Calling out for the experts here
We recently got our first official race track in Cyprus and so we can now have track days
My 33 was build with track days in mind, but obviously been new at this means that maybe I made wrong choices.
Making this thread so I can stop hijacking Rodger's
First time on the track, I came accross 3 major issues:
1 - Engine knocking
- I already know thats due to the advance timing. I just need to drop the engine, install my vernier cam pulleys and take it for a remap.
2 - Excessive Body Roll
- Got OMP springs and KONI dampers. However body roll is way too much.
Sputnik and Shrew suggested that I've got too soft springs on.
Looking for alternatives for my OMP springs.
I also have a rear sway bar which I will install to reduce the roll.
3 - Loads of oversteer - The side walls of my front tyres are worn out ! The car is running on 17" wheels, 205/40 R17 Michellin Pilot Sport tyres (extra load).
Need tips on propper tyres
Although I wasnt very fast in my group, I was screaming the most.
Too much noise and I wasnt going anywhere fast.
I couldnt keep in the racing lines either !
Here are a couple of pictures so you can see the amount of body roll:
The track is 2.1 Khms and my best time was 1:29.9
