Not a bad day today for us.
One car went home after 4 laps, bloody Gripper diffs :-(

Did I spy a Saxo involved in something towards the end of the day? Down at Hizzy's??

Yeah, I think the Maurituis Blue one left some parts on the track.

Had an awesome day. Was really impressed with the car. I need to set up the geometry a bit better and sort the brake bias and a few other little niggly bits, but overall, I was really chuffed with the way today went.

Wish we'd got another hour or so before the rain hit, but hey, that's what you get when you book trackdays at this time of year!

Shame about that diff... It' didn't sound too healthy! Need to get your over fuelling sorted too, when you passed me, the smell of fuel was quite obvious!! To be fair though, you were still bloody quick as it was.

Again?? Wow, you've had some mega problems with gripper diffs! Not thought about going with a different company? Might even be worth having a quaiffe albeit a step down from the gripper. However you might be able to finish races haha! Gutted

I was going to suggest that yesterday. You said the gripper gives a 2 second a lap advantage but... To finish first, first you have to finish.

I run a Quaife in mine now. Finished the last two races (and trackday) with that fitted.
The Gripper that broke was built and fitted a while ago, it was the cars first shakedown. I think that it will be wearing a Quaife in the future too.

Does sound like a good plan. Wonder what the issue is that means they keep breaking?
