All the best Fee, fingers crossed and I'm sure you'll make the final this time. look at it this way, if you set it as a goal to get in the final while running down on the cars potential, it's going to be all good from then on in when the power goes up.

Good luck, keep us updated as much as possible

Ross

She came into the pits at the end of the qualifying.... running on fumes and with tyres smoking Laughing She said it was not handling at all well at the end... checked the tyre pressures, 38psi roasting hot.... doh.... We need a pit board system or something to get her in to check these things

Watching the vids back she can see a few places where she was coasting, early braking and perhaps on the gas late. Still more to come, and we are both still under estimating the car I think.

I took it out on worn 888's on Friday and just man handled it round.... sideways into corners, mid corner etc, but it just pulled its self out flat out in 3rd.... Nearly had an off around 90mph though with cold brakes... :O

brake.... ooohhhhh... .brake turn... brake brake brake... two wheels on the grass Laughing

Had a chat about the car lastnight... I think we're going to order the ECU just now, but wait till after the final round to fit it... just to get a better indication of the difference/compare with this years times Smile

GRP doors and lexan windows are wanted though Smile

Yep....in hindsight I should have come in.....but I just didn't want to!

It's always easy to look back on the videos and think where I could have done better....I'm definitely going to watch them in between sessions at the next round (like I said I was going to this time!)

I think we'll do a lot of work on the car over the winter (when we actually have the money to for a change!) and then we'll have a full set of times from this year to compare

Well done fee !
What PSI was in the tyres when you first went out ?

And whose is this?


I see this a good bit in the Falkirk Area. Same one, do you know ?

yup... we had them at 30-31 cold for the wet, then took them down to 28 for the dry....

The car was understeerign a fair bit going by your vids.... Couple of options.... come in to adjust pressures OR dial MORE torque to the rear and make it oversteery
