Looks good. A "before" and "after" would be interesting.
Please post technical questions on the forum, not by personal message. Thanks!

Nice, now can you get some feedback from the "steering wheel" to improve the driving experience :)

Hi,
   I have half an idea how to get feedback to the user through the transmitter but thats a way off yet.

   For before and after videos I have some from the track but whenever any of us drive someone else car we are too cautious so the system doesn't have a lot of work. I did a few laps of my own deliberately keeping the power on when I shouldn't, the car was able to keep it together for four or five laps without me lifting of at all. Next week I will get someone else to film while I give the car a proper workout.

This comment from one of the testers sums it up for me - 'It was an M-04?! Really?!' The M04 is a notoriously difficult car to drive and this guy didn't realize that that was what he had been driving until this morning !
