    welcome to the red/orange club Yiannis..they do look the part and im sure you get quite a lot people admiring your car even more than before :thumb:

    i must say that my wheel cleaning sessions are trully hated..very difficult to clean the Ultras..

    also a very nice lamp you have..gotta say it rather awesome.:thumb:

    I LOVE THESE Yiannis! Also great use of the damaged wheel. More than a little envious & looking forward to seeing the car at Spa next year

    No Peter, the ones I had on the ultras, I just swapped them over. I've now got a set of R888 to wrap them and use on Snetterton should it stays dry.

    That looks fantastic Yiannis, really good! As Shuv points out, goes so well with the overall look of the car and the way it is driven over those European roads! Loving the new lamp too, ingenious :smile:

    Absolutely stunning Yiannis! They look better than I thought (and I knew they'd look awesome), and I'm sure you thought also!



    And yes, that is art work right there :smiley: Love it!

    Yeap, Snetterton was a bit wet....but awesome at the same time.

    Car on wet setup but unfortunately AD08Rs. Still fun though!

    EDIT. Video re-shared with corrected audio

    Don’t think the Yokos are as bad as some people make out in the wet. I was happy enough with mine saturday

    Not bad at all mate, but not ideal for the conditions for sure. Contis for example is a much better solution for the wet, not to mention the sublime uniroyal rainsports.

    Great video Yiannis! Nice to see the different camera angle, I like to have a play around with different angles, makes the videos much more interesting.
    Not sure what the use to edit the videos. I use race render, but it would be nice if you could turn the sound off on one of the videos, sounds like it's playing the audio from both cameras.
    Snetterton in the wet that's what dream a made off, nice little catch in the first clip keeping your foot in it!

    You are right mate, i think I made a cock up with that video as I forgot to turn it off from the foot action camera!

    I'm using wondershare filmora by the way, very easy to use (when I'm getting it right lol):smile:

    Love the video buddy. Going really well. Again !! Tyres look better than I imagined in the wet from the stories I’ve heard....

    And nice to hear your thoughts of the Contis I’m the wet. I’m not on your level: but agree in thinking my 5’s excel in damp conditions. Road only mind !

    Thanks matey:smile:

    Indeed, when I was running Contis and at the Alps (road reference) and on a wet day the car was flying, it would grip and grip and that was back at the 5100 setup which was much stiffer than the existing (and stiff is not good for wet). People are knocking contis but I always liked them for the road.

    A video of the evening session, a bit drier but nowhere near the levels where you can make the most out of the tyres. A bit of a playing with a new Focus RS on wet tyres, probably trying out his drift mode:smile: Good man!

    Great watch mate, as you say, the ad08r’s don’t seem bad at all!

    Cheers guys, it was an overall fun day, as every TD is I guess.

    Cheers Peter, it is indeed when you are silky smooth, in cases when I wasn't the ESP would kick in before they diff locked. But on those conditions I wouldn't switch it off, better safe than sorry!

    agree 100% ! :smile:


    yiannis, about that gripper ... are you planning to service it regularly? or do you feel it really is a 'fit and forget part'? as claimed by gripper on their website.
