Looking at those pics, check out the notorious Datsun lift at speed. #22 the blue and white Z is not too bad, #71 white Z is terrible and #29 Fairlady is not great either. Compare them with the Porsches and note the contrast, everything else being equal the Porkers are going to be faster simply because they sit on the deck at speed and so gain kph's compared with the Datsuns. Probably helps their high speed handling and braking too.
I would love a SC S30, having a go at Porkers and other Euro stuff is great fun
On gear calc, I'm doing about 240 before I ease off, dab the brakes just to make sure I have something, and then slot back to fourth so i have motive drive through the turn 1 genlte right, yes it is a bit of a brick wall re frontal area, as we have discussed prior!
surprisingly the cars are not too 'floaty" but you do get the sensation of light steering, couple of times it twitched through T1, and a bit of steer correction is bneeded.
You'd love a Sc S30? buy my blue thing, it's for sale, but it would be more fun as a Tarmac car, as Rob Devenish is trying to covince me to set it up for that, and give Sc away.
Why do you think I love driving the T car, only 'cos I can, in the GroupS mob, so much fun, and I just tool around the track even if I have to play with the quick porkers and DeTomato's and Alfa GTV's and occaisional Z car.
The blue/White was Wayne Pott's, ( ex James Flett) it seemed to sell very quickly, at 30 or 35 k$, new owner has to get to grips with Sc racing but!
