MX3 GULF TRACK CAR KLZE



  • Bastard!!! Just about to leave and my camera battery is flat :cry: Just hope my video camera holds out for some decent footage :roll:



  • Good luck for the day mate :D



  • Hope the beast runs amazingly! Have fun :)



  • Well weather in london was quite good today so hope you had a good one!
    Also saw a Gulf gt40 kit car on way home from london about 3ish?? anything to do with you? did look good was going to try and get a pic but he floored it away lol!



  • Just got back from brands now. Weather was fine, got some video footage but quality is poor, I used my camcorder with an SD card, gutted my camera was out of battery, but there is next week to go yet :D The BMW's that were there were proper quick :( , there was alot of race prepared ones, big powered M3's, Z4's M5's, CSL's need I go on??!! I heard there was alot of drivers there with race licences too, I timed one car going round in under 54 secs, thats bloody quick, I spun off into gravel on paddock hill, was going a bit too fast, hit just over 115mph on straight before, got a bit of a bollocking but hey ho no damage to car! :roll: Someone at the end of the day rolled their car on paddock hill, driver was ok, not too sure about the car though :shock: Still not a bad day out, still not happy with k sports though, they need to be wound up a bit, to make them harder as ride is too comfortable, another thing to do this weekend :(

    Will try and post some footage up this weekend, but its not that good…......

  • @c990633733=Mooneggs:

    I love this mx-3!

    Thanks :D

    Changed oil & filter today, still trying to eliminate the sometimes noisy HLA's, have put some mobil 1 0 - 40, seems to have made it quieter…....FOR NOW :roll:

    Should be getting hold of some slicks tomorrow, will get them fitted next week, off to torque of the devil next wednesday, to get her rolling roaded, am hoping for at least 200bhp, we shall see!



  • I used to use 5W 50 fully synthetic on the track worked a treat.

    Did you find you kept loosing traction in low gears and power out of corners with under steer.

    As when you fit slicks you wont have that gradual brake away it will be all or nothing. What make slicks are you going for?



  • Car was oversteering :shock: Think I had the front suspension set up too soft which was making the back end lift up and lose its grip, have been tweaking it again, slicks are 2nd hand and buried in my mates garage, he is gonna dig them out for me today and fit them tomorrow, (he is a tyre fitter) so I don't know what make they are, will eventually buy some kankook slicks, I believe 15" slicks are difficult to get hold of??

    Will let you know what slicks they are when I find out….............



  • Thats cool, always wondered how they would handle with slicks on, never got round to fitting them myself.



  • Car is all ready to go at last :roll: Put it on trailer tonight, picked up slicks earlier, they are in not too bad conditon, michelins too :o just hope its gonna be dry on thursday! Off to 'torque of the devil' tomorrow, to finally get car dyno'd, just hope its putting out the BHP we hope it is, or I will be proper sulking LOL

    My camera will be charged up this time, so should get some good footage!!



  • barr the slicks is your car perfectly road legal? Just wondered how stripping car parts affects mots and such ??

    was on www.speedhut.com earlier and designed some nice orange dials for yours while i was bored, can add the gulf logo to them too!.

    oh good luck btw :lol:



  • Yeah she is road legal, taxed and MOT'd, just the interior stripped out, want to trailer it as its noisy inside, not that comfortable in long journeys and no stereo!! Plus if something goes wrong, at least we can get it home. You could have bought those dials for me, what with christmas coming up LOL! Will look on link in a minute. Me and my mate will try our best for the name of KLZE MX3 on thursday!! Will be taking my laptop with me tomorrow, so if hotel has wifi I will post info of rolling road on here tomorrow night…........



  • On way way home after brands, on the car ferry, they have free wi-fi, so I can post!! It was a wet day at brands hatch, absolute nightmare trying to put the power down :cry: But it was not too bad, will definately post some footage this weekend, I'm knackered, its late and I need my bed. Anyway took car to 'torque of the devil yesterday, results:-

    195.8 BHP / 180lb ft TORQUE

    Happy with the results I think….............................

    Will post up more info over the weekend,



  • Good power output there you must be pleased.
