I can indeed. Do they say "Peugeot Sport"? The bottom part of the pad is a little obscured.

You don't have to buy an R to have those things. We sell exhaust and brake systems similar to what you see (even a 6-pot system is about to be released for the front that we already have on our car with 360mm discs). As for the spoiler, hmm, we will be looking into this when it is available.

Exhaust:

Don't they use Goodyear tyres when it's being used on a track?

Ship your Asbo to RSA, I will give you feedback on them.

My MPS came with Dunlop SP something something (Cant care less for rubbish tires). On smooth tarmac, it spins first and second gear into the limiter. The other day I had the traction control flash in 4th :shock:

Goodyear tyres designed in America and best for American cars due to the weight of them ;) I have always found better performance from Michelin's on the street. Again it is all about confidence of having a great tyre when you need it, but Goodyear's on an RCZ doesn't seem to be the best choice IMO and not worth the cost of them either.

I kinda agree with you about the Contis. I don't have the utmost confidence in them and find that they can't be relied on to give me the grip I sometimes seek in the wet...wheel spin tastic at junctions. :thumbdown: However, I cannot justify getting rid of perfectly good tyres to replace them all...and I have just had to spank a significant figure on replacing a punctured one. :thumbdown:

Hard tyres = longer life but less traction (usually costs less too)
Softer tyres = shorter life but better traction and "progress" ;) (but usually cost more)

Not many Car maker's use Michelin high performance tyres..... :eusa-think:why i dont know cracking tyres especially in wet conditions, as for the eagle F1"s they look far better than the continentals so do most tyres...LOL...l don't know the price of the Goodyears compared to the very expensive Michelin tyres.

Back on Topic....my opinion is, them wheels are too ornate for my liking and look aftermarket,maybe they will offer alternatives,didnt the rcz-r concept car have Brembo's on it :eusa-think: The spoiler is a joke,these spoilers belong to the 1970's,as most agree on this Forum the rcz looks better with the spoiler down,it just seems like they ran out of imagination and stuck a bit of Formed plastic on the back.

Price.........
Performance Stats........
Handling.......

Maybe these will be better than its, half hearted attempt in the style department.

That is true about the manufacturer's, but Michelin's are the best IMO for ultimate street use as well as track use, and yes they are expensive but well worth it! Yes the Conti's that come on the RCZ are not performance tyres.
