Getting ready for Brands next week
Went to Team Hard's workshops and collected a few sets of this years spec BTCC tyres the owner Tony Gilham donated to me, including a set of the soft option tyres with the white Dunlop markings. As these are the faster tyre those who follow BTCC will know they can only run these for one race out of the three races per event.
The car is of a similar weight to a BTCC car and the RX-8 is kind on its tyres so hopefully they will live OK.
Stripped the 4.4 Diff out today and tomorrow I will change the Kazz diff into the 4.3 diff which should give it more speed on the straights.
Turns out the racing is across Saturday and Sunday but I have still yet to see the actual program for the proper schedule.
Going to have to relearn the grip levels in qualifying but with more BHP and more grip available I am really looking forward to seeing what lap times the car will produce. Got to be better than the 54.487 on Toyo's from the beginning of the year surely
