You doing both days Madmac? Missed you last time and maybe try to get up on Sunday:smthumbup!
This is a British Championship event so it's a 2-day meeting. Practice Saturday and timed runs with the top-12 runoff on Sunday. Forecast looks good :smthumbupYou doing both days Madmac? Missed you last time and maybe try to get up on Sunday:smthumbup!
Are you absolutely sure about that? You could easily get hold of something like a used set of Michelin wets for under £200. At least it might be worth having a go with something like thatThe Avon slicks in the wet will still give more grip than any treaded tyre i could buy - except cut Avons
I've looked at this before and all the Michelin compounds are harder than the Avons. Problem with hillclimbs is tyres don't get up to temperature but on a circuit they will heat up after a few laps so although the Michelins will be good in the wet, they need to be up to temp and that won't happen on a sub 1-mile run. The Avons are soft enough to build heat quickly which is why i use the same Avon compound as the dry but cut my own pattern in them. For the few times i'd need tread it doesn't seem worth cutting a set of £1500 tyres. I've run with no tread in the wet many times and have never felt the car aquaplane and the grip from the slicks is still very good. If there's doubt i'll forfeit a run as I usually have nothing to prove by going out in the 'very' wet anyway.Are you absolutely sure about that?

I have 10" x 18 rims and use 250/640/18 avons. If you can find anything soft and cheap I'll certainly try a setDonald; what size tyres do/can you run?
I'm thinking of ex rallycross cut Avon (Cooper) slicks
Yea she's handling great now. I was getting quicker over the weekend and getting confident in the handling so it's a shame the misfire slowed me down.Looking good Donald! Handling very well too. Shame about the misfire.

So are you doing Harewood?Back to just being 'Madmac' again
Products will still be made and developed but not advertised or sold via MLR any more.
Much work has been done on Tiddles since Doune. I still have to get her out for some testing before the Alford Sprint this Sunday so i'll do an update nearer the weekend
