MAX Burger

I dragged the old Max One chaser off the shelf today. Strapped it to the DRB and went on the gymkhana trail.

The morning at Max one was busy, but this afternoon I was all alone in Max One. So I was looking for something to do to practice. Aha! Ive never run a chaser before, so here was a chance.

The old Hamburger shell was lying around so, I planted it on the DRB and went on the Tokyo Street Attack.

I've almost perfected the highway line in the reverse direction, but there are still soo many courses you can make for yourself at max one.

These are just some of what I do.

1. High speed line.  (Currently most people only run this in the anti clockwise direction.)
2. Out Lane
3. In Lane
4. Out In Combo
5. Highway Line
6. OUT clip line
7. Deep Clip Line
8. Nascar Line
9. Centre Line
10. Hairpin Line
11. Technical Chase Line
12. Highway plus in field
13. Large Setting circle.
14. Small Setting circle.

If you are alone or with friends you can also run the above in reverse direction and adding gymhkana cones for variation.

I usually run a Figure 8 reversing direction in some manner with a Highway and low way combo that varies over 20 Laps or so.

I never get bored driving around Max One.  In some ways tandem can get a bit boring because most people run the same line over and over. (maybe this is not the case in many countries.)

So some games have started with regular battle partners.

1. Forced Exit to the highway
2. Soft Push.
3. Rear Tap.
4. Door Marking is the latest I'm trying to implement with the front wheel..


Some of the regulars. Marine-san and I.

Slashing away. He runs a very fast line.

Takeuchi-san wears the I love 180sx sticker on this car.

Dangerous liason here. My yokomo FCD gear seat cracked... A few too many impacts... but it was replaced and I was underway again. I also had a wire drop off and it was a comedy show trying to solder without the power switched on! haha.

Others practicing.

My practice of 8 hours included a tyre test. Starting with my regular Kazama Premium on Bronze TE37SL.

And I tried these RC926 HDPE KN-DT05 tyres again. N-Model +12 and +9 with spacers.

I had really good results with them today, but last time I felt they were a bit slippery. I was a lot more aggressive with them and it seemed to be ok.  

 They seemed to like a good feed of power.

Great imagery. The red 86 is soon to be retired. I still like it's uniqueness.

I also tried these old tyres that I don't know what they are. They have a little more grip than my regular tyres. Highway excursions were easy with these.

These rims I've had for ages... they kind of work? What do you think?

They certainly have some dish. +12 on the front with spacer removed.


Looks like an old Celica. I think the 86 looks like a ZZ Celica from many angles.

An interesting look for sure.
