    Haha, ok Dave! Will do just for you :)

    Daily is blinged up permanently, shiney black stretched tyres and as low
    And wide as I can safely get it!

    Track car is a fair bit higher, as it does handle better raised a tad.

    Don't think there's any pics of the daily in this thread, black road car above is Liams :)

    Just for you Dane:

    YouTube - Audi a3 nurburgring 08:40 BTG

    Fairly clear lap, until that civic race car held
    Me up, I had to hold back for him all the way from brunchen 2 until the finish. Also, due to an epic schoolboy error, this lap was done with 50 (yes-fifty) psi in the tyres, hence the sliding and general lack of grip!

    I dropped them to 30psi hot on Sunday, and corner speeds were much higher (10-15mph more through flugplatz and sx) bit the traffic was too heavy for a quick lap. Managed another 08:40 on the softer tyres but with loads of traffic and a yellow flag or 2

    How do you get the gps stuff on you lap video mate?

    Great lap though mate looks nice and clear. You nearly got side swiped at 3:11!

    That civic really should have moved over for you but he was probably on a timed lap too. The van was going well at the end of that lap too.

    Great stuff I love it

    Looks like it Dave. I just searched "Harry's Lap timer" and there it is. £3.49 though!

    Only 110mph through Foxhole, you big girl!

    I remember the first time I went flat-out through there, thought I was gunna die but never looked back :icon_thumright:

    The GPS lags going down into the foxhole, I saw 120 before a comfort lift at the bottom, but 110 on the other side is about right.

    I'm fine with the idea of taking it flat, bit how the **** do you get straight enough to safely brake from 130 before the AF complex?

    3:11 was a bit iffy, I overcooked it a bit passing that focus, and with the super hard tyres it just wanted to slide! What you don't see in the vid is the focus actually indicated right for me to pass, before running wide himself!

    You've got to be so careful on that track. If you'd clipped the grass you'd have been in a whole world of sh!t!

    It's a good job you did have 50psi in your tyres as it helped you understeer wide of the focus ;)

    Hahaha, understeer? I wish. The bloody thing just wanted to over steer everywhere! Much better with the tyres let down though.

    I know what you mean about being careful though, it's a bugger of you're not prepared
    For it!

    Oh yeah I forgot you had an ARB like a scaffold pole!

    It's the other drivers you have to be wary of.
