Re: Who's Racing Their SVX?

Went racing at a track called Phillip Island on the weekend, had a spin at 200kph so a bit chicken since then.
Long story, miss judged the effect of the rain and was attempting to come out of the corner and onto the straight at a higher speed. It didn't work.

Just a tiny bit of an "off"
The tires/suspension didn't seem to like the grass/edge of the track
Good show handling it!
Cheers

Re: Who's Racing Their SVX?

The "Mach 5" SVX running in STX class made its second appearance at Cumberland Airport this past weekend's Harvest Moon two day autocross (following up on last month's appearance at the Summer Sizzler event).

Elazar and I co-drove the car, with Elazar in the first run group and me in the second (which meant I got to get soaked to the skin while working the course on Saturday!).

Results:

Saturday - 54 entries

Elazar came in 29th, I came in 37th. Elazar was 5th in Street Touring, being edged out by a Corvette, a BMW M3, and a SC MR2

Note on Saturday's runs -- we had "hurt" the passenger's side front Koni during the Summer Sizzler runs, but we weren't sure how badly. Well, we found out on Saturday that we'd killed it out right! Much thanks to Tom Krynock for his help on Saturday night swapping in a used insert to replace the dead one!


Sunday - 68 entries

Elazar came in 21st, I came in 35th. Elazar won Street Touring!!


My "learning moment" after watching my on-board videos -- start attacking the cones in the slaloms!! See my FB page for videos of my fastest run on Sunday.

We'll be running again in October at the Pumpkin Carve event!

Cheers
Bill

Why isn't Elazar running a real racing SVX rather than a street car? Is his daughter in the back and he needs the rear seat for her car seat?

I just got a set of used slicks from Chris Fritz to use this upcoming season!
Lack of tires is what kept The Racer from running this past year.

Re: Who's Racing Their SVX?

I have been running 17in race tires and standard brakes which has not been good. Right now I am doing a upgrade to Brembo's from a STI, 355 mm by 32 mm 2 part rotors and to fit it all under the car going to 18 in by 9.5 in rims with 265/35/18 Hankook Z221 tires.

Its proving more complicated then I expected but hell getting there in the end
Tony

Re: Who's Racing Their SVX?

All we're doing so far is hillclimbs and time-attack events with no more than 3 or 4 flying laps so the demand on the brakes is not a high with much less heat being built up in the short sessions. It is something we will have to address as well in the near future if we want to do anything more with the car.
