    A small favour...

    I appear to have a wheel wobble and I'm trying to rule out wheels. So does anyone have a spare set of alloys with tyres/just a set of fronts with tyres I could borrow to see if the steering still vibrates? Thanks Alex

    I've checked this already Phil. However will go back through it. I've had my wheels balanced at various places in the last 12months.

    My wobble has be present with two different sets of tyres now, so not sure tyres are the way to go. I'm thinking the issue may be with a wheel.

    I'd try for a supercharged car if you can because that charger whine is mega.

    Musing on a change to suit my age group..

    If I was in a position to buy i would. Unfortunately I'd need to sell mine and then find roughly another 3k 😔 Good luck with the sale Dr H, it truly is a stunning car.

    Rubber sheet in an S2? I thought that was only done during S1 production.

    Rich, I'd say get out there an drive as many examples as you can. I don't have any experience with either however audi auto/trip tronic boxes are mega money if and when they fault. Marcus Garner has had experience with the vantage and more than likely the r8 as well. I'd say give it a try we are only here once and not for as long as we'd like. Worst case you buy it don't enjoy it you just sell it again!

    I’m after borrowing a pair of S2 Toyota front wheels. Just to check to see if the wheel wobble is related to my wheels or not

    If the rears were causing the issues I’d assume you’d feel in through the entire car where as this is directly through the steering wheel so must be connected mechanically to the front suspension/steering setup.

    I was in the ball park with it. gonna clean the facings up this weekend.

    Unfortunately not. After a chat with Alan, we decided the next step would be to try a new set of discs, mine aren’t far off from needing replacement and there’s a possibility that they could be warped or could have debris behind them causing the wobble. Another MLOCer has kindly offered me the use of a spare set of discs to test this theory.

    Yeah not fun getting caught at the side of the road from a Dead Rad. The mushroom cloud of steam was impressive though.

    Yeah I’m assuming the beading has broken away. Will take them n get em refitted once I’ve double checked with Alan’s spare set on Tuesday.

    Yeah I remember Murray had a lot of trouble with his. Took the car out Saturday n marked up the wheel n tyres with a yellow mark. Checked them yesterday to find one of them appears to have slipped 3 to 4mm during a 15mile drive.
