Rudskogen trackday October - clip

Post by Argenta » Mon Nov 12, 2018 5:13 pm

Had a great day at Rudskogen Norway with the Alfa Romeo Club a few weeks ago.

That looks a little more challenging if you have an ‘off’ in the wrong place.

Thanks for sharing

Thanks for posting, enjoyed the vid.

Those rear tyres are doing an awful job! I've never seen a Z4M so keen to oversteer in the dry after a few laps, even if it was damm cold!

Thanks for sharing, my instructor would tell you to keep both hands on the wheel unless your shifting. :thumbsup:

Looks like you had a very fun day out :driving:

Great video. It makes me wanna take mine on a track day!

Your Z seems a little 'understeery' in some corners. Have you removed the alignment pins at the top of the front struts and pushed the tops inwards? I couldn't believe the difference that little change made towards culling understeer in mine! Subtle, but noticeable. And free mod!

That looks terrible handling tbh in the dry on a nice smooth track. Are the tyres goosed? It's grip or pressure related as it's not like you were going mental or overloading the steering grip at turn in.
It appears to be pushing off track at fairly average speeds.
And echo comments about both hands on wheel, at all times unless swiftly changing gear.
Well done for getting out there though and enjoying it.

Oh yes the camber pins are pulled for max camber and the rear is set to 0deg toe, basically CSL settings.
Tire-squeel is mostly 4 wheel-drifting. Actually the only understeer was on the rough undulations while breaking, which I assume is down to both the dry old (2009?) tires and std shocks.
