    ^Isn't that clubsprint?

    RP968 would be killer on the ring with it's active suspension.

    Where do the all the tyres end up from this? I'd like to get my hands on some used/scrubbed A050 mediums. Too inexperienced to buy into a new set.

      Be pretty funny seeing some of these cars trying to get through the carousel at the Ring with those ridiculous front wings.

          I'm tempted to drive the green car down if it is ready and I'm not too busy with work.

Andre only had a few sessions in the car on the short tracks, before having a crack at the National Circuit during the lunch break of the Time Attack event. He recorded a 1:04.03, which bettered the previous record of 1:04.06 previously held by Simon Wills in a Holden Reynard 94D.

                    Doesn't break the track's lap record. Lap records are set in races. That old Formula Holden time was set on the last lap of a 22 lap race.

                    It probably isn't the outright record for the track either - you'd assume someone went faster in qualifying or at some test day somewhere along the way. Those times aren't recorded anywhere because like the MCA time, they don't count for anything.

                      I know that's the usual stipulation behind an official lap record, but given that Time Attack cars don't "race" as such, they will never be in a situation to post a lap time in those conditions, and therefore never been officially accredited with a lap record. Regardless of whether or not it's officially a lap record, it's an extremely quick time that puts the performance capabilities of these cars into perspective, and shows where MCA are at with the development of their car.

                      Couldn't afford the extra time off work, so flying down on Thursday morning.

                        Thought maybe one above that, i guess suzuki under is a good example with his old car, using stock strut tower's and everything you can buy off the shelf and build yourself. hardly a custom tube framed car.

                        none the less, i feel i have jumped ship a bit in regards to my thoughts on the situation and i'm enjoying the tilton's and MCA's,ect even though there is only like 10% of the orginal car left

                          I'm honestly amazed they're not miles faster than the old Formula Holdens race pace over 1 lap. 1200bhp/980kg, wider (all up) stickier tyres that will only do one hot lap at a time, and utterly insane amounts of aero.

                            I think it just shows how much of a difference it makes to truly build as a race car from the ground up. Despite the massive engineering that goes into Time attack cars, having a huge cabin originally designed to sit 5 people (uncomfortably) is a huge chunk of a compromise.

                              Letís not forget TA cars are on yokie 050 street legal tyres and not on race slicks. Be no doubt of time to be had on a full slick.

                              If I still find myself gainfully unemployed by WTAC, the plan is to pop down and support the big fella in his Vic Time Attack RX7. Apparently I can help with data analysis. Time to watch some motec webinars and practice on some of my data 😁

                                yeah slicks that had done 22 race laps when they set that record. I doubt the hammerhead would be faster on a set of slicks in that sort of hard compound, let alone after 22 consecutive race laps worth of wear and degradation.
