It was at my local track which is a power rather than handling track and was setting tyre pressures lower as I managed to track down the Nankang AR1 tec advise from the UK .

Set them 26 F 28 R cold and they came up to 35 F 33 R hot and that was at the higher end of the recommended range so will set them a pound or 2 lower next time.

Kicking myself for forgetting to take my IR temp gauge to check as Nankang also supplied the best working range temperatures as well.

Used almost 3/4 rs of the 50 litre tank of 98 over the 30 hot laps.

Managed to better my time on the sprint circuit .

As expected the Civic ran faultlessly with the temp gauge sitting @ the same place as it was driving to and from the track

Forgot to say that I have almost equaled times set in my 380hp ATW RWD turbo that was driven by a younger me in the FWD /WWD 195 hp ATFW Honda Civic TR :)

Obi I think that as I get more track time I am more committed when it comes to late braking and corner speed as I gain confidence in my "new" FWD Honda.

PS the stripes would add weight and the "Mouse" is a heavy beast @ 1320kg
