        Had some more fun @ Wakie last weekend, first corner last Thursday, done a beautiful 180% & then snapped in the opposite a 360%, I still don't know as to what happened, but's thats me.
        Then on the Saturday with official timing I had a bigger loose, that ended with a massive air jump & nose dive into earth.
        Lucky old fart me, no damage, which I can't believe.
        But I kept on trying & had some fun, no P.B.'s, just some 1'10", which I hadn't had for 12 months.
        The track was icy cold with no SUN all day, bugger.

          The Acetal bushes still feel & look the goods from outside, yet to take them out & have a proper look.

          • The 360 was probably cold rear tyres catching you out....

                Trying to get less bump steer when accelerating hard on uneven surfaces.
                Found a marked improvement with changing the lower control arm front bushes.

                These were custom made by Fulcrum (95 duro) & still in good condition after a number of years.

                I had these made from a product called Acetal (commercial nylon) after doing some researching.
                Time will tell as to how they survive in the Little Blue Girl.


                Hoyhoy.

                Just pulled them out for a look & after two trips to Wakefield Park towing a trailer & doing several full days, they came out like new, so back in they go.
                These bushes just don't flex @ all & are self lubricating.
