Think I know which one makes engineering sense to me... and if it really made such a difference why didn't Lotus fit them as standard :smt017


...and Jim said: "It's a lot nicer to look at and smaller. Feels more sporty"

I'm in no way an engineer, so have no idea why I feel the Nardi has made such a difference to the handling of my car, but it is even more fun to drive now. Maybe it's all psychological, but I don't really mind, I'm happy :)

Definitely psychological - mine always feels better and goes quicker when it's clean! :)

Yeah, mine always seems to perform better with 99 octane fuel in it. Typical psychosomatic behaviour I suspect ?

PS these Nardi wheels ar a bit like buses. You wait ages for one to come along and then 2 come at the same time :D
