Lower RC for front and rear perhaps?

My memory modules have parity checks. So I should remember how you looked like regardless albeit with some less hair.

Well, parity checking does seem to work then ... even with exponential decline, I would have had more hair than I actually do now. Mark barely looses out in this locks department!

Mind you, its a lot less annoying driving with less hair too!

Well, that was one of things I didn't try because I really thought that the rain was going away.

What I did was increase toe-out at front, orange springs all round, lower but equal ride height all round, 4 holes both front and rear.

It was pretty good on wet tyres (Pit Shimizu threads) for the first heat but I got too confident and went off track a few times. I also made the mistake of sticking to the racing line.

It was VERY good with the 25 shores in the rear, 37 front but it soaked up too much water after 2 minutes in the 2nd heat.

In the final heat, used my mind trick to get another 710 driver to loan his precious, very precious, intermediate tyres (no longer sold or made and EVERYONE on latex wants them) and it was very good. Again got too confident ( I was leading so maybe was even cocky ) and went off the track twice, each time costing me a lot of time due to bad luck (marshal had to wait for passing cars before retrieving mine).

Anyway, need to look at the car's electronics. Don't want what happened back home to happen again (receiver was mouldy with green stuff ... corroding PCB!).

As you saw, the 2mm roll bars weren't doing anything anyway plus I was already on orange springs and wanted some balance between front and rears.

Wasn't bad at all as you saw from the lap times. Its just my useless driving that failed me.

Aha! No wonder the guy was soooooo slow. Of course, I didn't have to go off twice in his area. Now THAT would have been money wasted for a certain individual from Germany eh?

Maybe but not much point because he'll say I'm using a 5 port and he 3, never mind that his is a JP-FX and mine is just an NSR5.

Still, we need to master that chicane. He knows that part of the track much better than me and catches me up every time. I can't seem to get the right line that allows for smooth turns at the end and prep for the straight.

I need to take my own advise ... practise, practsie, practise.
