my mx5 turbo donington - dominating and overtook 2 ford gt40

Recommended Posts

So im just guna copy and paste this from mx5nuts forum:



went to fast car fest on sunday, heres the vids from my sessions, ill put the best one up first and those that only want to see the gt40s watch from 9min:45 onwards biggrin.png



cracking day, next on the list is coilovers as bilsten shocks and eichback springs dont cut it anymore (delayed coilvers in favour of mapping lol) but with my ps3 tyres and brakes being good enough and what seem to be a reliable good amount of power its time to get coilover,my best lap time i've got from some freeze frames was 1.26 i recon maybe another couple second of that with stiffer suspension alone is doable (see 3rd video from 4.37 - 6:05 for a good hotlap)

and the high quality version no rear cam embedded (probly better)

dude whats the car like to drive on the road when the boost comes in? im possibly gonna turbo mine hopefully make about 240.

its amazing more fun than my supra just because of its size, i use an ebc and external wastegate so if its wet i can leave it on base 7psi and itll still grip in the rain.

but it makes for a very fast road car with pretty much no lag (12psi by 2800)

If the camera supports it a remote mic with a sock.

unfortunatly it dosnt but given the amount of tracktime ive been doing i should probly but a new camera that can

Yes Dan good driving!



I want to see the GT in action again.



The vids with the VF setup were mad, proper street machine.

;D cheers dude, good to see your still about!

The GT is getting a new 5e after a few issues (I actually started it last week).. should be done end of September and I'll be tracking that next year. Going back to a vf35 or vf28 again as the 20g was too Laggy but made silly power. Got pissed off changing boxes so going more "sensible" lol

should be back on track in 2017 with fresh 5e and new turbo setup :) not as mental this time as lag sucks in a high hp starlet but can still make high 300's with good spool.
