  3. Anyone considering or used titanium backing plates between caliper Pistons and pads? is it a cheap effective mod or snake oil ? i have gp2 calipers to fit soon and I hear they sometimes eat the seals after heavy track work ?
  4. As it says let me know if you have one, stock front for me is only 22.5 mm, roadster has loose rear in marginal conditions with 20mm rear bar,

    Track Day tyres

    Ad08r round Silverstone in damp to wet conditions and 5 degrees c 215/45/17 Only a half hour session on national circuit, saw a few spinners, some got away with it others not so much Not much fun, compared to full wet session on runflats I'm not going to rebook more than a week in advance this late in the year again, typical that last weekend was over 20 degrees

    How long does a tank of fuel last on track?

    Sounds about right, try 7mpg with est lap time and length and see if it matches up

    Cheque book Racing R53 build

    How about more power... ? 240 bhp per Ton needs something extra under the hood

    R56 Trackday Build

    So which is the best pairing from these 3 options ? Adjustable Caster bush Thicker front arb Adjustable topmounts 98% road car say 3 track days per year, so B road control and compliance before best track performance Roadster comes with really skinny front bar, has superpro rear already fitted B16 fitted, but no camber 215/45/17 ado8r on et 37 7" wheels

    R56 Trackday Build

    I've got superpro drop links and was seriously considering the camber bushes, should I give this a miss ? And Spend that cash on real camber ? Dropping subframe for a quaife at some stage
