Pics+vids, up and down Lake Mountain

Did a run up and down a twisty today after it had rained.

I left DSC on, light was flashing a lot, would have been very difficult without it.

When I got to the top I had a look at the brakes, they were red hot (you know that purple look during daylight) but I felt no change in pedal feel.

I did not inspect the brakes after the run back down the mountain, that would have been a pretty big workout for them but again, I felt no difference in brake feel.

Still working on the camera mount, it made some unwanted noise today.

Up:



Down:

Liked your videos. The looks fantastic in the pictures. The dirt makes it more aggressive. A picture from the front also would have been good.

Here you go:

I made the mount using:

A piece of 18mm square aluminium rod
A door stop plugging one end
A chair leg plug at the other end
A tripod mount attached with a bolt and washer
Two U-bolts
Four wing nuts
Some duct tape
Aquarium tubing

Hopefully the pictures show how I made it. Just a bit of drilling and measuring here and there, didn't take long and cost around $25 (including $18 for the tripod mount I think). Aquarium tube around the U-bolts and duct tape around the rod protect the headrest bars from scratches.

As you can hear, it still needs work and I seriously hope I don't go sideways into a tree, I don't think that door stop would stop the rod penetrating my skull!!!

I noticed you stayed in one gear most of the time, was it 3rd or 4th?

Great work, the engine sounded a bit on the angry side.

3rd gear pretty much all the time, down to around 70kph for tight turns I think, 120kph most of the time, probably fastest around 150-160 in 4th......Maybe more, wasn't really watching speedo.

It was wet so I used bugger all revs, probably highest I got to was 6500. Thats the crazy thing about this engine....2000rpm left!!!

Hopefully the video demonstrates the broad range of useable torque in this engine.




Disclaimer: Thats a complete lie, the car never went above 100kph.

Besides the rattle, it seems to work very well. I would have thought that the picture might have been a little shakey with the camera mounted to the seat, but yours seems very steady indeed. Have you taken it over rough roads?
