    Sadly we can't man it up that much cause we might get banned for posting up that sort of images.

    No more info on the battle bus unfortunately, it's quite an old build.

    Guess what I just bought?

    Jardo are they the same tyres Andy Ponting has on his Volvo? Will you be using them as a track tyre or an everyday tyre?

    Yes mate.

    They are the stickiest, most awesomest road legal slicks in the world. 90% of the performance of an R888 but a third of the price, brilliant wear rate, good in the wet and totally road legal.

    They are E marked as road legal tires, but Maxport don't list them as road legal on their website.

    Yes Westy, same tires. I LOVE the way they zing along the road haha! As a daily tire, not that the car needs any more police attention seeking ability :laugh:

    Yeah, I'll run em' daily! When I pick the car up I am picking up Prawns LCR wheels with P-Zero Nero's and I'm not looking forwards to driving them for two weeks and then going to my cheap budgets on the spare wheels. So I'm just going to bang a set of wheels on a credit card.

    I've not driven them personally in the wet yet, but I'll ask Andy if I can have a go in his Volvo at the weekend when I go home to see what it's like in the wet. Andy drives them daily, and granted he is a hardcore mofo but he hasn't died yet.

    And yes, they make such a great noise! As well as sandblasting your arches haha!

    I guess it makes sense with all that contact rubber.

    I would not want to trust something that thats slick in the wet. No thank you.

    They sound like this, but a much higher pitch -



    I hope they are ok, I've just had an email and the 18's are out of stock for two weeks so I've got time to cancel if they are too scary. I'm not sure if I should chicken out of these and go for FS452's on the road and keep these for summer/track on a set of cheap alloys. :readit:

    Jardo, looking at the tread pattern I wouldn't want to run those as the winter is coming. The Federals that Prawn has seem to be ok in the wet as he did a lap of the Ring in the wet and the tread pattern can disperse water better, also they're not as noisy.

    I bought my Yokos for track days only and wouldn't want to use them every day.
