well for those that didnt come u missed out on a great day at the track...

heres a couple of vids of CEF-ZLA going around the track at the hand of NZD1 driver Jarius during the first heats to get into the top 16... bloody awesome effort considering this was the only time he had ever been in my car

right click and save as - this is Jairus's second pass... first time he was even in the car so he didnt exactly have much time to prac in it to get used to it.

right click and save as - 3rd pass... mmmmmmmm

Yeah he was doing some fulming for TV Un Zud 4.

It was a killer, after the first run he had with the Onevia it was one "win" each so we re-ran it. Then when he was following the Onevia he did a big fast entry into the last corner at about double the speed of the front car so if he hadn't stop drifting he would have hit the car in front. So unfortunately he lost becasue of that.

But he was one of the three fastest guys on the day with his entry speed. Also he was one of the nicest guys you will meet. Anyway, apart from burnt little patches where I missed with sunscreen on my arms it was good.

Also two drivers were unhappy about decisions, so we will have to find out exactly what happened.

yeah but from what i was told in breifing the onevia should have been imitating him but instead went in a lot hotter cause he wasnt doing that last corner in one motion... so technically he caused that clash himself... but none the less he was damn good (the guy in the onevia) and yeah hes a top bloke Jairus... got a long real well.

he gave me card to keep in touch... im going to check the D1NZ schedule for 2005 and try and head back for a round.

    • Does this count as a time trial as well? I got all gold in the master super licence (1 lap time trial) and received a McLaren MP4/4 for my trouble.  If anyone else has done this, did you ride the wall right around the first long right hander at Lake Louise snow track to get gold? I couldn't do it any other way... best I could do without riding the was was within 2 tenths of the gold time.
    • I definitely get the low power, sporty car to drive to smash gears but not be doing eleventy million miles an hour! It makes all the normal drives fun!   Rev match tune sounds like the funs! I didn't know the NC had a DBW throttle!   As for me, still have the Skyline, it still has the Barra in it. It's been pushed to the side of the workshop at the moment. Pretty much waiting on me finishing the wiring, and dropping new fuel lines in. Got myself an ACDC Tig end of last year so been teaching myself TIG welding to build a few things for the Skyline. The missus wrote off her GTB liberty at the end of last year, and got it back on salvage rights stupid cheap. It's also still registered, so will mean easier for me to take to the track already done most of the panel damage, just playing "clear the workshop" to make space to pull the motor and box out, fix some oil leaks, replace the clutch, and replace a few minor broken things.  Also got a Lathe at the start of the year, which is adding to the annoyance of no space, which is another reason I'm trying to build things to get more space, to get the Lathe back in a final home for it. It's a BIG lathe, can turn a 355mm diameter, and 1metre between centres... Got it at a steal! So between it and the TIG and old MIG welder, I'll be fabbing some fun little shit up But we've had a lot of shit stuff happening at home, so it's slow going getting things done. But one step at a time!
    • I love Catalunya.  Got a 1:54.632. The AMG is a hoot.
    • I hadn't got that far, my main worry was the connection to the actual calipers themselves. I'm just using new (ish) stock brake lines in the stock setup. I've just had a stud welded to the knuckle that is a little lower than the original stud (so my knuckles have two studs each side) to not have it be stretched so far in previous BBK setups, so the "block" (in the second picture) mounts a little lower for me and I hope I don't need to change anything. I may have even changed the connection to the calipers in the past and have since forgotten I did that. I may not have. Guess how I'm gonna find out. Source: hopium
    • It's more so I'm using the 1x piece line from HEL that goes from the body to the caliper. There's no middle block/mount like the HFM ones or the GKtech ones. There are certain angles/suspension compression where the line actually slightly contacts the ARB. Below of how mine sit (not my photo): How I want it:
