Real nice car Jos. Can't wait for our next trackdays. There are enough wheels to be found in 4x100 so I think you will find a set in time. Maybe just for the time being a set of Rota Slipstreams or so? Lenso VDP's are also great wheels for track.
btw: I still have a set of BSA racings in 15". I believe they fit in a larger brake caliper, allthough no idea with your brakes. Downside is they are pretty beaten up and heavy...
I found some new track wheels. By far not as pretty as the gabs. But they are strong and functional. So I will go and test fit them this saturday. They are speedline corses in 15"
The first pic is an example the second are the actual wheels.
The wheels come fitted with a set of wet track tires. So if it rains in october I'm in luck, if not I'm gonna have to find some other tires.
Time for an update. Have been busy with the car and driving the nuts of lately
The speedlines are on and tested the michelins out on some very wet luxemburg roads.
I'm still on the fence about the speedlines. they are functional and strong and would look good with a repaint in black, but they don't look grat, but hey its a track wheel so I shouldn't care. Also they are heavy :/
The week after luxemburg it was time for a spa francorchamps trackday with my EK4 buddy Goosse.
had a blast, was on another set of wheels since the michelins had some dry cracks and I didn't trust them and I couldn't get a set of R1Rs in time. So I got to borrow some R888s of a friend of mine.
This was also the first time I could really test out the wilwoods, and I really can't praise them enough. I can brake really late and keep on performing lap after lap. The only thing holding me back was my stomach
Yesterday I attended "vroemdag" this is a day where you take Mentally handicapped kids for a couple of laps around the zolder circuit. followed by a free driving session afterwards. This is always good fun. Unfortunatly the track was soaking wet. so you had to be careful and you couldn't explore the limits really.
Next up this weekend is Mimms in the UK. I will be in the upper hall. and we'll stay at the hotel on saturday so we'll be cruising around the area a bit saterday evening. really looking forward to this as I expect to see a lot of quallity cars and meet new people from across europe.
yeah its hard finding a replacement, on the one hand the speedlines are very functional and suffice as a track wheel. But they just dont look as good as the gabs.
roadrunner I hope I understand, but Yes I did cut a hole in the front plate for the oil cooler. Most just remove this plastic panel but then you create a bypass flow and the radiators aren't as effective.
