Fun At Barbagallo Raceway

No Limits All Street Car Events 7/12/06

I thought i would just let you guys know of the good night had by all at the No Limits All Street Car Events 7/12/06 and the great job the boys are doing down there. If you haven't had a run at one of these events your missing out, one the chance to push your ride to the limit in a safe and legal evironment, two a chance to see some very nice rides of all shapes and sizes (996 turbo, M3 ,GTR's ,WRX's & Evo's etc), third and not least the chance to learn the right lines and technics to go fast and believe you me it makes a hugh difference.

Well this was my second run on the Barbagallo circuit so my knowledge of the track is limited, but after a few runs around the long ciruit in the afternoon light thanks to day light saving, we turned on the lights and got down to business on the short circuit. I when there with a plan i want to run under a minute as i was told a good street car and good time is just under a minute(under minute = fast car) and after a few points of the boys i managed to achieve my goal and ran a best for the night of a 58.12sec lap :(


the pic is of my ride looking very track pigish with different rimes front and back bit of long story but basicall i bought a set of rimes for track use (front ones pictured) but when i went to fit tyres to them one was split (not happy :) )and had to borrow a pair for the back for the event thanks Rory

Ah geez Pete - that was you??

I should have come and said hello! I was down there watching a couple of mates (Porsche, WRX and the HSV club guys).

You were looking nice a quick down the front straight. We noted the late breaking at the end of the front straight. :(

Yeah the front straight braking was the only one i think i had down pat (good shadow line as marker) and yeah feel free to come say hi. The Porsche turned up the whick at the end (very quick car) I need to put some time into suspension as running very straight setup and i felt there was a number of place it could good alot quicker. The instructors very pretty happy with my line so i'm getting there slowly and they all seem to like the straight line speed the R had even on minium boost (14psi). Everyone down there were very friendly.

Hey Pete,

Great Time well Done :(

Looked like there was some pretty fast cars down there that night!, They seem to be getting quicker with every meeting.

Are you still running the Federals? (595RS's?)

Heres a bit of (crap) video of mine from its last outing.


And I agree everyone should give this event a go at least once, its reletively cheap, you learn a lot about your car and your driving and is a lot of fun :)

    • Your stuff look much better than the original stuff I used on my tri-y headers, which didn't survive the swap, that did work OK though, but currently the headers are only ceramic coating, which, while it is meant to be the bees knees, it really only reduces temps by "not alot" and is more for protecting the mild steel pipes The new stuff is meant to maintain an "air gap" which "apparently" helps the insulation LOL In other news I'm taking it into Autotech next week for them to have a look at the RaceTCS, the spot where I want it, and the program "thingie" that is on my lap top computa which you would know as it is basically the same thing as your Racelogic  I'm really keen to get this fitted  
    • OK, a couple of questions arise. Are you suggesting that you want to swap to the S2 ECU so that you can Nistune it? Because....none of the R33 ECUs can be Nistuned. What would an ATESSA controller do to help? You have no ATESSA. Beyond that, the S1 and S2 ECU pinouts are nearly identical, as far as I can remember. A quick look around on SAU yields the following for S1. As I said, almost all of it is identical. I think there might be a few changes around the AFM and the ECCS relay, not much else. There's not functionally anything particularly different between a manual and auto ECU pinout. Can run a manual engine on an auto ECU quite trivially, for example.
    • Hey guys Was recently replacing the water pump and timing belt. Came across one of the washers for the timing gear and balancer were bent. Just wondering how that would of happened
