Ohh, lovely shifter.

GWD at a guess? Driven it yet? Any good?
Been eyeing them up for a while and am still quite tempted... Really looks the part BUT function is more important to me than looks.....

Cya,

Cool! Bit of rear end action there! Did he manage to stay ahead of the mini?

He was quicker than the mini, until the spin, lost him the place, was quicker than the V6 Euro car off the line too.

Would have done a lot better but only just scrapped 3 laps of practice as the throttle jammed open, so as this was it's first run it was straight into the race blind.

Used this round as more of a live test setion, next is to work on all the suspension angle's as it needs more camber. The engine ran strong with no issues.

Despite your mechanical difficulties, how well did you do compared to the other vehicles on track that session?

What additional modifications (Hey! What has been done to your car anyway?) have you thought of making that would improve your handling/performance?

Good job though. It's good to see another BALLJOINT car on track as opposed to those damned 1302's and 1303's

He had the edge over the Mini, there was only a small grid this time out but usually the grid is at least double what it was.
Comparisons are hard to make as the cars at the front of the grid were far more powerful and in different classes to Stu.
The next round will be better as there is a wider spread of cars and should be more in his class.

I cant comment on Stu's car but to give you some idea of how the Beetle Cup car's were set up we used to run mine like this. Stu's is similar but the angles and cambers etc need sorting badly.

Front end. Spax dampers, long travel ball joint's, bump steer kit, 2 sets of caster shims, different camber adjuster nuts, modified top arms, heavy duty roll bar.

Rear end. Spax dampers, 27mm torsion bars, urethane bushes, solid mounted gear box and we made the droop adjustable.

I also ran it on buffed tyres, Stu is currently using an intermediate race tyre in full soft compound.
