    Welcome to the forum, very nice looking Clio! Sounds like you've been busy with the mods since April! Akra will be a very tasty upgrade!!

    I like it. Really good tyre for street and the ocassional trackday even in wet weather. It's not the most grippy tyre out there so compared to Peter's #166 on AD08R's I can't really keep up (did have a passenger on that particular day). That day he lapped about 1,5seconds faster then me, then again I had a passenger onboard. That actually means it's a really good tyre for the price.

    I'll be trying the AD08R's next on another set of wheels, and fit winter tyres on the OE's.

    which track events are recommended @ spa? Spa is rather expensive...

    hmm ... familiar clio. :grinning:

    that's not the tyres or weight. that's down to driving skill ... :mask:
    with all the mods you've already done and still planning, it'll be a killer clio. zolder sub-2 minutes is really fast for our cars.
