Re: LED lights - Legal?

I'm an amateur photographer so familiar with the concept of Lux and "illumination" as in how well something is lit.

Re: 4.77 Diff from R3

"The car feels great 7k revs onwards, but past 4th gear you find yourself outside the best power-band" you will also be topside of 100mph For road driving 2nd and 3rd gear are more than sufficient for some fun on A and B roads. 4th gear can be just a brief visit on most tracks too.
