If I get the rebuild done in time I could be there, be handy for a shake down before Marham.

Not yet, think it maybe to do with not having VSS, cant communicate with T5, talking with Karl we think T5 is not seeing road speed so is just using 1st gear boost limit?
Will get it sorted before next one, one way or another.

Right - with T5 and no speed signal at all, it's worth removing the 1st and 2nd gear boost limits just in case it's confused.

Any way you feed in a speed signal?

Just for Kev https://youtu.be/6rKaFXQi2dw another to follow.
Front suspension needs to be stiffer, absolutely having a blast with this car, apart from the fuel pump last week its been so much fun, 3 track days in last 6 weeks.

Cant recall being overtaken by a Megane? overtook one or two.
The Civic has about 380.
Will be all ready for Knockhill, have done 3 trackdays in last 6 weeks and hopefully will do a few more before the trip up north.
The more Saabs the better.

Enjoyed the videos I must get back to Donnington.

Was that the first time out with the splitter?

Last time I was at Donington there was some questionable driving by a would be formula 1 driver in a gt3, quite a few people reported him but he was allowed to continue. Seems to me the guy in Seat should have been pulled in at the very least for a chat, running over the chevrons and pit lane line and didn't look like the civic had invited him to pass as that as per usual track day rules.

See you at Knockhill in September fingers crossed it is dry or it will be a day of red flag stoppages. I suspect I will have done a few days at Knockhill before then :D

2nd time with the spiltter, was out previous Monday with Circuit days and the driving standards was awful, last week was with Javelin and in general the driving standards where very good, Just an Aston that was very quick in a straight line but had at least 7 cars behind him for at least 3 laps before I pitted.
If you can organise it to be dry that would be good, hopefully no snow.

How can he drive that CTR with that chuffin' dangly thing on the mirror? :argh:

The 9-3 leans a bit when it lifts that inside rear wheel but it certainly digs in well on the slicks :cool:

And the number of people braking in the middle of Craner... :loco:
