Stopped sulking and decided to get on with it. Fitted the gt2560 also purchased some scales and turn plates to properly set the suspension up!

Finally put the scales to use and set the corner weight. Total weight of the car was 662kg with half tank of fuel

Have you added your weight and put that in the drivers seat? Then you can corner weight the car - easier to do with a mate sitting in drivers seat , otherwise you have to stack a lot of weight to simulate the driver

I'm all ears jack , and I'm trying to click ! So if you put it right to compensate for lack of a 10 stone passenger , what happens when the missing passenger gets in the car ,, after you have replaced them ?

As it currently was without a passenger full throttle was nearly impossible with a passenger it was noticeably better, also the track day I did at castle Combe it was say going around a left hand corner better than a right it might of been the other way canít remeber the tracking castor and camber was set up the only thing that wasnít was corner weighting your probably correct when it comes to adding a passenger the corner weight was a waste of time but it was no fun driving with out a passenger as it was near enough impossible to drive full chat
