Championship decider at Combe in a couple of weeks. I’m leading the championship at the moment but my arch rival won last time out there & I was 0.05 behind. I need to be within 0.59 to keep my lead & take the championship.
No I didn’t which was why some of the lines were a bit ragged as I couldn’t slow down enough. The pedal hits the stop a couple of times in the vid. I think the master cylinder is knackered- the brake temperatures are all where I guess they should be (230C front/140C rear).
Still, 85.79 was good enough for 2nd place by 0.05..... Which gave me the championship!!!! Wooohoooo!!!!
JamesMk3: Rear left wheel bearing replaced. What a saga. Can now hear noise coming from front right, and alignment is completely knackered. FML.

wannabe: I've had both front bearings replaced on the missus' car over the past few months and it's STILL making a droning noise... lol. Need to check if the mechanic actually replaced the correct one the second time I took it in!!

FFS Corders: Are the wheels straight? Buckles can cause a drone

wannabe: Hmmm... That's an interesting idea... no wheel wobble on the missus' car, which I would have thought was a strong indicator of being out-of-round, but I guess they could be bent side-to-side..??

wannabe: Ooooh, interesting - thanks, Howard. I'll have to get the tyres swapped round to see if it makes a difference! I will be most annoyed if it is tyres, seeing as they are only a few months old...

howardb66: If it is the tyres, don’t chuck them away, try getting them shaved.

V6: I had an education in dampers today. I like expensive ones. Floaty, not bouncy for the win.

Zed.: that all depends on what you call 'expensive'
