Again, you will only see a difference with cars that have higher than the '67 F1 pressures.  Those are the Sports and Can-Am cars.... and the upcoming '55 F1s.  :)

Quoting Lee:  "The patch's effect will mainly be seen for those cars that use optimum pressures greatly different from 24 psi.  For the '67 F1 cars which use 24 psi for the front and 26 psi for the rear, I doubt you'll see or feel any difference at all."

It is amazing how good the placebo effect is though if you really want to feel that something is different. :)

Well... if I wouldn't misunderstood, in the case of the 1967's cars it's not 100% placebo, because rear tyres have 26 psi instead of 24 as the optimal pressure...

So, the behaviour of the front tyres should be exactly the same with or without the patch, but not that of the rear ones. Am I wrong?

Marcos.

Marcos, you are not wrong.  It's just that the difference between 24 psi and 26 psi for the rear tires is so small that you'll probably not notice any difference with or without the patch.

I assume this wouldn't do anything to the 67 Historical V2 mod?

Correct, Pete.  It's only useful for the '67 Sports Cars and '71 Can-Am mods both Can-Am mods.... and the upcoming '55 F1.

Right you are!  I was just mentioning which mods will use the pressure bug patch that was developed for the '66CA.  Thanks for keeping me "on track".  :)
