Re: Avon A53 only available for front tyres?

Avon A53 only available for front tyres?

can someone please clarify this? i was told that they are only supllying A53 compounds for the fronts only while the rears are A11

was interesting to see how soft the A53 were and so much flex the side walls had compared to my Michelins. Hoping to get a set and try them out.

Re: Mental Capacity

If you are able to relax and slow everything down, you have more time to think and actually know what is happening inside the car. When this happens you can actually recall the mistakes you are making and try to correct them. Being physically fit helps also, physical fitness is not only about being ...

Re: 2000 restricters ?

Maybe I should get Tristan to build a Toyota engine complete with TB's and bolt that to the back of my car instead! :)

Re: 2000 restricters ?

You know full well that power figures are meaningless on their own. You need to put them in context somehow and the only data that can be analysed is TSL's timing results, which brings into driver ability, gearing, aero, tyres, setup and power into the equation. Unless there is something wrong with...

Re: 2000 restricters ?

I can't quite help thinking this may be more of a valid argument if you were closer to the ultimate pace of the Formula Renaults, but by your own admission elsewhere you've got some way to go. At Brands Hatch, first time out in Mono for the FR2000, on the smaller restrictor, in racing conditions, t...

Re: 2000 restricters ?

Mono 2000 is a mix of chassis and engine regs - people don't have to run a Dallara but it is generally the best chassis and almost certainly a better chassis than the Formula Renault. I think a more valid argument for the Formula Renault is whether the chassis should be allowed to be run with a Mon...

Re: 2000 restricters ?

I can't help thinking that all this information was in the public domain before you bought the Formula Renault. Formula One moved to fuel injection in the 1960's. I don't know when F3 moved over, but problably late 70's/early 80's. Road cars moved over by the mid 1980's. What other 4 wheel formula ...

Re: 2000 restricters ?

Well if a Toyota engine is making 200bhp on TB, vs a VVT engine making 200 bhp, why should the VVT be held back by 30bhp? I dont think the VVT can make up for the 30BHP and the Torque deficit. I am willing to put money, that in a drag Tristans Dallara would beat the Renault by 4 or 5 car lenghts wit...
