Since the next few events planned are on tarmac, I thought I would look at the suspension settings. Keeping the Micra road rally legal means we can’t fit coil over shocks to the rear, at the front we can change the ride height easily, but on the rear it means changing springs.
At the moment we use forest spec springs, adding a +15mm alloy spacer for rough forestry work. However on tarmac this leads to the front being lower than the front. Speaking to Matt Humphris I now have these brand new tarmac spec progressive springs, these will lower the rear by 80mm and stiffen the rear by 20lb which should help improve handling.
Looks like it will be a busy weekend ahead sorting things out for the Sprint & then Woodbridge Stages.
