Maxxis i-Pro

I’ve been needing a decent pair of tyres at the front for quite a while now, As I’ve had a lot of understeering issues on the track, And a lack of front end grip in general. So I headed down to JAX tyres Smithfield to get some new shoes on.

 So, Your probably wondering why I went with Maxxis ? Well I used to use Maxxis tyres back in my mountain biking days, And I never had a problem with them, They are quite reputable in the biking industry too.

As soon as I jumped back in the car, And turned out of the driveway, I could already feel great feedback, It’s amazing what a decent pair of tyres can do. The real test will be the upcoming Twilight Drift, And a new event dubbed Mid-Week Drift.

This weekend, I’ll be ripping out the soft top, And tinkering with other things.

Stick around.


On It’s Way

So today I started painting the sideskirts, But I ran into a few issues. The spray can started to leak and caused a lot of drip marks on the sideskirts, Shortly after that, the paint started to fog up and was looking rather frosty. I was pretty pissed off to say the least. So I dropped everything, Cooled down for a little and headed over to Peps to get some more paint. Turns out the supplier had labeled the cans wrong, So with my acrylic paint, I had enamel thinners matched with it. Peps were more than happy to supply me with 2 new cans for free, And I bought another can for good measure.

So anyway, I managed to get the front bumper painted and cleared, And the skirts have been sanded back, Ready for a repaint. Hopefully I’ll have time to finish off the skirts this weekend.

In other news, I scored a free set of Bridgestone tyres … Awesome!
