Here's my first outing in STU - the car is damned good, the driver is rusty as an old farm implement left out all winter in the back forty...




Cheers,

Charlie

Man, that boxster was six seconds faster over a roughly one minute course. That's HUGE!. Will be interesting to see how MINIs fare in STU in other local events

Gollum is nowhere near the STU rules limit - a Quaife and some good coil-overs are what's missing, 'cause 9" rims and at least 245 tires seem hard to do. . The e-Diff and the Sport Suspension springs with Bilstein B8 shocks are good. Ride height is stock.

I am not a fast enough driver to reach the car's' limits in optimum fashion. If I can get Brian Levesque to share it with me, then I will know. The car is better than I am for sure.

So be aware of the nature of the data....

Cheers,

Charlie
