I have updated the spreadsheet, points as below:

I think all are to be congratulated on a good performance, Trevor takes the 25 points, Craig shows a lot of promise for next season with 24.58

I will update some photo's later

Trevors lines were perfect 8)

Not sure mine was understeering, just wider line in for a later apex (thats my theory anyway)

Yes BBP goes for a later apex to straighten the exit meaning the cars straight when getting on the gas, that seems pretty important in this car as it has plenty of grunt to light the tyres up.

The body roll certainly looks less than Curborough (dont think it coukd have been more!) And closer to the roll angles of Red Rocket and John Ls cars, so thats another step in the right direction :-)

A 24.58 is pretty good going given the bhp "handicap" of yours, Craig - those suspension tweaks really paying off! Or is Shelsley one of those hills where grunt pays off?

What happened to the "just to have some fun" - or is this secret suspension testing for Dark Knight?...

I reckon I should score approx 23-23.5 against Trevor on average across the season, Shelsley suits grunt and theres not enough corners for his superior corner speed to really pay off. I was lucky the hill suited the car and it was dry.

Yeah the 'just for fun' has faded into 'I dont like being uncompetitive!' so yes the suspension tweaks are working and hopefully with Dannys help will improve further. The main issue is rubber on the road, I need more at the rear but dont want to cut the bodywork up and make the car unsaleable once ive finished with it and its replace ments built.
Im hoping I can gt 225s under the rear and that will help, if not I think itll be at least 2, maybe 3 prs of rear tyres in a season!

The new car will share no suspension items with this car, will have to start again on that one witj the development

Actually its not the main issue, its the issue I cant easily get over. Handlings main issue but thats progressing nicely :-)

It has been suggested I reduce the power, but that aint ever gonna happen in fact once its handling ok im looking to next step and over 400hp! 8)

Yup! I really rated them on my ss1 in its White Lightning days and I think they have been the fastest 1Bs on scimitars for a number of seasons, John L, Steve Cork and of course eleventy time Champ Trevor have been using them to great effect, so they are a known benefit.
Ive looked at going to 13" v70s as they do 215 fronts and 235 rears and are smaller rolling radius so should still fit, but id need smaller front brakes and think that might be a problem. Took some stopping after the finish line at Curbs and Shelsley, 95+ to walking pace in about 40 yds isnt funny...
