    Hey Pat. Yeah, Friday did not go as planned. Like I posted, changed rear wing angle for third session. Lost rear grip at t1. 205k logged at apex. Missed the wall but dirt mound made a mess of everything below the sills. Floor is buggered as is the front subframe. The pic of skirts, undertray/diffuser and exhaust shows how they look. I removed what looked like a 2 foot long earth core sample from the exhaust. Lucky it didn't roll.
    Have new carbon floor on the way. Will do some pulling and get it sorted. Will carry on ch#002

    Pat it could have been worse. Amazing it wasn't. Amazing it didn't flip. Amazing it missed the wall.

    We got out a lot better than what you did that's for sure.

    Feck yes! I think our best is 209kmh. Tilton went through at that speed last year too which surprised me. Thought they'd be a bit quicker.

    Floor/Diffuser is on. Skirts are at the paint shop. Front end has been tweaked a touch.
    Was let down by the shop that was meant to do the TI exhaust system. That is pretty much it. Just a couple of lose ends. Will be ready for testing on October 17.

    Yes Ti exhaust = $$$$

    It hurts knowing that this will be the second system as the first was left at SMP T1 6 weeks ago...

    I have seen it coming together since the build first started.

    Insight used our tow service to get the car to Wakefield. We did lend a small hand through out the day but it was just a small hand.
