“With all of the torque from the Simworx steering box it’s actually created a bit of slack in the whole frame and now it flops around and isn’t really rigid so I’m also losing a bit of steering feel from it.
“I did an Instagram poll to see if people thought I should upgrade the camp chair to a race seat and do a proper frame and it was 50/50 so I reckon it’s time for an upgrade and get chassis #002 ready for the second half of the series.”
Kelly found the going tough at Circuit of the Americas last night, involved in multiple incidents throughout the event.
“When you start at the back of the grid it’s almost impossible to avoid the carnage on lap one, same as last week,” he said.
“Every race we were caught up in incidents on the first lap which makes things tricky because you get damage and that actually slows the car down a lot so you have to pit early and then you run out of tyres well before the end of the race so that’s not ideal.
“On the plus side I was able to enjoy some good clean battles with a few guys out there which was fun, when you’re genuinely wheel-to-wheel racing on these things it is intense and quite enjoyable.”
