There was a very empty highway road last evening, no cross-winds at all and I kept my foot down a bit longer this time: 219,6 km/h or 135.5 mph:

Actually it was just fine, even without the much needed extra caster I still need to adress; I even had time to check the speedo :)
No wind, flat road also helps a great deal.

Just back from a 'last-minute' Ring visit. It was a great sunny day, not too busy and we had great fun. Did 4,5 lap today with a passenger!

Now that is a great shot. Sure wish I could run over to the ring take a lap or two.

Well, you could plan a holiday around a Nurburgring visit (like I did) :rolleyes: :D

Gonna bore you with some more shots I found on the web:

Wally - your car has made me wonder if I should ditch my widened wings and go with some wide and flared...

And the more that I look at it, the more I like the duck tail too.

Is your airdam a CSP one or a home drilled?

Hi Wally

Great photos. What is the smoke haze around the car from?

What sort of speeds do you get down the long straight before start/finish line?

Its the right front tire rubbing inside the fender...:o
I already ordered some coil-overs with adjustable lower spring perches.
Funny thing is, I never had that on any track or event I drove before. The Ring surely brings out any imperfections, even small ones. Running with all sorts of luggage in the front trunk and a passenger also helped squeeze down the bump stop beyond normal limits probably.

What sort of speeds do you get down the long straight before start/finish line?

As you may know just about after the last bridge crossing, your supposed to slow down for the gates at the start/finish/exit point and max speed signs are present, but I usually like to keep my foot down till right at the bridge where I cross at about 190 km/h or just under 120 mph. The ' straights' just after Hocheichen and after Aremberg are also very high speed parts. Car stability is essential there as 120 mph on a straight flat highway is soooo different then anywhere on the Ring... and the official straight passed start/finish is never possible to run full by due to the Touristenfahren start/finish halfway that straight. Pity though.
