Germanlook.com Dunnville Trackday
 
I went to Dunnville yesterday with my brother and his GSR hatch beater for the Germanlook.com track day.

It was an awesome day, no BMW's. I should have brought the E30. But turbo VW's aren't as fast as I thought.

Sam, I was there yesterday with TomTom & RichieRich (grey E92 335i & grey E39 540i). I was driving a silver Nissan 350Z. I'm sure you saw us leaving during your driver's meeting? Did the VW Bus go on the track? How was Paul's KoenigTT on the track?

SamE30e 10-20-2008 02:44 PM

I think I saw you guys leaving. The bus went for a slow lap. And the TT was pretty bad ass, I don't think he was opening it up on the straights but definetly a fast car.

yeah those turbo's don't look very fast on the track when you're chasing with a gsr hatch :D *th-up*

SamE30e 10-20-2008 03:17 PM

Chasing?

You mean mowing down lol.

That jetta in the picture was definetly quick in the straights. But there was a turbo 2L MKII that I thought would be faster.

I thought Pulsar GTI-R's would be quick but not really.

Overall, nice cars and awesome day.

Yea I did mean that. That's what it is.

Arash 10-20-2008 10:21 PM

Lol! I thought you said mowing lawn :D

It's a GSR is a B18C1... B18C5 is a Type-R engine. Either way, the car was way slower then it should be thanks to the OEM 1.6L SOHC exhaust I've still got on the car. It was still enough to beat most cars out there though, like the Pulsar GTiR and the turbo VW.

Now I'm addicted to lapping days.

Arash 10-20-2008 10:42 PM

D headers fit the b18?!? anyhow I'm sure you had a lot of fun. I'm picking up a b16a2 very soon for my hatch, can't wait! come to the events next yr we'll check which one is better :D

It's the B series header mated to the D series mid pipe and muffler.

I don't need to 'check' which one is better... I already know :p I was going to swap a SiR drivetrain but decided against it after reading what people had to say.

My EK is pretty heavy though, so if you've got a EG Civic VX or something lightweight, you'll have a huge advantage.

Arash 10-22-2008 01:40 PM

whats wrong with the sir drivetrain? I only read only good things about them, alot of people run b16 tranny's with their gsr due to the gearing. what tranny are you using now?
