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.

Cheers.

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?

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.

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.

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.

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.

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?
