Can't remember the words "Darkside" "Vision" and "Clouded" spring to mind!

I've got a load of Ti screws on order aswell as some springs and some stuff for my Surikarn.

Sweet... I cant afford to get Ti screws now so I will have to wait a little... I want to get the car first. I am worried I will order all the little thing, but then when I place the order for the car, I can afford it and will have to wait another month.

On the day of this test the front/rear wear was pretty even. I started with a 0.5 split (fronts smaller) and ended up with equal tire sizes.

With same size tires on the 710 you have a little overdrive. If you use more overdrive the turn in (using a one way) is better as the fronts try to slow the car when you get off throttle. Out of corners you will most likely get a little more stability/push than with a 1:1 ratio. Because of the tendency to get oversteer into corners a large front overdrive does not work on slippery tracks. Than you will be better of using a front diff for stability.

In very tight twisty tracks an overdrive might be helpfull. We'll see if a 21 pulley is a worthwile option.
There are no plans yet so no need to ask for release dates

Dont forget to have someone take a picture of you on the podium when you finish the race. Nice track BTW

Bad idea, BaxterC, bad idea Ask Lord D and myself - never, ever get Girlfriends involved - never even let them know you've got a car! And if they do find out, make sure they only see one of your cars at the same time! You can get into big trouble!!
The great thing is - all cars look alike to girlfriends, so if you're clever, you can have quite a collection and they'd never know

Ask D, he'll give you some good hints at "car-hiding"

Other than that, you'll get to know some guys at the track and they'll be able to help out on race days - on practice days you won't need much help in re-fuelling
