Ill be at Llandow but not in the mr2 mate. Car needs the rear pads changing for some that will cope with track abuse and also l dont have the money at the moment. Will be on track at mallory on the 2nd October but will be at meets and stuff before then. Shame Llandow is so far away from me or ld just bring the car anyway.

However, I am considering changing her for a forged Toyota MR2 2000 Turbo with twin intakes, intercooler mods, etc. If I do, she will be track-dayed and we'll see who does best then in the Nel Clan Twisted Evil




Like this yummmmmie Twisted Evil

I mentioned this vid to woz earlier and was going to PM it to him but l might as well post it here showing why l need to change my rear pads to match the fronts. Its not just for fade reasons.

Basically the rears do quite alot of braking due the mid-engined layout of the mr2 but right now my front pads bite so much better my brake balance is a bit messed up lol. With no ABS it feels like l can lock the front up before the rears have any real effect on slowing the car down.

Oh and if your wondering why ive not done the rear pads yet its because they cost 160 and ive had other stuff to do. I was lucky with the front set and got them used for 25 Very Happy

Braking from 60mph l was just going to slow down as normal but then decided to try and stop for the camera for a nice shot. And failed lol.
