  1. Yep, Winton is a pretty bumpy track. We still don’t have the front tuned properly, but we’re pretty close. We’re carrying lot more sprung weight than Catavolt, who despite their -100 kW disadvantage still managed a quick ride. It will be interesting to see how it goes with a more powerful hub, provided the hub’s weight is the same or less. Unsprung weight on the rear is no doubt better than unsprung weight on the front.
