Cool. Traction control off?
Of course. Car wouldn't have moved otherwise haha.Cool. Traction control off?
I hope not! I'm only 18!Looks like fun !! I hope you let your son take the wheel. Great training for skid control on highways.........
For sure some good snow tires would've made a huge differenceLove it! Although the ML as a vehicle has limitation its limitations for an event like this, do you think that different tires would have made a difference?
Thanks Matt! Was great fun apart from all the understeer!That looked like great fun mars, looks very slippery out there though. Great to see the ML put through its paces. Well done.
Very true.need a locking diff for that sort of thing - makes me miss my Jeep.
Wow! I am entering ice racing as well this season, and I bought a 1999 Subaru Impreza Wagon that I'm building up for the ice racing season. I intended to use that subaru for these RallyX events to shake it down, but as soon as I drove it home I spun a bearing on the engine. In the process of rebuilding it now, but at 750 dollars for the car I can't really complain!We wait for the lakes to freeze and set up good tracks. My weapon of choice is a 13:1 compression 16v GTi Mk II with a Quaife diff for the 020 5 speed VW trans.
Tires are made using 170 studs per 15" tire. (event rules).
The HP to weight ratio with that car and the tires the grip is amazing. They make me run in the U2 class due to the engine and suspension mods. I missed most events last year, but I plan to do at least 3-4 this year.
Nope. The only casualty eventually may have been my shock absorbers, which were replaced.Did you break anything?
