    so finally got this junk on the track.

    allow me to start by saying that I'm pretty chuffed considering I have not driven hot laps on a track for about 7 years? and this was my first time on this track and first time to even drive the car hard.. and despite having to baby it I managed a good time (I think)



    stayed in goulburn the night before so we could have an early start..


    quick check of the brake bolts and a brake bleed






    did a few easy laps to warm tyres etc. gave it a very small squirt and got black flagged haha. Noise limit for the day was 90DB and I was at 103DB. racecars amirite????

    nws mate stick a can with a rag in it



    car felt shit as I left pits (obvs would) didnt even make it one whole warm up lap before...



    tried rubber silicon pointing away from the mic - didnt get picked up by cam but warden told me still too loud and if I gave it a proper hit I'd get pinged again

    so tried to find next step



    safety first amirite



    'went into town to an exhaust shop where old mate put another hotdog on







    did a few easy laps cause I just waned to get a feel of the car anyway. marshall must have felt bad for me so he said just go for it and if he gets in trouble then he will pull me in.

    gave it a bit more of a squeeze. still cruising down main straight and past camera.




    managed a 1:10:550 whilst babying it past the camera and the damn shifter not going into 4th while downshifting for the 2nd turn. lol I dont like the shifter thats in it. I'll deal with that in the future.

    over all I'm happy with the car. I reckon once I sort out exhaust (I was still 97.5db so couldnt really fang it) and fine tune my line a bit more I'll get it lower. I have a gut feeling 1:08 would be pretty easy peasy. but as above, considering first time out on this track and first time out in this car. I'm pretty well pleased.


    met up with the other guys at hjs before heading down... nek minnit see this

    Louder than the old blue junk?

    Would split can open...flattened it then bolted between exhaust flange & punched a few holes in it (lightweight ftw)
    an easy fix is get a mate to drive in front of you at 60 then 80 then 100 and mark in on your speedo with some liquid paper.

    Fried ricer for sure LoveB, solid 1st outing but sounds like ya need to do a bit more prep work before heading out again. And an EG like that should be doing 5s.......

    Just need to do exhaust so I can stay on it without upsetting the marshall and having to be in 5th at about 3k rpm from mid straight to end of turn 2 hahahah.
    also might get rid of fastlane shifter.


    Adam Casmiri did 1:04 in kiets B20 eg. But then again, I am no adam casmiri hahaha

    Great work, that's a decent crack for your first go!! Would be a barrel of fun.

    Really makes you respect how well developed & driven front running IPRA cars are. The under 2 litre record is Jordan Cox in his old man's Civic @ 1:05.1999 (12/4/15), all steel and glass, bugger all aero.

    *that's not meant to be a crack either. I'm just continually amazed at the times some people can pump out.

    yeah definitely. would have loved to have driven the car during its various stages of getting to where its at but we deal with what weve got hahahaha.


    I reckon theres definitely heaps more room in it. just a matter of getting used to the car and getting used to the little niggles when driving it hard. but im defs happy with it.

    Sounds nice at the rally sprint, the MCM guys should use the audio as a tease in the next video. Im sure they could take 10 seconds of the audio and sync it to a thrown to the cutting room floor of in cam footage from the mini.

    fitted the C's racing shifter and got rid of the shithouse fastlane shifter. feels heaps better but im pretty sure 4th gear synco is KO'd already.



    also sent car to kustom kraft fab to quiet down exhaust. really only added a muffler but hopefully that gets me under 95 anyway.

    also fitted plates lol




    couldnt get Project MU HC+ in time so decided to try intima type D's.
    got the passengers side on then found that the pad retainer bolts on the drivers side is rounded. FAIL so decided to just reuse the HC+ cause theres still about 4mm on them really.

    and lastly I'm fairly sure my water temp sensor is cactus cause from cold start it thinks im overheating



    gonna get car retuned on 98 at some point and put some kelford cams in.

    'Cos it got tailpipe brah'

    Maybe check wire unplugged or earthed out for temp sender.

    Night pic looks like gokart track

    issa street car lol


    got out to wakefield again with shane (mr punnany)

    left 4am with my co pilot adamant she had to sleep upside down with her leg on the wheel lol





    touch down goulburn



    sik ef




    few laps out and 4th was really KO. couldnt even find 4th. we;ve had problems with B series boxes using motul FF so decided to just drop the oil and put standard honda MTF in.



    atleast I found where 4th gear went



    was still getting picked up by the damned camera so had to baby it a bit still



    altho shanes echo and a standard black vitz got pinged too so i dont know how much i trust it

    but pretty happy considering lack of proper 4th gear and going back from r compounds to street tyres and still bettering the time



    pinged again for being louder



    i think their damned mic pics up tyre noise too
    random pics cause pics r kool









    reeling em in lol



    nek minit





    pack up time







    overall happy to have ended up 6th out of 30.




    everyone above me had R compounds or full slicks too.

    Looks good, love that ef.

    Still think you should run a truck muffler across the top of the diffuser, then point the tip away from the pit wall.
