But is 17" big enough for such a big car?  :?:   :twisted:


Well, looks like Rudi found them  :D

If 17" is enough? It is what most race classes use. This is why I want to try this size.

I also used them on my 850,



Only in the front. The semi track tires use a much stiffer sidewall and on the Zandvoort track they have proven to me very capable. Lots of traction and unlike the rear tires they didn't give up after five laps. I do have to add that more people using Bridgestone S03's on the Zandvoort track were complaining about the performance of the tire.

The rims Rudi posted are very nice, especially in black! Very racy!

Are you going to put some stickers on the SDII like on the SDI? I like the 'Ferrari-moose'  :D

Johann, those black rims are looking  very nice.
I think they will look very agressive on your Demon, black and white looks awesome.
Every time i drive my tuned 850,  i love the way it drives and sounds.

Rims will take at least another 4 weeks, maybe 6.

I received the steering wheel today,

If you have a racing seat/seatbelt the airbag doesn't help that much.

Being impaled on that wheel...What a way to go!  :)

Compliments for the choice of the rims. I think it will look great; and to be honest, pegs are starting to become a bit 'standard'. In other words; nice to see something else! Especially on the SDII.

It seems like you took a turn into a more agressive way  :twisted:  a rollcage wouldn't be out of place either  8)

Well, basically those are my thoughts.
I like the Pegs very much but to many cars are added with them nowadays.

I'm still not sure which tires to use with the 17" rims.
I received prices today of the Toyo R888 235/40-17 tires and they are pricey.

For the OZ 18" I have decided to stick with the Bridgestone S03 225/40-18 tires.
I already had 2 new rear tires on the Pegs and 225/35-18 front tires which weren't even half way but the tire center couldn't pull them from the rims without damaging the tires.. I will receive 2 new 40 series tires with discount.  

The 17" rims will take another 3-4 weeks so I have been informed today.

I drove the car all day today with the new steering wheel and also with new alignment settings which were done early last week and now finally there is hope.

The car really starts to behave to my liking. Gravity is back in the car and the corners feel a lot more conficent even while being on winter tires.

When I had the car on the ring last october it really was a bitch to drive, felt loose and disconnected.

whoaa :-o :-o
attaboy johann!!!
Been out for a while(damn slavedriver-bosses!!!) but what a fantastic modification the car has gone through!
I a few posts earlier you alsomentioned that the car would probably see a racing track sooner than people would have expected.
You've got something in mind???
would love to see the demon in action.(although the movies are very, very, very impressive indeed).
a fantastic inpiration for all of us who are never satisfied with the performance of our "flying bricks".
Thought my car was quite fast after the upgrades, until I saw the movie!!
See  you soon at furness!!!
respect bro!! :mrgreen:

Matthijs,

I wanted to visit Zandvoort early this month but that didn't happen. A slight miscommunication..

I have added Radicast caps to close the headlight wiper holes in the bumper.



Also fitted the second Sparco seat,



And the Bridgestone S03 tires are on the car again, on the OZ rims,

I like the grill! But the egg-grill is more racy.

And the moose..?

The grill looks super.
Which colour did you use, maybe a colournumber.

I want that too, on my 850.
