    Hi all,
    What sort of speed should you be entering the corners at b'ham wheels? been a few times to watch but not as yet plucked up the courage to try and drift there but im now starting to think about it.

    Top end of 2nd gear, in a normally geared car. If you got the power you can hook up 3rd

    Because the owners need to go in faster and more aggressive. Too many people rely on power, and you can't in an mx5

    As fast as you can, but on a small track like that you should be trying to twin and get as close as possible.

    What are you talking about you spastic?
    If you want to be a little internet bitch to me you might want to have a fucking clue what you're on about before you say it, not one bit of that is correct lol.

    Hope this helps.

    This was a question I was going to ask as its my first time at wheels this Monday coming.

    I've done Buxton twice before. Spoke to a fella before at Buxton and joe-sef who said its the same just wider.

    Gonna go easy at first then see what happens.

    Also, to anyone that runs E36s there (Everyone near enough?) I've got a 1.8 diff on my 323, would it be worth changing it to a longer one or would i be able to hook third?

    an oval like wheels or buxton is easilly linkable in an mx5, full track no shit.

    Top end of second, big flicks, no braking.
