Dont get me wrong if its not needed its not there but if I have had something fail which takes a few mins to replace and I have got a spare I would carry it. With entry fee's for forest events running at approx 450 and thats before petrol and tyres etc I cant afford to waste the times when I do compete.
The cars that win the events I compete in will be worth 6 figures. The cars winning the class I am entering will be worth 20000+
Funding it myself, enjoyment is the main driver.
It is very, very good fun though.

Well done for competing and enjoying fruitbat - I know what it is like because it was the same in drag racing back in the 70's and 80's when I raced. I got the cars as light as possible because I could afford that, rather than spending cubic money chasing extra horsepower

These people are reccommended on this forum

I think they do sud and 33 panels.

AHM do carbon fibre front wings with a flared arch.

. . . . . . which certainly would NOT help you slow down and probably wouldn't help round corners!
