lol. well, if you're making it look good Carl, I'll take one then!

Interesting about Tom's findings - I didnt realise it was too MUCH down force that caused him to go back to the normal style.
This might not be such a problem for me, as my normal summer racing is outdoors on dirt (i.e. not loads of grip)
Im thinking front downforce would work for me here, unlike Tom who Im assuming is running tighter astro tracks.?

Looks tasty mate. I definately want to try one. Good job.

Re: steps at rear - I actually dont mind them, but maybe modifying them to be more sweeping and organic as per your other lines on the shell?

Oh, and that nose looks about 9x longer than normal! Is this for the special "Pinnochio" signature edition of the Cat? hehehe

Looking good, I'll certainly pay you some of my hard earned pennies for the cougar one when they're done.
