Re: Paddleshift

Might be an idea to ask on Uphill Racers as hillclimbers and sprinters get up to all manner of engineering escapades.

Some of the 397 to 301s with conventional boxes seem to have done ok in the past.

Dammit, accidentally agreed with Kevan. Promise I won't do that again.

Re: HANS devices (aka FHRs) to become mandatory next year

Peter - you mention the 20 & 30 degree ones, do you find 30 degrees the "right" angle for both the Anson and the Dallara? ie the 40 degree isn't required?

Some of the comments refer to gear changes. The above is William Hewland's take on it.

BTW if you need to use the clutch to change up something's wrong.

Re: Gear Ratio change - assistance required

it sounds to me as though "How to change your Hewland gears" might make a nice Saturday Night Social session along similar lines to the first aid idea.

Always happy to drop Emma in it!
