Thanks for the feedback gents. I'm going to run as it is now but I will have the option to adjust it trackside, and as Martin said, take out the bump stops. I'll keep going until Pembrey but I'll take a view on more videos after that. I'm thinking of building another car this year and I'd like to move onto that project.

Today I fix the issue of getting the car on and off the trailer.

Hi Alex

I used the Black Epoxy Repair Filler for filling the edges of the carbon wing endplates on my car. Easy to work with, drys rock hard and is sandable so would probably be ideal for filling the cut off ends of the diffuser. Link below, you will likely only need the smallest pot, it does go a long way.

Hi Alex,

Well, you're getting there! I've always used jubilee clips for the rack stops... cheap, effective and light. Also, the brake light sensor takeoff looks a bit vulnerable to vibration and being knocked off by some stray debris - it would be better to have it somewhere in the chassis and supported IMHO.

Ah, I already bought my rackstops when I read your comment Peter! I'm going eventually to change the brake light switch to a motorcycle style one which is built into the banjo bolt.

Ah yes, the bike style ones look much better - make sure that you order the right one - I'm not sure whether the High Spec calipers are metric or imperial, but you can get both types of switches.

I hope the shakedown goes well!
