  3. greenlight mirror my no claims from my daily even though the other policy isn't with them
  4. These are 100% going to be my next set of tyres. Never heard anyone say a bad word about them
  5. No worries mate, obviously if you're going to really abuse them there are more expensive options. Horses for courses and all that
  6. I changed to Hawk HPS pads last year and so far they've out performed the stock pads in every way. Used for fast road and track as well as the occasional commute to work. Great bite from cold and can take some abuse as well. That's not to say they are the best option but i have been pleased with them
  7. thanks for that i appreciate it. £275 is definitely a bargain!! I'll definitely be keeping my eye out for a similar deal. 100% agree with you there as long as they'e tough enough to take the abuse and easy to adjust they should be spot on. the hardrace stuff always looks very well made from what I've seen
  8. where did you buy the front upper control arms from mate? and is there are reason you went with them over any other brand? I've been looking to get some at some point but there are a lot of different ones available

    Tyre Query

    Couldn't agree more. I've done 3 track day on Falken FK510s now and cannot fault them at all. Plenty of grip, progressive when you are on the limit, can take the heat involved very well, good straight line braking especially with a bit of heat in them and VERY VERY good in the wet. great value for money. Dont get me wrong their are better out there but its very subjective (car, usage and driver dependent). I think people can judge based on some of the other Falken tyres about which I've also used and are a bit poo when pushing on with them but are perfectly safe. I've also run Michelins previously and although they are great in all conditions, they outer shoulders are just too soft for me and they wear out in no time which makes the price tag hard to swallow. I'm going to go for AD08R's next for this very reason, though as I've now got a POS daily for winter/bad conditions. This is of course just my 2p worth, but having experience with both the falkens and michelins (amongst many others) on road and track i thought I'd let you know what i think
  10. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wkj2iPC6tg4 check it out great little gadget yeah i heard that as well, they come up pretty often second hand on fb groups though
  11. I know its surprising what a big difference it makes!
  12. no you will need a buy a proper harness bar but they aren't cheap. A CG lock isn't as good a full harnesses but its the next best thing for keeping you pinned in your seat on track
  13. Keep an eye on you oil temp if you haven't got an oil cooler, if you're going to do a few track days i'd definitely recommend getting one. I'd make sure you brake fluid is up-to the task as well, something like RBF600 is fine. Apart from that just the usual tyres brake pads and fluid checks and possibly get you geometry check somewhere if its not been checked in a while. If you're into you detailing its worth sealing up your wheels and paint as molten brake dust can be a pain to shift sometimes. I'm at Donnington in March with Opentrack... can't wait!
