But aren't AD07 had been stopped from production? This means TS will be getting old tyres from few years ago...
Yes I know. When I used them in 2012, the manu date was 2008. 4 year old tyres still gripped like mad and lasted 1.5 years on a myvi. Now 2015 don't know when the manu date will be but 4-5 years still ok la for extreme performance tyres. Galvanization would've been complete and the adhesives should still be in good condition. The synthetic rubber / natural rubber blend on the other hand I dunno la.


Or you have close connection with tyre shop guys?
VR2Turbo is the taiko of tyre shops. Everywhere we go with him the shop fellas wave at him and last time when I went with him to change tyres the shops opening price was straightaway the lowest possible price they could offer. No need to bargain even. :biggrin:

Shield your air filter bro. Custom made the cover to prevent it sucking hot air from the engine bay.
Take time doing it. Done properly, worth all the time you take.
Driving a turbo car which sucks in hot air is very annoying, irritating, stressful, uneventful, you name it.

Too old the rubber compound will harden fast, then traction will suffer....:smokin:

Bro, take my advice. Open up your own tyre shop, probably the entire zerotohundred members will buy tyres from you.
There is more to it than just open shop and sell....hhahhahahhaa:driver:

if me...i'll put the air filter direct infront at the bumper (but not too low...just about the same height of the turbo snail)

then the intercooler piping route can use the empty location of stock air filter....better heat management

1.5 years on daily drive? Seems like the tyre wear is quite fast.

Then next time you change tyres, remember to invite sifu VR along. :biggrin:

Since done already just make heat shield block the air filter. Cool air can come from headlamp side, radiator is on the other side, so just nice.....:biggrin:

that was on my satria 1.6 auto... no hard acceleration since it was auto....but my driving style = constant speed all around (even in corner, speed drop kept to minimum :driver: :biggrin: :rofl: ) :burnout:


i remember back then when using yokohama parada...only just 45k km all finished out becom slick tyre :rofl: i travel around 3k-5k km per month... so u can calculate that into how many months that tyre last? :biggrin:

*but my wife drove that satria most of the time actually...and guess what...she too use that driving style just at lower speed than me :p

You drive extensively, no wonder....

Is parada still being produced now? And is it on the same category with Neova AD07, AD08?

Yours still FWD turbo right? If 4WD turbo, the wear should be equal assuming the torque split is 50:50

Ipoh I'm also not so sure which shop got these kind of performance tyres...

Yokohama Parada Spec 2 is still available, but they should be HP category only. Very far from Advan Neova.
Yup, FWD but it is also fun to drive with raw front power. 4WD is stable

In progress. Car starts. Haven't installed a lot of stuff.
Oil cooler/bov/atf cooler/e manage+ dyno/exhaust piping/honda oddesey brakes/ still pending

Was thinking of using 15inch swift rims cause
I believe its more durable than alza rim. Any other suggestions guys? Must look stock as possible

Does a heat shield makes a huge difference for a turbo car? watch this video below

I thought Parada Spec 2 is somewhere like in Extreme or Max because of its thread design. Like something comparable to R1R, Direzza Star Spec... But now it seems that it is only like on par with ATR Sport.

If FWD, then your front will raise up when you accelerate hard in 1st gear? And is there such thing as torque steer as I have heard from many about high powered FWD cars. Not so sure what is torque steer. Difficult to steer during high speeds?

Hmm, how about you try and find information about the weight differences between Swift and Alza rims? The lighter one will give you more advantage. Or you can look at other stock 15" from other cars as well?
