    thanks nick. never ran such high pressures on track before, but lookng at those photos i'll definitely give it a try.

    i wonder if the difference in design between the michelin (more like a road tyre with rounder shoulders) and the yokohama (more like a semi and a much squarer tyre) contributes to the difference in how they wear and feel on the clio.

    Does anyone happen to know when the Nurburgring will realise the 2019 tourist dates?

    Wondering weather to go for the Mintex 1144 brake pads all round wondered if anyone’s doing this setup with the standard discs?

    I used to run 1155 front and 1144 rears in my old car and they were fantastic brakes.
    Even on track they were more than ample. Mint cold bite on them too

    so do you reckon the 1144 all round would be ok for track use?

    Depends how hard you're pushing. How many trackdays you planning on doing?

    Hmmmm dunno I’m using them for a week but I won’t be on the Nurburgring all week if that makes sense. Tough one

    The Ring is not exactly hard on brakes and tyres.
