Just wondering about corner balancing would you notice on a road car especially with condition of Australian roads?or is done because of the changes made to the suspension?to ensure set up is correct.

Thanks 

Nick

Dr Fowler would be best placed to answer that.

Mainly done for race car especially cars with very stiff spring rate, the higher the spring rate a small change in height would cause a much bigger imbalance in weight distribution.

Tacho is back from the instrument maker today. Apparently had a faulty board. This is the last restored piece to go into the car. Now we have a couple of adjustments, final operations test and checks of all components/functions, professional detail, professional photos…then transport to me in Canberra.

Yes it was an amazing journey and I am so happy that the car is with me. Special thanks to Locky at CAR for the project management for delivery of the turn key project. 
 

Going for rego inspection tomorrow morning and then, if there’s no hiccups, it’s straight to the registry for new plates.

excited to get out there.

What setting (soft/mid/firm) have you got on the adjustable shocks?

Interested to hear as to what you recommend after driving around with them at different settings..

First day without rain and first day to go out for a drive. Jeebus it pulls hard! Once again, thanks to Locky Fowler at CAR for the entire project management of this vehicle. 

It's wild how it changes shades in the sun... And yes it's not slow at all!

It's been a massive pleasure to build it for you and I miss having it in the workshop already...

Jon this is beautiful. I’m looking forward to seeing it in the flesh.
Locky you should be very proud of your teams work on this car. All you need now is a YouTube Chanel and you will be big time.

Hey Wags, just wondering where you bought the USB outlet you installed under the cigarette lighter in your car. Want to do the same thing but all I can find online is USB's with coloured lights, bells, gauges and whistles - not the look I want.

Cheers Paul
