Ruapuna Track Day 18/06/16

Postby b110sss » Wed Jul 13, 2016 6:47 pm

Finally sorted this out ( I think )
Anyway for those of you into the sound of an old school A series at full cry - please excuse the first lap between cold tyres, finding neutrals at the hairpin and general driver rustiness...Enjoy.
Cheers
Dave

Just incase you were wondering why,Track day rules dictate no passing around corners or under brakes

Thats great Dave. Looking forward to having a play in my coupe once my engine is together.
I saw on 1200.com that you had a new close ratio gearbox from Wellington. Is it in the car here? Sounds like there are a few straight cut gears.

Yes, that's the rebuilt Cooke 5 speed in the car.
It was a new cluster that I had made by Bettanies after it pinged a tooth off 4th gear late last year.

Dave, car sounds as good as it looks, great drive. I am proud of you, that conservative passing must have been one of the hardest things you have ever done!!!
