Just a little, although the video pick it up way louder that it was. It hasn't been fired up for about a year or so though :D :oops:

After hunting down and fixing a fair few problems with ancillaries, finally managed to have a play with the fun stuff, like launch control....

Looks like a lot of fun. Presumably a lot of weight out back ? How does that handle ?

At the moment it's understeer city, but I think it's mainly the plate diff being too snatchy and the front arb is harder than ideal (I originally set the sizing based on an open diff for traction) - it doesn't help it has steering brakes and the diff overwhelms them at the moment too.
Usually it's not too bad really apart from struggling a bit on side slopes.
