  1. Bathurst in November will be my last run on 17" tyres so I'm a bit price sensitive having to buy a new set for only that event. With the Hankooks it looks like the price has gone up due to demand not to production cost, it's a bit annoying because it's always the club blokes looking for a bargain that first try out new tyres and so establish their reputation or not. Oh well, I'm going to try out a newbie and see how they go and keep quiet if they are good, stuff it
  2. miss take
  3. Good to see some input, there are quite a few tyres around described as semi slicks but which have road tyre type tread so that excludes them. Nitto NT01's have their fans as do the new R888's . .
  4. Geez, this thread needs a bump to keep up with what's happening on the semi slick club race scene. OK I'm bitching, a set of new Hankook 214 SOFT worked great at Challenge Bathurst 2016 but that was it, plenty of tread left but zero grip, wheelspin in top gear, no grip whatsoever at Morgan park a few months later. So I'm thinking mediums instead for this year's Challenge but the price has gone up of course no doubt as a result of their club popularity transferring to the propretend (TV exposure) lot. What was once a budget buy is now a greed grab in price, I'm looking elsewhere.
  5. Good to see the progress being made and some track time too. You got those GKTech dropped tie rod ends didn't you, how are they working and what's your opinion of the quality? I got a no brand set and am concerned about the strength of the through bolt part, have heard of them breaking too. When they are machined they should be rounded on the inside where the bolt changes diameter to prevent a stress riser, mine are not.
  6. No need for mechanics with my 2015 diesel Cherokee, well just to get serviced. Tows great, nice to drive, no problems.
  7. Bloody hell, we only need to tow a race car not tilt the world off it's axis It's a pity that Jeeps are currently persona non gratia, a friend of of mine has a Grand Cherokee petrol Mopar V8 that truly is one of the ultimate tow bitches, reasonable fuel economy too, 16 he talks about.
  8. Dan is wasting his talent at RB and he knows it, bloody Renault just can't match MB or Fez.
  9. Can't help with the bits but it sounds like you are up to something interesting, reducing the trail angle?
  10. Sensitive would be a better word, the closer the suspension gets to just right the more sensitive it becomes to damping adjustment. Or so I've found.
  11. Those alignments sound OK, 8.5 caster is a about right for a track car together with 3 to 3.5 negative camber. It may be a bit fussy with damper settings though.
  12. It's a right hand jiver unless the pics are back to front, I too love the colour.
  13. Not a S chassis but a bloke I know with a track 370Z got it down to a touch over 1,200kg, all stock panels and powertrain. The wiring alone was something like 50kg including air bags.
  14. Came 9th outright which is pretty sensational and won their class by almost 10 minutes, beat lots of P cars which is always good
  15. Targa Tasmania It's on, no Neesan interest? OK, check this Datsun out then.
