What sort of changes would you be thinking? I found the Rides (36's) pretty good at Illawarra, but the 28's didn't work as well on a cool Tuesday evening as some gently warmed MM32's.

Haven't had enough racing lately to test anything However, hoping I might be able to get to the track on the weekend...

PS: Would be happy to help out with any track maintenance/work if I can

The tyres are bigger. If you leave your ride height the same then your CG is higher and the car rolls more. If you reduce your ride height your droop increases and the roll centre is raised because the links are on a greater angle. The tyres also have different front and side bite so I normally adjust camber and toe.

Great turnout for the working bee today.
The amount of dirt/slime that came up off the track was incredible. All the pipes were lifted and cleaned under, drains were dug, track was fully vacuumed etc. I for one cannot wait to have a run, it has to be faster, no question about it.
Even ex pro racer Nathan Reese came down after all the work was done
