Nice write up, as soon as I read you were waiting for apex to open it up I was hoping you'd learn to open up sooner. Even being on the street I slow for the corner then roll on to it in the first third of it as the chassis really seems to stabilize that way! Look forward to reading about more track excursions, and following you on the road to faster and faster lap times!

I wouldn't say I was waiting for the apex to open the throttle, but yeah, with my R6, I barely had to crack the throttle just before the apex to settle the bike and start my exit. With the R3, I can really crank into the middle of the throttle long before the apex and it just begs for more throttle. That's one thing I was very excited about with the small bike racing, it really amplifies your weaknesses which should help correct them. :)

Great write up.

I just tried to install my Penske shock and found I had to have the hose fitting going into the body turned 90 degrees in order to get past the battery box I made (where the original box had been actually)

I guess Penske says to have the fitting running straight out the back of the body.

That's annoying. I'm kinda just hoping it will fit easily when I try to put it on Saturday night :)
