Awesome cars and work there, a credit to you all. I'm helping a good friend up here who races in the improved production series, thinking myself of building something up again as Lakeside is a green light again and get club level racing again.

#25 is too pretty to be a race car!!! (and thus get the crap kicked out of it)

Great work. Those are some awesome builds.

i really like what youve done here!

im buying a ke25, but people tell me the suspension on them is bad because of the old styled leaf springs.
i was wondering how you got around this?
is it hard?

sorry if this doesnt make sense, im 17 and new to cars....

oh i live in adelaide too, i would love to see your car out on the track one day!
let me know will you?!

cheers anyway.

The rear suspension isnt the best compared to later IRS coil suspension, it can be made to work well with reset leafs and decent shocks, Also a panard rod and antiroll bat can be adapted for the rear

A video of my KE25 with a 4AGE 20V BT round Mallala... As you will see I'm very very soft through the esses and soft on the brakes everywhere, there is a good 2 secs a lap there I rekon.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aRBUMgmuQUw


here another vid of a Audi RS4 :tu: doing hot laps round Mallala, the lap times are amazingly close with the rolla.... both around the 1.25 mark to do a lap, the audi is driven by one of audis high performance driving instructors though, not some fat guy with a mid life crisis :lol:
