Thanks man, are the picky about the presentation of the car? My quarter seen a tyre wall a few weeks ago and didn't come out on top. Just wondering do I need to get the isopon out before heading down?

No i think once the car is middling it would be grand and they say you have to have all body panels starting the day. My quarter is the same but a big hammer and a heat gun straightened it roughly out.

Good enough plan. I must break out the heat gun! Might have her ready for the February day. Do you go through many sets of tyres in a day on that size of a track?

I'm a big fan of the part worns and I've no bother getting them so I'll take plenty! Must keep a look out for a cheap hardtop again too. Don't want anything fancy, just something to cover my head and has a back window, unlike my current soft top haha

Thats probably a better idea when your one a track that size. Where do you get your tyres and how much would you pay a set roughly, if you dont mind saying.

I was buying them from openoe. Was buying 1s around the €44 they had a bit cheaper but tried 1 set of them and they fell apart in no lenght. They have free delivery and arrive in a few days which is always handy

That is handy, what ones do you go for? I'd prefer to pay the few bob extra if they last a bit longer

Landsails grippy enough even in the wet i usually use them 45-50 psi in the dry and 25-30 in the wet. Have a couple of friends using them in high powered cars and they find them good aswel
