    Default Wakefield Supersprint - Sunday 24th May

    We are running the s16 at a club supersprint this weekend, running on road tyres in a basic road car, so happy if we can get a 1.18 lap! Only 10 + seconds off the 205's!!!!!!!

    That 10 seconds is exponential too. You wouldn't believe how hard the last 1-1.5 sec has been. Why don't you join us in the CSCA rounds? Round 3 for 27 June at Wakefield has just opened. I won't be there but John will.

    Well lots of fun!

    This car is a std S16 engine with a K&N airfilter, we fitted a 3j LSD and run it as is on Toyo Proxis road tyres. It has the Koni road spec adjustables which I adjusted as stiff as I could. So although a fair bit underpowered It actually handles semi ok, we tried to make same adjustments through the day on tyre pressure.

    So the little car run up over 60 laps, only issue was a drive shaft that cried enough. Very reliable and so much fun!

    Long list of improvements:

    Stiifer springs and rear ARB/ Torsion combo. Better brake pads, Some form of semi slick, A bit more power and -50Kg weight loss - I am not sure I need the Air Con in the car !

    Most lap time 1.19 - 1.20 with the best 1.18.2

    Good work. As you know, it's one of those things you have to pour money at in order to go faster. Priority has to be torsion bars, brakes and tyres. Do you need a contact for torsion bars?
