Just got back from the new Palmy track. Very tight and techincal, but a good flow. 2nd gear was set up to come in alot earlier and got some good pace, beating guys in the qualifiers who were out of reach with the CD3 I recently sold. An engine failing to start ruined it for the final. Can't wait to get back there for their club race day. The 710 deserves a good clean tomorrow

I wondered if you ever got tired of it. You need to take up acting lessons Bro.

Thanks only for the word? You should thank Onkel Sow first then for the English lesson.

Yup. The on power oversteer flick is important especially if you're running solid front. Different way of driving. Where people would let off throttle and slow down to get steering on a corner or a chicane, you punch a little to twich the rear end to where you want the car to head.

I then looked at the clutch and gears and they were moving but the wheels would not ingage, after a few second I heard a loud click and the car started moving, 2 minutes later it did it again for a few seconds, then it started moving again, then I noticed loud clicks when shifting that I never heard before, I then took the two speed out to check the oneway and I could not turn it with my hand, so it appears to be working, could it be for some reason it sticking in second, but if it was shouldnt the car move slow? does anyone have any ideas I would appreciate it
Did you read Glenn Cauley's clutch article on mytsn? I assume it's the clutch problem.

I noticed this even with the diff - it was easier to hit the throttle than to let the car roll through the corner. But even with the one-way which I've been using for the last couple of days it was nice to have the flick.
