How much faster were you with your JP8 when you first switched from the M410? Did you have to make any chassis adjustments after making the change?

Thanks in advance
I'm running 17.5 blinky on a technical asphalt track (med - high grip). Similar to you, I used the m410 before and switched to the JP8 (LW) and the results were really good since the JP8 has more rotation which meant that i was able to drive more easily into the corners and use less of my breaks. The rear is stable as advertised and with that, i gained more consistency which led to getting faster laptimes and more laps in. I was able to bring down my fastest laptime by .4 secs and gain 2 more laps with the JP8, compared to the M410. The real deal for me is to be consistent on hitting those targets and laptimes again and again.

I mounted the JP8 8mm forward and use the thicker high rear wings (optional part). For my setting, switching to JP8 is definitely a plus. Waiting actually for the JP8HR to arrive in our shores to test it for the 2019 season.

Hope this helps.
