I would have to agree with the tire upgrade. You have a good setup already but the tires, while still a good performing summer tire, is towards the bottom end of the spectrum when it comes to high end performance and especially track driving. What size are you running on there now?

Check out the Bridgestone S-04 or Conti DW.

Put those on and tell me you don't notice better handeling and I will be shocked.

Thanks everyone for all the input.

I have a few other items to attend to with the car and then will be jumping straight into the mods suggested.

I'll be going for poly bushings and the front allignment plates. Pending the result of the allignment I may get the necessary parts to adjust the rear.

I'd say my tyres will be good for another few months however once I am due for some fresh rubber I will switch to one of the tyres recommended by Julian.

Cheers
