Never done one before but am interested.

Anyone got any overview of what they actually do? Carlimits old website is vague and the new website still doesn't say🤷‍♂️
FrankenRex2, leaner and meaner. RR Full Bridge rebuild with Race Extension porting, Cusco Strut Brace, RB Header, RB Dual Res Decat, Pettit Catback, Eibach lowering springs, Maserati 6 pot brakes, braided brake lines, custom built DRLs, track wheels, Custom front and rear lights, braided clutch line, RB ARBs - the list goes on!

The group days were less focused than the 4car days when carlimits ran them.

I remember doing the high speed turn where the aim is to prevent a Spin and complete the turn at the highest speed before crossing the imaginary wall line. This is done without TC on and often involves spinning.

We also done a timed circuit.

It's a great day and fun and I have probably forgotten a few bits that are done during the day.

The format may have changed

For anyone who is curious about what activities were done on the former Car Limits Activity days, here's my videos from the 2017 day. Forgive the giggling after I just about saved a 4 wheel drift on the short sprint course...



I also went back the following year and did a dedicated 4 man day, which was very worthwhile:

I’m really interested in a day like this provided the date works. Would it be possible to pencil me in too?

Thanks :)
