    Yeah there is also a guy just selling the whole bracket all sorted and ready to go however I'm still not sure if I like it compared to the original one as it was a nice size and feel and not to close.. I'm in Cheltenham for the week so having to drive it 60 miles a day so getting some real use I haven't had this one on track but if you do have a nice wheel it does make it better for track however I liked my stock wheel.. just wanted a nice re trim like said in previous post.

    Not much big news but pants never the less.. when I was fitting my horn the other day I had a little problem.. there is a black wire which I thought was an earth.. when I went to plug it in to the horn to save me using another one it fixed a little then I pulled it out immediately. Then there was a tiny amount of smoke I didn't think much of it because everything worked.. now when I turn the wheel it was making the sound of a crisp packet as said I wasn't to worried however noticed the airbag light was coming one more than it has been. Well today on the way home I realised it was when I was turning right.. i made this realisation by at the traffic lights turning right. And now....

    The airbag light is staying on.. and I need a new squib..

    It wasn't on before I did the horn so I know it's not that and I had the resistance right and tonight I went around all the resistors to make sure they where in and as they should be.. I'm just gutted I've done what I have..

    Sorry for the long one.

    Rainsport 3's are great on track, but only use them when there is standing water (i.e. not just damp). I was dancing round most things at Cadwell in the rain.
