The highest rear tracktion was achieved by the following combination (sorry, I do not remember those UBO, LT thing) but here it is: lower arms on highest slots, upper arms on 9 o'clock (you would need to cut/shorten upper arms by 2mm to use 4deg camber). When you raised the whole rear arms assy UP, the rear weight is now more on tires rather than center of the car (since the lower arms is now much higher than the chassis). How does it perform? car will be very very nervous on sweeper as the front does not have enough traction to make the rear to follow (xtra stick to the ground) BUT I think the new servo saver will favor..

BTW, those r just my imagination explanation, I'm sure last time Lord D ask the same question to "official guys"
Ok

So by nervous do you mean the back will push the front (Understeer)more, not that the rear end will be nervous, loosing traction

Yes, exactly (on throttle). It may not be noticable on small track, but definetely able to see the front part of the car trying to pulled in when turning but refused by the back side

Default Front alu pulley

Just checked mine and the belt definately no longer rubs on the chassis with a new belt and the standard tightness setting.

Cheers, Mark.

You need to get your video camera on this one, Sow - disguise yourself as a tree and plant yourself at the mid point of the chicane (on the grass of course) then you'll be able to watch/video how the big boys do it without anyone knowing
No questions about my shaky hands and knees!

As for the "secret cam", I've done it ... like the video I did of your car going thru' the chicane ... doesn't help ... I need practise!

Yeah I know, what a useless glass car! I thought if I hit the rear of your car strategically, you'd be limping back into the pits with a broken shock tower, broken shocks, bent chassis, broken DRS, broken rear arms and broken rear block but hell, nothing happened?

No worries, they (Association of Seniors' World Traveller) gave me some special knee high socks to wear on an airplane.

I thought they'd give me a voucher for a first class round the world ticket but no chance ...

Yes you do! I know what you mean, though. When I got the chicane right, it was when I wasn't really paying attention too much to getting in at the right angle - it was just natural to go on that line. When I thought about it, I would end up crashing through the chicane - only practice will help.

And it was quite kind of you to hit me more than one, in an attempt to break my rear tower - unfortunately it didn't work

As long as you remember not to wrap the socks around your head - that could land you in big trouble
