Re: ***TRACKDAY - Anglesey GP & Coastal Sunday 13th December £119***

Just been doing my Q role and found the place. Now trying to work out where we're going to park everyone. Also noticed that there will been some spooning involved.

It's a lovely house.

Re: Once you go black.... (Condor's PZ)

That's interesting Dave thanks. About the same actually. I was quite alarmed to get up to 100 after driving up a mile long hill at 30. Was between 90 and 100 for the whole trip today.

Re: Once you go black.... (Condor's PZ)

Car running hot again today. I checked the Armaflex when I got home and it's still there, so my confidence in the car behaving at Mallory next week has evaporated [emoji17]

Yes probably sensible to eat in that night and have the food waiting for them.

Just booked it, although I don’t know which car I will be in, Kamikaze or Pz?
Ah you bought it Dave! Hope it's ready for a shakedown. :)

I've also booked my place now and will stay Sat and Sun nights :thumleft:

Dammit Ranjan! As you know; I was already tempted, but didn't think it was fair to demand even more childcare from my poor parents. I have a Javelin credit from my cancelled Anglesey day in August and I still really need to drive there. Anyway I've got permission, so hold the last place at the cotta...

Took a bit longer than usual what with a week's holiday, busy work and single parenting 2 children for a while, but here's some video from Pembrey. Sadly no GPS data as Harry's Lap Timer has a known issue on Android 10 where it can't export the data (Soon to be fixed apparently). Not the most exciti...

Re: Once you go black.... (Condor's PZ)

Thanks all. Just got back from a week's holiday yesterday and timed my order so that the Armaflex arrived this morning. I undid the undertray from the front and wedged a length under the radiator. I also found that the rear of my undertray had come out again and one of the fixings had gone M.I.A. An...

Re: Once you go black.... (Condor's PZ)

Car passed its MOT this week. Also took advantage of the ramp and had the undertray refitted. Having looked in through the front, I still think there's too much space for air to go underneath. Difficult to photo but am I missing anything? https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200821/dd6979fe82762647565...

Re: Once you go black.... (Condor's PZ)

Even having the rubber strips missing around the radiator can have a significant impact on cooling efficiency, so you're lucky it was so cool and wet that you got away with having the undertray loose. Thanks for the reply Dave. It gives me confidence that refixing it should hopefully be enough and ...

You probably need to eat at these type of establishments more often Ranjan. I bet your body isn't used to the high grease content!

Re: ***TRACKDAY, Pembrey Circuit - Saturday 15th August SOLD OUT***

After foolishly putting on Federals and then having to swap back once the weather swiftly deteriorated, I made up for lost time and had a decent afternoon I did nearly 40 laps after 3pm alone! The final sessions were great as the track was empty and not so water logged. I've never been that comforta...

Re: ***TRACKDAY, Pembrey Circuit - Saturday 15th August SOLD OUT***

More likely to be wet on the drive up than on the day itself going by the current forecast. I'll probably drive there on Rainsports and fit Federals when I arrive

Nice. The paintwork looks great on that car. Nice deep black. I tried some Turtlwax Jet Black spray polish on it and the results were great. Unfortunately being a black car, it gets dirty very quickly. Cars never stay clean at my house anyway - mostly pollen I think. The black is very deep. I have ...

Re: Once you go black.... (Condor's PZ)

Certainly good, but having been through the car to the extent that I have over the last 4 months, I've discovered a few things that I'll have to sort out in the chase for perfection. A project car is never finished afterall!
