Is it possible to set up the suspension without the engine? I would of thought that with nothing in the shell it will sit higher and then with the extra weight in it the angles then change? Which is why your meant to be in the car when its being set up? No?

Do you want your project moved across to the dark side now? ;D

Great Idea - Please get this finished for the ring - I will personally pay for a lap as a passenger!


Well I won't have my girlfriend with me this year, so you'll have to pay me in kind...
...unless you puke up a tree all day like she did!

Well my girlfriend will be there, im sure we can work something out! ;D

Don't worry, all this has been thought through Jammy.
...and yes a move to the dark side please.
Can we please change the title too: Monty the Rwd Yamaha R1 engined tarmac eating Minus
If that's do-able?
... and yes I am very worried about the time constraints!

You have to edit the title in your first post to change the title, I'm a mod but it won't let me :w00t:

Moved to non engined minis. :D
