I was sitting here in Aus, Saturday 3am and I see your name appear on the results page and woudln't ya know it... the live system locks up on your race..

Just looked at the results.. not a great time on track I assume.. Thank heavens for round 4, the other rounds seemed like you had problems and that DJ driver is over 1 second faster compared the majority of the field.

Finals... a few long laps, is that due to the race timing system or something, blanks mean being lapped ? Or did you have problems? Flame out at the start too??

Couldnt see much of the track, what was the surface grip like, that sweep looked mighty fast... Springs? Tyre Combo?

Regardless, close racing in the B main well done..

Hi Grouchy i did see a read adjustable swaybar in the prototype photos

the stock bar is fine, yes it slightly rubs when its new but then frees up. if you are concerned you can get some fine sandpaper to clean around the bulkhead but its not needed.

+1 Pete Bobby looked way better with his G4 but who knows if he had more time with the borrowed car

John, try something for me one day at Moorebank. Slam on the stiffest springs, lower height and reduce droop, 42-45 sh / 59-61mm and give me some feedback of what you think. The RS09 with it's wide arms and FLEX chassis should in theory be a much stiffer suspension setup, specially at Moorebank. (For Int'l racers - Moorebank has the silkiest smooth surface and curbs that are deliciously tempting!)

Ari should host a TM event there.. count me in if he does.... "The Mafia" Challenge!!!

Hey Harry.. with 42 45 it would like driving on an ice rink
we dont have the numbers on club day for that sort of grip

ive been running 37s all round with a 42 rear in the final. i have a list of things to try so i might try and do a test and tune day one day next week.

Sorry I mean 42's or 45's... I was surprised how much grip we had even at the NSW when track was green. Aero really works well at Moorebank. Anyways.. just throwing ideas into the TM think tank.
