Zeus @ Blyton
jeffw - 10/6/18 at 10:30 PM

Japanese Sprint Series at Blyton and the first time I've run the Zeus this year since my broken leg.

Interesting day, had some issues (starter motor failed and then the paddle shift developed a mind of its own). First timed run turned out to be my fastest because of the paddle issues.

New GoPro Session 5 which doesn't seem to cope with the vibration very well.

First run I've done in the car since last October (2 sprints in one weekend) and first time I've run the car on my own. High idle is me trying to get some engine temp. 63.71 sec which is not too shoddy but not enough corner speed.

Seemed to bog down off the line a bit, are you very high geared?

Looks like you could have a proper accident with that!

Not enough revs Russ, launches later where better. It is geared for 195MPH so may have to reduce the first 2 gears a little for sprinting.

When you see adverts with the words "not for the faint hearted" or "this is a fast car" - do you just laugh!?

That's a serious bit of kit there

First time I've driven it in the dry and the boost switch is in 4 out of a possible 11. It is certainly not for the faint
