I just would like to try back to back with my 03 and 05 to actually see on the clock which one is faster.
I suspect my 05, but given that it still likes to tip when really pushed perhaps my 03 is the safer bet, but at least if I know the lap times for each then the descision is an informed one !

thanks

M03
blue rear springs with 400 oil in the shocks and 5mm spacer under the piston
red front springs with 400 oil in the shocks and 5mm spacer under the piston
about 1.5 degrees front toe out
M grip tyres all round and superglue on the side of the tyres
ball diff fitted

M05
blue rear springs with 500 oil in the shocks and 6mm spacer under the piston
red front springs with 600 oil in the shocks and 6mm spacer under the piston
5mm wheel hubs and 1mm spacer on them on the rear
about 1 degree toe out front
kit D tyres with superglue on the sides and on the first piece of outer tread on the front tyres ,

the car WONT grip roll now and i am only 0.05 seconds slower with my M05 than i was with my M03

use the gear diff in the M05 , the ball diff causes it to veer to the left on power and pull sraight when cruzing ,
Good luck with it and let me know how you get on
