Seriously though. I just want to see what's going on at launch and through the twisty bits.

There are a few id like to volunteer for for that job!

Reason is to see whats happening during a run. You can often see if the cars underdamped and certainly see if its running on or close to the bumpstops (more common issue than most realise, ceratinly on lowered small scimitars)

Or, if using an under-vehicle note-taker, maybe a ride your pimp thing?

Nick,
Please don't disappoint me - i was trying very hard to beat 40 secs for the single and 70 for the double and after running 4 on the trot I finally managed to crack the single in 39.? and then after trying all day young master Rickard came racing from the timing booth and, after giving me a wind-up time, stated that i had finally cracked the 70secs - What was it (or was he fiddlin with my mind ???) ? :x :shock: :mrgreen: :evil: :twisted:
Regards,
Viv

Viv,

Excellent times for a pretty standard SS1 Turbo

It's the nut behind the wheel that makes the difference ;)
