They both look stunning, well done.

So, you were saying in the other thread you needed some more camber, is this because slicks flex less than the road tyres, and standard is not enough to keep them flat on the ground when cornering? Is it just a matter of maximizing grip, or is there any handling issue? How's the car on the limit with slicks, compared to road tyres? Glad to know the suspension copes with the added grip and doesn't start feeling soft.

I find the 250 setup quite aggressive for a road car, and huge fun sliding around... and as road tyres go, the Michelin PS are ace, as far as I can tell.

the slicks are designed to run with a certain amount of camber..... look at any race car. the spider runs loads of camber ... the megane has worn out the front left on the edge in 2 trackdays (its the one which does the most work anyway), reason being if the tyre had camber, the edge which is wearing wouldn't make contact with the ground under cornering. so we'll adjust the setup and try again with 2 new fronts to se if our theory is correct.....

I'm not I'm afraid. Work commitments in the last few months and upcoming months have put paid to attending and also the brake (or anything for that matter) upgrades. On the plus side I've saved up a fair bit so will be hopefully sorting brakes etc over the winter and completed by trackday opening next RS season.
