BJ, are you giving it a ride height and corner balance?? Ive been playing around with these things (amongst others) with car set up and learnt a few things along the way that may be of help?

Matto,
Won't have time for any technical stuff before the Nats but would like to talk about anything that would contribute to making this thing enjoyable and competitive in the future.
Knowledge is power!
Look forward to catching up in a couple of weeks.

Cheers

Looking good BJ.

Just for my own purposes, are you at correct ride height, and what's your minimum ground clearance to the pipes?

Cheers!
Glen

Hi Glen
Will keep the height as is and how much it settles, running at 80mm clearance
under the mufflers at the moment.

Cheers
