"Nice little earner" [Arthur Daley - Minder]

TEN PER CENT for the introduction leading to buyer buying. :thumbup:

Another couple of Arthur's pearls of wisdom:

"You can't find a good honest-to-God decent professional thief anymore, they've all gone to live in bloody Spain." :oops:

"You make contact with your customer. Understand their needs. And then flog them something they could well do without." :eusa-shhh:

I have not had the chance to try different makes or compounds.
These Yokohamas were recommended by GBS as a compromise, combining general road conditions and use on track days.
As the car weighs approx 600 kgs, something reasonably sticky is needed.
These perform well, but on wet or even dry loose surfaces, care is needed.
The car is well balanced and set up by the factory to be road/race compromise with adjustable dampers wound to be mid-way.
Wheelspin or getting it to step out of line is possible in the dry, if being a bit silly, but in imperfect conditions, delicate control needed. :oops:
With 175 bhp and 600 kgs that is approx 300 bhp/ton which can be a handful. :crazy:
It is also great fun and an experience not to be missed! :dance:
Must be the closest thing to a racer on the public roads. :evil:

And Del Boy and Rodders. :clap:
Being a product of the East End of London, I relate to them and others [excepting EastEnders itself - yuk!].
