Holy cow, congrats Mikey! So are you going to drive the snot out of this, or kick the grand piano out of the living room and put this in its place?
so this was the final session.. we did 20 min stints.. youtube limit is 15 mins so its in two parts..
Yea it looked tidy (your turn exit). What's sad is I used to be quite comfortable doing this all myself, but TC has made it so easy now that I worry how I would do on a fully manual car (with lots of power) again. I also can no longer tell, on small blips, if it's me doing the saving or is it the TC. On bigger ass out adventures you KNOW its TC doing its thing, but on the small ones, I *like* to believe it's me.Ha.. the point is it doesnt move.. ! Cos i am still not driving close to its limits.. i actually didn’t think the TC was firing, but on the onboard you can hear it, particularly on one occasion out of the last corner before the start finish straight..
It is adjustable yes... we dont have it on high, but it is there to help me (or stop me, depending on your point of view.. !)
But like any good car, race car or otherwise, it’s a very easy thing to correct, just a small turn of the wheel, and you gather it all up and move on... you can see one small occasion out of i think the hairpin at the end of the back straight where the rear moves very slightly but i honestly barely even felt it...
Are you proud of me for working out how to imbed it all ;
Aye-chee-wa-wa that is insane! What do you suspect the limits of grip are long and lateral? Much higher and you will need a g suit! Kudos @Mikeybsome data points ..
biggest stop 273 kmh to 80kmh... 80 metres.. 70 bar on the pedal
-3.86 g longitudinal
2.7 lateral (in the corners obv)
brake temps 60% of what they will actually work at.. so i think i will have to push GT3 pressures of 120 bar to really get it to stop...
im sure that’s a free warrantied service, right? 🤔http://instagr.am/p/CZJixUpon_W/
Currently undergoing complete overhaul at the factory.. that's my number 1 mechanic in the 2nd photo.. engine has gone back to mercedes... everything else on the car has been disassembled, checked, and the process of being rebuilt.. gearbox completely rebuilt, along with the oil pump within it.
