it’s about chasing a good lap time, and the package is really good for that. It definitely gives some of the higher-powered cars a run for their money, not so much in a straight line, but through the corners.
What times have you run in the car?
On the old engine I managed 1m 24s at Manfeild Autocourse, 1m 47s at Taupo Motorsport Park, and even came third overall in one summer series. Since the new heart went in I’ve only been back to Manfeild Autocourse, where I ran 1m 19s. There’s definitely more time in the car!
Those are very respectable runs. Anything you’re thinking of upgrading?
Eventually I’ll start squeezing more power out of the engine, or maybe upgrade it to something with a little more chirp. In the meantime I’ll just keep on pushing it at track days to try to cut those times down, until it either breaks, or gets quicker. We’ll see how it goes.
Cheers for the chat Andrew. Is there anyone you would like to thank?
