That’s 220km of pure twisties. Woohoo!!
A total of 8 cars met up at our usual rendezvous point before heading off. There were:-
2 Nissan Skyline 25GT-t
1 Nissan Skyline GT-R V-Spec II
1 Subaru Impreza Sti Ver. 8
1 Mazda RX-7
1 Toyota MR2
1 BMW E34 5 series (with 1JZ-GTE heart!)
Pic 2: The cars
Yeap. There was a continental. This is the second time a continental make joined our drive. The 1st one was the BMW E60 5 series before DILYSI was started way back in October 2006. The difference is that this E34 has a Japanese heart. LOL :D
This drive is also my getting-to-know-you session with my new tyres. I've only covered 500km in 'em and have not come to grips with it (pun intended). Furthermore, after fitting in the tyres I find the car felt a bit weird when I chuck it into corners. Can't exactly put my finger to it yet.
I was quite worried about the weather report as it predicted clouds in the morning and rain in the afternoon. We were pleasantly surprised to see glorious clear skies during the whole duration of the drive. Rain only started in mid afternoon by which we're already back in Kuala Lumpur. :)
Pic 4: The cars at Frasiers Hill
The drive from Frasiers Hill to Bentong and Janda Baik to Genting Sempah was great fun! Much like The Gap where there is sparse traffic but the corners are a little faster here as it's much less tighter. Very much still Scooby and Evo habitats. ;P
I was not pushing as hard right after Frasiers Hill when the ER34 started giving out a continuous tick-tick sound when the steering is turned. Everything else seems fine except for the worrisome ticking sound. I really hope nothing major is wrong with the ER34.
Many folks have been messaging me for pictures, so I'll keep my writting short and here's the pictures PLUS a video. :)
Man, I need to get the ER34 for a check-up soon.
