Woow ! That would mean having to make 4 or 5 bodyshells to test !

Yeah, I know I'm pretty lazy when it comes to making and spraying shells. That's why we have people like crashed_1 who can do bodyshells for 1 pair of foam tires.

Thanks for the reply Julius. Is that 5 mm forwards or backwards?

Normally the first time I cut a new type shell I'll align the front wheelarches to sit in the middle of the wheels when using 2-3mm caster.

Then I'll decide if the next one needs adusting depending on experience.
Ah, you're right ... I meant wheelarches guides.

So do you play around with the wing positions too? I normally don't because it seems that some of the rules don't allow for overhang.

Oh, forgot that we have the good Captain lurking in here these days. On the other hand, I think he's too busy fixing that trans-beamer of his.

Did you buy BBC website just to put good info on it? (j/k)

Anyway, hope the weather forecast stays true.

Oh, and all this while I thought you were like Mark Green.

He used a touring shell in the lola/outlaw series for the last national race because he already wrapped up the British National championship for Serpent and the 710.

Yeah, I paid them (learned that trick from Mark who paid the marshalls in the AMCC trip). Couldn't pay Yahoo though so they're forecasting rain.
