    Has anybody played around with the pressure? any findings?

    What pressure are peeps running?

    Iv'e just started running 39 ( front ) 38 ( rear ) on the advice of Ess_Three ( cheers mate ) the car feels a lot more nimble at the back , it seems to follow the front wheels alot quicker , resulting in less understeer!

    Iv'e not gone crazy yet , but it's definitely improved the cars hadling......and it's free!:)

    ^^^Oh yeah i know what it says on the flap mate , i was wondering if anyone has tride any other settings?

    I'm running the front for 2 peeps and the rears for 4 peeps tightens up the handling IMHO!

    Havent played around with it too much, I found that the ride becomes soooo hard if the tyres are deflated differently. Not sporty hard, going to the chiro to get your back straightened hard :(
