    Wheel bearings falling apart faster than governments

    So I’ve been running 20mm spacers on all four corners of my 1.2 mk2 for years. About six months ago my NSR bearing starts grinding gently and then very quickly not gently. I changed the bearing on the NSR buty press doesn’t have the force to get the OSR bearing out. Luckily when I put it all...

    Four 15" Renault Storm 6J ET43 Wheels

    I'm having a clear out and I'm not using these wheels any more on my Autosolo 172. I have no idea how to price the wheels, the previous owner paid £200 for the set second hand. They're bare wheels, ideally could do with a refurb but are useable as they are. No centre caps, but they may be in the...

    Wheel/Tyre Suspension Clearance

    Just fitted my camber bolts and had them dialed in to -1.5 deg. I'm now thinking the inside edge of the tyre might be too close to the suspension spring, especially on track under hard cornering. I can just get my fingers in the gap between the two, so say roughly 10mm +/-. Is that enough...
