I WAS DOWN AT CRAIL TODAY WITH MY CAR DONE A 11.9 SEC RUN
THEN MY SINGLE PLATE CLUTCH COULD NOT TAKE NO MORE IT
WAS OK OFF THE LINE BUT WHEN I PUT IT INTO 2ND,3RD,4TH
GEAR IT WAS SLIPPING BIG TIME.
WHEN IT COOLED DOWN IT IS OK.
THIS CLUTCH IS OK ON THE ROAD BUT THAT IS IT.

GUYS JUST TO LET YOU KNOW MR JEREMY CLARKSON WAS HERE ON THURSDAY DRIVING THE JUN SKYLINE FOR HIS NEW VIDEO.
HE WAS DRIVING THE CAR AND IT RAN A 10.4 SEC RUN

SO FOR ALL THE TORQUE LOW DOWN THAT MY CAR HAS THE JUN CAR WAS
1.5 SECONDS FASTER OVER 1/4 MILE IT HAS TO HAVE BIG POWER
AND TO RUN IT THEY HAD TO TURN DOWN THE BOOST A BIT SO THEY TOLD ME TODAY

JUN SKyline!

Hi Keith,

Good time that considering tha state of your clutch..

I mention some time ago on the board that the JUN car ran 10.3 at Crail and this shows that the car is consistent is nothing else!!

I think around 750-800 bhp is required for a low 10 pass!!

Next time your attending please give ma a shout!!

Cheers

jun times a 10.04 run

Clarckson Crashes At Crail But Colin Greery Sets 10.04 TimeJeremy Clarckson was hear filming for new video to be out later this year

David Jones kindly let Clarkson rip up his 2 beloved cars at the Airfield Thursday13th June,but he spun the RS 200 in to a tattie field(no damage only cosmetics).The Skyline however set a blistering 10.04 time down the 1/4 mile in the hands of Colin Greery,this is the quickest time a 4wd has set at the track and one to aim for on the 11th of August.I would however point out that the Skyline was on hard compound tyres and fully laden with lardy seats ,which I do believe are being removed and a stripped out version should be good for the low 9s. We shall see very soon.

Jun Car

Keith.

I have an entry for the '10 of the best', at Elvington, but would be willing to stand down for the Jun car to be able to run. As this car seems that is will be staying in the Uk for the time being it would be superb if he was to compete.

Can you pass my offer onto the owner please Keith.

Jun Car

I too would love to have the Jun car representing Skylines at the Top 10 Day.

I called Greersport earlier this year and asked them and they said it was too far away (now it's nearer since in York) and that the car was being prepped for sale, so they didn't want to attend.

Keith, could you twist their arm please, we can certainly make a space somehow (especially since Mike with 3.0 OSG hasn't paid and never answers emails!!!).

Guy

PS If anyone knows Mike Diamond, can you please tell him to contact me.

May be able to help!

Guy,

When you say Mike Diamond do you not mean Michael Diamantes as he has the 3.0 Giken car!!
He is also a regular participant in the Maccjap club and you could try Andrew Rowe who runs the maccjap club @ his e-mail adress which is [email protected]

HTH

Regards

Mike

Stu,

It is the same Mike D, although his name is Diaman......., he often signs it Mike Diamond, I guess it's just easier....

GLEN WHEN YOU CROSS THE LINE IT DROPS AWAY
NEED GOOD BRAKES TO STOP AS THERE IS NOT A LOT OF ROAD

Would be nice

to get a few of us 'Southerners' up their sometime.

I'm sure it wouldn't be a problem as I know a few of us diehards don't mind travelling past the Midlands for some GTR activities :D .

Does Crail have an online opening times.
