* Heavy battery made the car feel more planted and easier to keep on the line. Lap times same as light batteries.

* Tire combo the biggest gain. I started with a set that ran 23 seconds and found a set in the 20+ seconds.

Time to play with the diff, shock angle, width, camber etc.

I like your scientific methods. Keep us posted..
