Thanks I decided to take the car to bits justnow while the weather is poor to sort the parts I wasn't happy with, rather than wait and then not be happy with it when the better weather comes.

Another big thanks to wheelcoat for the 2 day turn around on my wheels even though I said no rush lol

Thanks Sean.

I have my first trackday booked in the car next month so looking forward to that. I think it may be a bit soft on spring rate as I believe it was mainly setup as a road car by cornering force.

Do people run up rated anti roll bars on these cars or does the double wishbone suspension mean spring rate is the only way to control roll ?

Ideally wouldn't want to go too hard as that's the mistake I made with the Motons on my old Porsche and ended up going through 3 sets of springs to find a set up that worked.

I will do this track day to get a feel for the car then look into roll bars .

I will probably go for the corneringforce bladed bars as I believe that was Niks plans for the car so CF has already done the springs and valving to suit. I have dyno plots for the shocks with road and track dampening settings , looks to be sprung fairly light at 300/450.

Do Cornering Force still fit rear ARBs?

Im not sure I will probably give them a call next week, they are still listed on their site but cant open the details as its being updated just now.

I like the bladed front design looks quick and easy to adjust as well.

Any other bars recommended like the ES 1" ?
