I've had yet another great day at the track and I managed to come home with three trophies :yes: and hubby received one.

Take a lap with me in the GTR

Thank you to the SAU'ers who came to say hi today, it was great to catch up and meet some more people :blink:

PS I tried the camera strapped to the seat, it vibrated too badly, so I youtubed the helmet cam version again. Managed to stop the clunking noise - I attached some gaff tape to the batteries as they were clunking in the housing, ever so slightly, but enough to cause a loud clunk.

There were three GTR's entered in the SV category and they came 1st, 2nd and 3rd - Mark (hubby), Dereck and meeeeeee, then followed (if I remember rightly) an EVO 6? a WRX and I thought there was another. Apart from the first three, I can't remember the order of the rest of the category.

I came third in the Type 1/2 over 3001cc category with the GTST and then Fastest Lady. IT WAS FUN!

When they release the results I'll post in more detail. I had around 3-4 PB's today, even with the GTST so I'm happy as a pig in mud atm.

If there's a small car track you've just done it. Surprised the EVO didn't win it. Congrats

Cool man. I'm gonna enter mine next time.

Next Hillclimb is Saturday 01 September (Saturdays are not common).

Helpful stuff

Memberships are due this time of the year... so if you join, you get to June 2008. You can download the Entry Forms and Supp Regs from the website and pay online/direct deposit into their bank account. You can join CAMS on the day at the club (confirm this is still possible with the secretary). Entries should be paid and emailed in before the day (usually Wed/Thur before the event) or cost $20 more and risk missing out if they have a full field.

You need - Approved helmet, 100% cotton clothing from ankles to neck/wrists, small fire extinguisher with metal bracket (on sale at Super Cheap atm for $19), blue triangle to identify battery location i.e on bonnet, a piece of gaff over the positive terminal on your battery.

Thats all I can think of off the top of my head. Not much required for a fun time.

I'm here to help if anyone has any questions.

Cheers

Michele

Anthony they are great photos. The motion/movement backgrounds came out well. I'd love a hi-res copy if its not too much trouble.

It was terrific to catch up with you today, we look forward to seeing you at the next climb :yes:

hacvng fanged my datto around that track quite a few times bring back memories watching that vid.

last corner on the bottem of the hill makes MAD sideways :D

it really is a small car track but even more suited to small cars is the wakefield hillclimb track. you HAVE to have awesome suspension to do any good on it.

The Wakefield hillclimb track is sooo tight its almost no fun at all LOL good for karts i imagine.

I had an absolute ball yesterday at Fairbairn - is there a cure for motorsport addiction? If so... is it called bankruptcy?

    • This goes over my head haha. Can you change the ceramic turbine to a steel one for better reliability?
    • Ah right, I do remember hearing a while back about that balancing thing that you just mentioned. I assumed I could rebuild it and then just get the shop to balance it (until i realised there's no rebuild kit). My turbo is fine but I am running higher boost I believe so just incase the time comes the reason I'd rather rebuild it, is to save at least $1,000 on tuning it, especially as I'm not trying to make huge power.
    • See my last post in this thread. Mixing and matching 26 cranks and rods and Neos causing wrinkles that you need to stay on top of.  
    • Boost rag. Blocked cat. Shitty lifters. Cam timing wrong. CAS in the wrong spot somehow. Cursed by a wandering gypsie, built on a pet cemetary, etc.
    • There is no "rebuild" of the standard core, with its ceramic turbine. Any "rebuild" is actually a "recore". The original Hitachi BB core is actually quite large (ie long). The distance between the comp housing and the turbine housing is large. I got an OP6 highflow from Tao. The BB core he uses is tiny by comparison. The turbine housing sits in the same spot (it has to, because it is bolted to the exhaust manifold, and so that and the dump are all in the same place. But the comp housing moves backwards in the engine bay because of the shorter centre section, and so you need to mod your inlet pipe (by any of a number of different methods) and the water and oil hoses need some changes too.
