Have to agree there about the wheels they do look well.Was the experience worth it in terms of learning?

Third pic down, at Barn corner possibly? That's exactly why the omega is so sensative to camber settings/wears it's tyres inner edge/needs double wishbone front suspension.

Look at the contact patch of the inner front tyre. Fully on the inner edge even with lower firmer suspension. Scuff scuff scuff. Elite are even worse obviously :o

Increase the camber to fix the under stear and the inner edge of the opposite side gets trashed even more, and on every corner.  :'(

Rear is similar too. I wonder if raising the rear ride height would help....?

not sure how car would take corners on soft suspension
btw this was real test for big brakes if they do the job and they where great  :y
