    Great work as usual Mark....
    I’d never noticed that crash feature on my car but just looking it’s there....

    Did you attend VMax or was it autobahn?

    Cheers Mike

    Testing was on an autobahn, two up and fully laden. I'd like to see what it would really do but I now don't trust the flimsy looking Fiat catch! I'll have to investigate further.

    -131kg is a seriously good number especially for a soft top that retains all its creature comforts.

    I can see that Ferrari struggled to get 80kg out of the standard car for the 16M and recently only 90kg out of the Pista yet journo’s called it a ‘whopping’ 90kg so they were impressed.

    Your thread has been brilliant to de-mystify a lot of the Ferrari ‘secret sauce’ and I think you have ended up with a better car personally.

    Do you think you will be able to leave alone now and enjoy the driving?

    Thanks Chris. I have some suspension tuning to do but the big jobs are out of the way now, or at least I thought so - my engine man just emailed to say that he's picked up a good donor engine for £1k and is ready to run some simulations for me. This would make an engine build very convenient
