Played with an SSB Mini at Sebring

Postby maitland » Wed Sep 07, 2011 4:11 pm

One of our Customers Purchased an SSB Mini we'll be slowly turning into a STU car with him. Hopefully run close to a 2:21 in STU trim on (the stock supercharger and oe non jcw pulley). Anyway he invited me down to help him through it's first test weekend in SSB trim. We had some issues (namely the brakes were terrible) and we spent a lot of time before the enduro working on the car. After spending a day of teething we got the car fairly well sorted. It was a little pushy for my liking but it suited him well and I got to drive the 2nd half of the Enduro. Anyway car was awesome and I turned a 2:39.4 in the morning warm up with it but only managed a 2:40 during the race since I jumped in with the thing heat soaked, brake pedal on the floor and tires shot! Anyway Lots of fun! SSB is a super fun class.

Ahh, Sebring. Been ages since I've driven that track, but still remember every inch of it. Some day soon I'll get back out there.

Nice vid (minus whatever was rubbing on the mic) and fantastic driving. 8)
