    Default Last track night of the year

    Made some adjustments to the suspension, corner weights, and alignment, and dropped about 4-5 seconds per lap.

    Looks like fun! How accurate is the speed shown in the vid? Surprised you didn't get that much over 100 mph.

    Mike - It is only a 1.4L Rover engine. Vmax looks about right.

    Ahh, that makes sense. I saw the color scheme and thot it was a R400. Power is similar to my X-flow, which topped out around 105 mph.

    The lower power makes knocking off 4-5" a lap that much more impressive.

    Andrew,

    I can get the planets to align, would you be interested in running together at Barber sometime in November?
