NZ Performance Car - - Warrior Weekend -

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?
