So I had a good day at Llandow on the weekend. No issues but need 4 new semi-slicks - will probably get 4x195 50 15 Nanking NS2-R's...they seem to wear better than the Federal RSR's. Winter work will be fitting the Fiat Coupe anti-roll bar I have to the rear and I plan to buy and fit wider Fiat Tempra lower wishbones to improve the front camber, so I get less wear on the tyre edges.

Here was the Nanking that let go on Saturday - it had done 4 or 5 track days, so not too bad:





I am still working on editing some video footage - had some external video sent from someone I met on the day, and will be adding mutliple camera angles again.

In the meantime here are some pics of the Alfa and other cars from the day:

So I finally found time to do the video - here it is:

Also bought the Fiat lower wishbones as they were a bargain at 8 for each side as last in stock - EuroCarParts wanted 67 for each side!! Quality looks good so assume they made a loss and just wanted them off their shelves - cant imagine many people buying 20 year old Fiat parts anymore!

Also got 2 more 3 ton axle stands for another bargain 16, as I'll need 4 for working on front and rear at the same time.



Also went home last weekend, so good excuse to have a trip in my Dad's 1961 Triumph TR3A and he gave me his spare CTEK battery charger:

Great video. Wish i'd known there was a local trackday with a 145 in - I would've popped over for a look (mine wouldn't go anywhere near the track - it's a 1.6 and I would be Driving Miss Daisy)
