Minirod practise session

Postby Matth93 » Sun Apr 18, 2021 8:48 am

We went to Swaffham last night for a practise session with the mini’s. It’s a small oval with quite short straights so as soon as your winding it up your braking for the corner. The track was a bit slippery making the back of the car a bit lively but I really enjoyed it and with a few tweaks the car was getting a bit better. Here’s some videos from the racing ……… sorry practise :lol:

Nice one Matt, looks like a nice way to test steering geometry and set ups :D

Yes it was good we played with tyre pressures etc and the car felt better by the end of the night although I think I can get more out of it yet.
When we got to the track the electric power steering pump gave up so the steering was pretty heavy on my car all night which at times didn’t help. So I need to look at that hopefully it’s a easy fix.
