The engineers recommissioning my competition sprint tell me its close to being ready.
They did say today that they needed to sort out the rather feeble axle tramp solution the car builder (a championship winning sud driver) had added along with the lower suspension but they could fabricate something to do the trick.
I was thrown a bit by this and if the proprietor wasn't a good family friend and if they did not have vast experience of tough performance fwd cars owned by enthusiastic drivers in rural Cumbria (lots of twisting b roads and hills and dips) I'd be sceptical.
I thought axle tramp was a feature of live axle rwd, but a quick hunt on the web says otherwise, axle tramp or something like it can exist in fwd too - I live and learn. I suppose on a lightweight car on soft tyres, tuned engine and lowered the conditions for axle tramp must be similar to rwd.
I imagine a number of the forum regulars have lowered cars with grippy rubber and motors far more than mine. Have others adopted axle tramp solutions and if so what does it look like?
