Race Car

Clearly blog writing shouldn’t be one of my goals since I quite clearly suck at keeping up with it. However, I’m gonna try again. So welcome to 2018, we’re only 1/3 of the way through the year so far, so why not do a blog. Because we enjoyed Rally NZ […]

2018. New goals.

Apologies to my avid readers.  Both of them.  🙂 This year has been quite mental. However, the rally plans are in full swing and scarily, the entry form has been sent off. So with 36 days remaining (I really wish I hadn’t calculated that) preparations are ramping up. Currently studying […]

Countdown has begun…

So much for blogging more.  It’s been just over a month and I haven’t put fingers to keyboard.  Whoops. However, it’s not been all fails.  The busy times have started.  Dual event weekend back in mid Feb with Millstream Road.  Nice piece of gravel road up near Dannevirke. Lesson learned […]

Goal fail

It’s November.  Means a break for a few weeks after 6 events in 6 weeks.  Good for the budget.  And the various small jobs that need doing on the car now. For example, during some of the commuting to the further away events I started noticing some shuddering from the […]

Busy busy

It’s been a busy few weeks and feels like I’ve spent most of the time driving.  Not that that’s a particularly bad thing as I do like driving.  Handy given my main hobby. The last two weekends have seen us covering around 1200km in touring, firstly to TECT All Terrain […]

Road tripping

It’s been longer than I planned between blogs and I have been working on this on over the last couple of weeks.  Been a little bit busy with road trips, car repairs and events.  Plus that work thing that I have to do to pay for it all.  But here […]

Digital Revolution

G4, 36, 185, 362, VF28, VF30, VF37, 250,000, 1150. Just some of the numbers from the last 4 days. Starting with the biggest.  250,000 is about the number of kms I suspect the turbo has done.  It’s certainly the factory spec VF28 turbo, whether or not it’s previously been replaced […]

It’s a numbers game

One of the many things on the To Do list was to replace the front brakes as they were approaching end of life. Several phone calls later, mostly to Steve up at RaceBrakes, we settled on a new brand for me.  Previously I’ve been running Mintex 1166 compound pads on […]

Braking News

Motorsport is a fickle mistress. As noted in the previous post, the plan was two days of racing this weekend, firstly up north of Napier then a second day over in the Waiararapa.  Day one happened, but we had to withdraw from day two unfortunately with a suspected blown or […]

Just a little whine…
