Was hearing good things about these at oulton park from a couple of people. Do they do them in a saxo friendly size though? ie 195/50-15

Yes so far. Well im not 100% sure on fronts as theyre adjustable and the key for the damping is gold. Toad said they were very good though and very sharp and responsive.

Admittedly i'm not using the car anymore, but this is the setup it had:

Engine
1997 106 GTi 1.6 16v engine
3" Pugsport
Raceland enclosed induction
Powerflex lower mount
BakerBM GrpA lower mount fork bush

Suspension
-60mm on 'Puma' springs
Spax adjustable PSX dampers
Powerflex ARB and Wishbone bushes
Upper OMP strutbrace
24mm Rear ARB

Brakes/Wheels
266mm 306 XSi brakes
Mintex discs
OMP Road & Sport pads
Brake 'ducts' (aluminium tubing cable tied to the wishbone to scoop air from under the car, aimed at the calipers)
106 Rallye Steels (5.5J)
Kumho KU31 tyres

Interior
Rear bench, doorcards, parcel shelf, carpet & sound deadening removed
1 x Raceland reclining bucket seat
1 x RMD Maximum Protection bucket seat
106 Rallye 'half' door cards
RMD 330mm dished steering wheel







I personally wouldn't say it felt to be a particularly bad setup, but the 24mm rear ARB definately made the rear a bit too lively for my tastes, perhaps because it was mated to the 19mm front, which unbalanced it? Power wise, it seemed to go well enough, and the brake and tyre combo seemed to be great, obviously the tyres could've been much stickier, but as a compromise between daily use and track work, they seemed to be well up to the job.

This is my rally car, all built to current MSA spec by myself and family/friends helping along the way. Logbooked etc.



Plans are, attack the CMSG championship next year. Few years experience then do some gravel rallying. Currently building a full race engine for it.

Cheers.
