In car footage

Hi guys

Got the car back on the track at the w.end for a sprint meeting, using it as a shake down for the winter (I'm in NZ) series that starts in June.

Changes since last outing:
- http://banzai-racing.com/ - trailing arms, toe links and solid diff mounts
- Recon'd diff, new seals and replaced the collapsable spacer on the pinion shaft with a solid one (attached – ready for assembly) so it can be pulled apart as/when needed or when I'm ready to put an LSD in there

I'm lined up beside a mate running a v8 MX5 – you'll hear me back off a bit before turn 1 so I've got someone to chase down…

Cheers
Shaun

Great video. Your rotary sounds nice. What kind of power are you pushing, seems like alot with the oversteer and the way you catch up on the straights.

Thanks - it's only about 330HP - still running the stock twins (non-seq) - the oversteer is more likely because the tyres were on the last outing - a fresher set of slicks on for the next meeting.

Here's another video from the same dual-car sprints day recently ... a couple of loose moments in this one.

Back to the track do a full race meeting in 3 weeks time.
