Race Wheels and Tyres

Work on the car continues.  Some of the car under tray was flapping loose so needed to be repaired.  The heat shielding on the underside of the rear boot floor (above the exhaust) also rattles - but this will wait until the exhaust box is changed as access is difficult.

After the last track day we needed to replace the brake fluid with Castrol SRF and adjust the rear tow slightly.  Our method of running parallel fishing wire lines down each side of the car is basic and cheap - but effective. 
We then trial fitted our Team Dynamics Race Wheels.  These need at least a 3mm spacer at the rear to avoid the rim hitting the suspension tower. They have the medium compound Toyo 888 tyres fitted and should make a massive difference in handling on track.
