Congratulations, you are fastest around the creek, LOL. I am too scared to run there.

Any idea of your speeds down the straight? I am close to 200 at Wakefield, and the straight at SMP is longer and has a much higher entry speed.

Only by calculation. Was hitting rev limiter in 5th at the 100m brake marker for turn 1. That's 8000rpm, which works out to be nudging 220kmh. I'm hoping to get better at driving the thing and actually find 6th gear on that straight eventually.

I have a pair of 18x9.5 rims. I am waiting until I find a second pair of 18x10 or 10.5 lightweight rims (or a complete set) before looking at tyres. I will buy another set of semi slicks for the 17s at some stage though unless a cheap set of rims falls in my lap soon.

I was just googling some of my old lap times and this thread popped up.

Best I got was 1:06.7 according to racechono but Ben's beaten that in style without slicks :-)

This was it

Yeah been a while :-)

It was 277kw at the wheels on about 12psi from memory. Massive torque through the midrange too. The car is in Melbourne now and around 300kw after the engine was freshened up with new rings etc.

My Soarer has had 12mths off while I messed around with a little side project:
http://datsun1200.com/uploads/newbb/518_55a23bdd3761a.jpg

I sold the Datto a couple of weeks ago, and bought new tyres for the Soarer- changed from 245/40 Nitto NT01 to 235/40 Hankook Z221. Did Lakeside yesterday and smashed my PB by 1.5sec, from 61.3 to 59.8! Anything sub-60 is considered pretty quick and it's unheard of for an auto! lol The Soarer had lots of people scratching their heads yesterday - including me to be honest. I certainly didn't expect that much time from a set of tyres! Pretty happy with that for a normal street car with the most basic mods - FMIC, exhaust and coilovers. I still have a Kurts dump pipe sitting on the bench waiting to go on too :-) Not sure if that will be OK without some sort of piggyback though?

I'm pretty keen on coming down to Wakefield to get on the Soarer leaderboard - probably be last but who cares. I see Ben on top of the leaderboard is on the NT01 as well. All I can say mate, is get some Hankooks! They're bloody amazing!

I just got back from a trip down to Phillip Island for a sprint. Drove the Soarer 1950km down there all loaded up with tyres and stuff, had a ball driving the best track in the country and cruised back home. Best lap was a 1:52.95

Thanks Damien. Nice to meet you guys. I had a blast down there. Phillip Island was on the bucket list I suppose. Everytime I saw it on TV for MotoGP or V8 Supercars, I kept telling myself I have to drive it. Everyone talks about as the best track in the country, and it definitely lived up to that! Awesome track! I'll be back next year to try and go a bit faster. The GPS lap timer tells me I didn't get anywhere near the virtual best time... Too many laps with traffic and too many stuff ups in the slow corners, either out braking myself or trying to get on the power too soon.

It's about a 20hr drive from Brisbane the most direct way on the Newell Hwy. Less traffic out there too, and less ahem speed cameras/cops ;) Stopped overnight at Forbes.

I did another video up using the dashcam angle, with the GPS speed data overlayed:

Mallala yesterday: 1:16.68.

Kumho V70A semi slicks, very little coolant and steam coming out the bonnet. (Was testing to see if we had fixed an overheating issue - we hadn't)

We did a track day on the long circuit at Marulan today in the Mustang. My first time there and really enjoyed it.

Best time was a 45.55 in the first session when things were still cool.

In the second session I over-drove it and went slower.

The next few sessions were hot and couldn't get back into the 45s, but had consistent laps and great fun going hard with the new diff in it. Oh, and the 2mm of tread I had on the rear tyres on Friday seems to have disappeared too for some reason.

I know it can't really compare because it ain't a Soarer, but it is still a road registered car... And I did have a little goal of trying to beat Aaron's time there (sorry mate!). Unfortunately he doesn't get the right of reply though, as today was the last event on that circuit, with it closing for revamping and a new layout.

Andrew that's a great time around there. They had done some upgrades to the track in some corners so was a little faster when you went there :-) hell we do 49.1 in the cheap car challenge na sr20 nx coupe haha
But still don't think I'd get the 45 so you've done really well!
Be great to check out the new circuit it looks so much more smoother and well done!

Yeah can't wait to have a go at the new layout. By all accounts they've done a great job refurbishing the circuit.
