    Belgian Motorsports

    There are some really nice cars here and I saw everything from a VW Bug to a Ford GT. The track at Nordschleife looks like a really fun place to drive. But I never saw Barry anywhere. Also no stupid drivers on the road.

    just a remark , the Nordschleife is in Germany , not Belgium.

    And yes , it is a unicum , you can drive the 20 km long circuit with anything, as long as it's street legal, ... just buy a ticket and go !

    But .... every day there are total loss... so don't be surprized that the track is closed for a hour when you are waiting to start.... it's called the green hell.

    unexperienced drivers go out , or hit eachother.... there are a Thousand "crash compilations" on Youtube.

    Ofcourse around the track you see all kinds of sports/exotics. Drivers and spectators.

    I did it once , with the SRT10 . But to have a good idea of upcoming curves you must drive it first a hundred times.... or should have a copilot with roadbook ...

    was great that blower Ron, went from 500 HP to 650....and torque ! The truck became even a bit "scary" .....
    driving the circuit was more drag racing from corner to corner *8^

    That was quite a horsepower gain with the blower. And with the light weight on the rear end I can imagine it would have been touchy. Especially on a wet or damp road. I won't even drive my cars on a wet road because they are just to fast to break loose with the least amount of gas.

    Actually the weight distribution on the SRT/10 pickups was not that bad.

    There was a lot of discussion on that so I went and had mine weighed so we could know once and for all. If I remember correctly the F/R weight distribution was 53/47. Not bad for a pickup.

    And the standard cab was lowered a bit from the factory and there were some suppliers that offered new springs for the front and spacer blocks for the rear. I know mine handled pretty damn well for a full size pickup.

    i had all those mods on mine Silver , and indeed it drove's amazed well. Only the gearbox was sh*t. Up to 5000...max 5500 i could shift up , above 5500 it was difficult. That plastic clutch piece ? don't know , i didn't change it.
    Ofcourse it will never be a "race" car .... but it was fun doing it once.

    I removed the rubber isolator on my shifter and it made a world of difference.

    Erm............................. I don't believe this is the Forum in which to discuss such matters Silverback.

    Perhaps Guyonguy.com may welcome your observations.

    Well she can be kinky at times.

    The problem is that I'm never around for those kinky times.
