Yep first is too short on the 13 inch wheels,  second is a bit long hence the high rpm but it works ok in such a light car.

Thanks Carl,  it has been a journey but the results are comming now...  I am a happy boy!

Excellent, great to see a rotary engined car getting such good results. Sincere congratulations, that's no mean achievement, and well done for all the effort you've put in   :)

With your result, and the fact that Peter Hewson it leading his Time Attack Club Class with his RX-8, plus Liam is doing well in the 750MC race series in his RX-8, things are beginning to look up for rotary power in UK competition. Hopefully e a good omen for Clive this year  :) :)

Are they running turbo rx8s or NA?

That launch control is great, can't beat a good bit of second gear tyre smoke, especially on slicks. Probably helped to protect any parts that could injure themselves from the tyre hooking properly.

I have a right mind to have a stern chat with Clive's car, about time that car gave him a break!

Yep,  I have put together a feature request for Adaptronic to make the launch control better...  Let's see if they bite!

So it should, stop pissing around with the tin top and get back to using the Westory in anger...  COME SPRINTING!  There is a July break so you could get everything sorted and join for Goodwood in August (you thought Combe was fast ;)...

They are both running NA, with weight stripping and suspension mods. Having seen Liam's video, he's clearly a very capable race driver. I haven't seen Peter drive, but he's used a solid engineering background and a lot of maths to tune the "ride frequencies" of his car.....it seesm to be working!

So here are the video's from the day...  Camera got fogged up for the two fastest runs boo!  Also if you want a laugh look at Bentley Timed 1 for how not to configure traction control!
