  1. what i mean is why the lower profile 40 up front? what does this achieve? less understeer?
  2. Why did you run 245/40 front and 245/45 rear?
  3. Hi, Bought my zed and it is going to be a 80% track car, 20% road car. its currently on 245/45/18 tyres (which need changing soon) had a look today and its got 8j front rays and 8.5j rear. standard. would it be best if running a square tyre set up to run front and rear wheels the same size? and if so, would it be best to run 8j all round or 8.5j all round, assume tyre size is kept as 245/45/18. if the contact area is the same, surely it would be better to run the slightly lighter 8js? cheers.
  4. I'm going from 17th may - 22nd, convoy will be me in a 350z, a turbo mk2 mx5, Mini R58 JCW, Scooby and possibly a EVO X. Drive out Thursday, track is open Friday eve, sat/sun/mon all day, drive back Tuesday, Is our 5th time there, so know the track limits and surrounding area reasonably well. Welcome to join if you like!
  5. 8 months on since this post and i've finally agreed to buy my next zed.... Should be picking it up next week. Its 2003 Import, Silverstone, Done 130k, but an engine replacement that has only 80k on it. It looks tatty. and its a bit of a gamble. But is fairly cheap and as a weekend/Track car - not overly fussed. Going Ring in may, so will have a good few months to sort any issues and get tyres / brakes sorted etc.
  6. Mitsubishi Lancer Sportback. basically an Evo X but with a smaller turbo and a big boot. 6k will get you a 2011 reg with under 60k on the clock
  7. none? it looks cheap and tacky IMO.
  8. ill be up for being a passenger? (i need to clear it with work) i've been 5 times before - running about 9m-8m30s (before me zed caught fire last year!) Feel i know the track quite well - could be quite handy to be a co-pilot?
  9. What is the paintwork like underneath the wrap?

    Destroying my zed

    it looks awful imo. it wont make it go faster. it will be a pain in the ass. youll spend more money on wheels to make it sit right. the bodykit will crack and either then look awful or again have to spend money putting it right. im assuming everything in total will be about 10k? (inc sus/wheels/kit/paint/labour etc etc etc) just put it towards a better standard car.

    Direnza spacers.

    I ran 30mm spacers that were from china and non hub centric. The wheel only fell off once - and that was because i didnt tighten it properly. Done mallory park and a trip to the nurburgring and about 15k miles. - Think ive still got them somewhere actually... So buying cheaper ones are fine.
  12. the best one is the Golf R Estate - only 2 out of the 4 exits are connected. Unlike the S3/Golf R
  13. Personally i think it will look gash.
