Final outing of the year and Ratty still in one piece.
I need better rubber and some more tracktime but it's been a very good year for RATS' Racing in the making ;)
Who knows ? but one day maybe...maybe ...

Lee, think you are on to a winner now with vents in the rear glass.
You've blocked up the side vents? We're they ineffective.

Still playing but now know what works and what doesn't .I may well just be overthinking it as car continues to just keep going lap after lap without any really big issues.
Water temp is staying within limits,boost delivery stays constant and the main issue is I've run out of grip so new 888 going on for a test at Donington on the 3rd Dec.
New product just in for RATS' Racing.Will be putting a set of these on and experimenting some more with airflow ....

New rubber seemed to work well but was very slippy first thing and I managed to spin first lap out.No damage.

Martin finally lost his JIL cherry and was soon flying round giggling ...I think he was impressed with it :up

Then some old rubber let go and was game over but another really good shakedown.Just a split hose to the heads.

Cheers Paul.
Yes for an old lump it goes well and we think the setup and brakes are there or thereabouts with just the rear to be made a bit softer .
Box swap over the Winter and poss a turbo upgrade with a little faster spool.

That's the plan .
Long time coming but perhaps next year at least one or two outings to dip the toe in ...I need to get my licence first in the Spring and then see if we can get in for this or similar.
