I'm guilty of never actually trying a 'road' tyre on an Elise platformed car before... both of mine have been on ZZR's pretty much exclusively so I may use the AD08's on at least one dry day somewhere just to see how the car feels, to see if the threshold of grip comes down enough that I can actually have some fun!
I've got AD08RS as my wet-weather tyres, used them once at a dry Donington and it turns out they're really good - for about 4 or 5 laps, then they got very 'squirmy'. You've got more power, and an LSD, so you may be able to play with them a bit as the grip threshold lowers. I found them an exceedingly good tyre when all's said and done - but the R888R is a damn site grippier and consistent in the dry, but in the wet they're obviously much more frisky
I think that account probably adds up with what Andy has experienced. Where the AD08's start "going off" on a session, something like a ZZR or R888 just hold their ground so a generally going to be more consistent over a session. Looking forward to trying my AD08's really, first time running a different tyre, always like an opportunity to experiment.

Exactly.

You have to really drop the pressures. Testing at blyton told me ;

24f/26r COLD
3 laps resulted in
30f/32r HOT

I dropped that to 24r/22f HOT and it was fine all day doing 7-12 laps per stint.

IACV gasket acquired. I’ll see if I can find an hour or so over the weekend to clean the IACV.

I must look into getting the MFRU sorted as well

Everything is clean and working well.

I might have trapped the IACV wire at some point but hopefully you can all gloss over that and concede that its now working as it should

Result.
