Lotus club AX at Marina

Postby grant » Tue Aug 15, 2017 12:31 am

Hung with the golden gate lotus club this weekend. Great low key event out at Marina. These guys remind me of good old days with MBR PCA AX in 70s and 80s. Very fun group. Am/PM run format. Fun course! Sheilah caught a video of my last and fastest run which was only couple tenths off my AM fast run. Was interesting day. Slippery in AM with cool Marina mist but I got a rerun and was able to heat up my tires. Had to adjust my setup a bit to dial out understeer due to Luke warn front tires. I may be very close to Ideal weight for car as this is first time I have had front tire warmth issues. Time for more power now! Car carriers speed very well but video makes it painfully clear low RPM power not there. I could gain second or 2 with good mid range power of say 400 ft lbs of torque and 400 hp from a blower. ....Still thinking fast spooling turbo :devil: Sheilah said maybe for my birthday.

Cool Grant!
I like how you categorized the video as "comedy" :lol1:
