Hampton Downs - first time on the track

Couple of videos to see Robbie taking Borg on his first track run at Hampton Downs. I'm "squealing like a girl" as I film it. Sorry they're very shaky - I was holding the camera freehand - must try to get a dash mount for the next time.

YouTube - RIPS BORG - First Run at Hampton Downs - Part 1

YouTube - RIPS BORG - First Run at Hampton Downs - Part 2

We temporarily leave the track at 1.50 in the second video!

More videos taken from trackside to come soon!

It was my first ever time around that track, in someone elses pride and joy and the understeer was just rediculaus, add in stock suspension and stock brakes and its no wonder it was all over the place and slow into and around the turns, great fun once out of the turn though.

Real shame we didn't take a camera in the car the time I went out with Brett, far more familiar with the car by then and the 4wd drifting was great fun, lol

Ye at first i was thinking you was driving like a pussy in the bends but then i could see the front end pushing on. Also you was breaking really early so it did cross my mind that the car was on stock breaks.

I had a quick look at the build thread to see if my theroy was correct or if you are just shit LOL.

So anyway, the car really needs some better breaks, suspension and tyres. Is the borg going to get them? Personally i think its a shame that the car is being let down on the track by these parts . Then again does it need them if only going to be a road car? does robin plan on tracking the car?

No, I decided whilst in NZ that Borg was just too beautiful to risk on track or drag strip, and he more than proved his ability to kick the quarters, and trounce the trackers, so I'm keeping him as a Street Sleeper - I really don't want to change him any more, and what he has now will be more than good-enough for street work. Next project will be much more suited to track work

The 2nd video is classic...

Robbie putting the boot in..

Robin : Braaaaaaaaaaaaaake

Robbie: Just Relax mate

Robbie : You'll just make it worse.

Robin, mate I reckon once you get used to that power you'll want to sort the suspension out just to see what the capabilities of the car are. Its an addictive bug !

Best way to describe it was it was like driving on grass, especially into the corners, I even went onto the grass at one point to check the grip difference and you can see the red car didn't pull away F all while we were on the grass thats how bad it was!!! hahaha.

Good brakes, good suspension, good tyres, good driver would = sub 1;10s I'm sure.

^^^^ I bet glen could have driven it better, but only when he has his(carls) lucky underpants to sniff. They seem to have the same effect as when popeye eats a can of spinach.

Considering there was a mk1 escort that does 1:09's with a dirty old vg30et you would hope a well built car would match it

I did say well built - mines just a collection of old parts

A bit more on suspension, and a lot more talent would be required

I did take it's unofficial record as being highest power run on the dyno (same tuner) before mine started exceeding torque limit.
