    so went out yesterday and the car feels good with the back end a bit stiffer I feel the tyres will be getting a proper work out now so need to re-evaluate the pressures when out on track. But to put it in a different way its made the back end feel stiff and this is making the car point faster when turning the wheel now I really cant wait to get it do Donington for some testing..

    From the off I now have a cracked side skirt which I will soon be looking into either new one or get this one painted.. and also need to give the car a good clean see what damage the stones have done.

    But all in all fantastic day and thanks @trackspec197 For your words of wisdom.

    After discovering a knock which wasn't there before I went about stripping the back end down and found.... nothing but decided to get the winter/wet wheels on..

    20181104_150132.jpg
    Any my poor wheels..

    20181104_150412.jpg

    And took a step back and look at the freshly beaten AD08Rs

    20181104_150407.jpg 20181104_150447.jpg 20181104_150450.jpg

    They have took a bearing this year.. rears are on 9 trackdays lol.

    I have given the wheels a clean but haven't checked them since they have dried but hopefully they are ok..

    Fantastic update, pics and video! I can't believe the timing, as soon as you said "what can possible go wrong" the rear just went!

    Any cosmetic damage from the gravel trap apart from the wheels mate?

    I know it was mad.. and I haven't cleaned it yet to see the only thing I have noticed is the side skirt is cracked on the drivers side.. but this is also the side I had painted after the jack slipping off but it is getting pushed up onto the door and has rubbed through so it needs painting anyway

    20181122_130500.jpg 20181122_155229.jpg

    Then set about sorting out my skirt. Got it off and broke the clips so just waiting to get them

    20181125_160104.jpg 20181125_160115.jpg

    So at the moment my car is sitting there with no side skirt on but ah well..
