will we be seeing you in may for the triangle run?
Hi Gaz how r u m8?

I'll be up for a triangle run in May if I'm not working or more importantly if the car is ready
Took the front calipers off yesterday and found the OSF main brake line corroded and leaking, it's the original stainless one too so can't crush it to stop leak so it's slowly bleeding dry I hope the ABS modulator will be ok when I eventually flush the system thru

I have FK452 on the front and Avon ZV5 on the rear. Personally I prefer the ZV5 tyres but the FK452 are ok.

Hi Simond,
there was a similar thread just before xmas asking the same question.
then....then majority response was that they are a decent tyre.
I've got falkens on the GTV and have used them in the past of the few kit cars I had. Even thrased around a track they performed well. I haven't done the same with the GTV yet!
Camskill,co,uk are pretty fair on price
