Good and Bad   12 comments

Another track day down in Taupo on sunday.

Adam had an awesome time, tandeming the whole day with Hugo and Mark. Was awesome to watch, can’t wait for some video.

My car had problems with the drivers side axle binding, as we put in a r200 diff before the trackday (had smaller r180 before). Raising the back about 4cm seemed to fix that, but this ment, with the shortened lower arm’s and the camber arms as short as they could go, I had around 0 degrees camber. The car just wouldn’t slide with brand new 235’s and all the rear grip, so I spent most the day clutch kicking round looking silly trying to get it to slide. Oh well, Adams going to shorten some axles for me, so the next track day will be awesome 5 deep tandems hopefully.
