Coram, after the bomb hole I either do 2 things:

1st nail it to 102 mph on the click and gradually come off throttle to settle the car or 2nd keep throttle pinned to 95mph on the clock all the way round, so slower first off but quicker at the bottom.

Riches, end of pit straight is either late brake and turn in or use the line on the pit straight to use brakes lightly then turn in and on power.

Your need to build up to it.

So, the cars not felt right since the cage and springs, despite numerous geo's it just wants to pull left and try and kill me. Its got grip but likes to snap.

After speaking to Ray and hearing glowing reviews I booked in with Matt from Spires.

Arrived at 7am:

I explained to Matt over the phone the problems I was having on track, we went through everything.

First off was to get the car in the air and check everything was ok, like a surgeon would do before he performs his magic.

Matt then took the wheels off, we found drivers front spring was pretty much compressed.
He bought it down 23mm, then made sure anti roll bar was flat.

Next up was setting the scales up so they were perfectly flat:

Then get the old bird on them and get her set up to 50% weight distribution:

I arrived with a decent amount of fuel as thats where abouts I am on track:

I thought this was pretty decent with all boot coverings, carpet headlining etc.

Obviously has to be done with a custom Costa in:

Next up was the Camber, Castor and toe. Castor had never been touched so spent some time getting them loose.

Oli popped in, cheers geezer, see you on track in the new year!!!

Then a final one before departing:

From my 80 miles back home the car no longer wants me to wipe out pedestrians.

What I liked is that Matt asked me what I was after, talks through all changes he is doing and why. He loved my enthusiasm, that must of been after 3 coffees.

So looking forward to trying this car on track and would highly recommend him.

Malc's (birthday boy's) new bttc slicks should still fit fine under the arches.

Gave car a wipe over ready for Silverstone at the weekend. Looking forward to feeling how she handles now after Spires setup.

So what was the reason for it handling so bad ?

You touched on it, but haven't really explained ?

Poorly set up.

Drivers spring was 23mm compressed, wonky arb, car steered to the left.

I just drove it like a go kart.
