very true walter , my car is set up for what are pretty rough [for tarmac] and tight hill climbs sprints. no good having very stiff suspension as the bumps and camber changes mean you need quite a lot of suspension travel.
spend most of the time in 2nd or 3rd on the hills only a few tracks that i use 4th. just about ever track has a 1st gear hairpin so good mechnical grip is needed hence the softish suspension.
hopefully the lsd i have now fitted will improve it even more out of the slow corners but i can see some changes being needed to set up and driving style now its fitted.

The lesser of the two. They didn't advise too much lock up on the street.

That would be the hardest part for me to decide upon tbh as I do some track time as well plus I absolutely hate the one-wheel burn-outs at drag events (which are dangerous too).

They would do 60% but said it would be too unpredictable on wet ground. And it would wear tires fast. They HIGHLY discuraged 60% for the street. If I can ever get my project going again I could tell you how fun the GT diff is.

I hope that was a cheap tyre Wally


Back to your circuit handling.... Have you tried measuring your tyre temps after some hot laps? Infrared temp guns are really cheap now and by checking the temps at the inside, outside & middle of the tread you can figure out how the tyre is hitting the road in the bends. If you can find a handling pad to run constant circles until the front tyres start to go off (overheat) you could learn a lot.
