Well I have worked there for 4 months a few yr's ago, abit we only did the track between 8 & 9 in the morning but we used the full track and not the public entrance which is allot better.
I have got rusty since thou so I;d but myself around CRF's time.
I even did 9 mins in my CTi without any problems and thats a std 1.9 205


CRF450's 8min 31 lap

I managed a 8min 50 in the Xsara so I'd say anything around that is reasonable. As said tho an 8min lap with a standard engine would be awesome.

Have you any plans to go this year Miles?

Are you talking about a standard engined 6 there Miles? A shade over 8 minutes would be f-ing quick with a standard engine I think.


Are you kidding? With Miles Driving 8 minutes in a standard 6 is more than do-able!


Is Miles Really that good??


Yes

    Out of all those things listed mate i would be sure to get the cambelt done Yes If that goes on you then you will not have a great trip No

    Concentrate on getting the car sorted so it will do the trip there and back and once its ready to roll start adding the performance parts Thumbs up

    If you want to go to no anti-roll bar at all, really you need to be on spherical bearings all around and alter the geometry so you can still run a softish front end without the trouble of sudden roll understeer from a bump, or snap oversteer on the way into something slippy, which is a bugger to catch as it's when you're least expecting it, probably not an issue on UK tracks though, although maybe on airfields.


    Yes it is. I've run for about a year with no front ARB. Roll understeer is an issue and I have been feeling like the front end is also too high. The eibachs are way too soft so it is time to compromise again and run an ARB. It is meant to be a fast B road car and at the moment it feels a bit too wobbly and underdamped, with compromising initial turn-in understeer.

    Grip out of corners is huge though, especially in the wet. Noticed it most at Pugfest this year when all the other GTi-6s were spinning up coming out of one corner when I had it completely planted with no wheelspin. Same tyres as some too.

    That's the problem, you either have to set all the car up for it or leave it on.

    If its your first time around the ring, i wouldnt get too hung up on modifying the car. If your belt is due then i would be more inclined to get that done 1st. If your hoping to do a lot of laps (which you should be) id recommend fitting a front mounted oil cooler. Next on the list should be a set of semi-slicks, although if your going out in march, theres a higher than normal chance it will be p*ssing down.
    Once youve done 50+ laps sub-9mins in a standard 6 should be easily achievable.

    Thanks Steve, preparation has been going into the car to make it more track focused for a while now. I do have a 13 row Mocal oil cooler which keeps temps. down nice and sensible. Brakes are Brembo (406 jobbies) and the interior is partially stripped. So far iI have only tackled Brands with the car so It will be a much harder test of both me and the car at the Ring, but I'm looking foreward to the challenge. Ninja

    Subframe went on yesterday, and suffice it to say that I made it difficult for myself by forgetting to fit the ARB at the same time as the subframe. I thought I would be able to feed it in afterward No Doh Cry then after getting it in, bolting it all up and getting the car off the stands a test drive revealed a knocking coming from under the car.
    Well you might have guessed it, yep I put the ARB in upside down! The cranked part that is there to provide clearance was hitting the exhaust downpipe!

    By this time I was very tired and in no mood to be going under the car again and this is where the really good mistakes started happening! When we dropped the frame again to turn over the ARB to its correct orientation, the gear selector ball popped off the linkage (unseen by me at this time) then after putting the car back down on the ground, no gears! Shock

    By now near total sense of humour failiure had kicked in, and what makes it worse is knowing it's all your own fault! So, car up off thre ground again, presuade on the selector, then back down, another testdrive, knocking over bumps. Arrrgh! Iv'e left the f*cking droplinks finger tight from earlier! Up again, spanner the droplinks and back down again, done. I'm not even going to start about the siezed subframe bolt that sheared off in the bracket earlier on in the evening that had to be drilled out and stud-extracted. I wish I had'nt said to Chris "Ah, its ok this job won't take long!" Twat!
    Massive thanks to Chris for staying on till midnight to help me get it all back together.

    Smile

    Worryingly, I'll be let loose at the Ring in four months!LOL

    Remember seeing little icicles like that the other week whilst under the car.

    Decided there and then that any other work can wait!

    Good on you for sticking at it, coming along nicely.

    P.S. I'm the one behind the camera by the way and my good friend Chris is in no way responsible!
