    A lot of the wrecks were due to insufficient suspension travel!

    Even the French are disparaging: "...une 205 gti, des autocollants et hop des pilotes, du dimanche..."

    Looks to me like the suspension has travelled about 6 feet, starting from just above the tarmac!

    Nearly rolled mine first lap out of the pits at Mallala. Just installed a new rear ARB and had it set too stiff, cue spin at 130kph and some brown trousers...

    Low competition numbers mean they are trying, high numbers mean they are very trying.

    The moral of the story is don't let your 205 lift a wheel on cornering because the moment you do it says.

    You want wheels in the air? I'll give you wheels in the air..
