Would love to see you race.  And in Brands Hatch...

Power is nothing without control. Weight is enemy of performance, handling and braking.

Clive glad to see you are making more good progress and hope this bodes well for 2019.  looked at seeing if I could pop up to CC on 23/2 but unfortunately already booked to go to Race Retro that day.  Hopefully May will work out.

That won't work Clive; it's a local path to a file on your computer's desktop, not to a file on the internet  ;)

It's a PDF file though, so you should be able to attach it to a post here, as it should be on your PC desktop :icon_thumleft:

PS Dates for Brands and Snetterton in my diary - I should be able to make some of these at least  :)

Really looking forward to seeing how much of a difference this last Dyno session has made at Castle Coombe next week in readiness for the coming race season.

With the boost now controlled through the Adaptronic ECU the car now finally holds boost, instead of bleeding off 1/3 of its boost  and 100 BHP plus while travelling down the straights !

You will now see on one sheet that the boost is held just about to its Max, plus I can also turn the feed off going to the ECU and let the turbo see just spring pressure.

You will see the difference is 100 BHP which means I can get the car off the grid on low boost then switch to high boost, this also means I have a soft setting for the wet  :great:

That is looking better than just good Clive :13: All the best for the coming season, if last years results with a less than a perfectly running turbo/ECU are anything to go by then you should be in for a good year. :great: 

I need a track day!

Me too but alas it's not to be unfortunately :(. Wish all track day/racers a great season this coming year. :icon_thumright:
Finance dictated it had to go 13 months ago,  after 14 years in an RX8 regretted ever since.

Yes, thankyou, but I not sure where to put them yet as they are a bit big.  Don't worry, the original "wired by boosted" stickers are still on the rear pillars  :great:
