Wow a couple of people having decent off-road excursions there!


Why do you have the boxes around the bonnet vents Richard?

To create negative air pressure and scavenge air up and out through the fents.
Only usefull if running a well fitted undertray that goes back to bellhousing.

Yes few offs in that, but lap times dont indicate any desperation. Also some very odd lines. Must remember it is just a lapdash, no racing!

To cut a long story short, that vent design completely solved a serious overheating problem. Jason is partly right but an undertray is not essential although the car has one now. Vents also help clear heat when the car stops after doing some laps.

Re the offs, it wars becuz I wars puttin pressuh on dem  :)

You got some very good photos on the day Matty. Thank you
Unfortunately due to over heating problems, I had to withdraw after the second run . From there things didn't improve and the trip home was one I wish to forget.
But I was surprised at the Drivers briefing when the track owners came out with a statement and I quote:Lakeside is the highest agerage speed circut in Australia , making reference to both  Bathurst and Phillip Island . I was waiting for howls of protest from any southerners but the room was silent . Must have been full of QLD'ers only.

Lap record time over actual distance, yes, it is the fastest average speed circuit in the country.
Doesnt make the joint any safer, as many are finding out.

Yeah was a good afternoon, I didn't arrive until about 2pm - geez Nev is quick ..... Pity that 350z cut your run short.


Again guys I know I asked Dave to circulate an email to all the guys that were there, but to make it public:

I appologise for cutting the last run short. Believe me it wasn't planned. Sorry guys.

Mike, better you bin the Z than the 1600, don't want to get those wheels marked!!!!!

Bad luck on that, you were a lucky boy. I've had that happen to me twice, once at the bus stop in 2000 and I thought the car was gone, basically both feet out, grab 2nd and drove away not touching anything and only me and my dry cleaner knowing the true colour of adrenalin, and the last time the back let go, we think from oil or water from the footage I have seen and I gave the wall a smack on drivers right just after the bridge taking off the spoiler, nosecone and bonnet. Got some nice phots out of that as my wall paper on the laptop now.

It's all good Mike, no ones judging you mate. Shit happens especially on the track.

If it makes you feel any better we are still ripping into Dusty about the 2010 LapZ... actually that probably wont make you feel any better ;)

I'm spewing still I couldn't make it but when the job pays for the cars you have to put the job first.

Matt, funny as it sounds I was kinda glad it wasn't in the 1600. The radiator etc. is a lot closer to the front and the polly carb bumper has a bit more give than the old mild steel fronts of the Datto and a lot easier to source replacements (of course I wouldn't be saying that is the car was writen off... I was a lucky boy!)

James, I know no one judges me, we all have incidents when we're pushing hard, but you still feel bad afterwards though. It doesn't really make me feel better about ripping into Dusty, though I will repair my damage before I pass the car on (if I do) so noone can sign my name to it :)

It would have been good to see you guys again, and on the track again, I did a PB 65.26 on the day. Not too bad for a stocko Z on street rubber.

d3c0y: all good mate, it's only as dangerous as your right foot makes it. Sometimes you just get it wrong :)

Mike
