    Silver is right above the rear axle in the trunk. It helps traction alot....

    pitty , we couldn't hold our position... at 3/4 rally we were 14 ( lost 1 place ) but again in the dark we made some mistakes and ended 22. With all respect , my copilot is 70 ... has a life long experience ,but 12 hours reading complicated maps is perhaps becoming a bit to much... i couldn't do it for 1 hour

    and... we must not forget that in that rally the "top 20" in regularity rally was there. ( Belgian, UK and Holland )

    O well, #22 or 13 changes nothing ... it's just competition for fun.

    We enjoyed the rally , car was fine,..... if i see all those service teams .... a bit overdone. The only thing we had to do was filling up 3 times and tomorrow a high pressure wash and inspection

    You do realize don't you that your driver is ugly enough to scare the paint off the car.

    The main thing is that you had gun and the car is not damaged.

    That looked like a lot of fun.

    no real damage ... just the polyester CSL spoiler is broken in many places..... in fact to low for rally , it's a circuit thing.
    Think of cutting it in half and finish with a rubber strip ... ? afraid that we are gonne loose once the hole front....

    Must also redo my headers .... Those are from Schnitzer , again a circuit specialist. They come down the engine to low after which we go up again with the exhaust. At that point we touch the ground alot ...sure when the tarmac is curved. can give serious damage... if it gets stuck , it can pull on the engine .....
    Lucky , i have there 2 inches play to rise it.

    so i know what to do

    a bit of stress in the dark on very narrow roads....

    Those are good pictures Barry. Can you cut the headers where they go down to low and weld a pipe in that goes more or less straight to the exhaust pipes? As for the spoiler if you can find a stiff rubber strip that might work better on those roads. Either that or raise the height some as I doubt if you are going at speeds that it would make that much difference.

    Ron, must check with my welder what can be done ( cut and weld ) under the car .... not much room around..... best would be demouting the header but that is a difficult job .... those bolts are hard to reach , sure the lower ones under the tubes... . ( engine went in with header on... )

    raise the height would ruin the stance of the car .... now the wheels are perfect in the fenders.... it would become more a 4x4 look

    No helmets?

    Do they test you before the race and determine if there is anything in your head to damage and if not, no helmet required?

  16. #136
    Indeed John , no helmets. It's regularity on open road.... the roadbook is made at a average speed of 50 km/h.
    Ofcourse when one has lost some time ( wrong turn, other traffic... ) you must catch up.... driving faster... but they do average speed controls , more then 70 average is out of the rally , also max speed ( legal one ) +10 is out.
    So most catching up time is in the corners .....
