Nearside rear tyre under-inflated? Glad your rear sprong is okay though...

 

And apparently you use the brakes rarely so henceforth known as Le's Go, Lesmo....

Dear Friends,

I will cover your concerns as such.

Mr Chubbs I liken myself to one Mr Jenson Button smooth on the controls and sympathetic to the equipment..  I did wonder if you would notice the W Brace.  I CGI'd the rust in  :lol:

Mr JohnFK

I checked before and after MOT and they are pretty much spot on 35

I suspect it could do with 4 wheel alignment at some point after 5 years it’s got to be out I would say.

Mr Milanored, I have little use of the brakes travelling when I do I have actually once managed the entire journey to the car park at work with nearly no brakes. Most mornings If I have to brake perhaps 8 times in the whole journey. The car pretty much spends its time on the A14 and most of that at the moment is 40mph.  :D

However the dealer was shocked they were originals.  Now a parachute might just work.  I told the dealer I use other cars to slow down.  That and the drag from the Huge Wing I carry around...

I have a tread gauge from CAT in the car as well.  Am I the only person who keeps a Pressure Gauge and Tread Gauge in  the car?

Yes, I have one of those too :)

 

I keep a pressure gauge in the car, but not a tread gauge.  I don't drive the car so hard that I have to check if my tyres are legal at the end of every journey ;)

Meanwhile my old 350z was MOT’d a few days ago and the result was mixed. It’s had a hard second part of its life...

What a good idea, Les - Think I'll see if I can find the reg numbers of my old Z's. One of them was YE55 ZZZ* - can't remember the others.

 

 

*just checked it - passed every time.

 

...now to look for the others.
