    I would say if one do stupid stunts, then ANY car would flip... The buggies actually reasonably low center of gravity and wide track width.. not so easy to flip.. Actually one car flipped earlier.. after that, all the participants start driving less aggressively. The more aggressive you are, the...

    HPC TRACK DAY NOV30th

    Yes, to me crossing the white line exiting the pit lane is an ultimate no-no... Anyway, wouldn't it be faster to travel straight then to cut across and cut back in for T1????

    On Board Civic Type R FD2 in Nov HPC Event

    HPC = Fun For All at the Tracks!! Post Pics of Events!!

    The south track itself is challenging in its own way... I take the half track session as training ground to improve my lines on the 9, 11-14 combination of corners. Turn 12 is the killer, this is where you can shave 1-2 sec if you do it right.... Learning on the full track can be taunting...

    BMW E30 survey

    The 325i has about 170hp... from a 6 cyl 2.5 M20B25 engine... It has the straight line speed but lacks the chuckability/nimbleness of the 4potter 318is. The 318is though lacks the torque but made up in its free revving nature and a lighter front made it less nose heavy and very much a car to...
