Yea two awesome guys together, no word on Coulthard he struggled to get a seat in 2022 championship.I envy you , Coulthard and McLaughlin both, that is a coup, two of my favorite drivers from the Australian V8 Supercar Series. Any word on Coulthard running anything other than a one off for a Honda Team in a different race series? We all know where McLaughlin is running currently.
Yea it would have been easier to buy something already made, but where is the fun in that?Interesting , I had a 17 quart system in my 2013 Boss 302S but it came complete, whereas you look like you built the unit yourself. I kept wondering about how I would do in the Mach 1 without the system, but you may have given me an idea with the pics you sent.
Yea that 302 is a race car with a cage and light weight, i was on stock wheels and stock Pirelli tires with standard seats and full interior running street/track front and rear hawk pads.Loved the run at Sandown, and it appears you only got passed by a Kona Blue Boss 302 with more motor. We need to get you a TrackMustangsOnline decal so you can add even more intimidation to all the Mustangs you were passing. Seemed like you were the only one really understanding that the entire track is there to use, and I can tell you like the curbing as much as I do. Those are just berms to help rotate the car a bit, right? Look forward to seeing other tracks down under , but Sandown looks fun and you were rocking and a rolling there!
Yea some tire choices there, with the wider wheels im not sure if to run 10" or 11" wide front and rear or stagger them front and rear with possibly some spacers on the frontA quick check shows that Australia seems to have attracted more of the performance tire market than a lot of places and you even show the Hankook RS-4 which is unobtainium here ( though I did not check sizes ). With Pilot Sport Cup 2s, Falken RT615s, Yokohama A052s ( these might be a different version that is not quite at sticky), Goodyears, Dunlops and more , you get some more aggressive tires and you will lop off a lot of time. Look into some wider wheels too and your times will drop and I am sure you can find a good solid track pad down under too.
most of the stuff we have to get from US, im waiting to get some OP GT4 studs but they have been out of stock for god knows how long now. So your saying that i can run 11" at the front? with what size spacers?How are you doing down under for ARP or similar extended studs ( say 3 inches ) because squared is the way to go, but at present the studs are difficult to acquire. A 10 inch wheel likely would not be an issue, but it would limit the size of tire. I think most on here would tell you to get as big of a tire as possible but as noted there are some issues at present in the US. You will definitely be faster than on the PZeroes ( somehow the word zero seems appropriate , ha ) but go square so you can rotate and get more life out of your tires.
If it’s not too much of a bother, everything. I’ve invited Bill to come visit over the summer with his new Mach1. Being in the south now, it be warm during the summer. My trailer will get a new air conditioner soon. I will need the same for the driver during sessions. Your trunk mounted system looks perfect for a car with a full interior. Bill and I both have full interiors. Oh yea….and we are old also. Comfort is getting more important these days.I got some parts from amazon and some from cool shirt, what are you interested and ill get the list together.
