What I did at the Weekend

Postby Mark S » Thu Sep 25, 2008 5:30 pm

Me & some guys from work took a jolly up to Knockhill.
and I took the Bleeding 5 with me
(Took my 205GTi too, to see if I could sell it)
and see what happened

Ooops, I seem to have taken it on track.....
ah well, I suppose the Bleeding 5 would have been more sideways...

Err, YES :D

it was strange swapping between the 2, the 5's steering is so sharp, I felt I kept trying to turn too much, which made it interesting on the 1st lap or 2 out :-)

I'm sure it would have been much quicker with decent brakes, tyres & suspession :D

At least it goes sideways on 4 cylinders



Still grining? :D

Nice pics Mark. Looks like a giggle.

Here are some pictures of what I got up to at the weekend.

Nice oversteer shots, Mark. I found my Eunos would sustain sideways action on a dry track even with Goodyears fitted. Lift-off oversteer on entry to get the arse out initally, then power to maintain the slide. When I got the car I didn't think it would have anywhere near enough poke to power oversteer in the dry.

I take it you still have the 'Aromatic crispy duck'-brand Chinese remoulds on the car? If so, then I take it that the above pictured slides ended just after the hairpin and not in the middle of the kart track/Knockhill restuarant/Dunfermline (delete as applicable)!?
