274kmph (171mph) Monaro Autobahn Run
OK - so after the 144mph run last week that saw the car only get up into
5th gear and no more I took the car out for another run when the roads were
a little quieter...
First Autobahn section - i.e. catching up to Silver AMG merc which flew
past at beginning of clip - 225kmph (141mph) done in 4th gear with plenty
left to go.
Onto next Autobahn - first stint up until blue mondeo - 147mph (235mph) in
start of 5th before lifting off to slow down.
Then once he's moved over it's near redline in 4th and then up into 5th
again - 3min41sec marker - Redline approaching in 5th doing 274kmph
(171mph), change up to 6th and shortly after let off the power again due to
cars in distance that I know I'll be catching up with in no time.
The annoying rattle - I thought it was down to the mount being on the
passenger seat previously which had no weight on it, so I moved it this
time, yet it's still there. The strange thing is that I don't hear the
rattling noise when driving so the mic on the camera must be fairly
sensitive - I would throw music over the top but there would be no fun in
that, as half the enjoyment of driving a big V8 is listening to the sound
coming from the engine itself!
Hopefully this will show a little better to those who aren't too familiar
with the Monaro just what it's capable of doing... ;)
