My trackday movies was (Francorchamps trackday 30/04/2014)

Edited the title to my trackdays ... for the simple reason that i can post in the same topic :wink:

Hey guys, didn't do any trackdays last year bcuz of some health problems i had from may 2013. It's getting a little better so i wanted to try a trackday so i could test my fysic :wink: And for that fysical test i booked a trackday @ my home country Belgium the F1 track Spa Francorchamps :biggrin:
Bcuz i didn't had any trackdays in 2013 and i'm not in shape i put myself in the C group (i'm normaly a B group rider).
@ noon you've got to check in at the trackday organiser to check in what group you're in (if your to fast or to slow they move you to the group that suits you best so the groups are more at the same pace).

@ the end of the 1st session of the day i was strugling with my fysic and was glad the 20 minutes were over. I was completely worn out and had 2 lay down for 30min to recover some energy :frown: after this i decided to take my meds sooner then lunch time. Took my meds and ate a snickers and a banana, 30min later we have recovered most of the energy.

Second session of the day went really well and my fysical condition was much better by the end of it, and i didn't had to lay down anymore :thumbsup:


Lunch time and rest time, after i ate my spaghetti i checked in at the trackday organisation for some info in witch group i'm riding in the afternoon ... here you go A group for you ... (me) are you sure you didn't make a mistake ... they sad my name and that was correct so no we didn't make a mistake. Like i sad before i'm a B group rider and i'm not fast enough for the A group but hey what are you gonna do about it :helmet:

Third session went more then ok, i even put in a personal best time and went from 2'54'45 from 2012 to 2'51'43 :thumbsup: but at the second last lap i heard much more exhaust noise then before and before the double left i took a quick peak at my MIVV GP can and the whole end cap with the db-killer was blown of by the power of this beast ... it whas completely ripped of from the CF mantel (see pic's) ... i've never seen something like this in my life :rant:


So this was the end of my first trackday :rolleyes:

Added the pic's and the movies, hope you enjoy them :wink:

Are those OEM wheels because they look like they are to me, but I thought all Gen 4's came with the 3 spoke design?
Yep they're the OEM trackwheels from my G3 that i'm using in my G4 the front is a direct bolt on the rear needs soms modifications :wink:

Mettet (Belgium) 19-05-2014

Not the best session of the day, i did something wrong with the cam so the previous 2 sessions didn't record :badteeth:

My fysiek whas a little better and i could manage almost 5 complete sessions, the bad news is that my lower back is killing my bcuz 15yrs ago i was a backpatient until i started to work out. Now bcuz i've got Hashimoto i can't do any fitness anymore (hope to start soon again) and my muscles are getting weaker so the back problems are returning :angryfire:
Now i've got some pills and at doctors orders i can get 9 sessions of kiné massage therapy to get it sorted out :headshake:

Here it is Mettet (Belgium) session 5 advanced :wink:

Much tighter than Spa, but it has a little corkscrew in it and lets me dream a of how awesome Laguna Seca must be :biggrin:

Lol ya I saw that cork screw it looked pretty cool. I live about 6 hrs from Laguna and have wanted to go just worried about their sound limit hate to drive all that way and then not be able to ride.

I wouldn't mind to put my cat back on (for the soundregulations) and just ride there, i can't imagine how it feels like to just take the corkscrew at laguna seca and with the speed you're getting to it (i played it on the tablet :lol:) :helmet:
Would love to just go there much less actually ride the track. Awesome.
:iamwithstupid: but if i get there i've got to ride it :thumbsup:

They have a 90 db limit. My Gen1 and Gen3 are right at their limit 89 db. My Gen4 is just a bit over at 91. Those are stock exhaust numbers and the Gen3 has a Yosh slipon. I guess you just roll off a bit as you go by the sound meter.

On a 600 Spa is no fun. You get passed on the long straights then have to make all your passes again.

The worst place for DB limit by far is Sachenring its 88db you have to have a stock exhaust and stock filter plus some bikes in certain corners you have to stay in fourth gear.
