    Default AROCA Regularity Relay Winton 18/19 Oct 2014

    Hi,

    Advertisement


    Our team are heading over to Winton for the 6 hour regularity relay.
    Not sure what car I'm taking yet.
    The usual 206 still has the gearbox is out with a 4.75 final drive going.
    And two degree front hubs to go on. Fingers crossed.
    If things go together quickly I might be doing the practice day on Friday.
    Drop in and say G'day if your in the area.

    I imported it.
    It was manufactured by SMAN the Peugeot gearbox factory.
    They only do BE4 not BE3.
    Speak to PGTI6 he got a BE3 4.75 over recently.

    Good luck to you and the team for this weekend Brett. Weather looks great (Sun 30). Hope the new gearing & camber works well for the 206.

    Did a 1:46.47 on Harry's Laptimer in practice today. AROCA didn't upload last years to Natsoft so I don't have a comparison. The car feels good I just needs to get familiar with the new ratios.

    I've got a 1:47.7 posted for Winton in mine, on R888's with the quaife but otherwise stock. I'm sure there's a couple of seconds to improve on that.

    I didn't get much practice yesterday afternoon as we qualified Anthony in my car.
    After he broke the wheel of the Torana
    We did single stints of approximately an hour and a half each today.
    Finishing fourth out of forty two, and missing third by 0.08 of a percent.

    Well done Brett. I saw Anthony's times on Natsoft & thought he must have somehow repaired the Torana!

    What were your impressions of the changes you made?

    i need to run at Mallala to be definitive, but my impressions so far are:-

    Better turn in with the front of the car running around 2.7 degrees of camber.
    Tyre wear seems to be more even, but this could be due to running at Winton rather than Mallala.
    Most of the circuit was third and fourth gears. Only using second through the esses and when caught behind a slow car.
    I was short changing up the front straight from fourth to fifth as I was almost running out of revs.
    Fifth now has punch, whereas the old final drive didn't and at Phillip Island change into fifth was a let down.

    Last year the fastest run I had in practice was 1:48.07 this year it was 1:46.7 on the Dorian on Saturday (1:46.3 was my only break out lap on Sunday). but I think I could have dropped it further with a little more time on the track, and the fresher tyres I was going to use.
