Oulton Park Trackday pics
Hi All,

I've finally managed to get some pics of my trackday last month....lots of fun :)

Car looks great. Lots of fun. :biggrin:

What weight springs do you run at the front and what tyre pressures?

When I took mine on the airfield day, I found the front clam rubbed on hard cornering. Running 225lb at the front but did not increase tyre pressure as I think I should have done.

Hi John,

Front pressures 15psi cold, Rears 17psi cold.

225lb front srpings.

I got a bit of dive under hard braking and cornering but no rubbing.....probably because my rims are only 5.5j width with 185/55 tyres.....everything is 'tucked in' a bit more.

I reckon I could probably do with 275lb fronts really if I did lots of track.

Your car looks great, don't know how this will affect the sale if you are still trying to sell it?

As my car is track orientated I used 350Lb springs on the front and 300Lb springs on the rear. I also run tyre pressures of 16psi HOT so in the first few stints keep dropping the pressures down until 16 HOT is consistently achieved. My tyres are 195/50 x 15 888's all round and this set up works very well on track.
