Well I thought a photographer took a pretty nice shot of my car at a track day today, so I though an avatar change was in order :cool:

After quite some time messing around with resizing and photbucketing, and editing out number plates - It transpires that my avatar is in fact practicaly indistinguishable from the orginal.

Hence this thread :rolleyes:

I'm still recovering from the disappointment of not being able to see the tyres being pulled off my rim in 100x100 pixels.

So I attach the following photgraphic sequence to prove, that I have, in fact, changed my avatar.

So there :p

(The keen avatar connoisseur will notice that it is picture 3 in this sequence).












Regards,
TB :)

They were a very worn set of pilot sport Cups (trackday tyres) at the start the day, this didn't do m,uch to improve them :)
They create a lot of extra g-forces compared to normal road tyres and make the car handle very neutrally - a lot more fun.

I probably had the pressure a bit low on that session, the track was damper earlier and suddenly a lot of extra grip came around.

The car would be pulling around 1.2g in the pic, times (1400kgs + two people) is a lot of effort for the sidewalls.

Think I will have to trade my wife in, all I could get out of her was
"Well, (sigh) I suppose each of those pictures is very slightly different.." :lol:
