    Cool CJ's GP2 / New member

    Some of you know me from insta and Facebook etc however i've finally sorted my life out and joined MT.

    Used to drive a 315 BHP Leon Cupra and loved it to bits, but it doesn't compare to the GP2. Never thought i'd own a Mini but hey ho, best car i've owned.. so far .

    Had the car 7 months. The spec on these is crazy as an 'out the box' job. Bilstiens, 6 pots, carbon spoilers, diffuser bla bla. You'll find me at a lot of track days and sprint events

    Since ownership i've done the following:

    -Black headlight rings. Need to do the rears now!
    -Challenge diffuser carbon style
    -Stage 1 Manic map at Lohen. 257 BHP & 398 NM.
    -Running semi slicks, Avon ZZR's
    -Decat

    .. and just the usual TLC.

    Hopefully catch up with a lot of you now that i am on here and can keep track of events etc.

    And now the GP.

    How are you finding the ZZRs compared to the Kumhos?

    I purchased the car from a Mitsubishi dealer so it came with some faulkens on and not the Kumhos.

    I had ToyoR888 on the car as well for a short while and the Avon's felt just as good. I didn't notice the different between Avon and the Toyo.

    Good car, looks great! Glad to see this isn't staying standard and is being driven like it deserves!!

    Have you thought about Nankang NS2Rs? I was tempted by the Avons but at 140 a corner + VAT for a tyre that rated to last up to 900 miles... I steered clear. Do they hold up well? The Nankangs surprised me and are a popular choice for the track!

    Cant wait to see this in person!

    Yes the Avon's are great. i've got some good footage on youtube driving them in the rain lol , you'll be surprised at the grip levels.

    Yeah i have thought about those. I need some more tyres soon, i was thinking the NS2R's or even the Federal 595rsr'S. I get the Avon's ridiculously cheap, so use those for track & sprints.

    What tyres are you running now?
