    Yes Peter, but they were squealing a lot today, I think I've found their limit! Squealing both on bends and under braking. Talking of braking I still have no problem with DS2500 pads. No fade & ample stopping power for me coupled with good on road performance. I have no need for anything more track orientated at this stage. Maybe when I upgrade my tyres that will change. I'm considering going down the route @Beany has gone with PS4 in wet weather & general road use & AD08r for dry weather track days. I'll need more rims though.

    Great excuse to buy another set of wheels John:grinning:
    I think the AD08R’s will outperform the PS4 in the dry and vice versa in the wet

    Straight through the MOT today, no issues. Maintenance is the key. Had rear brake pads changed (after test passed) & exhaust adjustment. So nice not to have resonance from exhaust system on diffuser! Was driving me nuts. Quiet run up to Inverness from Edinburgh. Rentec Autocare in Edinburgh saved my sanity!
