Regarding the gearbox breather we are thinking the pipe may be getting airflow over it helping to draw out fluid so going to reroute it and vent it into the oil catch tank see if that solves it
Did look at the video later in the race and the brakes seem to be pulling straight so proably cold brakes caused the movement. Still to understand why after a race the offside front wheel has a lot more dust and streaking than the nearside. Took the rear brakes off today as the dust seals are totally degraded, brittle and broken up which is surprising as not been on long.



TTR recommend to me No dust seals on the back for race cars --- maybe because they overheat and fail quickly ?

Hi Rohan
That seems logical as the front AR calipers dont have them.
