As I am unable to join in the racing action due to working hours, well it is more like sleeping hours due to work, I will put my hand up to help out. Best way to get more track time.

Hey OZFM Series test drivers, your mission if you choose to accept = Car: Mazda MX5 cup. Tracks: any of the series ones. Give us feedback about the car (does it need more grip/more power etc) anything. Cheers Stu

Sierra - Has an oversteer problem. Was okaaay at Bathurst, but around LM I was fighting the rear every corner. (Give it another 100kw, perfect drifter..)
Mustang - Handles fine, needs at least 15kw to keep up with the rest. Doesnt have any handling advantage for its lack of straught line pace.
635CSi - Perfecto.
E30 M3 - Was a smidge too taily in some places, and kept locking up the fronts.

Thats as much as I can test this weekend, heading out for dinner tonight and wont be home tomorrow during the day either.

So mustang needs update for bit more power
All builds are stock tune would they improve when drivers are able to tune them ?

Yeah most def.

All other cars were hitting 250~252kmh on Conrod, Mustang puffed out 242. But was lacking grunt everywhere.

Sierra needs some more tyre - is there any tyre width upgrades left?!
