11 years but she has signed off
« on: May 28, 2018, 11:55:16 PM »
Short day!! This was the only session on track and I think I had already chipped the apex seal at this point. I was still outgunning that porsche but he was on my arse every braking zone. (censored) those porsches can stop well with a decent driver.  Anyhoo last one for a while.

Cheers Jon,  yes i agree and I'm impressed it lasted so well. Compression pre failure was in the 4s so it was expected but it was running so well I was hoping to get the summer in first
