Good. Because my girlfriend falls asleep in my rattle trap. So she is no good for reviews.

For some that could be a valid data point

I think its more of a data point on my girlfriend.

She likes the ultrashield aluminum seats "because they hold her in, and the there are headrests (aka shoulder supports)"

Delrin bushings did nothing to make my car worse, I don't know how they would do on a car that isn't already a rattle trap.

Been a while, too long in fact. Because Reasons, had the car on the track yesterday for the first time in about 15 months. Basically a shakedown, but some observations.

At SMPGP, I hop a couple of kerbs. Where there was a bit of thumping before, this time there was a definite rattle sound. All looked ok, but the car will go on a hoist for a check out.

Times were good, on old rubber (AO50/M compound). The fast T1 was faster than a full aero equipped MX5 that I was in company with, even though I was running naked aero-wise (don't ask). Overall, about a tenth off the previous outing on that track. Subjectively, hard to say, given that this car is much rawer than the road MX5 that I competed with last year, which had me spending quite a bit of time playing myself back in. However even at this stage it felt good, very responsive. A little early to tell whether spring/shocks will need changes as a result of the freer movement, I am happy to let that emerge (or not, as the case may be) over future outings.
