    Yes Adrian, mashing the side of the car into the pit wall will distract most cars from passing,as the sparks and debris bounce off their bonnet and windscreen
    That might be a bit extreme but worth a try

    Is the lap timer app free? Do you need any additional techie stuff with it or u just turn it on and it times your lap?

    He has the right to have and share his opinion. The fact that his opinion differs from reality, is however irrelevant.

    No not free. For the base level one of harrys lap timer its either 7.99 or 8.99 cant remember.

    You just load the track, turn on your gps and away you go.

    You can get other versions of the app which lets you record the footage over video etc which are more expensive

    Had the car on the ramp yesterday morning, found the following

    Gearbox mount is completely sheared, will be getting replaced soon and might possibly need a drive shaft. Will be getting it properly looked at in the next few weeks. Not just going to go out and buy a shaft as it might be the bearing or cv boot/joint.

    If it is the driveshaft I might replace the 2 of them with uprated ones as I plan on upping the power quiet a bit in the next year or 2 and I dont know how well standard honda shafts will handle it.

    That sucks man. Do a few of the pictures every week as it's a nice way to keep track and the history of the car. 5 pictures every few days should get it done in 1-2months.

    You'll be delirah when it's mapped! The KPro makes a massive difference. Oodles of mid-torque and so much more responsive on the throttle.

    Aonghus recommended that I go with K100 over the Kpro as I wont be monitoring/adjusting the map myself.

    Its no slouch at the moment but cant wait to see the difference

    On Saturday I had the car down in Icetronix to change the gearbox mount, check out drive shaft/cv boots and change the gearbox oil while it was on the ramp.

    Hadn't changed the gearbox oil in 40k kms. Its much smoother now.

    My driveshafts and cv boots are perfect. They are fairly sure the heat on the track turned the existing old grease on the cv/drive shaft to liquid hence the knocking under hard cornering.

    Next up with be to get those regreased with high quality grease.

    Huge relief over not needing new driveshafts as they cost a fortune from honda

    Have my NCT sunday morning. Cant really see it failing on anything but I am sure they will find something.
