    Avon Tyres

    As a suggestion, try Yokohama/Advan. I have had a set on my car and even with a few track days, the grip is amazing, and the wear rate is acceptable. Very responsive and predictable handling. N

    Wanna Be An Owner Of Mini

    I just got into the MINI ownership a few months ago. The biggest mistake I made was to buy an MPI version rather than a SPI or a carb. I say this because the ECU on the MPI is rather hard to tap into and the integrated immobilizer is a pain. That said, I love it. Here are the things to look for on a test drive. 1) On the newer ones, 2nd gear seems to start wearing out early. way more evident on a cold start. 2) Rust 3) Steering bushings. 4) Check the suspension to see if its the original rubber version, or converted. 5) Have fun!!! Its a blast to own. For a fun factor, i will give it a 9/10!

    Kit Cars

    I would love to get a Miata and then turn it into a Seven. I have a friend doing it in the US and even though there are some challenging areas, it mostly seems like fun. But Long time ago I know there were a couple of Westfields assembled in SL. Just wondering if one could bring in a new kit now with the current rules.

    Kit Cars

    Whats the deal with getting a kit car? Ideally I would want to register it. And When i say kit car, I am thinking a Caterham or a Westfield kit. Would prefer to do the assembly myself. Can they be registered?

    Which Sports Car?

    So i havent driven either a GTR or a 911 Turbo. But I am torn with the choice. For flat out fast laps I would take the GTR any day, but for a great sunday drive in the mountains, man that Flat 6 in the porsche sounds good. also for that price range you cant get a decent turbo. Now the car i would pick over both of those is a used GT3 .

    Known Sti's In Sl

    Well Nishan's ex car is a dark Red, really nice color... I should know, have driven it a few times..must say the most boring STi to date. But i hear there is another in town.

    Porsche Or Ferrari And Why?

    I Own a Carerra S. Absolutely Love it. After driving a 350Z, all sorts of Evo's and STI's..I still love it..and its my daily driver. Apart from a super loud exhaust, its as practical as my Z used to be. Maybe even more so as it can take more stuff. On the track its amazing, demands a little bit more restraint when driving as the nose is light, but powering out of corners never felt so great. That said, I havent driven a Ferrari, but I want one!!!!!!!! The Porsche is a great sports car...the Ferrari to me is an ICON... It does what its supposed to do...gives you goose bumps, and makes me feel like a kid. The Ferrari makes me desire a truly impractical object...even seeing a slower 308 on the road makes me want one... to me thats a true exotic!!!! If it can make you do something that doesn't all add up to common sense.... I voted Ferrari... but if i was doing more track days, please get me a GT3RS!!!!!

    April!

    Hey as much as I love the Z, I would hate to test it against a 4WD on Mahagastota. On both the hairpins the LSD will have to work overtime and still spin the outside wheel. Hope a record is broken this time.
