Damp and very slippy Whilst it was damp, I was using my only set of rubber tyres and they were simply too hard and once it was dry, I was running the new serpent rims on a 40 shore - but this was also too hard.
I brought a bad choice of tyres with me to the AMCC track, which I put down to a lack of experience at tracks outside Germany. I was expecting similar levels of grip as at my circuit, but the difference was huge
I ran about 1 liter of fuel on the 40 shores and they hardly wore.

On a plus point, it made the driving very demanding and exciting - so, all-in-all I really enjoyed it

Julius answered this on mytsn some time back...

The response of the car is more direct with the shorter arm. The stability will be reduced under braking. It's a way to get more steering in fast corners.

To another question of mine, this is what Rene answered;

RENE CORNELLA (AT) 06−01−04 at 08:50
I see it otherwise around. On slow tracks I donít need a good brake, but a little lose rear end to go fast around the corners. So on small technical tracks I use the shorter version. On faster corners I donít feel any difference. But braking from high speed is better with the longer version.

***************************

Also, the change in camber is more with shorter arms. So if your track requires more camber change in the middle of the corner, then go with shorter rear arms.

If he had taken his glasses off before driving up to the track, I would certainly have mistaken him for Michael Salven.

My trickery went beyond making the track slippery ... it went to the point of getting rain to pour a special grease on that only affected HIS car!

This is true. I normally use 37 shores for the heats and then 40s for the main but that day not even the 35 rears did any good. I still don't have wets or intermediate latex but I need to get some if I really intend to enter the nationals next year.
