    Snetterton update:

    Another good trackday. Sadly probably the last one until next spring. Car performed great. Really happy with how it’s running.

    Lovely to meet some more forum members and some old ones. Big Renault turn out as always.

    Couple of pics courtesy of a friend and a borrowed camera!

    Thanks for looking

    Yeah good day Pav. Cool conditions and a dry track. Couldn’t ask for much more:thumb:

    Thanks for the passenger laps, loved the 'just one more lap' once you got a sniff of the Golf R, then we did another chasing a VX220.
    Car needs for nothing in my opinion, works great on the Yoko's, feels like it's on rails and sounds the business!

    Nice new wheels delivered today. Still not ordered tyres. AD08R’s have been brilliant yet I can’t help wondering what something more track focussed like a Direzza or AR1 would be like. Food for thought

    These weigh 8.7kg each btw

    Good work Ben! Direzzas are amazing mate, but pricey, NickD has suggested the DMack tyres too, so worth speaking to him about them.

    Thanks again Matt. Communication, price and delivery was spot on. Would recommend to anyone thinking of buying wheels to give @R27WTF a message.

    It's come a Long way Ben. It'll look great on the wizards, the anthracite suits it so well.

    They’re actually £135+vat each. I’ll get them through our firm to save the vat.
