    First steps- Youve done quite a few track days.... then what?

    the production class in tri is no mods what ever really, just camber bolts / shims and some springs. the production plus class is no engine mods but most of everything else is free

    First steps- Youve done quite a few track days.... then what?

    to be fair in our series it is rare for any bad contact (but does happen). in my 3 years all I have had to replace through accident damage is a rear beam, track rod and a door.

    First steps- Youve done quite a few track days.... then what?

    cam question

    it might do but I don't want to mess with how it is now. can it not just be off all the time. as long as it wont do any damage that's all I'm bothered about. just being lasy as I don't want to swap it over from the other engine

    PMS strut / top mounts for tric trophy production class?

    as they are a standard mounting point and non adjustable I would say they should be ok. dave bell is our compliance scruitineer so he would have the final say , best way is to ask on the facebook page

    RC8 Pads/ abs Delete On Track Car Locking Up

    I run rc8 on my race car and don't have a problem. have you bled the calipers to eliminate any air in the system. also it could just be cold tyres.

    Clios at Oulton today (28th Jan)

    Yep fantastic pads even from cold but just get better when they get hot. A lot of the tricolore boys use them.

    First time towing my car to the track...

    as said take your time. remember that the back of the trailer kicks out a lot more than you think. don't turn in too tight and when reversing if you are unsure always get out for a look. better to get out 10 times and get it right than to be embarrassed and hit something. good luck

    UCH and ECU par numbers how important

    not 100% sure but as far as I understand the different ones correspond to what extras you have fitted, so it might not have cruise,abs and such like.
