Cars ready ish.. glass needs cleaning.. but brakes done. No sign of discs yet... will be rejected. Not prepared to except lack lustre customer service from start to finish. Leaky hoses that if known leak could be supplied ptfe dipped as i advised. Wrong disc spigot rings in box...and then disc cracking... replacements discs coming up 2 weeks and no sign yet...and me chasing 4 times... piss poor imo.
Im due a refund of £142.00 when there returned i hope that goes seamless... but i wont hold my breath. Going forward these will be used tomoz then spares in the mondo...ill sort bells from someone.

Lol... old wheels...then i put on new wheels with a052 turned so inside out. the old wheels are grey now thanks to mintex 1155s and cadwell. Brakes were great once the discs went shiny.
Was flying but about a second of pace tried ragged and smooth think me not the car but car did feel looser than usual...ive a few things to check.
I still think Thruxton best circuit so far. .

So 2 vids in afternoon on borrowed sd card as mine full up an no thruxton vids as full of donny doh!
Still fast but....
about 1 sec of pace of previous visit.. dont know why car felt looser not as positive on turn in the 2 chicanes. Need to start a set up book me thinks as keep dialing in for different circuits.

not on vid nearly came a cropper at Church.. proper sideways moment shat my pants tobe honest.

soz about the horrible noise roof off in these vids.

looking forward to my mate in his rx8 race car for his onboard vids to see what my cars doind from behind.

looser not as positive on turn in could easily be due to tyre wear / heat cycling at this point couldn't it?

don't forget theres a million possible variables like tyre pressures, air / track temperature, damper / spring age etc.

add a a few mm's worth of wheelspacer or different offset wheel into the mix and a different car @ speed....

All very true, I was assuming most of that would have been consistent since the last visit, although I dont think the midlite kit was installed then and im sure the extra disc weight might be a factor.
