Hey everybody,

Took my turbo MK3 out to the dirt yesterday for a fun day, found a few things that need work.

Definitely need some shocks and springs with less travel that are stiffer, currently it's got heaps of body roll.

With the AD08R's on it I was able to hold good cornering grip, and it had plenty of power and torque to keep the front end pulling me through the corner.

Still, if I put a couple too many mm into the go fast pedal I was lighting up the tires, wound up leaving solid black lines all the way up the back straight.

IACV (I think) failed on the second last session and the car wouldn't idle or accept any throttle so some of the other guys kindly pushed it back onto the trailer.

Not as fast as my WRX and it takes a lot more effort to drive on the dirt but it was damn fun.

Tossing between using it on tarmac only (Lakeside) or running C class and taking home some trophies.

All in all very impressed with the little hatch, I see why you guys love these so much.

Nice Work, love it out there.
Best place to keep your skills up.
I'll be back when my current rebuild is done.
Might have the 86 out there before then .
