    It will be a daily and will be taken on track with regards to it being harsh i had my previous one for 4 years and the car was in track spec for at least 2 years. and before that it was still coiloverd and bucket seated i can live with it. also i am going to take a long and hard think about what i need to be doing my exhaust was my biggest problem on my old car with it being stupid 101db before i got my pms one on there. so well see updates coming though

    let me know how you get on with the Federals, im running a set currently on my 197 and find the compound far too soft (140,) getting a poor breakaway under load.

    going to go for DZ03 next.
