Just found the set up problem that was holding me back
It was the clutch spring !!
I found it too late and snatchy for my liking and I had released it so much it fell off the end of the thread
I had a spare spring for the FW05 3D clutch, this felt as stiff as the RRR 4D spring but it is about 1.5mm shorter.
I now have the clutch biting that little earlier which allows me more control of the power uptake around those sweepers.
Since this change I have had to go back to the 16T gear, and also tighten up the 2nd gear clutch, and the best bit is that the motor which I thought was running lean was actually running rich by half a turn.
Now to start a race set up all over again, and to re-time the tank run again.
