it seems odd for it to set a new record around the ring, then its foiled by a few corners at castle combe circuit.
Freddie was driving it at the ring. N24 and VLN driver with thousands of laps under his belt. That could make a big difference.
The Scoob was one of the Forge demo cars on the day, taking people out for passenger rides all day long. It was a little odd, he was trying, and wouldn't let me past when he perhaps should have done as he was holding us up over the course of a lap, following him under braking we were having to hold back considerably, but then he got a better corner exit due to his 4wd.
Still, plenty of work to do on the A3 to get it to it's best, but a fun few sessions as a shake down for the new turbo.
I know Nick's is not on full chat, as he has stated he runs around 18psi on actuator pressure, giving around 310bhp or so
It was a completely different driver in the scooby and wasn't the same one who set the ring lap record, hence the considerable difference in driver skill and it struggling around a circuit which is far simpler compared to the ring.
I'm not getting into a dispute or argument about it, this is Nicks RR thread, but I was being quoted on something I didn't say and didn't intentionally mean, when it seems what I had said was being taken out of context.
Nick's car is a weapon, proven on many occasion, and he nailed the scoob incredibly well, but my point stands is the scoob was not being driven to even half of it's potential, proven in the video from it's poor driving, and was a night and day comparison in what it has just recently achieved in it's time around the ring.
Apologies if it has offended anyone, but then quote me on what I say rather than what I don't between the lines :)
Welcome to ASN mate.
Prawns thread has lasted so well because people respect his work and don't assumptively post bull**** about what another variable car or driver could, would or should do.
It's a home built Audi A3 track car, there are no comparable cars to compare it against. So we can never compare apple's to apple's. All we can do is say that we like our apples.
Not saying that you have or are, but if everybody would pipe down and take the information they are given and asked questions based on what they are told rather than assume then this thread will continue to progress and serve.
More people need to listen with the intent of understanding, where most listen to respond.
All good banter. Just an innocent remark, not meant to mean anything really, just a possibility that has to be considered.??? It's all in good fun.:racer:
Let's change the subject. Is it raining where you are.???
Thunderstorms in Croatia.:cold:
Bloody miserable here in Southampton.
Weather isn't much better either :laugh:
speaking to a guy who works at the revolution garage
the car was runnning around 350 due to a fault on route to the track that day would normally run 550bhp
so they ran a base map only
so it goes to show just how god nicks car is as the revolution motorsport car has had huge huge money thrown at it i would estimate 100k !!! was running slicks also ;-)
i would say if we put 100k into nicks car he would wipe the floor with him easily !!
It's know as doing a Tony in the powerboat world. Always something wrong with his engine when he was beaten.
only 6-8secs a lap slower than the combe saloons on road tryes ;)
Thing is on a public day like that where it has massive traffic and basically a free for all you cant really go on full attack. If it were a proper track day or even at ADI where theres less traffic you could go all out on full power and give it max beans.
there are a few combe saloons in the 1m18s with your power but on road tyres still.
my old jetta 2ltr 16v on tbodies @ 200bhp ish was 1m22s laps many years ago
bet it rains tho.. lol and all the quattro boys laugh
hoping it does'nt mind you
Every time I drive this car on track, IT'S DIFFERENT.:scared2:
oooooooooooo I know... :P
ahhh.. pennys dropped
Hybrid? Tell meeee! I feel left out :(
you're on fb gops are'nt you?
