Some progress. The rear mounts are done. The front mounts are half way done. The 'air dam' is now glued solid to the splitter itself. Next up is finishing the mounts and painting it all black.

Some (crappy, it's night) pics of the rig mounted for testing. I ran a wing only last time at the track I am going to visit tomorrow so curious what this brings.

Side spats will need to wait. I need to find good material.

My super duper new low rider trailer allows me to just drive on with the splitter never touching anything.

Two more daylight pics:

Mixed results today: track wasn't the fastest ever, yet I managed to shave another second of my personal best with this car. Front turns in great, tail feels a bit loose so I may need more AOA.

Last year, with just the wing, the car felt more planted in the rear and more understeery.

Exactly what was to be expected.

Then the gearbox exploded...
