It's a shame. It'd be very disappointing for him. I know I would be p****d. But hopefully he can find some positive in the whole situation and get something out of it. Who knows, it's been off the road for a while now so his driving skills may have been a bit rusty...

We've all got a few months now to make some changes and hopefully see some improvements. Maybe some attitudes will see some adjustments too and we can all get along like one big, happy family as it should be! :D

Give him a break ffs

Im sure everyone has run horror times on any given day when the track/traction/car/driver isnt all up to scratch at the same time.

There been a few times where ive thought of something smart to type in response to "te250"s posts but havnt cause its obvious he's only biting back to the s**t thrown at him..... which i know very well he started though....

i for one hope he can run the times he hopes for and be happy, cause theres a alot of I6's getting around that will give his 'blueprinted' 220 motor a run for his money..... :)

What tyres? And what was the track temp?

If the track temp was under 20 C then its a waste of time trying.

im guesing the track temp was under 20 degrees cos it was only bout 12 degrees or so on friday nite.
i run bridgstone turanzas, 225/?/15.
Last time i ran it was 30 sumthing degrees, i ran the same tyres at heathcote n i could stall the car to 2000rpm n launch with no wheel spin.
