    it's had the whole rear end replaced since then , also the front has been dropped as far as i can go ....

    the rear tyres have been a constant headache their 32/14.50 /15 hoosiers
    a guy at the track said run them at 8psi , then someelse said 5psi and so on and so on

    it've got a chute , but i've not fitted it yet , a 12' simpson


    theres your problem your running too little tyre pressure for a vehicle of that weight

    ah right , i'm just going on what some of the other racers at the pod recomended , one had a fueler and a the other guy was in a doorslammer from memory .. so it certainly was them trying to knobble us

    is there a weight vs psi calculator to give a close idea or is it really track time that'll tell ....

    it weigh's in at about 1400 kg at the moment
