    Looks great and sounds great!!

    Great video tho. When I imagine a Stratos bombing along that's what it looks like.

    Great to see the car in action Col. Looks to handle so well and you must be very pleased with how your hard work is translating into the track/road?
    Thanks for sharing.
    Cheers!

    Looks great Colin, nice to see a Stradale-bodied car in action for a change

    I know you've got some decent dampers on there, but what spring rates did you go for on front and rear, car looks well balanced?

    Thanks guys
    Yea the car handles very well straight out of the box, running
    325lbs front
    250lbs rear
    I was aiming for a ride frequency of around 2, but I think the car may be a little lighter than I’d estimated, unfortunately due to a comedy of errors I still haven’t had a change to get it onto some corner weights.
    As you can see from the vidoes, the car has epic turn in, which is great, but a little hard to read, I’d like to try dropping the front roll centre a little, from my calcs I think I can drop it down by 60mm without going below the ground, I think this would slow the front down a little and give better feedback
    Conversely, I’d like to try and raise the rear roll center to limit its ability to drop below the ground level, It’s very tricky to control the roll centre migration on a McPherson strut, but raising the roll center may make the rear harder to read, just something to try
    The Balance is good at the moment, so I think my ARB calcs we’re pretty close, if/when I make changes to the roll centres I’ll have to compensate with new ARB’s, that is if we ever get to do another tarmac rally in Australia……..

    Do hope so.
    Unfortunate outcome on Targa shouldn't prevent future events, perhaps just with more controls to limit speed, increase safety, somehow.

    Did the chin spoiler survive the event?
    What tyres did you use?
