I’m far from being an expert but I did run at Bathurst on the weekend for the first time and had a bag of fun.
My car runs a standard bore and stroke warm street motor and i used a 3.9 ratio Subi LSD diff. Best lap was a 2:52.5. I think the car could have gone a bit quicker up, down and across the top of the mountain if my balls were larger than they are.
from Harry’s GPS lap timer I Video’d most of my laps which are overlaid with speeds and sector times etc. for some reason I can’t upload it to YouTube. YouTube says invalid video, asset not readable (I am a dinosaur)
For my car, I found changing back to 2nd was slower than holding 3rd through the cutting and forest elbow.
I’ll see if I can’t upload the vid but in the meantime, I used 3rd for hell corner, reached 180 in 5th heading up mountain straight down to 3rd for griffins, a short stint in 4th then back down to 3rd for the cutting. Back in to 4th at Reid park for the top of the mountain doing between 130 - 150. (Speed through here is a direct relationship to size of balls) down to 3rd at Skyline holding it all the way down to and through forest elbow. Top speed of 213.8 on Conrod but wimped out on holding it flat through the kink (a few more laps and I might have done it) 3rd through the chase and Murray’s corner.
I had a great time driving the mountain and look forward to getting back there again sometime. I would recommend it to anyone that likes a little Adrenalin.
also had a great time with all the other like minded people and it was nice to put some faces to names.
Gordo, good to meet you on the weekend and, great job on taking and posting so many pics and vids for us all. I have enjoyed reminiscing already. Cheers Mate.
