Yeah fair enough, no point going a little faster when you are up against a whole other class of car!

Keep up the good work

When I raced my mk1 the lack of rear camber used to drive me nuts, I used to get about 25'C temp difference from the inside of the tyre to the outside :(
Unfortunately the rear beam has the hubs welded on so it's either cut, bend and then reweld the beam at each end to get the camber and slight toe out correct or perhaps look at a Honda rear beam with unboltable rear hubs and use shims, either way it's a bit of work to unlock the extra rear end grip.

I looked at the Mk1 rear beam axle & worked out you could cut the stub axles off & weld a Flange on to suit the Suzuki Sport rear disc brake hub. You could then run the complete Suzuki Sport rear brake setup & use tapered shims to adjust camber

With the work Dave is doing on the front end conversion you could have a complete balanced Suzuki Sport brake setup front & rear

Dave got both my front & rear Suzuki Sport brakes if you want to discuss the option with him

The blue starlet in the photo has front splitter, big rear wing, slicks and about 80hp more than I have and he has run a best of 1:00.3. Yet you look at Zuboo running no aero, slicks and many horsepowers and I think his best clubman time is 58.2


It's only 50hp more than you. Has done a 1:00.8 with the same hp as yours and a 59.3 with zuboo driving it like a bus =D>

You're getting very quick now. I think you'll be surprised how much of a difference removing the last 50 or so kg will make.

Let me know what you work out with the rear axle. Maybe DMWdave will do a us a group deal?

You uploaded your videos yet? Does race chrono allow a layover of data over video?

Well done Ben,I guess your liking the a050s!!
Happy to modify your rear beam to give it some camber ,I don't think it will be too much of a job and I'm keen to have a look at your car now that you've used it a bit.
Same goes for your starlet Harry,it really should be pretty straightforward.

I was just reading the weight of your car Your Mk1 with a heavier K20 weighs the exactly the same weight as my Mk11 GTi

Not a bad result given the extra torque & hp of a 2lt motor

Are you going out to the mid week sprints on the 6th May

I was planning to, but I start a new job on the 4th so won't be making it there, I'm planning to spend the day at the general practice on the 1st of May instead.

Let's have a little guessing game. It's obvious what's going on in this photo. Let's see if anyone can guess why!

Aaannnnnndddddd..........GO!

You're fitting a Type R 6 speed

Very cool, interested to see what the results are... I'd love an extra cog for my build for highway cruising! Great work

So its not the drill trying to exterminate the loose gearbox darlek style as it approaches the gearbox making love to the engine from behind in the traditional alpha male ruse of usurpation.

Hmm disappointed in that

Not entirely sure what to say to that! :lol:

I know what i want the results to be. Time will tell. This gearbox is alot shorter than the old one. At the redline in 6th will actually be around 10-15kmh slower than 5th in the old box.

The next track day is going to be on Saturday the 30th of May at Queensland Raceway for the Japanese Nationals.

For anyone interested here is a comparison of the gear ratios

----5 speed--|--6 speed
1st 3.062....|..3.266
2nd 1.769...|..2.130
3rd 1.212....|..1.517
4th 0.921....|..1.147
5th 0.738....|..0.970
6th ...........|..0.738
FD 4.764.....|..5.062

Making my top speed (at 8500rpm)
5 speed - 253km/h
6 speed - 238km/h

:shock: Might as well just start in 2nd gear...top speed is determined by the diff ratio since top gear in both boxes is the same, 6spd box would be more useful with a taller final drive, jeepers the old 5spd has a huge gap from 2nd to 3rd :shock:

The 6 speed from the DC5 is the same as what I've just put in but with the 4.7fd.

The box I'm using now came from the FN2 Civic which seems to be the gearing a lot of the N/A Honda boys seem to be favouring these days, as I said, time will tell. Fortunately Japnats will run on the clubman circuit at qr, so it will be an easy comparison from my last lot of times.

Are entries closed for Jap Nats

Just went onto QR site & can only see Drift entry form

Are you entered in C2 Performance NA

What is the running format How many cars on track at once & are they grouped by class or similar lap times

I can't find any reference to a cut off for entry......best bet would be to email him and check (through timeattack.com.au) as qr aren't running the sprint side of things.

According to the rules i don't comply for the performance class......the current time attack series rules allow me to run C1 (N/A performance class) but the rules they are using for Japnats are different (they are the rules they used a couple of years ago)

It runs more or less like any other QR sprint day, groups are based on times and group sizes probably depend on the total field size.

If you plan on entering, mention that you would like your pit allocated with Harry and myself.
