Because need degree first.

Hi guys n gals,

Have not been active on the forums for some time (and will continue to do so after this blog entry).

In short, not planning any further no limits nights, skidpans or even cruises for that matter.

If I can I will try and get some Brembo's on the front of the car and also add an OMP WRC seat but even that is not looking likely (though these will have to be sorted eventually so think of them as on the to-do list).

In a few...

Because part-time racecar.

I'll get straight to the point. I want to get these in the future after I have built up enough seat time around Barbs and actually start to push hard for quicker times.

- STI Group N set (these will be done very very soon)

- 17 x 8.5 XXR 530's/527's to fit wider semi-slicks (thinking 245's). XXR's because they dont break the budget too much and they get the job done.

- Whatever semi slicks I can get my hands on

- Second set of pads (thinking...

No Limits - 12th December: Getting quicker.

Posted 12-12-2012 at 10:32 PM by monkeee

No Limits was a wet one tonight.

Started out dry with a damp track (had been raining through the day) and then got progressively worse.

I managed a 65.3 in the wet on KU36's no less haha (compared to a 64.2 in bone dry conditions last time). No chance for long track as No Limits don't allow it in wet conditions (I am glad they dont haha).

I also managed a spin around the last corner...was not so fun, more frustrating as I felt I was on a good lap (guess...

Piggy y u no start!?!?!

Posted 30-11-2012 at 03:18 PM by monkeee

So the piggy is hard-parked and shall be for a little while until I can get Jim @ BlueStar to sort out whats wrong with it.

Car basically started stuttering at idle and on acceleration a few days ago. Usually this is just a dirty MAF or bad batch of fuel or even a faulty fuel filter.

So fresh tank of fuel....problem still there. I cleaned the MAF with CRC MAF cleaner...problems till there.

Only barely got it home from my local shops today (2 minutes...

No Limits -15th November. Need Practice.

Posted 21-11-2012 at 08:50 PM by monkeee

So I hit up No Limits for the first time.

The best times I could manage from 2 runs of the long track and 1 run of the short track were:

Short: 64.2
Long: 75.9

Neither is really that great. In fact imo they were very slow but I guess it's a start for me to gauge where I am at and improve from here.

A mistake I made before hand was not even checking tyre pressure...100% confident they were too high given I did not pump them myself....
