dc5 track day and prep

so I took the dc5 on track for the 1st time since owning it and wow these things can handle, brakes just keep going and lsd just keeps pulling.

went with a few mates, same guys I went to the ring with last year in my ek9.

Rockingham was the chosen track with its full international circuit open, and skid pan to play with.
open pit lane 9/5 come and go as you please.

anyways i did some prep for its 1st outing, ill let the pics do the talking.



1st job was to ditch the 18s, you can see the famous dc5 parcel shelf in that pic haha.


rear strip plus harnesses






few other bits


full service and comp test while I had the plugs out, shes healthy.






magnetic plugs all round




old stuck to new ^

decat manifold




stripped and cleaned up front brakes, replaced rears. new 5.1 fluid and braided lines.









caliper clearance with 16s



cars already riding on tanable lowering springs



itg induction kit



shes low when jacking now haha




mc stopper, improves brake feel






engine torque damper, ETD


poly engine mount inserts including gearbox box













wanted to get more done but time and money are always major factors.



soooooo the track day, we was blessed with a great Sunday day on a cold February morning.











quick wash while this guy grinds the crap out of his bosses paint job lol





ready for the sighting lap


skid pan que















my mates pradas after 25 mins
















learn that 3 mile lap haha



lunch check over



my tyres



all parked up at the end of the day







1st place for me lol





179 miles to a full 50L vpower tank lol



and my favourite pic of the day


great track, reminds me of Bedford aerodrome size wise but with the width of Silverstone to play with. its hard on the brakes as your doing 125mph every lap coming off the banking down to 70mph then 30mph for a very sharp left. dc5s have brake cooling ducks from factory so they held up very well, my alloys got so hot though the center caps deformed and poped out in the pit lane garge by them selves lol. won't go back in now too out of shape.
