This chicane was off camber and very slick all weekend.

 Re: Second Chicane
Thanks for the comments guys.

The event was an absolute blast. Apart from a great street style course to run around on I got to meet Bert (Rob Souter - black 1000 2 door sedan), Cameron and Rod (green 1200 coupe) and heaps of other Datsun lovers.

Ianey - Yes, it is my engine oil cooler set up. I hate it but it is an unfortunate necessity to keep engine oil temperatures in check. I have run out of room under the bonnet so it has to sit out the front. I mounted it in the front bar and painted it black to hopefully draw less attention to it. And, yes they are Advan 32Rs. They are a very nice tyre with plenty of grip and a progressive breakaway. I will have a better idea of their capablities after my next QR sprint on the 4th.

R-Fast - The rear sticks pretty well actually. I have an R31 LSD, Caltrac anti-tramp set up, Koni shocks and sticky tyres. There's always room for improvement but at the moment I am looking to improve front end grip and braking before working on the rear again.

Cheater - I run six degrees of negative camber on the front. Ken Graham at Accurate Suspension has had a play with the alignment recently so I'm hoping to see some god results at QR next Saturday.

Thanks again for the comments.

I ended up third in class (3 to 4 litre street registered) and equal 45th overall. I am rapt with the third as my class was very competitive with some turbocharged 1600's, a very quick supercharged mark 1 escort and a well driven 180SX amongst others competing.
