Just ask one of the marshals who will hold back the queue and let you out for a few laps at your own pace
I cannot be bothered to read the 1st post so i'm going to ask a question that has been covered in the 1st post. I need the post count !!
Please do not be shocked if you are teased as a result. Its all about the seat time , not the post count !1!11!!1
Do i need a welded diff / Fancy JDM 2-way ?
a diff that locks both wheels will help - however its not vital for you to come along and have FUN
Do I need lots of power/ Stage6.9chip/ SuperDuperHybridTurbo/ 2JZ
