i'll be in the noob group, car is now on the hoist getting aligned... Gave them the specs that i wanted so hopefully they see the adjustable suspension arms and dont try to use the cam bolts haha

 

the guys who drove it on the hoist had the biggest smile on his face when he got out of the seat haha

I popped in to fit some wheels up and showed him the adjustable arms, couldn't touch the rear end because I the front wheels offset the beams couldn't line up so couldn't get an accurate reading

yeah thats what i was told... I had the old 17's ready aswell if they had told me i wouldve swapped it around. Apperently the got the rear as close to 0 as they could tho. steering feels heaps better tho. Took it for a spin in work carpark. Apart from people coming to have a sus it felt good... Apart from the gaurds grabbing haha

Did you grab the camber arms out of dans? If so when I aligned dans they were kinda dodge in that they didn't have a locking nut and had been welded for some reason. I'd be weary on having them fully adjusted out without a locking nut could work loose or flog the thread out.

It seems to be taking longer to pressurize though so might have to double check the hoses.

yeah it drifts and no i cant drift haha

 

may aswell do the write up now and will add photos tonigh

so picked the trailer up at 7am the loaded it ready for the wheel alignment, got it there at 8:30 they f**ked my around and end up picking it up at 11am only to find the couldnt align the rear due to the from offset and sunken rear. So they did it by eye and still charged me $80 *milkshakes*

 

Basically aimed to be at the track at 4 but got there at 5pm unloaded the car on notcied fuel on the trailer bed. Figured i just spilt fuel when i filled up.

 

So i missed the first two sessions i think and tires werent on the rims yet so i had run on my 17's which didnt fit, i had to wait in line ages for my session as iio decided to oil the track

 

I was kinda expecting it to be faster but still was alright. Did a few cruise laps and sorta got used to how it drove. Span out on turn2 and went over the rumble strip and didnt feel / sound good so i headed back into the pit and changed my undies.

 

Tires got all fitted and installed then head out for the 2nd session. This session went better i got used to counter steering and straighing up but still was slow and sucked haha it felt heaps better with new tires tho.

 

Got back to the pits and discovered my tires wher rubbing on somthing and were all sliced up. 3rd session i got more game and managed to slide the back corner after the back straight really well. I then started hand braking and clutching. Went into turn 2 got a fair bit of angle the wheel locked and i couldnt steer it. Turns out the tire has jammed agaist the firewall so had to get towed off. Next run was better still span out on turn 1 got angle on turn 2 and wheels jammed. Had to get towed off again. Then ask the the recovery bloke if i could drive straight onto the track without finding a cliff. Said yes, then i got bogged. So after awhile i finally get towed off.

 

All in all it was alright just cant wait till a private day when i can take passengers and the can help me.

 

A huge thanks, to Beams, wpnx7, jlts13, apoth and the many other members for their advice and help!

 

Forgot to turn the gopro on so only got one run recorded as i sidnt know how to turn it on haha
