    suspension front and rear should be rebuilt- bike runs but transmission or something it shot- wont go into gear. all factory vinyls removed. bent frame slider/frame mount bolt from high-side. power commander (tuned by John).

In the end the chunks missing from my front tires is what stopped from going out any more but the day was nearly done anyway. When i got home and checked the brakes i still had about 75% fronts and only about 25% rears so those are getting replaced. I dont know what they started at as i was only concerned enough to check the fronts but i think they may have been low before hand.

    It was a pretty nice track i was on. Its the bedford autodrome. 4.2 miles long with a 2.3k back straight. Pretty featureless other than that. Its built on an old airfield so its very flat. Im gonna try and get out on it with my nsr if i can but they have weird trackday laws here so i might not be able too.

    What tires were you running?

    Shit no name brand that were on the car. To be fair they did much better than i thought they would but the paid the price. Ive got a line on some yokohama's that i going to try and get one before this weekend day at brands hatch.
    I think my suspension had a lot to do with the tires destroying themselves too. I took the tires off to check the brakes and its a weird mix of msport stuff and bilsteins but not balanced front and rear. Front right is bilstein and the rest are msport. Probably just gonna get some cheap coil overs and rip everything out.
