down force

Hi buddy, Im pushing 645 hp and expecting that weather this Saturday as well, feel you:( Do you have any gut feel about the 2 front canards affecting your cornering capabilities? Do you have understeer, if not how have you fought against it, 4wd controller etc?

you should be more worried about oversteer on a standard ATTESA R32 GTR.

Using a TSC will allow you to dial in a good balance or even understeer compared to the tail happy standard nature of an R32 GTR.

I'm hazzarding a guess that the cannards above are just for looks.

I see

That confirms my doubts about a fixed transfer case: My ATTESA has not been working as stock, Hicas is disabled but my t-case has been tampered some how in Japan. Car is extremely hard to push anyway except a straight line. For now I ve been driving it with extensive throttle usage. Im about to switch to a a OSG-kit prepped gearbox and during that op we ll look into the t case as well. Ive got a Ruzic controller, but its useless if there is something mechanical done to the tcase I suppose.

Looking good mate. Nice weather for it too! What track is it?
It never stopped raining all day:(
The track is Mondello-Park.

Was this the MLR Track Day at Mondello...??

Nice Pic's... Pants weather...:thumbsup:
Yeah it was the MLR day, but a bunch of the GTROC lads were there as well:thumbsup:
nice looking car :) white is the best colour :)

Looks a bit front heavy with all the cannards etc though - needs a big gay wing to even it up :D
Thanks mate:) I was thinking the same, but it's hard to find a nice wing that will suit the car and compliment the front end. Not going to rush into anything just yet;)

Adam is right the canards are just for looks but act well as rain deflectors too:D
One thing that would transform the car is a torque split controller. This is something im definately going to invest in in the future.
I did notice quite a bit of understeer too at times, but it's easy to correct that with a bit of throttle;)....:D

Heres a sample vid of a few laps:
