Am heading off on black Friday the 13th to the 3rd running of the well organized and run IMO Wondai sprints.

It is an app 3 hour drive towing my long suffering 2.3 TC JB Starion that like me is a little tired now but still quite strong with 350 HP at the tyres

.

I lost 30 hp >5k revs BUT gained100 hp @4k revs with the smaller GT3076R TS turbo so it is a bit more lively now.

Have also had a suspension tweak with 25mm RCA adjusters to the front and have installed fabricated rear RCA's that have lowered the outer joints 2 inches and that has made the car more responsive as well as less loose in the rear.

 

I am car 92 in a mixed class of 12 cars and will be happy if I finish midfield.

 

PS if any 4Gers are there please say hello :)

Well I can't recall an event with so many "incidents" as the barriers were in the same places as previous events right on the edge of the black stuff in all of the corners so it paid to be neat and tidy.

 

It rained Friday night so the track was damp before competition started but dried in time for the start so 2 dry days racing and it was hot on Sunday.

.

With the front and rear RCA's done with slightly revised alignment settings the car felt like it had more grip and it gave me confidence to push a little harder and ended up app 2 seconds quicker than my previous best time so I am happy with that.

 

Had a couple of competitors say that it got off the line well and it was fast down the straight so now I just have to get thru the chicanes a little better.

 

There was an impressively fast LA Lancer with a Honda 2 litre V tec motor.
