    My experience with this combo was very brief last night but it should provide for some exciting racing. Btw, congrats on the win Wolf!

    For those that want to take less than 5 minutes to find this car amongst the 20 pages of Nissans. Post oil change PP is 527. Correct me if I'm wrong, but SS tires becausee it's not a race car?

    And I now have 36 Nissans... 20141105_072820.jpg

    This combo choice management is working beautifully. We're finally getting new cars coming out consistently bringing awesome new challenges and making snail a new thing every week.
    Although I'm not racing right now, I'm taking part in some practicing sessions and loving this sense of new fresh air.
    Good job.

    I don't want to guess a lap time for this one, but it should be slower than the WSR. How much though?

    I'll bet it's faster than the WSR. It's more than twice the ponies. Hopefully it can haul its butt out of the wet paper bag and down those straights at a respectable speed.

    I ran an out lap and 1 hot lap and ran 2:02.4. Take that for what it's worth, which is probably null.

    It is faster than the WSR when driven right.. A lot of draft makes it very fast! But not by much!


    Take the wisdom of the Dragon! :dopey:

    @CoachMK21
    you can now sell 35. This one is one of the best ones!


    And in case some of you are curiouis as to why this one is a Road Car.. here is some history of the car.

    Nissan R390 GT1 Road Car

    Joe's explanation is good. In my close to 20 yrs of racing GP bikes I can confirm the above. If I started to lose the front end while my knee was on the ground, I could more often than not lift the bike up slightly with my knee and save the low side crash. However, when I lost traction at the rear and the bike stepped out quickly, I more often than not found myself doing my other passion, flying!

    I don't want to be a pest, but I also need the post oil HP. Me and my PS3 will be separated for few more days.

    The problem with the approximate 2:00 minute lap time is that it is on that pivot of 5 laps = 10 min and 6 laps = 12 min. Therefore, the important number is not the average fastest lap times for the mid-Div drivers, but the average clean lap times they will sustain over the duration of the race. The first lap will be 6-10 seconds longer than the rest, which means you have to average 5 laps at less than 1:58 to finish a 6 lap race under 12 minutes. If I put the Average at 2:00, then the race is 6 laps and 12 min. If I put the average at 2:01 the race is 5 laps and just over 10 minutes (like we had with the WSR). The rule is to rather go over 12 min than to go under 10 minutes for the mid div durations. For now I will put it at 2:00 and we can see what happens on Thursday night practice.

    I raced very briefly on a local level but have worked in the Mcy/ATV/Jetski industry for 20 years. Where/when and what level did you race?

    Raced modern and vintage GP from '81 to '99. Amateur and Pro level. All tracks in Canada from Gimli Manitoba east to Nova Scotia with R.A.C.E. and the VRRA. In the US it was mainly east with ahrma, AMA/CCS at Mid Ohio, Gratton, Road America/Elkhart Lake, Roebling Road, Loudon and Daytona.
    This is my first set of leathers showing the results of trying to find the limits! These are Manx Leathers made in The Isle of Man.

    Thanks to everyone for taking the time to work on a solution for this. Should save us a few more minutes which will be much appreciated.

    This week's combos sound great, even if the WSR was eliminated. But either way I won't be here so make it a good week and I'm gonna vote Combo 2 off pre-maturely. It's been there two weeks now and we need something new and refreshing.

    Me and Lobban knew we were going to get along when we first met, as we both quoted Zappa in one of our first conversations, scary!

    I got the Peu's numbers from @nmcp1 post, thanks. Sorry for the misunderstanding there.

    I need the post oil Horse Power for the fast Datsun..... For a bunch of motor heads I'm surprized that we only quote PP's

    Unfortunately, if you don't race your vote won't count.
