Be keen to see a few photos of your wrapping exercise - funnily enough my could do with a new wrap. The gravel isn't solely to blame, but a great excuse :D .

Great video & photo! The gravel sure was fun, looks like you had a ton more grip than I did. What width tyre were you running?
I suspect I wound my coils up too much and added too much preload.

CHeck out this thread from when I vinyled it last time... I'll take pics this time as well...

viewtopic.php?f=6&t=2135&hilit=vinyl&start=10

I seemed to have reasonable grip - despite the only changes I made were to wind the pre-load up about 1cm all round, and put on the ancient and well used rally tyres (185 at back, 165 at front)... I didn't even soften the suspension at all - I figured I should change as little as possible.

I honestly can't imagine I could have gotten it much better - although I never drove on gravel competitively before it felt incredibly well composed and predictable and I had supreme confidence in it doing what I wanted.
