Litchfields, Building

Well another early morning trip to the Iain,s shrine for GTRs,
left at 6.30 this morning , up there for bang on 9.
Very impressed how big the new footings are for the new Workshops.

Anyway. Don't know what I'm going to do for a whole week without the `GTR.
I never use it during the week anyway, But its there if i want too,
So theres a big gap on the drive were she usually sit.
Any way had the builder round Thursday evening and another double garage arranged so the car can have its own new house to keep warm in.

The cars is 4.25 at the moment and coming back with 4.5 so hoping i can feel the difference not just in the pocket department.

No, sorry but it going to be a vote for Dunlops,
I'll put up with the tyre noise for the extra grip ,
Michelins are a good second tyre in my books,



We did have a good summer last year, if it's as good as that this year I'll be more than happy

Not in the WET.. That why they are on the car for the winter,
The car was designed to run rigid tyres, that why they had bridgestones then Dunlops, Nissan spend millions designing the car and suspension with these tyre fitted, I'm not a racing drive, so I'll put my trust in someone who has built the car and has done for as long as I can remember,

Hey guys, I spoke to a certain MR Andy Middlehurst of Middlehurst Nissan and a x Skyline GTR race driver and he stated that he would not run the GTR on anything other than Run Flats, because as I have been banging on for at least 6 years, THE CAR WAS DESIGN FOR THEM !! or the BRIDGESTONE tyre was designed for the car !!!

and I aint gonna argue with him or Nissan who spent a fortune with all sorts of super computers !!!
