The rounds go fast due to most cars run 66 seconds and quicker and the pro cars only running 3 laps then coming in.The morning goes fast just an heads up.

You would do well running in the clubsprint class but it would require running on 130 and higher tyre.

damn you've been busy. Gearbox swap, control arms, uprights, brakes and new rims and tires in a couple weeks.

How's the welded diff? We now have 4 cars that are a pita to push around :lol:

I've been running a welded diff since just after jambo :-s surprised you didn't notice!

My entry for Japnats has been in since they started accepting them lol

Thanks for the comments guys. I wasn't entirely sure about the wheels initially...but they have started growing on me already.

Still a little time can be made up in 4,5 and 6 should have a 56.5 in it would be my guess going off vid

Does the software do predicted best lap.

The rear needs the sway bar back on or stiffer Springs. Every left turn is easy to lift the front left wheel off the ground :shock:

It does do predicted best but only based on the current session as far as I can tell

Only does predicted based on current session and the track is only broken into 2 sectors as default setting.

Had a mixed bag at the Sprints on Saturday. Turned in a few quick laps even running back in the 56 second zone (56.8 best)

But during the 4th session I sheered off all 4 wheel studs on the front left corner - I usually check the nuts after each session but managed to over look them that day. Mix that with slip on wheel spacers and well. .... You get the idea!
