    So most lads here are into getting loose but who has a passion for grip?? Any thoughts on the future of it?

    I myself like grip racing alot! In particular time attacks.

    Iv got my car set-up for it and its so fun getting back to the pits and checking your times.

    All i need is some decent rubber.

    The best mods i have done so far for grip is a kaaz lsd....the amount of traction you get coming out of the corner is amazing! Comibne that with a set of semi-slicks and you will be having some serious fun.

    Ive only done one hillclimb was a couple months ago was a great day and relatively cheap. I will be entering into as many as i can next yr. Ive been doing motorhkanas and autocross at my local car club (Central North Coast Sporting Car Club) this yr. Looking to move into something a little more serious.

    Started sprints this year at QR and will hopefully make all the SAS rounds at QR next year. Then I need a silencer and I'll be out at lakeside aswell. Also started doing motorkhanas don't know if you count them as 'grip' which is the fastest way around but not necceserly the funnest.

    i run in the mountain view hillclimb series held in grafton...managed to come 4th for the season in my class behind a 7age ke70 and a mental r2000 escort....

    I drive my street car so its hard to get my shit together to be super competative

    i would love to one year go nuts and get some rubber and do the whole state Hillclimb sesries.

    Iv done a hill climb and went to my local race track to try grip last year in my mini, great fun and you learn heaps about driving!

    Time attack looks quite cool, wouldn't mind to try that out!
