Thanks bud.

So if it was slightly narrower at 6" but 36" long, possibly could get the same noise reduction?

<<<<<—————- complete novice bud.

Whilst I show elements of “spirited driving”  on the road.

That day at Combe was my first time out on any circuit in a car. I need to “learn to drive” all over again

I’m hoping you’re brave enough to ride shotgun one day and gimme some pointers.

My only concern it you’ll rattle about in Emma’s chair, may need some sofa cushions either side of your hips lol

Then ill come out. Brads real quick now...i dont like going out with him now right on the limit.

Yep give you some pointers....

Best bet is an airfield circuit to start with loads of run off no barriers...

Abingdon springs to mind.

Lol point taken

Don't forget I'm on rx8 discs n calipers, and the lotus is maybe 60% of the weight of an rx8

If needs be ill get some racing beat 4 pots for the front off Clive, but I think the standard set up will do for now given the weight reduction.
