Now why did a Cali look alike get a couple of pedestrians to turn around and use their camera phone a few months back in Calander .. I suspect the yellow one does not get out much .. now it is confirmed .. demoted to pizza wagon :wink:

Cal now has melted tyres after Track day at Knockhill, playing with Greg. I think he was drumming up business melting Toyos :?

My own lovely T1-R's took an awful pounding too Richard! Darned good fun however. I've just gone and bought a spanking new set of Rota 17 inch alloys with some T1-S for road use and I'll keep the 15's for the two remaining track nights. I hope you're attending as the competition made for much more fun!
I've also had my Powerflow stainless system fitted and although it probably won't make a bit of difference to the performance it sure sounds the biz!
And re being spotted at the pizza shop......... you said that you'd be quicker around Knockhill with less weight in the car....so don't be using that as an excuse.. :wink:
I'll be having a white heater surround off you as well so keep me one aside if you don't mind.

17" Rotas??? :shock: Nice!!!

Have you got them yet? If so, what sort of weight is in them? I know the 15s are light.......

Si, yes I've got them on now. I don't know the weight of them but when I compared them them to other wheels they were very noticeably lighter. I had OZ Superleggera's on previously and they were very light also so I didn't want to stick huge lumps of a wheel on as a repacement. I was worried that the 17's would destroy the ride quality but to be honest it's not that bad. I wound the adjustable shocks back a notch anyway to help with any harshness.
If I was bright enough I'd post some pics but they're all stored on my pc and not online.
