The very first place we drove our tank at speed was Mangalore airport here in Victoria. The transitions were enough that after about three runs to about 100mph I was done, I felt like I had been kicked by a horse and was worried another might injure my spine. Remember though that we have only an inch of clearance and the body was bottoming out. It was a sobering start, then the very first drive on the salt I got head shake.

Thankfully, once that was sorted it was a dream drive......be prepared for some disappointment before then though......

Hard at both ends Shimmy, bit of flex under the front, that , on the concrete was the problem because it allowed the body to bottom out on the transitions, I've bottomed out on the salt and had it airborne after hitting the creek that crosses the track at the six at Gairdner but nothing compared to the bottoming out on the concrete, that was nasty embarassed
