Well done Tim and Sam.

Glad you enjoyed it and all went well. Are there any results anywhere?? I am guessing not from what the Targa South west web site said.

Thanks Carl, and there are no results, just the times we received on our time cards.

Last run through Pemby, sorry about the camera angle. (hope the link works first time this time)

That and ignore the poor launch.

Wow, some rough roads! You change the suspension much from where you normally have it?
Well done to both of you for getting out there.

Yep the roads were rough, the straight after the second right hander had a dip in it where another road passes through about a 1/3 of the way up. This run was the only run I accelerated through it, and wont again.

The last left hander was also a big bump, that doesn't show in the recce to us. There was also a large amount of gravel in the braking zone just before just for fun, which wasn't there the week before.

Suspension wise, the ride height was done to have as much spring travel as I could have without lowering the ride much. From previous I ended up lowering the spring collars by 15mm, then raising them by 5mm, after having it on a hoist as the front springs were a bit loose. This didn't how when doing one side at a time due to the roll bar pushing the arms up. (the 15mm drop saw the car lower 5mm, and the 5mm raise saw the ride height return to previous level.)

Rebound wise i left them alone, close to 50% hard/soft. This also produced the best ride I've ever had in the car when we checked a few of the stages on Friday. Shocks are DMS40s

1 right looked really nice, 3 left not so nice, but it gets the air time.

Doug - love the commitment in the second one, just need Ken Block horse power at the wheels to make it stick (or un-stick, such as it is).

All the photos I took during the event are below. From the end of Big Brook Dam 3. Probably the least number of photos I have taken at any event.
