All loaded up.
Last minute decision to swap the slicks onto the rain wheels...see what happens. Will be nice to back to back compare to the a052s. If it rains im fooked.

These are the Rainsports SR. Pls note 1 area quite low from a lock up. Theyve had me driving them so pretty torn up.. good for 1 track day at least.

Well Pembrey was awesome for me, not so for othrtsvin our group. 7 laps my mates k20 in his Civic started knocking..back on the trailer.
Its techincal circuit. Apart from the start finish straight its feels like your always in a turn so zero rest atall. The straight has a rh 2nd gear hairpin at the end which is very tricky. Think i got it right once. 3 downshifts after choosing your braking point.
I spun once after hairpin putting the power in 3rd gear and twice on the grass lawnmower style start finish straight overcooking previous corner.
Long long day 3 hrs drive each way towing.
I swapped onto the slicks which shortened gearing which i didnt like as more gear changes and with the slicks understeer if really pushing. 200 slicks pretty much on par with 225 a052s.
The 10ae was great...until puncture in ns2rs and as this had to drive home. My mate took the car to get it repaired. So slicks onto the 10ae and me back on 052.
As my mate had never driven on slicks b4...i took it out....WOW... like a scalextric slot car. Not enough power to break traction but immense cornering speed and fun...my 2 mates ( both now engine blows) shared it for rest of day...they loved so much fun.
For some reason it was my turn to pisstaking and allday i got the mx5 hairdresser jokes...and the move over windscreen banner is my italian hairdressing salon revo evom....
But at 3.30pm but mx5s where the last 1s running. Lol. Bmw exhaust broke. Tiger exhaust broke Civic blown engine...lol.
Bmw fixed with jubilee clip hangars.
In summary cars fine i believe ( need todo some checks). Decisions need to be made on tyres...3 weeks til thruxton. Get the exhaust on and map tweak. I had a good ontrack battle with a 220bhp SC mk2...and tbh. He had me just...no aero and 205 ar1s...mmm
And camera mount. Shaking moving about need a solution..may have some vids...
Ohh and track shut at 4.30pm.. nasty crash start finish straight a 285bhp k24 powered s2000 went into barriers 3 times. Its totally fooked...driver ok but totally gutted...looked like £25k build tome.

Picked up the 3" kraken full exhaust from Josh at unit 3.
Good excuse to take the 7 for a run.

True, but my turbo kit took over 5 months, I dont want to be waiting that long.

I was at Pembrey Saturday & Sunday, what a great circuit. Think it's my new favorite.

If you attach the camera to the roll bar, I found a ring of duct tape underneath the mount stops the vibration.

Lots of sprint guys n girls waiting outside to come in as we left just after 6ish. Delayed packing up due the bad crash at end of the day.
