Eesh! That reducing radius sweeper looks like a site of much carnage. That should be interesting.

I think track will be clean by using a high pressure cleaner before this Friday practice. I can wait for it only 5 more sleeps

The trip is just as important as the race itself.

I'm sure we will have a great time whom ever wins! I was scared to death when the mains started. So the jitters don't really go away until it's all done.

Hmmmmmmm, It'll be a gittery week then!! Ahhh, I'm soo pumped for it. Gonna be a great meet, just can't wait to get to the track and see what the layout looks like physically, and see what the grip levels are like. Back at our club in Victoria, we race on asphalt so it is pretty good as long as you stay off the paint (great fun in the wet and it looks amazing!!).

My only proper worry I think is the height of the drivers stand. At our club its quite high which is good, you can see right over all the walls, etc, its good. But last year at the TCS, the stand was only like 3-4 steps high which was very poor because you'd approach a corner and you'd lose sight of your car briefly. Unfortunately, from the pictures I've seen of Castle Hill, it'll be fairly similiar but I won't know until I'm there!!!

CAN'T WAIT!!!!

Default Wheelbase width adjustments??

Just wanting to get more info on what the Pro and Cons of running a wider wheelbase (pillowballs 5mm+) Would I get better steering if I run the rear wheels wider than the front? Any help please.

You will get stripped light weight diff halves from the universals. However, if you feel you must go wider, the wider track width will allow the car to roll more, shorter widths will have less roll.

You will feel like the car has more steering too.
