Part 2. Knocked 3s off.
1:57 v 2:02
I lose 3s by the exit of Shell oil corner only 45s into the lap, by staying in 5th for Island bend and messing the entry into Shell dropping to 2nd.
Still plenty of time in it...
Ad taken from MR2ROC, not my car:
FOR SALE - 2002 Rogue 2ZZ Roadster
I purchased the car in May 2014 after months of looking for the right car. Bought from an owner in Lincoln I took the car back to Scotland and the project stated...
I've used them on the road in a 182 and Octavia VRS, when I couldn't be arsed changing them out after a track day. Zero issues whatsoever. However being enduro spec, they will wear much quicker when used on the road as they need real heat for optimum wear rates.
You'll more than likely need to change your driving style slightly and taken lines versus the M140i, FR v MR. You won't have that weight over the front wheels anymore, so faster in and harder trail braking to shift the weight onto the front axel. Your LFB skills should really help here.
After a bit of online snooping at the 2018 MSVR Lotus Cup UK regs, I've found some of spec of this car:
Exige S2 Toyota 2zz N/A -
184.108.40.206 Toyota engined cars are permitted engine modifications including, but not limited to engine internal components, exhaust system, engine ECU, air filter, and...
They are a lot of fun, parts are cheap and they're easy to work on. There's nothing close for £5k (what I paid) that I'd swap it for.
Ohlins on this Exige. Its a Lotus Cup Uk championship spec car. 100kg lighter than the MR2, wider tyres, bigger brakes with lots of functional aero too.
Comparison of a Exige race car vs my MR2 track car. Both 2zz engined. Not sure if the Exige puts out more power, probably as they have aftermarket ECU's.
8 second difference, which doesn't sound like much over a 2m lap, but visually its an age. He also cocked up the last corner, so more like a...
You're 100% trying mine at Oulton next week, even if you nanny it around for a few laps on your own, you'll get the feel of a lightweight RWD on track. So, so different, noticeably being pushed instead of pulled, seating position, steering accuracy, razor sharp turn in etc. Its not the quickest...
Not used the 052's myself but they seem a great all-rounder. AR1's are fantastic in the dry, and even in damp conditions with no standing water to cool them. You’ll only be disappointed when its a cold, pissing down day as they are sketchy.
Sure they'll be great being all the same tyre and e-marked for road. I would have probably kept them if the same pattern and road legal. What DOT dated are yours?
Just don't get the branding.
MRF ZTTC -...
Well received the MRF ZTR's, and well, what a disappointment.
2 different tread patterns received, the 225's are DOT dated 4919, so 16 months old and are also non e-marked for road use.
Asked for medium compound, but received H1, the hardest.
Wasn't happy at all so requested a exchange for...
Seem to be going well on a leggy standard 182 cup here. 1:28 laps at Donington.
The PH review thread that made my mind up for me.
In typical CS fashion, I've asked advise about one thing and bought something totally different :D
Just purchased a new set of MRF ZTR semi-slicks, 195/50/15 front - 225/45/15 rear for £486 delivered!
Cant find any official reviews about them but they are the control tyre of the Civic cup...
