Glad you guys like the pictures. I'm super happy that we finally had the time to shoot them

Now take a deep breath and don't get too crazy when you see this:




Don't touch, still hot
...and stop drooling, it's mine

Default Re: Ben's MY05 WRB Type UK STI - Drift Training footage & Car dropped off #70

So yesterday I went to the Hockenheimring Driving Center for the Drift Training.
Met my Mom & Dad for Lunch and we went formation flying to the Ring.
Dad got a gift card for the training for Christmas last year and finally found a date to redeem it.
From what I can tell he had tons of fun in his SLK 55 AMG
Even mom took the sideways action quite well



As for myself, I learned a lot about the car & myself.
The STI with AD08R is sticky like instant glue even in the wet.
2nd Gear power oversteer? Nuh uh. Not without a decent clutchkick.
It was easier for me to force the car sideways on wet asphalt than on the slippery surfaces (they we're supposed to be as slippy as snowy roads but were quite narrow).

Anyway, here is the Video from the 360 Part:
https://www.youtube.com/v/MGMjpiM_WzE


Today I dropped the car off at Lars' place.
If his boss allows it, he'll put the car on the dyno at his workplace to do a before and after run with the new Header being mounted in the after run.
He'll have the car for two weeks to mount the header, test drive it (check for leaks and so on) and fab the lightweight crash boxes and hopefully the Triangle Brace for the rear.
The header itself is a piece of art
