Heres some pics/vids I took at the Hillclimb yesterday, was great fun! Justinspiderholden entered his B16 Civic with Toyo Proxes street tyres and was only .2 of a second slower than a MX5 with Toyo Proxes semis!

Our pit neighbour, an open wheeler using a honda twin carb engine, was having issues though, Justins Civic was faster! The husband was not allowed to drive it after a while due to his helmet not having enough space between the top roll bar so the wife was racing it. He then got out his dads Lotus

Nice post. I've always wanted to do a hillclimb. Just concerned about my car's lack of power & very close barriers! When is the next event?

I love watching the European series, the cars (& drivers) are insane!

Don't worry about the Lack or Power, or the Barrier just get out there and thrash it

Yesterday we were out at Huntley Hill again for Justin to have another shot at beating his time/MX5s

After boiling in the sun last time we picked up one of these, not as cool as some of the other guys fold out ones but it did the job. We also decided to only bring snacks as they have a little bbq/store thing with a sausage sizzle which is good.

It sprinkled for maybe half an hour in the morning, which was enough to wet the track to cause traction issues, probably a good thing for Justin as he was on street tyres.

Yes he did end up getting a faster time than the MX5 with semis from last event for all the MX5 fan bois out there lol

She then upgraded to the floor

http://i11.photobucket.com/albums/a166/anastasios/20120520_104209.jpg

Justin being scrutineered, and one of our neighbours, a really nice supra. Justin ended up beating the supras best time by a second!

The owner/driver would be pretty devo after spending 4k on KW coilovers to be beaten by a 1.6 civic

http://i11.photobucket.com/albums/a166/anastasios/20120520_121136.jpg

This Cruze was also in Justins class, AWD 1.5l, 2 secs slower than the civic

Our other neighbours, a Swift with a GTI engine running 18psi (did not run as he said he could not get traction, he ended up being a second driver for his mates evo). Evo had some lowdown stickers on it, not sure if he is from here

This LC Torana turned up and was loud and angry as hell. He eventually blew his engine. Justin beat him by half a second! note that Justin is on street tyres with a B16 and this is a 6cyl on slicks

I was very interested to see how this 4AGZE Nova(AE92) and 180 went up the hill, the Nova ended up beating the 180 by a second and Justin was only 1.5 secs slower than the 180 which I thought was surprising

Nice photos,
I was driving the 180sx.
I was a little surprised it wasnt quicker but having said that...I did 2 wet runs 1 damp run and only 1 dry run...
We only took it down there so my missus could have her first run in motorsport and she did a great job!
Car had no traction on less than average road tyres but was fun to drive!
Great job in the civic and well done to WSCC for a well run day!
Cheers Matt.

Hey Matt

We were wondering if the 180 was owned by anyone on the forum :)

Tell us more about your KE30

I think Taz has some video still to upload

I can't wait for the next one on the 17th June

Hopefully will have DC2R box next time really want to drop into the 30's

Prancer
22-05-12, 02:18 PM
cool yea more about ke30! fingers crossed my 71 will be ready on the 17th

your car was fun to watch going sideways up the hill then around the first left

yea i do have some vids to edit

what is done to your 180?

SHYLANMOTORSPORT
22-05-12, 02:39 PM
Hey guys,
Thanks.
The Ke30 is in the build.
Its a designated race car mainly for circuit racing but will do hillclimbs too.
Its getting alot of panel work done at the moment and the engine is 4AGE which is at at the builders.
All the suspension was done here by us at WSP.
Its a coilover front with s4 rx7 brakes. Still leaf rear.

The 180 is stock apart from a front mount and a tune.
Still on standard boost with std injectors and air flow.
Has coilovers and adjustable rear arms.
I have done the s14 brake upgrade and put type x seats in.
Thats about it!
Its for sale on here if anyone is interested! :(

I watched the incar of the first wet run last night and I was turning right the whole way into turn and and the whole way through turn one.....and had a huge moment across the finish line....like i said grip is a serious issue!
Honestly I expected to be in the 29's maybe 28's as the gemini does a 32 up there...so I was a little dissapointed...
Sarah wants to run the 17th but I dont think we can make it...SHe cant wait till her TA22 celica is finished so she can run that...
I may have created a monster!

Cheers Matt

down the track I would like to start building a 3sge for it.

What kind of 16v? and why have you decided to go webers?

SHYLANMOTORSPORT
22-05-12, 03:42 PM
Small port bottom end big port top end.
Decided to go webbers for a few reasons....
1 old school is cool

3 I can tune them and fiddle without a computer
