    Thanks Bruce, the only other one I've seen from the weekend was looking from above, mainly at the roof! Car went much better with the standard brake booster reinstalled, with a better competitive result than previously, should be able to build some confidence now. Handling was great with very controllable lift off oversteer coming into corners but this photo shows a bit of understeer, luckily still on the firm line though. Jenveys sound great but lacking a bit of torque out of the many hairpins in this event, your idea of the 5.1 diff would have paid dividends in this event Peter.

    What a pity you didn't get my 5.2:1 Bacci Romano set up. Too short for circuit track work but would have been ideal for your application. Now gone to Ireland.

    Would be pretty bad for driving on the road though. Next event at Burra in SA will be faster and should let the car be in its power band more often.

    Yes a lot of fun, but plenty of work and expense too, replacing the clutch this week.
