Yes. When I went down to 15" 195 50 I lost quite a bit of grip but the R888's more than made up ( in the dry!) Amazing difference. Shame they are so pricey but there's pilot cups & Direzzo's to try.

That's what I'm going to do, and I'm going to get a defuser made to go in that gap, hopefully out of carbon fibre as soon as I can afford! Your car looks very tidy btw Marty! Are those r888s on it?

wasn't that glenns car and he broke it for spares as far as i remember

With no exhaust under the car, it should be possible to have a smooth underbody if you could have panels made up? A front flat undertray starting at the splitter, It might really impeove aerodynamics? You would probably need to allow airflow around rear diff for cooling? Not sure if its ever been done?

It could possibly but I don't think I'll be going to that extreme tbh, sounds like a lot of work making it all up to fit and fix it too the car?

I'll try and remember to get one tomorrow Johnny, it's pretty much all back together now any way!

If it was an ivory one then i would guess it was Glenn's car, well his old one i brought the shell off him after it was broke.
Unfortunately he sold the bumper on though before i got it :-(
All that you have to do is follow the line from the existing exhaust cut out bud.
Did you ever get this Db tested mate?
Always put off by them due to a lot of tracks now being 100db & lower limits, look cool as you like & scare prius drivers!

No I cut the 5 bolt flange off the old elbow and the shaped the 3 inch pipe to the flange then welded it to it, it took hours just to do thatand get it right! It's a very fiddly time consuming job, but if it's worth doing properly......

Pete - slightly off topic question...
Do you have a link for the latches you used to hold your front bumper on mate ?
They look very neat in your vid - i need to do the same thing !
Exhaust sounds awesome by the way - has it settled in now and changed note at all ?
Cheers,
AL.

I don't have a link pal, can't remember where I got them from but I'm 99% sure they were off eBay! And no it hasn't settled down.....it sounds bad ass!

Stu - Pete....
Cheers boys !
It's a job i will 100% be doing as the track behind my house that leads to my garage is not great so having the bumper off to drive it up and down will be perfect.
Just looking at what people are using and experience with different devices - spring or catch etc.

Pete - LOL at your exhaust sound - i guess that's the deal with front/side exit..... loud and badass !!!!
