Was still getting understeer, but only had 2deg of caster and have now gone to 4 deg. The diff was still giving me inside wheel spin, and have just changed over the diff for another, fingers crossed. Still struggling to get tire temps up. Temps from 30 deg to 48deg.
I'm hoping these are medium compound slicks and will get some softs next time. Got down to a 1.38. Going back to the Island soon and hoping for some warmer weather. lol.
Hear is a link to my second session at Winton. Listen for the inside wheel spin coming out of the left hander going onto the newer back straight. And lots of understeer on the tight right hander leading onto the old back straight .

Looks like a little more action than the 240, nice catch on the exit of the left hand sweeper
Do you have shortened steering arms?

I'm using the R32 diff 4.1 ratio. Winton is a hard track to get all the gears matched to corner speed and revs. Cheers.

Maybe more caster still? Ever considered running mediums on the fronts and softs on the rears Gordo? Mine wears the smaller fronts more so that's what I'm thinking of doing.

I'm very tire limited with a wheel size of 17x 11 and 12. No one makes a treaded competition tire for these. If I had 18s it would be great.

Looks like great fun and love the NA sound - I used the 4.4:1 with a 1:1 fifth at Winton, so you could go a lot shorter - I had a 5.1:1 in the sports 2000, but then you have to change them every event. That sounds like a lot of tyre. I had trouble getting 295 on 16's warm, was thinking of going smaller, back to 260's, but was looking for a soft compund
Guess what, the Zed is running again, CR box back in, new fuel pumps, injector seals, brakes, clutch (lots of rubbers)
Luckily the suspension is all rosejointed...
Started straight away, sounds crisp.
Looking for somewhere to take it for a run - any ideas? 95Dba needed
Still working on spoilers and deciding if to go to back to your look or stick with the G-nose
that's the next job

Were you talking camber or caster? Fronts shd be about 4 degrees negative camber, rear between 2-3 -ve camber, 2 degrees positive caster all round. A bit of tow out can crispen up the turn in but make it a bit darty under brakes

Peter I'm looking into getting some spacers and running the GTR wheels as a comparison

Man I love watching your driving videos Gordo!
It's like you have an extra 3 ft of track width compared to mine, so much cooler and smooth. And the way you dart into open doors before corners, when you can't pass them on the straights due to straight line speeds. I'd be stuck behind them for another lap! (or more)
Looks like the cars getting better each time and you're gaining confidence with it too
