I was expecting the car to be a little slower in the hairpins, but because the amount of speed you could carry into the corner was greater it just seemed to improve the car all round.

Because of the increased rear grip I was then able to stiffen the rear spring for some scary turn in without spinning on our bumpy track

Sounds like you just hit too damn hard There is only so much you can expect out of plastic and fine thread screws, coarse threads would help, but I don't know any that fit a 3mm screw hole for the shims).

What geubes said, a bit more stable but it also rotates a little better in slow corners

I have an '11 to sell but it's in Australia
It does come with the elusive flying fox spool outdrives though

I was at Paul's just before the SA titles and he had a bag of about 100 of them. He said his missus will be taking over the service side of the business so they should be available again soon

how did I go on carpet? should I keep it on for Carpet this weekend?

I usually run on a decent/high grip but bumpy asphalt.
