Power is nothing without control. Weight is enemy of performance, handling and braking.

Have you ever had the car weighed clive?

So what is next on the agenda for the off season prep?

Next up will be fitting the  FD rear calipers,
New set of 9.5 Enkei wheels should be here next week which means I'm going to run with 265's all round which will help front end grip.
If I have the penny's available I will also be changing to the new Toyo 888R

Boot lit and rear wing changes will have to wait till I have time.

Going to need a  track day run before the first race at Brands at the end of March to get the bias brake system  set up and do a systems check .
All the best Clive
