You know, it might work well on a pure oval with no (or shorter) straights.I enjoyed this fun run, especially when close to other cars. I reduced the power diff lock, reduced the rear ARB, and then I found I was able to steer it quite well through the corners with the throttle. It's just a pity the car is so unstable in a straight line.Ok , thanks Wally, I will put a season together of say 6 races

My lower back is stuffed at the moment, and this race made it too painful to see out. I must have been leaning a little bit sideways the whole circuit
I haven't tried it, but it should be his usual top quality.

Ha ha. I just couldn't remember on the grid.Re the PSI, when it's colder, you typically need to lower the PSI, probably just by 1 PSI all round.
Have you got my tyre pressure app, which has a thread here in the forums?

All good. I was hoping to maybe set up a possible criss cross, especially if you got unsettled by the bumps....then had to chase Seanus for a long time until he made a mistake and I could pass (sorry about the tangle at Tower Bend. I was trying to stay wide to give you room, but somehow we ended up rubbing door handles. I haven't watched the replay, so I don't know what happened)...

Mar 27: Mills Metropark (2 x 20 laps) + [ SEANUS PIT MOD ]
Weather will be warm to hot, 25 degrees and 30 degrees and clear.
Instead of penalty ballast, I'll give Jeremy and Russ 30% restrictor for the round (because of the BoP ballast in race 2). Should amount to less than a 10 second penalty over the whole race.

I did feel a little bad about spoiling Russ's party... but then everyone will be glad to hear that rules are rules, and no favours given just because someone wonWith the Russ/Grat contact, the two were side-by-side through turns 1 and 2, but then Russ moved over to Grat’s side of the track, unable to take the turn tightly enough, and squeezed Grat off the track, costing him positions. I judge that Russ had enough time to know that Grat was alongside him, and shouldn’t have squeezed him off the track, so Russ gets penalty ballast for the next round.come on, poor Russ. He had the best races ever tonight and it was just a tough move... yes, he squeezes me, but just a bit... can you at least give him a minimum penalty? like the smallest amount of ballast you usually give?
And not intending to take anything away from Russ's performance, how do you know he didn't win because of that squeeze, when without it you might have taken the lead and left him unable to pass?

Race 1 was intense. I got past Joe after an early mistake, then had to chase Seanus for a long time until he made a mistake and I could pass (sorry about the tangle at Tower Bend. I was trying to stay wide to give you room, but somehow we ended up rubbing door handles. I haven't watched the replay, so I don't know what happened). After that, I was tightly sandwiched between Killagorilla and Jeremy to the end, with less than a second gap front and back. It was great racing - my heart was pounding looking for a pass on Killa while keeping an eye on Jeremy behind. It's no wonder I was "Busiest" for race 1.
In race 2, I unfortunately got caught up in Phil.8's spin after contact. He was rolling backwards off the track, and ended up shepherding me towards the barrier where I had to reverse back to get around him, ending up last but for the wounded Phil. From there I had to work hard to pass Dave O, then Rob who was too gentlemanly as always and JamieP. I caught Jeremy and Freezer only they both had some kind of incidents up ahead, probably involving tyre bundles. I managed to finish 7th which was a good result after a poor start.
As to the car, personally I like it. It's fast and predictable although it moves around a little (you can't just mash the throttle, but can still steer it with the gas), and I have dialled out the understeer either with setup or driving changes. It's given me lots of good racing so far this season.
