A mate has a punch all set up to punch the tyres off the rims so I can mount on Mugen rims. I've seen some he has done and they look really good. Its far cheaper than buying the OS1 parts or trying to sell what I have and re buy.

Reliable source from a serpent distributor said, there will be a new car available in Nov. Let's see!

Well that sucks considering how long the 960-08 has been out for.

IF that is true, it is not long to wait and see.

I highly recomend swapping all your tires out. I suppose it depends on driving style, track properties, etc. but for me, the OS2 is the way to go. I was ready give up on the car but switched to the OS2 and WOW what a difference! With the old type, I could not get a neutral steering or ballanced tire wear. Even running harder rears, softer front springs (and a whole bunch of other stuff) I still wore the rear tire at 3:1 vs front wear. Now the car uses the same compound front and rear, with ballanced tire wear and steering characteristics.

Well, I just ran the GLC and if anyone needs a set up for high bite and tight track let me know. My car was great and had a ton of steering. Once I found a balance for my style of driving the car was great. Give me a few days to recover and I will try to post it here.

I was at the GLC as a spectator with 2 of our boys. They (wife and I too) were very excited to see all the big boys showing their skill, it was intense. Will be glad when you post your setup.

Did you drive with a "higher" rear-end / body mount?
