Did the mk1 action day at blyton again last weekend, was a great day, did loads of laps of the track (it was quiet all day!) and gave the car a thorough workout. Only had to stop as i had worn the tyres out! The lump of rubber behind the engine mount has completely cured the wheel hop i was getting last year and along with the rear ARB and Kyb dampers i could corner much harder than before. Theres still a bit of body roll which could be cured by lowering and some red dot cones on the front but I will live with it for the sake of comfort on the road. No problems with the car, looking forward to wales now

I was told it was lifting a rear wheel off the ground on the tight corners, arb definitely working then!

no video this year as i couldn't be bothered, wish i had now so i could compare how much quicker the car was. I was able to accelerate much sooner and harder coming out of corners as i wasn't getting the wheel hop and i was going in to corners much faster as there was less body roll and the tyres weren't rubbing.
