1 min read

Aero Racing presented for the new 2023 Season Test and Tune to verify some small changes made to the Top Alcohol setup over the off season.

Minor weight, and engine position changes to enable straighter passes was completed by the crew, as well as regular servicing and engine tear down.

First pass saw the altered shake the tyres at the top of first gear. A pedal by PC got the car going again, but one parachute popped out dragging the car over to the right. A 6.75 was the result.

Back in the pits, PC looked at the data and tried to work a way around the track conditions. “The wheel speed was low until about 1.4 seconds – then it took off over our targets” said PC, “So I took timing out in that are and turned all the fuel leanouts off – just to get an A to B pass happening”.

Second pass saw the altered complete a dead straight 5.95 pass that brought smiles to all the crew. Generally we were happy with the days testing.
