A very wet track at Mont Tremblant

Thought I'd share this nice photo of my last outing!

Awesome picture. I'll be there on July 6, 7 & 8. I hope it doesn't rain - more for the time between driving sessions than the driving!

Makes a huge difference! Much more planted, very little roll. A bit harder on the butt on Montreal streets, mind you.

A friend of mine (Cheese on this forum) had redone his suspension with the Bilstein sport struts and H&R lowering springs, I rode with him earlier this year at CMP, it was very nice and the car felt great. I am becoming convinced that some moderate stiffening, either with these types of lowering springs, or firmer anti-roll bars (the approach I have done) is a key upgrade for these cars.
