With only a couple of small jobs to tidy up this episode I thought we could have a walk around the workshop and checkout the tools I've been using to build the Stratos tarmac Rally car

Next Video, with the mounts finished off in a previous video, seemed rude not to actually fit some ARB's

Inspiring!  Car seemed to enjoy Winton.  All ok?  How many laps did you get in?

Curious to understand "a couple of mil toe-in" at the front.  Is that setting to dial in a bit of initial turn-in understeer?  Do you reckon the car will be very pointy given the short wheel base/heavy rear end mass bias?
