    Had a cracker of a day's racing at SALS today. In short 3 wins from 3 starts for the PSR Hormann HT-3 V2 .

    I hadn't had an opportunity to do any testing since last round so the car hit the track the same as it ended the last round.

    The car went well, the Mik Morten engine is freeing up and running sweet and the couple of small suspension changes worked for the better. I still had a heap of under steer on turn in but I was happy with the way it was exiting so I wasn't to concerned.

    I am looking forward to doing a bit of testing now as I'm sure there is a heap more speed to get from it.

    Bring on test day!

    Well test and tune has came and gone and I wasn't able to attend
    I did how ever get to have a bit tool time on the car!

    I received my first box of goodies from PSR since the move interstate.
    Brakes! A set of twin piston Mecatech hydros . What an awesome bit of kit.
    They were a pretty easy fit up and after watching a youtube video I had them bleed and ready to go.

    I was in to much of a hurry to get them fitted that I forgot to take some other pictures.
    Heres some fitted up! The machine work is spot on!





    The master cylinder.


    Just have to wait a couple of weeks now to see how they pull me up on the track! No more having to back off 2/3 the way down the back straight now, should help lower the lap times a bit more.

    Thanks PSR!

    Well, brake wise tire choice didn't make that much of a difference on dirt, the brakes work that well they all just locked up!
    Took a bit of getting used to and the bias wasn't as easy to get right as I first thought. It's another button on the transmitter to get used too. In the end I think I still had too much front but it was much better than racing with out them .

    Had another awesome day race wise, another 3 from 3 for the PSR Hormann HT-3. What an awesome car to drive!

    I think the track got better as the day went on. It was watered well between heats and finals and in the end there was a great racing line.

    I only made one suspension change for the day and the usual tire change and the car reacted well as expected. I'm not 100% convinced i made the right tire choice for the final but it got me the results I was after.

    I think that everyone that attended would agree that the track is getting better all the time. A bit of sunshine is a heap better than an inch of rain.

    Nice shot of my car at the Nats at SSME taken by Godles.

    It was a great event, well run at a great venue.

    It was good to finally have a decent chance to play around with the suspension.
    The heats started off good with a 1st but I had a DNF and 2 DNS due to a couple of stripped grub screws in the right hand rear hub. No more alloy hubs, I've gone back to the original steel ones.
    With the hub fixed I managed a 2nd and another 1st in the remainder of heats to give me P6 in the A final.
    In short, a run in with a stray car done some serious damage to a hinge pin. The car was a hand full after that but still managed to bring it home in a respectable 7th.
    The MIK motor performed flawlessly, I'm really impressed with the power and reliability I got from it.

    A big thanks to Mike and Bryan from PSR for their on going support. Cheers guys!

    We have now finished the SALS 2013 winter series. It ended up being 1 round short of the scheduled 5 due to a few wet weekends.

    I didnt finish the first the heat, bald tyres were the main reason, I had no grip at all. Did ok in the second heat with the third quickest time.

    The final was a shocker. After an incident on the first lap I took an excursion off the track and got hooked up on the ropes that define the track. One of my rear axles picked up the frayed ends and wrapped it's self up so tight it stalled the engine. Once I got going again it difficult to handle, one wheel was all but locked up. I kept going the best I could and managed to get fourth.


    A hint of what was caught up


    more!

    .


    Luckily I only had to start the race to get enough points to take the Championship!

    We have a bit of a break coming up, a funday on Dec 1st and the next scheduled meeting isn't until Feb 2014 so I'll have a bit of time to give it a strip down and give it a good once over.

    It's a good solid reliable car, easy to work on and fun to drive. The Mik Motor is awesome! plenty of power, reliable and good on fuel.

    Cheers!

    It's time for the SALS 2014 race series to start. No major changes as none were needed .
    A quick once over and a new paint job and I'm ready to go.







    I hope for another good year.

    Cheers

    It wasn't the best of starts to the year but still managed to place third in the final.
    Well done to Skip and Matt placing 1st and 2nd.

    I was very rusty at the controls, no doubt about it and I could not for the life of me battle the under steer I had dialed into the car.
    Nothing better after a frustrating round to spoil yourself so I have added a new SAMBA titanium pipe and a set of 170mm FG wheels.





    Bring on round 2

    Thanks Powerslide Racing
