At the next meet, weather permitting I wonder if there is someone who can handle a car, who would like to take mine out for a bit of a spin (not literally if course) I'm just curious as to if it's behaving how it should, I've had new tyres(400 miles on them) new drop links, track rod ends, new pz struts, rear control arms and suspension and steering set up, after all of this the cars handling characteristics have changed a few times, so I'm not certain how good the handling is (in theory should be good) anyone up for this (or before if your localish to Coventry)

As much as I'd like this, I would be mortified if something happened to my car, not sure if it could handle the shock of being tracked. 🤣
