This helps with setting clutch gap.

Serpent USA included a hard clutch spring with a sheet recommending various setting depending on the engine being used in the box of my 720. The sheet shows an END PLAY setting of between 0.4mm and 0.6mm, depending on the engine. This seems to me to be excessive as most other documentation recommends a setting where there is barely any movement. Wondering if these numbers are correct or are they maybe off by a decimal point.

loose belts are faster but have a larger risk of slipping, slipping will lead to failure. so often you run a loose belt for quals and tighten them a notch for mains.

Why would a floating rear body mount only for lola"s?
it could have the same positive effect on a touring shell i think.

Think i'm going to try it see if it makes any difference.
Or is it not allowed in the touring class??.

Carbon support looks pretty cool.
