel unless I can find a way of stopping notifications when they go up. The raw track videos would be super easy and no extra effort to put up because no editing would be required.Really loving these vids, I think you've got a good balance between in car and and other track cars/fly bys etc. Proper good.
I think you could get away with doing 2 vids per track day, the ones your currently doing, to entertain the masses, then I think you could add a link in for the purists - pure full in car vids.
Does your car have an LSD?

No LSD yet but certainly a big ticket item on the list. There is a very long term plan to get one but with good suspension I should be spinning up the inside wheel less...hopefully.
Yeah it’s 100% needed but £2k that will definitely be going on the house for a while. I've been desperate for a gripper for some time but would definitely want to be trailering the car around if I got one making it an even more expensive mod! Suspension changes really are making a difference at the moment though and with the ASTs it should see me pretty happy for a few more years. The spin I had was the inner wheel locking up when the curb dipped away.I thought you didn't have an LSD, but thought I'd ask, as I can see that inside wheel spinning when it's lifting.
An LSD would completely transform the car, especially on your over steer, you can just power out of it and not loose much momentum. An LSD would be my first 'go to' mod after having one fitted myself. Unreal difference. I had a Wavetrac - but as your more track oriented, a plated one you'd probably prefer for more aggression.
Cheers boi! Let me know what would make it betterGreat Video.
Thanks mate. I really want to make sure I do videos which are all about cheap fun track days that so many of us too. I find laps of footage boring too. I would happily put up "Hot laps" so to speak for people to watch but would like it to be separate from the more entertainment based videos! Lots of plans I'd like to do some interview videos talking to people about their track cars, how they got into etc.I've always like your track videos as they aren't just 15 minutes of continuous footage which I, personally, find boring.
That is extremely useful feedback and actually confirms a lot of the things I am already desperate to do. We did try to get a load of footage from Martins car but the spot meter being off on the gopro rendered a lot of the footage un-usable unfortunately. The biggest problem I have with making the videos is time to make good quality content on a day like Brands Hatch without compromising the period I get out on track. Every single moment of the day I had the camera in my hand taking photos and videos or was repairing something. Having the right equipment is definitely key though and without question a couple more gopros are in order to get multiple concurrent sequences. Bit of a shame my current go pro has just given up the ghost!TBH I copied your style when doing my Cadwell video, I basically did a couple of laps in one video but from made from different laps if thats makes sense! I also think incorporating the following in a video would be good:
I also think getting footage from different cars would be good, especially if it shows your car.
- Loading the car
- Journey to the track
- Drive home
- Footage from different angels, forwards, backwards, facing you, etc, etc.
The only thing I don't like about your vids is the font & colour but that is personal preference.
I also enjoyed your video fitting your roll centre correction, so more videos along these lines would be good even if its just servicing. Although I know these are easier said than done, I was out working on my car for a few hours yesterday and the last thing I would want to do would be to video it!
I do look forward future videos. :up:
There was an issue with the rollers so whilst the paper says 212bhp it’s of course not possible without throttle bodies or a little snail under the bonnet! I assume it’s the same as when I went to Surrey rolling road which was 196 bhp and 170 lbft.
Thanks Eddy! It’s difficult to find the time to fit it all in but hope you enjoy what we postAwesome thread mate, subscribed and now following on Instagram! (Y)
Was just thinking the same having read the thread.Graham, been meaning to ask everytime I see yours and Martin's pics.... who takes your pics on track? They always look great.
I replied to you on your youtube comment buddy I've just taken them off today to replace them but they've served me very well for a couple of years and can't fault them that much. Perfect for driving to and from trackdays but a little too soft for my very enthusiastic driving! They're made by KW.How do you find the AP coilovers bud?
The ones of the car actually on track are usually the official trackday photography and hence they're taken on a beast of a camera with an incredible lens! The rest of the photos are ones we've taken.Graham, been meaning to ask everytime I see yours and Martin's pics.... who takes your pics on track? They always look great.
I wish I could claim them as mine! Zoom lens is a bit out of my budget at the moment but maybe I'll get one at some point in the future.Was just thinking the same having read the thread.
Also great read, and nice attitude towards cars, learning and evolving it, and of course tracking it.
Hoping to get my cup back up and running again and over to Brands soon - it's been sitting idle too long!
Good stuff, best way to learn. I enjoy the building as much as the driving tbh.Cheers matey! I much prefer to give it ago myself than pay someone and have learnt a hell of a lot along the way
Can't beat Brands, so lucky to have it locally.

Ah sorry mate hasnt popped up in my notifications aha thanks bud. I ordered some BC dr’s but got royaly messed about so cancelled the order and looking for an alternative lol.
Croydon gangster? :tongueout:I think I'm in the same neck of the woods as Martin.
I think Graham may actually be selling the APs. When I drove his car on track I actually thought they felt pretty decent. I was quite surprised to be honest.@Raceface_13
I've done Javelin track days and always found them to be ok, no worse than MSVT ones in my experience. What was so bad about it? I'm sure if it was raining, the photographer deserves a bit of slack. Would you have stood out there in the rain taking pictures lol.
Shame it was skittish but that's what happens when you make the car more serious I suppose. A car set-up to be fast in the dry won't necessarily work in the wet unfortunately. Looks great though. Can't imagine changing the sump will be much fun!
Sorry chaps I've only just seen these replies. Guess it's a bit late to reply now the summer's over!
