  1. thanks for the heads up...I ended up burning the paint as you predicted..i do corner vigorously and now have the blister line on the paint!...
  2. That's a shame..im weighing options for a new set of tyres - always run Toyo r888's however toyo are in the process of phasing out the 888 to be replaced with the '888r'. currently the front size I run (225/50R16) is discontinued in 888 but not available yet in 888r and the rears (255/50R16 are vice versa..not a fan of running different tyres front to rear and so thinking I could try out some longer lasting road tyres but I'm fussy when it comes to side wall profile and of course, need to ensure clearance as it is tight with the 255/50
  3. Looks great. can you remember what tyres/sizes you had there?
  4. when you say left...is this the fuel filler side?
  5. looks like a home made "show cage" - good luck with the sale
  6. I'd be interested in the fronts - would you consider splitting the set?
  7. I had a 'full geometry set up' - my words to the mechs was 'I'm not going to do a track day every weekend, I wouldn't mind doing the odd hill climb. Can you do a set up that's some where in the middle?' and they did that. so its more negative camber, more toe in on the rear. cost wise, it will always vary. my car was 'brand new' underneath when I had the set up done so no trouble undoing bolts etc...the base cost is £280+ £75+vat labour per hour. I think from memory, my whole bill was £380.
  8. had my geo set up at Northway, best 'mod' to the car
  9. Great drive out, some good feedback. Will plan another around September time.
  10. On the 30th of June 2019 (next Sunday!) there is a Porsche (any model/variant) meet + drive. (route instructions provided on arrival!) Format is: - Meet at the Blade Bone Inn, Bucklebury (RG7 6PD) at 8am - Leave for a 62 mile drive through the country side towards Wantage/Lambourne - Half way pause then continue to the destination of The Bull Inn, Stanford dingley (RG7 6LS) approx. 10am for tea/coffee + bacon rolls. other cars will join the Porsche's at the end destination for car chat etc. Additionally, following the morning drive, there is a nearby meet (Classics at the club house) which for those who want to commit the full day we could then attend the classic meet at Stanford Springs club house (RG26 5RT) the more the merrier
  11. I'm after a bolt on (no modification or welding etc) strut brace that is suitable for a 1985 Carrera. not fussed about aesthetic condition. Thanks Sam M - 07525188073
  12. Pads changed, what a rewarding job went very well, made it to Prescott Sunday, great drive and fab event.
  13. type911 has them in stock, will order there
