Zeus @ Blyton

Postby jeffw » Mon Jun 11, 2018 4:51 am

Interesting day, had some issues (starter motor failed and then the paddle shift developed a mind of its own). First timed run turned out to be my fastest because of the paddle issues.

New GoPro Session 5 which doesn't seem to cope with the vibration very well.

First run I've done in the car since last October (2 sprints in one weekend) and first time I've run the car on my own. High idle is me trying to get some engine temp. 63.71 sec which is not too shoddy but not enough corner speed.

Ankle was a bit sore, mainly the walking round the paddock. Just nice to be out running the car.

623 bhp?!!! :shock: You're shitting me? Jesus H...

I had a brief drive in someone else's 230bhp turbo a few weeks ago and that scared the crap out of me - gawd knows what 600+ is like...

Jeff that looked not too shabby at all, well done. I like the vibration it adds to the drama :D

Working on that bit. Had to have the car bump started, hence the high rpm to get some oil temp before the run. Should have gone way faster in the rest of the runs but the paddle shift started playing up.
