  1. Who is your shop? My best advice is speak directly with the tech and tell them what you want from the car /give him goals to shoot for and let them do their vodoo. There's a lot of dependencies that are hard to micromanage if you are not sure of how all numbers interact -- trust your tech! Make sure they also corner balance the car Every car is different but zero toe in front and total 1/16 toe in rear works for mine, with rake bias to the front to bring a bit more grip there car moves around real nice in the bends with no understeer whatsoever -- I also have a stiffer sway rear so that might help however @Dougle_turbo
  2. Well this was a great day seeing the SR1s in action I'm liking these Radicals... mmmh ? video_2018-11-10_18-21-38.mp4
  3. I wonder if there's spaces at brands or Bedford when you could organise a course with cones - if that's what you mean? I'm going up to Donington and they are using a tarmac space there as far as I understand
  4. Can confirm as my car is black ah! I signed up for the Donington winterseries if anyone wants to join! Via Loughborough car club - 15 December
  5. Day was really good - greasy in the morning but then completely dry by midday / after break. Crazy traffic due to Radical cup this weekend - about 100 cars total I heard. 20 max on track limit but hardly believed that Had an instructor with me for the day managed to knock 4 seconds off my best time - really happy with the car performance
  6. Right, yeah -- just my 2 cents here fro my research of the past weeks. Alloys shipped to here from the US might end up costing you over $500 in tax and shipping at a minimum, unless you go with some direct importer like Nungen and can strike some deal with (I am speaking to them to understand actual cost of the operation). Now if you are hovering to 1800-2000 gbp that's getting closer to the real FUCHSFELGE budget (euro 2330+shipping from Twinspark in the Netherlands...or you could drive there and get them installed ) https://www.twinsparkracing.com/shop/fuchs-18-inch-8-10-rsr-anodised/ FUCHSFELGE are the real deal and light, as light as Alleggerita's if I recall correctly. The only real reason I am not fitting those is that I don't want to have to deal with spacers and they do not come in the right fitting unfortunately. Personally the only way I can man math myself into splashing over 1500 on a set of wheels (and they go up real quick if you look at stuff like CCW) is to gain something by adding less weight to the package. Hence Allegerita / search for sub 20lbs range alloy. I also looked at Apex which does some stunning looking wheels bespoke for Cayman, but their 23 -24 lbs range is simply too close to the standard Cayman 18" for me to justify the expense I like Allegerita but in my search the advan popped up and are quite close in weight and look a bit more exotic...similar to the legendary TE37 (17 abnd 18lbs) from VOLK RAYS...but I can't justify over £4,000 for a set...well maybe give me a couple years ahah ?
  7. @Mavrik @Craiglm68 I take you are not going to be at Brands tomorrow?
  8. Heard back from. They do not do the proper fitment for me and they are a tad heavy / as heavy as the standard ones so for me can't justify the expense I'm verging towards Yokohama Advan TC3 (19lbs) import from Nungen directly from Japan (about 1500/set + tax)
  9. @Windymiller crypto too?
  10. @Beanoir thanks for sharing. Pls validate my signup Question: you dabble in crypto?
