Awesome machine Tamas, had a look at your build thread, amazing!

Any plans to do a lowered seat frame for the passenger side? More to allow my short girlfriend to get into the car without damaging the seats!
 
the seat base on the passenger side is different completely.

let me think on it, if there is a demand I might prepare one.

anyone is having a front splitter, what he can send me, so I can make one from carbon?

In theory the passenger side should be simpler but I am guessing its more of a complete frame rather than a modification. I get that it depends on demand though :grinning:
 
I got fed up that I could not solve the fresh cold ram air into the V6 airbox, so it had to go.
Now an R3 carbon airbox is coming!
 
Shit could happen ad it happened.
I was an idiot, forgot to check the tyres before the first ride of the season. Went for a blast to the hills and got a slow puncture, basically in the middle of nowhere. I felt something is not round, stopped and this is what I found. Luckily I had to drive 2 km to the next village but this was my worst 2 km ever, wondering: am I killing my OZ Ultra?
Luckily the Direzza sidewall is so tough, so the wheel has no issue.

Direzza are great tyres, what others have you tried? Kumho V70a, Nankang AR-1 (heard good reviews so far), Toyo R888R?

Problem with some of these tyres, they suit different cars, weights etc, so can be an expensive gamble, but could find something cheaper like the AR-1s could work well too.

Thanks guys, yep it could be even worse, as I was flooring her heavily.

I used Toyo R888, but the Direzza is far better on heat management: does not overheat in a 20-25 mins session on track, while the R888 overheated and required a cool down lap.

Who tried Yokohama AD050 on track, pls? Whats the experience with them?

AD08r are more fast road Pav, the equivalent for more track is the A052

Agreed about R888, but what about the new R888R that have replaced the R888?
Not many people have tried Yoko A052, but the ones that have, said they are great tyres (I used to love the A048r tyres, they were as good as the Direzza, maybe the Direzza were slightly better).

OK, where to start?

There was a Hungarian Time Attack at Slovakiaring, the track what I love, not too far from Budapest! But to get there without air condition is a pain :smiley:

New Direzzas arrived for the front, R3 airbox was installed, so I was excited about the coming event!

Weather was perfect, dry and sunny, there was a chance to have a thunderstorm at the end of the day, but we were lucky!
Played with tyre pressure, added 1.7 bar to the front and rear as well, when cold.
Traffic was absolutely fine, not busy at all, only sport and street categories were on track, a joint Austrian and Hungarian time attack.

First session 2 min 47, nothing serious, just to get familiar with he track again.
Second session 2 min 43, here I added more pressure to the rears 1.8 bar to have them move a bit in corners.
Third session 2 min 41.5! New personnel best! Again added more pressure to the rears, 1.9 bar when cold, loved the way how the rear was "slipping" a bit
Fourth session 2 min 42, I think I got tired for the end of the day, but enjoyed every lap!

And the winner is in street category is me !
