well my experimentation was a partial success.
definitely too much rebound as we suspected, but qr was the safest place to test it out.
wouldnt want the arse skipping around at mt cotton or lakeside.
anyway managed a new PB of 61.9 and the car definitely felt grippier with the stiffer rear end.
most of my times were low 62's and it has been a struggle to run that low since i changed the rear end.
I am going to drop another 10mm out of the rear ride height, cant take anymore height out without getting the grinder out, unfortunately. Will test the rebound settings in the middle at Mt cotton this weekend, and lakeside.
the car developed a rear end knock in the passenger ride with no noticeable driveline problems.
put it up on stands and everything looks good underneath so i dont know if its in the diff or just because i had the extra weight in the car, but didnt do it for the first few laps. seems to drive OK on the road so FIIK.
might have to open up the diff for a look, but would rather not if i can help it. anybody got a spare r180 ?
last 2 runs are probably the most interesting to watch.
