Spent the day at Mallala today. Spun out 7 times and best time was just under 1:24  :scratchchin: I think I can go faster, but need more training..maybe even stiffer sway bars. Covered around 200kms and eventually my engine was close to over heating as the track temp hit 35C. Managed to put the car into a spin down the back straight and that was scary but was far from any danger.. :faint:

Aside from an F430, I was the only non-porsche there  :doh:

Am loving the car!  :D

i've got to check with YSS if anyone had pics or vids of me spinning out! :)

I spun out at turn 1 and 2 a lot as I was trying to take it a lot faster...need to go back to the track  :mischief:

Having an instructor (Peter Fitzpatrick sp??) throughout the day was great, helped us all improve our times.

Just finished checking out the car for scratches and there were none...phew!!  :tilt: thank you invincible car bras!

It sounds like you would have done more track k's on the car than road k's! :-)

I'm just wondering if fitting the car with stiffer sway bars may make it too stiff though, making it more prone to snap spinning. I'd imagine it is already fairly firm on the max sport setting. How about trying semi slick tyres? As it sounds like it could be a grip issue rather than a suspension issue, the street tyres getting over heated and losing their grip.
