We ran a layout that was pretty unforgiving so some corners were taken with care. My fastest lap of the evening was 0.47s behind the 5 times UK Mod champion, Chris Grainger.

When I first put the car down it felt superb, very consistent and easy to drive.
It seems to have more steering than the '12 and the steering is very smooth, but the extra steering is going to take some time to get used to to be able to drive it as fast as I want.
I ran the Mazda Speed 6 in quali, this has been my standard carpet body for a while as it felt consistent, the LTC-R was a handful.
I tried the LTC-R in the final with the T4 and managed to go 0.2s quicker than in quali.
Couple of the others actually added more rear toe and thicker front oil to make it just that little bit easier. I might try the rear toe next week.

It was kit carpet setup except for 2deg rear camber and 1000cSt in the rear diff.
The back didn't step out all evening despite the extra steering!

The finals are video'd on a webcam, I'll post a link when the final gets posted so you can see.

Do I like it? yes
Absolute setup will require some slight tinkering, but I know it can be competitive with little effort.

As promised
Car #1 is Chris Grainger with an Mi4 CXL?
Car's 2, 3 and 5 are T4's
Not sure on the others.
Mine's the blue with a yellow and orange stripe (the one that never wins )

I've found that if I build for around 40-50% rebound, after a few hours they settle at around 10%

I believe the biggest pinion you can fit with a 84t spur is 30t
