How hard were you launching to have it squat down that much?!

Fairly hard, that was the second fastest first sector I did, you start with your front wheels level with the guy in orange so not sure if it squatted more than that initally. Stayed a little squatted all the way through first. Don't think I could've got it any quicker with those tyres/suspension. Fronts were spinning and the rears were having a hard time...

Your launches were good, but you also need to remember that you are on a hill which doesn't help the squatting issue. Suspension would be my first point of action, tyres I'd leave til later.

agreed with karl def need some better suspension first then tyres. my tyres + brakes were letting me down. i was spinning most of the time in the little s hairpin area =[ better rotors so i can hold the brakes down and atleast launch it at 4500 lol. damn auto

Yeah suspension I would like to do but I can't go any lower at all so can't really justify it... Plus I need new tyres now anyway :P

The surface is pretty good Taylor, it's just if you cut the edge of the track in some spots it's a sharp edge where all the grass has died. You can feel the rough edge on the tyres... Or you could just try and drive in the middle of the track instead of racing lines on a 1 lane wide track :)

Thought the exact same thing when I first saw the photo on Facebook! :lol: Huge squat. Though Karl raises a good point with it being on a small rise, would definitely hold the squat a bit longer.

Still, great photo's guys, good to hear you had fun.

Dan Suspension would be worthwhile even if you are not lower because you can go stiffer which would be the improvement you are after.
