    Its been a few months. I went on holiday for 2 months so missed 2 rounds. Upon return and no sale of the car and rego ran out I needed to logbook it before the last round/nationals. So I had 3 weekends to make and install a cage and do all the other bits for logbooking. I managed to get it all done and the logbook arrived the Monday before. Ally cage weighed maybe 10kgs and the steel cage weighs 50kgs. I decided to buy some new tyres as I was sick of heatcycling killing any chance I had of running a quick time after the first session. I ended up buying 245/45/16 Hankook Z214s in medium. They are 20mm thinner and 15mm higher so both contribute to slower times. Im hoping they go close to the old times. I did Targa High Country again in the Porsche. We had an issue on day 1 and missed 4 stages. At the nationals the car was epic understeer from the new setup and I did 1.06.3 in the first session on Saturday so was super excited about what was to come. It then rained so no more edecent times on Sat. Somehow I didn't manage to beat that time on SUnday with quickest again 1.06.3. I was convinced it would do a 5 easily. Anyway I ended up 3rd in class by 0.1secs and 0.4secs back to 4th so was pretty close. So I finished the season in 2nd and 3rd at the Nationals which is pretty sweet.

    Unless you have swapped the rotors around, they will not clear the dust efficiently. direction of slots. Apart from that its just a few minor things. Brakes will work no matter where the calipers are mounted. My minor points, and they are minor: Front mounted calipers are in the low pressure air zone & are shrouded by the rim, cooling issue. Calipers mounted to the rear do not get tangled up in sway bars & links. Calipers to the rear are behind the centre of the wheels so balance is improved. They look better ?????
