  1. Essex - or do I That was my first MR2. My second one (this one) was written off a while back I'll answer more questions soon when I can. B4G - I ended up running BCRacing inverted coilovers. They offered the best body control I'd found on an SW20, but highlighted the chassis could have probably done with a cage for stiffness. They weren't soft! I actually still have them, I keep meaning to sell them if you want them. Only done a few hundred miles and have been back to BC for a checkup!
  2. Probably quicker than mine
  3. I still keep an eye on things Ironically my finger has just gone down, it got infected from losing skin when working in an engine bay!

    Tyre decisions

    I wasn't a huge fan of the FK452 on my 350z. Great at first but as they wear the grip starts to go. I'm not the only person that's noticed it either. The Sport Contact 3 is still one of the best tyres on the market if this years group tests are anything to go by, placing 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th in 4 tests: http://www.tyrereviews.co.uk/Tyre/Continen...t-Contact-3.htm
  5. On the plus side it's a lotus and not a KA... I hope it's there Saturday, I want a poke about!
  6. Is it a Ford KA? Their brakes aren't servo assisted so feel a little crap!
  7. Can you lock the wheel / get ABS to kick in? If not, then it's not your tyres it's your brakes. If the tyre is locking too early, or the ABS is cutting in then the tyres are still bedding in. That said, 100 miles should be enough to scrub a new tyre in...
  8. Could you ask them to review their existing bullet proof tyres...
  9. Even if you measured in seconds it would only last for seconds with the way the roads are at the moment!

  11. Lucky git I expect a full review in a few weeks!
  12. I think that's a safe bet I look forward to your thoughts, I'd imagine they'll be positive!
  13. Well you've done as much groundwork as you can by asking the owners club. From my understanding of the 3 the goodyears will probably be the most comfortable, the Michelins wear the best and the Vredestein give the most direct feel.
