I have neither....i did have a rear diffuser...but it got ripped off at about 100mph coming back from Hayward Rotary. Think the air pressurised it through the trans tunnel....

Ahh yeah, really there are three things you need to run a rear diffuser without that happening, the chin spoiler to stop too much air getting under the front and into the engine bay, some vented side panels to reduce the amount of air that go down the tunnel and some holes in the rear above the diffuser to reduce the pressure that does make it...  I'm not allowed the holes in the rear as per blue book for the class but so far so good!

Its all good mate...i used about a month ago at Castle Coombe she didnt miss a beat. Not sure what im doing with atmo...the FD  has sort off taken over my priorities and funds atmo...
I wouldnt mind trying a sprint init as think its best suits the capabilities of the car.

Most events are around £100 entry (apart from Goodwood!!) but get down to £80 for some airfield events.  You already have everything you need so apart from fuel to get you there and back it can be a cheap day out.

Next up for me is Debden on the 8th, I think the entry is only £80 and I can put you up the night before about an hour away (Parents house) for a nice start to the morning.

Let me know if you are interested, I think the Westie deserves an outing hey?

Best get one on before it comes apart then!!!

I was under the impression the live axle worked well and they only moved to IRS for on road compliance reasons (bit more forgiving on the bumps)...

Its awful on road due to roads round here potholed awfully that i worry that im gonna hit a bump and end up in a hedge...but on track its pretty good...combe has been semi resurfaced and felt pretty good but inits current guise i dont think i can drive it any faster...with irs comes the ability to add some camber to get the slicks working and some better rear end handling.
Dont need more power

Yeah engine built for racing 30 hrs warranty...ecu locked with trace on...they can see temps pressure and rpms b4 valdating your warranty....must be rebuilt at 30 hrs else expensive engine parts become scrap...think about 4k a build. That was for the huyabusa 1300 lump.

30hrs is more than you think when racing, so it is not as bad as it seems when you look at it as a day and half.

Sprinting for a season is probably only 15hrs run time...  Two seasons from a race engine would do me OK, its probably what I will get from my engines before I will tear them down to check all is ok and refresh.

It is an expensive hobby racing, if you are making money you would be at least partially tearing down the engine after every one or two weekends,  gotta make sure everything is still in spec to maximize those 10ths!
