    Cheers appreciate the nice words👍🏼 The rear anti roll bar really helps with understeer, the car rotates nicely when you need it to as well. When i was really pushing them i find around 6-7 laps of Snetterton then you can feel them stary to over heat. I tend to about 5 at a time, seems to be the sweet spot.

    I’m not quite sure why they are off a tad, we tried to adjust it some more but thats as close as we could get it🤷🏼‍♂️

    It’s not the mount that does that, it’s the Gopro. If you have a Hero 5 or above it has that built in. I’ll leave a picture below of the Geometry, it could be more aggresive for track but this is what i find works well for road use as well👍🏼

    So I had the geometry setup again and the car was feeling amazing so it meant for only one thing. Book a trackday at Snetterton for the Thursday (Valentines) 😂 The weather was absolutely perfect, and 12 degrees with the sun out and a perfectly dry track. The car felt absolutely incredible, keeping up with a lot of cars you wouldn't expect it to. The new bushes has definitely improved steering feel and initial turn in. The car was faultless, not a single issue all day, i was one of the last going round towards the end of the day despite doing over 50 laps already! I'll leave some pictures and videos below if anyone is interested. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MStdnlR2uvk&t=2s https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gJ7fm5eXDAw

    I drove around 50 miles last night, geometry isn’t too far and I didn’t have a hint of rattle? Completely silent.

    Cheers, i’m pleased with how it turned out. To be honest, I drive the car just as hard everytime it gets driven, apart from the handbrakes. I just thought why not for a video. Yeah he really is a good driver, after about 10 minutes it seemed like he knew the car very well. I was in the car all of the time, it was very strange i must say!

    Well today has been a fantastic day, I’m sure most of you know or have heard of Sideways Sid. I took the car to him today for him to make a video on and to get someone else’s opinion on the car! It seems like he absolutely loved the car and he was really surprised by it. He is a super nice guy, we wasted a good 2 hours just talking car stuff lol. Not too sure when the video will be out but i’ll be sure to post it in here when it goes live!
