                Keen to see how the AR-1s go, seem pretty cheap so hopefully they're not rubbish.

                  So I've had the wheel alignment done, and it drives nice.
                  I did specify that the car is a weekend vehicle and gets used for track days and hill climbs.
                  So this is what I got. Now I'm no professional on setting up a car, let alone reading a wheel alignment print out.
                  Anybody here good at reading/deciphering these?

                    Looks like a normal tyre shop alignment, I think you will want more camber than that.

                        The RS looks mint dude. Like a then new one I saw at the auto show as a kid.

                        Got to take one out for a punt, awesome cars. Had a '05 GT wagon in manual. Hated it, wish I had one of these instead.

                          Another lap dash done.
                          Was a fantastic day, had great fun and the car went really well with no damage done.
                          I came 2nd in class, but disappointingly I didn't get a new PB.
                          I had big hopes with the new tyres and minor suspension upgrades, but I was a full second off my my best.
                          The car handled the best it ever has, turned in really nice, and was very neutral between under and oversteer.
                          The tyres just didn't grip as well as I had hoped.
                          I was actually 0.31 seconds slower than the last time I was there with ADVAN A050's worn down to the canvas!!!
                          So the only things good about these NANKANG AR-1's is their price and they are quieter on the road (but I don't give a fuck about that)
                          I shall persevere with these, but i won't buy them again.

                          Here's some pictures from the day. 44 cars showed up, very well run event by the Tamworth Sporting Car Club.

                              I'm not tyre expert. Do the tyres need to be worn in more or something?
