Thanks for info DJ - as always grip and tire wear are related. Sounds like the tire truing station is going to be busy. LOL

Did you get a chance to weigh the car with small tires? Will we need to add weight to the kit car?

I did not weight it with small tires, however I did weight it will large tires just to see and it was just on the market 2530 grams. For sure with small tires you will need to add, as it will fall under the 2525 legal limit. This was with 5 cell regular battery and carbon wheels/Contacts.

75/68.5 tires where used.

I tested the blitz R11 and the protoform with the dome. I was able to get a similar best lap, but the protoform was more consistent for me. The R11 did give it more steering and it felt pretty good. Going to try both again on a shorter track this weekend. We will see.

Got my kit today, the electronic instruction in the thumb drive is a pain, Quality is fabulous, fitting are good. The brake pads i do not understand do i have to glue them to the metal piece or just slot it in.

The rear suspension at default is a mystery cant make it out is it right at the bottom or 2nd last??

Successful debut in Australia too. Peter Jovanovic TQed and won the Serpent Australia Tour, with a car that was not even a week old.

Kindest regards,
