    With the amount of abortions getting around, this is a credit to the VL scene.

    Very nice car, and interesting use of an Auto. Do you find it has good power out of corners with the limited gear ratios? Does it run a high stall to overcome the gaps in gearing?

      It has incredible punch out of all corners, yes I run a small 2800 TCE converter, I tried a 3500 stall at one stage, now that was dangerous, lol, it just lit the tyres out of every turn at part throttle, lol. The motor has such a huge trq spread really compared with most circuit engines thats why it works so well.
      after the starts I only use 2nd and 3rd gears (4th has been disabled-too weak) and there is no 'hole' in the gearing at all, its quite amazing.

          Nice. What sort of boost and RPM do you get when you stall it on the line? Does it have a transbrake? (sorry for the drag related questions lol)

            No Transbrake.

              As I use circuit slicks (and after the warm up lap they arent really hot yet) I cant leave with any boost or it will just smoke the bags, but I do get close to boost against the brake, some starters are hard to judge on handicap starts (flagfall) and i sit there for a while against the brake with like 20% throttle and it can start to turn the tyres, the starters are going "wtf this cawk is doing a burnout" haha
              But its very controlable compared with a peaky high HP NA with a tall first gear and a triple plate clutch, lol. generally speaking i get a really good jump on most cars on the start line (particularly V8SC's :) )

              no transbrake - the dunlop slicks wouldnt like that at all, lol

                  With only 3rd gear what sort of speeds and RPM's do you get to? Very nice car by the way.

                      3rd gear is 1:1 so its like top gear in a race manual anyway.

                      with the 3.23 gears it did 7200 on the limiter in top at Pukekohe
                      with the 3.08 gears it revs a bit less and 'maybe' does 5kph more
                      I dont have a speedo in the car but you can work it out easy enough..

                        Very impressive car mate. Would love to see some more footage of your car as well as the rest in your field that you race in over there.

                        Well done.

                                Damn thats eerie, the sound of the Auto, in what is obviously a track car. Damn it seems fast, very impressive video.
