Flat out turn turn turn turn flatout turn flat out turn turn turn turn flat out turn flat out and so on.
Id need somewhere like anglsea or snett to get the most out of my car where the Aero comes into effect ( 70 MPH+). I know you get over those speeds on all of the irish tracks but not for long and there are no high speed corners bar one out the country on the international but thats only mildly quick. Its a corner im actuallly looking forward to taking it in the new car because the Compact was a twitchy mofo through there.


Bishops court looks like a good circuit, one id like to do at some point.

Ye the compact was nervous enough coming out of 2 but so was the driver which didnt help.
The GTR should be able to travel through that corner at a much better Pace.
( In theory)

Stifer,Wider, lower, larger tyre, massive wing, better diff and more power.

It Should be Fun I cant say there will be a massive difference in lap times mind. If i bust 60 secs in the GTR ill be doing very well. The compact was a 60second car for sure but it was hard to trust it round mondello and i never ever had new tyres near it. The best i managed was mid 101's IIRC but i know it had more to give.The whole rear end of the compact was loose.
The evidence was the wet weather in Aglesea when i out qualified the Sierra. Not much use in the dry though.
Marks E46 GTR was a good lesson in how a GTR Behaves on a fast flowing track, it wasnt easy to understand it either. The Aero ads so much weight through the turns that its almost impossible to get a feel for the limit. I never found it in marks GTR i was a mile off the pace not helped by failing to get down the Sequential Box properly = Slower Entry and Exit.
Mondello will be comletely different because the aero wont really feature and if anything will create more drag then down force.

We shall see.
Happy days ahead.

Yep she is S54rd allready. Starts on the button and sounds like a john deere cutting silage. It should sound better with Exhausts conected
An other teaser for ya'll. It ran first turn, slightly lean on fuel in this one but when we increased the pressure it ran like a dream.
Credit to Mr Gilmartin of course, the man is talented.

See if you can notice the tricks in here compared to other S54 conversions.

Clicky.

This car deserves its own project thread. Fuel rail looks like standard s54 but converted to a return system ( or maybe just a pressure takeoff ). Idle controller has been added, presumably to add cable throttle conversion ( can't see clearly enough in pic ) Expansion tank moved to proper location. Engine looks to have been lowered a bit.

BrianF - where do you see ballast mentioned in itcc 2013 tech regs?
