    Jojo was the only one Approaching that at any decent speed anyway :p well done Jt! Impressive.

    Braking definitely required for camp though on the whole. If you're not braking for it, you're going to slow.

    Car is handling better than last year Nick, but couldn't make use of it due to an unknown power issue? Bit gutted, but it was still a good day out. Hope it's a cheap fix, will look into it when I have a chance!

    I'm well gutted, I could have cleared up if I went! Frenchman would have been the only competition and I've seen him try and drive fast and it always ends up on its roof lol

    Having just actually watched the video, that's epic!

    How did you learn to drive like that delivering Chinese in Birmingham Joe? That's a properly epic save, hats off. You are my hero.

    First of all, I just wanted to say I've not driven my car at full pelt/in anger with my current setup, especially since I only geo'd it last week, and took a few scenic corners I know of to see how it felt, and it's all good. I had Chris(rhubarb) as a passenger, and told him I'd do a warm up lap to get a feel of the car, but since I know this track, I semi attacked the first few turns and already know what the car had to give.

    Anyways, once I had cleared the bobbies chicane, I went for it, my original setup from last year allowed me to go maximum after this, and using the coloured cones on the track(braking point/turn in/apex) to full effect, as they work for my car. Heading towards camp corner, I braked just as usual in a straight line, going down the gears, then I turn and part throttle as I always do, but the back end let go, I felt the whole car sliding and going very sideways, so just applied opposite lock and mashed the throttle, waiting for the car to straighten up which it did! :cool: Once straightened up, I was just accelerating again as normal at full boost, then the power dropped, and I had no boost at all!(it's fixed now though)

    Reasons for the back end coming out? R32 ARB rear and standard front ARB? Rear tyres was possibly a bit wet? I had power/boost already when I started to make the turn, changing the car's balance, hence back end out?

    Who knows?

    Main thing is, it looked good, I'm happy to entertain, and I got off the track in one piece!

    And I will be back again for some more next year! :racer:

    I didn't learn anything Jardo, it's a natural skill I was born with, something you don't have! :laugh:
