hey andrew, love the quarry pics...
i notice in some of your shots you car is shod in what looks like slick tyres...
can/do you use these on the road over there? or just on the track
either way they certainly make the car look very cool in the pics..
Yes, they are the original A005 Cup car slicks the car is wearing. And yes, that's what the car wears in the Summer, on the street.
And yes, people have told me that it's extremely unsafe, and that the car would explode if I did it. And guess what? No explosion.
In fact, the car drives fantastic on the street with slicks...even....***GASP***...in the rain...***GASP***
It's rare that I drive it in rain, just the odd shower on my way home from a shoot, but when I do it's just fine.
And no, it's not legal. But what care I for legal? Is this car really legal at all???
So, I'm not recommending people use slicks on the street, but they work fine for me.
P.S. I'm also a wheel/tire whore, and have 4 sets at any given moment that I can swap to if I'm planning on going highway speeds.
