I only took this pic, and unfortunately forgot to charge the contour up so no video either.

Well, i did managed a spirited drive in any case. Thing about the car... You just want to keep attacking those corners.

I'll try to hook up with Jason for a look at my options.

Defo running a once over with the fan controls.

Did your coolant temp behave when idling in the heat?

And why is temp lower without AC ( soz nub question)

Yeah, no problem but I wasn't stationary for very long.

The AC is an extra load on the engine. I'm pretty sure the compressor cuts out at WOT, but on a twisty run it must be cutting in and out. You'll also use more fuel obviously.

I saw a dyno graph once for a prelude, there was about 15kw difference with AC on/off.

I still leave my climate control on at all times apart from spirited drives. :D

Thanks Ripper for organising the cruise, it was a great turn out and I enjoyed it very much, it reminded me the car I'm driving isn't an A-B fridge.

Here are some photos I took yesterday.

When photos are blurry and shit, turn them into B&W!

Imagine the cars in this photos are all old schoolies eg. Rx2, 3 etc

Now colour, just to show that I'm not colour blinded ;)

Hello speed bump ;)

That's all… I didn't take photo of every car, I didn't even take any photos of my own car!

Please let me know if any of you want your number plate or your face censored ;)

Cheers,

Ket
