And then we got to use the whole backtrack.

Felt fast, and with teh track set-up ended up leaving the car in second for most of it, just bouncing of the rev limiter at times. Gotta love the TRD gearbox.....yeehaa

Have a look at some of the autocross stuff I have put up on YouTube. It's what our cars are made for. I have beaten lots of Much more powerful cars on autocrosses. Much better cornering and braking make a good 7 a top car even if down on power.

Sealed autocrosses are easily my favourite event type.

Jealous of the TRD box though...

Looking good Matt, not sure the white guards suit your car though! Really like the back track set up, so much fun in a 7, still not very keen on the twisty autocross stuff, but that is probably due to my crap driving not being able to reach the handbrake easily (might be better with new seats though).

I will get the car out for the CCC club day and will put Katrina in the hot seat too.

You need to make your handbrake work like his as well.

Unfortunately in my case it's nothing to do with physical leverage... For some reason (and I haven't delved into this) the handbrake won't work unless I tap the footbrake as well... There's almost no way to put enough oomph onto the handbrake to lock the rear up without tapping the brake.

And that's AFTER I added a 6 inch extension to the handbrake to make it easier...

Either way, you'll be far better than I would - my Caterham has the original handbrake placement (under the passenger side scuttle) and I can't even reach it with the harnesses done up tight :!: :roll:
