Let go in Folly and then the unloaded front tyre locked by Avon Rise. It is odd that it doesn't look that fast on the Video :o

I can see that now, you can just see the rear left drop in Folly as you pass the apex and the tiny 'puff' as the floorpan touched the ground. Any idea what speed you are doing at that point? Does/did the datalogger record the maximum G load?

you going to have the chance to test before playing again?

You need a big GP circuit like silverstone so you can apply load for extended durations. Big sweepy corners.
If it doesnt go pop there you'll probably be ok for the rest of the season.

also probably best not cut the corners as the downforce and the wheel bumping up to full close might do it again.

Getting uprated pushrods made this Sunday and a new suspension strategy by a company who have run prototypes at Le Mans. I don't envisage any further pushrod issues.
