It is now time to get the car on the race track and set what come of all the new changes. What better race track is there than the F1 Grand Prix Circuit at Silverstone.
We arrived at Silverstone nice and early, around 0630, where the Wing Pit lane was already bustling with people. The weather was damp, as it had been raining overnight, however, the forecast was set to be dry for the day.
Our main aim for the day was to get used to the changes to the car, and to learn how the new Nitron Suspension works. We took the advice from Nitron on were to start, putting all 3 settings on the suspension to full hard, and then winding them all off 10 clicks. Tyre pressure we set to 26 psi cold, looking for 36 psi hot.
Our big boost knob was set to 0 for the start of the day, which gave us around 435 BHP at the hubs.
We set out from the pit lane for our siting laps
After the siting laps, we were free to go, as it was an open pitlane event. Few gentle runs on boost
The car was sounding and feeling great.
The car handling was superb. The Nitron NTR3 was outstanding, absolutely night and day compared to the older Ohlins.
After lunch, we start turning up the boost, as the track was drying, and confidence was growing. The grip the car has is outstanding.
Once we got to 11 on the dial, which was giving us full boot at 1.6 bar, some 653 BHP at the rear hubs, we certainly knew about it. Power delivery was amazing, and not to mention fast. Even the rear grip was endless due to the Nismo Pro S rear diff on the car.
Few little flames
Our best photo of the day we think is this one below
Something great about the Link G4+ was the ability to see the logs. We set up the view we wanted, and were able to view all the parameters. The car performed faultlessly all day.
We even made a video of the day using all the footage we had, along with some great music.
Until the next time !
