    MR2 K-swap Project

    195 50 15 fronts yeah. 225 45 15 rear. With the Zestinos you'd be fine with 195 front 205 rear.

    MR2 K-swap Project

    See if you can find a decent set of tyres for those TD's, the difference a set of grippy, stiff sidewalled tyres makes on the MK3 is unbelievable.

    MarkCup's Porsche Cayman

    Track looks small even for a go-kart track, not really suited to cars by the look of it? Cant believe how nervous you were before your first run 😂

    Exige S2 2zz race car vs MR2 2zz track car

    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...

    Nice spec MR2 2ZZ FS

    Ad taken from MR2ROC, not my car: https://www.mr2roc.org/forum/index.php?topic=70842.0;topicseen 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...

    DS1.11 overheating

    Yup, they also require a full cool down to cure properly.

    DS1.11 overheating

    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.

    MarkCup's Porsche Cayman

    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.

    These are a new tyre to the market and get good reviews. Cheap too. https://www.demon-tweeks.com/uk/zestino-gredge-semi-slick-tyres-2012154/

    Spark plug seals, that sit in the rocker cover maybe.

    Exige S2 2zz race car vs MR2 2zz track car

    Must have had engine mods and remap for that time, rapid even for a race spec MK2.

    Exige S2 2zz race car vs MR2 2zz track car

    Think so yeah, as the max power to weight is 297hp p/tonne for non v6 cars.

    Exige S2 2zz race car vs MR2 2zz track car

    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 - 5.8.3.2 Toyota engined cars are permitted engine modifications including, but not limited to engine internal components, exhaust system, engine ECU, air filter, and...

    Exige S2 2zz race car vs MR2 2zz track car

    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.

    Exige S2 2zz race car vs MR2 2zz track car

    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...

    Danith's Trusty Track EP3 Civic Type R

    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...

    Best all-round semi-slicks?

    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.

    Best all-round semi-slicks?

    Bet the missus loves the house smelling like Kwikfit 😄 Tried to order the yokos as the exchange, but no stock. Defo gonna try them next time around. How come you use both tyres?

    Best all-round semi-slicks?

    From the feel of both tyres in H1 compound, they will require heat. Similar feel to a hard compound Kumho V70a. Also a very good tyre once up to temp.

    Best all-round semi-slicks?

    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 -...

    Best all-round semi-slicks?

    Proper let down. First set of new track tyres ever purchased too. Shame, as my MRF slicks are great. I bet these would be too in a medium, and the same tyre.

    Best all-round semi-slicks?

    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...

    A 1:28 lap with near 20hp down is even more impressive then.

    Really, just he mentions its only 180hp in the vid.

    Best all-round semi-slicks?

    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. https://www.pistonheads.com/gassing/topic.asp?h=0&t=1858099&d=0#seperator

    Best all-round semi-slicks?

    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...
