How much front castor do you run?

I know you altered your front roll centre but did you manage to get much out the rear too?

Front castor is a couple of degrees more than standard. Front roll centre is corrected as is bump steer, all done through the tubular subframe.

Rear is standard geometry which hasn't given any issues with the front geometry change.

Car looks awesome Donald, sounds like a shotgun going off every gear change, no wonder it did some damage!

Awesome stuff as usual what a car you've been developing over these years... great to see someone who does most things themselves... seriously cool

Update,

After Doune I noticed some white smoke from the exhaust, not all the time but only when I started it from hot. Investigation found a hairline crack in the head casting in an exhaust port allowing coolant into the turbo so I took the head off and have now scrapped it. It's been repaired 3 times now. The plan is to get a new head casting and get the car onto Ricky's new dyno in November to spend some time refining the setup.

I haven't had much time this year to take the car out due to other commitments but I hope next year i'll be able to commit to the Scottish Championship and get a few trips down south to Loton park, Prescott, Shelsley Walsh and Harewood hills as well

The car is more or less where I wanted it to be when I started the Twincharger project. I just need to get out there and learn/use it! It's like an on/off switch on wheels

In hindsight, the Extremes I used this year. although very good tyres, aren't able to put the power down. I'm hoping there will be more choice that just the Avons for next spring
