2118’s are the long term plan but been trying to find some cheap track wheels but iv been spending left right and centre at the moment. Will get some before next trackday hopefully. Really want to try a set of ar-1’s
another of my favourites but haven't seen any come up for sale in right size/fitment in ages.OZ Ultraleggera are the wheels you want for saving weight. They are 3,3 kg's lighter than my OZ F1's.
best of luck its a dry day for you bud, look forward to seeing the update pics 😌Nah haha, i've not even used them myself yet.
9th Feb at Oulton will be their first outing.
Thanks bud, much appreciatedCar is coming together nicely. What tyres where you on at Donington?
Thing is you will have learnt the cars behaviour on the limit with those ditch finders in the wet, best thing you could have done as now once you get decent tyres you will be able to really push on knowing the limits and more importantly how to control it on the limit.:up:Thanks bud, much appreciated
unfortunately....Nankang NS2's (not NS2R's)
they are OK as a road tyre in the dry, but defiantly well out their comfort zone on a wet track.
In a way im glad I used them as with the limited grip the car felt on edge all the time, which will hopefully give me a better sense of progression when I change the tyres/new wheels.
That's kind of what I was hoping for, I did start looking at getting new wheels before the TD but I came to the decision that I needed a base reference point for me to progress (myself and the car) from.Thing is you will have learnt the cars behaviour on the limit with those ditch finders in the wet, best thing you could have done as now once you get decent tyres you will be able to really push on knowing the limits and more importantly how to control it on the limit.:up:
cant wait to get the coilovers on either, unfortunately the supplier I used sent me the wrong ones (BR's instead of DR's) and its proving a huge ball ache to get it sorted. ordered my polybushes at the same time and still waiting for those even though they are "in stock"
tyres make such a huge difference, I remember the first time I went from R888's to full slicks about 8 years ago..............couldn't believe the difference and R888's are a damn decent track tyres
your approaching it all correctly though, build the car up gradually (ish, I know it gets exciting! I love buying s**t) test after major upgrades with a trackday. get tuition and get some seat time. and a decent trackday time shalt be had!
What spring rates did you go for on your BC's? I had to change mine last year as my fronts were to soft, was on 5kg/8kg now on 7Kg/8Kg's as this is the hardest I can have without having to have the shocks re-valved(?). Wish I had looked into it more before buying them in the first place but nevermind, it is fairly stiff now though so not sure if this is your second car, but personally I wouldnt wanna drive it everyday as it is, its bad enough driving it two hours there and back from circuit. But then again, having a properly stripped & setup track car as a daily isn't the best idea anyway (even though I did it years ago, the novelty soon wears off and I looked a tit).
How are you getting it to the nurburgring? Drive it like a hero or trailer it?
Thanks dude much appreciated.
Will be going 15” hopefully.
I brought a Tessa Motorsport inlet months ago, iv decided to sell that as itll fund wheels. Dont really need any more “power” and would rarther it handle better first anyway aha.
Will have to do a video to update, got a galaxy s9 now so should be better quality
