Once grip starts to come up you can add layshaft screws to stiffen the car, otherwise it will want to turn up it's own backside

Ran a mixture tonight at Newbury, and center post only, was good early on, but in later rounds became inconsistent. Also noticed that with just the centre post the car would have better steering up to a point, then it was like the rear would suddenly lose some of the grip mid corner and try to kick out.

His was the final with just the centre post post, no layshaft screws (1st off, blue with yellow and orange);
+ YouTube Video

It doesn't look too bad, but with the knowledge I have now I would have had the layshaft screws in instead.
