  1. I have used both the Eagle F1 SS and MPS4S extensively and IMHO I would say that the SS offer more feel and ultimate grip. The margin isn't much but having gone through 2 sets of SS (mainly track use but some great road trips in there too) and then switching to the MPS4S I immediately felt a difference. My setup is a little on the extreme side these days (The car was stock back in Sept 2018) and it's now running elephant control arms all round and -3. So my opinion of the 4S is based on this setup. The SS were on the car as it slowly morphed into the current setup. I'll be swapping back to the SS once the 4S are shot. Hope that helps.
  2. There are some great companies out there offering all sorts of track insurance. However if you are getting into insuring for track days just be a little bit carful with the small print. The policies that offer road cover and X track days are great value but unless something has changed on the last 12 months none of them will cover you at the ring as part of the X days. Another major point is that if you bin it on a joint policy, it will affect your road going insurance. what I like about Morris is that Spa and the Ring are covered, and it’s a stand alone policy. Sure it costs a little more, but it works for me. I should also add that as far as I’m aware no one will cover to for Armco damage at the ring. So that could get expensive quickly with a big off! All that said, the Ring is a pretty safe place to drive around, especially on a TD. Treat it as you would a B road and it’s safer than driving on the road. Traffic is all heading in the same direction, and there aren’t any cyclists, sheep etc to hit. It’s a little different if you’re starting to push, but even then it’s a place the rewards familiarity with the track, and building speed up over time. This was my third visit, so I have done around 40 laps now (inc around 9 TF laps - different leaguer of crazy when busy!) If you want a real riot, hire some of the Ring Swifts. A few of us did it last month, and it was hilarious fun. Highly recommended. Needless to say, I love the place and am absolutely hooked.
  3. 😅 Involuntary noises! You wouldn't believe how slippery the wet sections were, like ice!
  4. Thanks! It's an awesome place. Like a mini road trip and track day rolled into one. I insure the car with Morris for track days, 10 per year costs around £650 and they cover international circuits. (inc trackdays organised at the ring). You can't get (I don't think) insurance for TF laps.
  5. So I have just got back from a great Ring trip. The weather was very, very wet in the morning and dried out as the day went on. This lap was about 70% dry with the rest still very slippery! (see code brown at 6:45). Never the less I almost beat my best dry time (8:41) so pretty happy with that! Absolutely love the place!
  6. I've ended up sticking with the Sebros up front, and have just fitted a new set. They are very reasonably priced on Design 911.
  7. Sebro slotted up front (they take an epic amount of abuse before they need changing - 25 plus track days), standard discs rear. Ds 1.1 or Ds 2500 work well on track, I'd recommend 2500 for road work as the 1.1 are LOUD. RBF 600 or 660 for the fluid. Braided hoses and GT3 cooling ducts. I also removed the arch liner and opened up some of the 'closed' vents with a dremel. I have used standard discs and textar pads on track, and, assuming the fluid is fresh, it's not a bad setup. Just changed the discs, think I got my monies worth. IMG_5392.HEIC
  8. Hi Doug


    Apologies for the interruption, James (jcm987) has suggested you may be able to help me but I can’t seem to PM you 😕 .


    I’m just about to start a race car build based on a 2.0 718 and I’m investigating cooling options. I understand that you have added a centre rad to your car and was wondering how it all went together and if you were able to quantify the improvement?


    Thanks in advance!

      Hi Steve,


      No problem.


      I would say the third rad is a no brainer, if on the 718 the system is similar to the 987 it's a very simple modification, and goes together very easily. The most difficult bit is bleeding the cooling system afterwards and cutting the bumper for the vent. Unfortunately I haven't been on track on any really hot days since fitting so it's hard to quantify, but any form of extra cooling will be beneficial for a car that will always be driven hard.


      Look forward to seeing your car - I think the 718 would be a great base for a race car especially with the tuning options on the 2.0 turbo!

  9. Thanks Thanks Nick, I have sent you a PM on this. 👍
  10. Hi @Beanoir, Whats happens when your subscription auto renews? Do you get another membership pack?
  11. Very nice car (although wrong gearbox for me) would love a set of ceramics.
  12. I have had 2 sets of Goodyear F1 SS on my Cayman S and they are incredible tyres. In both dry and wet conditions the grip is very good, and on the track they perform extremely well. Probably the most impressive thing about them is how long they last. My current set are being replaced (by MPS4S for comparison) this month and they have done 10,000 hard road miles + Donnington x 2, Bedford x 2, Spa, Nurburgring, Anglesey, Brands hatch, Blyton x 2, and a couple of others. By comparison the set of brand new P Zeros I had were terrible, and the car had a lot of understeer with them. Given the price I would change all 4 to the Goodyears and keep the fronts for Justin.
