    Wow! That’s all I can say. Jade Development is a Wizard!

    Track Day at Silverstone. Now I may be out of my depth but the car certainly wasn’t.

    Hey Kev,
    I’m booked for 21st June at Combe but I’m stuffed as have another commitment. I’m already booked for their October track day.
    I’ll see if I can rebook it the 9th August,
    Btw - Car is so good with the Gripper diff and Bilsteins etc - it would be good for you to compare.
    Cheers!

    Also check out the other machinery at Silverstone:

    The supercars arrived in transporters but the Fezza flew past us on the A43! Nutter fast!

    TBH - They had too many cars on the day. Over 90 and lots of pseudo testing going on. A bit nuts as you got passed by GT cars and a McLaren Senna that was plane ballistic. I reckon about 70-80 mph differences in places and Ginetta’s who were treating it as a test day.
    All in all a bit dangerous as the speed differences was way too high. But still a great experience for a newbie like me!

    Car looks amazing! I had Eibach Pro S coilovers fitted by Sean around the same time you had the Bilsteins done, didn't know the Bilsteins were still an option otherwise I might've considered them!

    How did you find the cup 2's on track? I was a bit disappointed at first but once they got scrubbed in a bit they were so much better! I find them noticeably better on the road now too which is a bonus.

    Thanks
    I had the tyre pressures a bit high initially. After getting them up to temp removed some air. But took out too much. Car was a bit “hoppy” on the faster curves. Added some air back and improved- a lot.
    Problems? Lots of marbles from the faster machinery was picked up on the Cup2s. This caused some noise and a little vibration at high speed. Also upset cornering balance a little.
    I checked them over when back home. The car is trailered so only driven very occasionally.
    Noticed lots of pickup on the tyres. So suggest scrubbing them after a session.
    The Bilsteins are epic. But maybe some adjustments would help. On track perfect. I drove about 60miles on them and a little rough on some of the roads around me.
    Overall so happy with it. I’m booked into Castle Combe in mid-August for some 1-2-1 training. I’ll report back on how it goes.
