Ok decided to post what i did today, it's probably abit boring but oh well, here goes..
Well this weekend i was delayed an opportunity to cruise with the club as on saturday a bloody big storm came in just as i was about to leave for the Movie drive in night.
I couldn't attend the Berry cruise that was organised today as i had something to do this morning.
I thought thats it i'll make my own circuit drive from my place mid blue mountains head up to mt victoria via great western hwy then turn on the darling cause way and follow that road to the bells line of road to North Richmond, then head to Agnes banks and up through Hawksbury Rd back to Springwood and then back home.
Well what a drive, a nice gentle cruise to mt victoria but starts getting very interesting as i drive on the darling causeway. As the rain came in i found a decent speed was at the legal speed most of the way. Lets just say that around the sweepers the XR6 wasn't hanging about. :s6:
I found that the tyre pressure i chose 35 front and 38 back was abit choppy and skittish on the bumpy roads but gave very good steering input and a slight over steer bias which adds that little bit of confidence around the corners.
But it's these kind of roads that i really felt the XR handling shows it's light even in live axle form. Later on traveling on the bells line of road i caught up to a pair of AUII Forte's one white and other maroon that were going rather quick and i have to say for a rep mobile they don't handle too badly. Unfortunately there were no other car encounters that made for some interesting driving but i still had fun. Oh yeah no one behind caught up to me during the twisties.
Overall i had a great time and it really made me feel happy after an ordinary weekend. Now i'm so hyped about next weeks Wakefield cruise.
Oh yeah another thing, BP Ultimate is definitely the best fuel going out of the 98 Ron premium fuels. Engine revs very very cleanly all the way to redline. Filled up at North Richmond at 104.9c bugger ehh.
