    Toyo R888R

    Thanks, that's really good stuff.
  2. Just fitted a new set, off to Grafton Hill Climb on Sunday. The run is a sub minute, so they are never going to get hot, so what pressures? I'm leaning toward 28psi, but info on an Elise is scarce in these parts, so any recommendations?
  3. OK, maybe it was a bit extravagant, but what the hell, I love it.

    Response to Cancer

    It's standard, running semi slicks (road legal) and yes I drive it to the track, and the supermarket! Now going to re-bush all the suspension, and get a full alignment, for next year, and try a set of Nankang tyres. See if I can shave another second off. There's a bit more left in the driver, but not much. I've had fun.

    Response to Cancer

    It was about this time last year I was diagnosed with cancer. Well what else does a man do ? he decides to race again of course. This shot from the final round at the Grafton Hill Climb, I won all 4 rounds, well pleased with that. Production Sports category. Analysis, discipline, focus, analysis, discipline, focus, analysis, discipline, focus. Faster next year!

    Nankang Tyres

    Anyone tried these Nankang tyres yet? The AR1 looks a bit ambitious for any road use, wouldn't look forward to driving that in the wet. NSR-2R looks a little tamer. A guy was running them at a hill climb on the weekend and they looked to be working well. Looking to replace these Federals.
  7. How's the weather down your way. Is your car safe?

  8. What tyres do you guys use over there for track days. Specifically hill climb and lap dash, ie, never going to get enough heat into them. Also has to be on the standard rim size front 175/50/R16 and rear 225/45/R17. (or close) Roger

    Come back

    In comparative terms, it was 4 seconds faster than the fastest Porsche.

    Come back

    Had the real live event at Grafton, NSW today. Class 1 1st Roger Harris Lotus Elise. Not the world championship, but a good day at 66, and faster than I thought I could go.

    Come back

    Went to the Grafton Hill Climb today, just practice, no prizes. First time on a track in 32 years. Fastest Class 1 time of the day: 96, Roger Harris, lotus Elise. I was told if I get down to around a minute that would be impressive. 3rd run produced 58.9. I'm well pleased with myself, not bad at 66.

    Easy cambelt change.

    I used Travis's method, now use it all belts. Just about fool proof.

    Something I don't understand

    There is no light, no way forward, no way back. Only pain and continued suffering, there is only one way to end the suffering. Came close.
