Car went brilliantly... Turned, stopped, stayed cool, went hard... Very happy. Shredded my BF Goodrich street tyres though.
What tyres do you use for track?
Thinking of getting a cheap set of rims and throw slicks on em.
What you reckon?
Best tyres so far - Nitto NT01 - awesome grip, quick hookup again after traction losses (although not as many as you'd think even with a grumpy BBC) - only negative was short tyre life, hates water
Current tyres - Kumho KU36 - great compromise, still soft enough for the track and good confidence when wet , do lose traction that lil bit sooner, need to feather power on - although I reckon they'd be miles ahead of the BF's
quite cheap via international tyre trader ( hard to find cheap 315's)
Also considering a set of full track slicks one day, just to see how far she can go - that's after some bigger brakes, 6 Spd, injection etc etc
