    you Vic guys get hesitant about taking the Zed out in such heat??? I know I do and I only have an NA. Maybe I'll go put a few bags of ice in the engine bay. Actually, they wont fit..:)CheersJEDI-77

    I'm doing some track work tomorrow

    So, I will have to get some octan booster to prevent pinging, as mine is a TT and usually runs on 100RON in Japan.Winton race way by the way.

    My Z is not a happy camper in this

    sort of heat, the heat soak on the turbos kills boost and makes the induction noise sound like some one turned on a wind tunnel fan.

    It was 46 where im from yesterday

    and last weekend my friend thought it would be a good idea to get dynod in 40degree heat :-0 my Zdoes ok in the heat, the temp is right in the middle and i do NOT get into boost whatsoever

    RedZedMikey RZM should now be DZM

    No problems for RedZed >>>

    showed 44 on the ambient at 4pm and the news said 44.1 max. Noticed a fair few other cars parked with bonnets up tho. Just didn't hit the loud pedal hard, presumably power would be down.

    5 - 6 laps before the temp went up to "H"

    It was a good day. I kept up with a V8 Monaro down the straight. So much for their 235kw. After 5 to 6 laps I came in as the temp guage started to creap up. No sens in blowing the thing up over a bit of fun.
