Thanks to John and all the other volunteers who made this day happen. I had a great time.

I did not have much time to take shots between runs so I missed a lot of cars. Here are a few -

Great shots! I love the one of Graeme three wheeling (two in the grass, one on track, and one in the air!) Well done Graeme, not too many people have mastered their car well enough to pull that off! I wonder if thats why you were losing air?

Volunteers; Thank you so much!!!

Best time I've had in an e30 ever!.... with my zipper up.

It was 13 degrees from 11am till 3am then it got pretty cold around 6 with a cold wind. We had a heated portable which is used for the classroom so lots of place to stretch out and warm up if you were cold. Fantastic day, I couldn't have asked for better anything other, than maybe a faster car! LOL.

You're still like 6 seconds quicker in Raw time than the next closest car though... that might be safe.

Here's my 5th run of the day, which I think was a 1:31.7 clean. (compared to a 2:07 first run in the wet with a loop and a couple pilons). John, ever since you got the Starspecs, I haven't been able to beat you any more*uzi*. Sorry for the crappy quality vid. It's just a point and shoot mounted to a headrest mount.

(Cough) Yes, Rich is right, its the Touring or "Gnome-Mobile". Progressively faster runs but could really have used an LSD and 6MT to quicken the response in the corners- looking into the swap sometime soon I hope (Jay?).
P.S. My fronts were almost gone which provided some drama during lapping:eek:, my tire shredded itself on hwy 115 on the way home. *shiner*
Well, it went out with a bang, just in time for the winter swap.

Do you fill up early? I let it go until I do about 30 to 40km on the low fuel light and then I put 57 ish litres in.

DIY
11-24-2011, 09:07 AM
I kinda cheat.. From a full tank I drive till about half, then fillup again. Then just do L/km based on how much was filled and the trip..

dble Trouble
11-24-2011, 09:29 AM
So how many l/100km do you do then? If you take my average of 57 litres bringing me 650 km then that's 8.7 which is not exactly amazing by todays standards.

I'm in the same boat. After I took my car out of storage at the start of the year the gas tank had a hole in the top. As a result my fuel mileage went down considerably as well, partly because of spillage in hard cornering, but mostly because the evaporated gas vapour is always escaping from the tank. I'm planning on fixing it in the spring though.

I only stored it last winter because I was in school and didn't really need the car, took it off insurance to save money. I'll be driving it this winter.

Removing the exhaust and drive shaft isn't that bad of a job, if you've already done it once it should be a piece of cake now *th-up*

With all the people you know in the car scene, how do you not have a buddy that'll lend you a hoist on a weekend or something? One of my buddies is looking into opening his own shop, and I'm pumped because then I'll have access to a hoist lol.
