F/S: Unused Porsche 911 Pads Mintex MDB1456M1166 - 2 sets available

oh dear, how embarrassing!

Sorry Nick but I've justed checked the boxes and they are Mintex MDB1456M1166 - from my old 911. I saw the mintex boxes and assumed they were from the Atom.

Re: What are these for?

Looks like a pair of DIN flip-top sockets typically used for heated jackets and the like - I had one on mine

Re: Hello - and a question

Trickers, pull the collar towards you (as if to remove wheel) and push the wheel forward again and then release collar. There's two stages to it (If it's the SPA, others may vary)

Delete the fire extinguisher, I'm interested to know if an Atom has ever caught fire?

Re: Atom 2 or 3 wanted

I thought it looked familiar. All the panels appear to have had a fresh gelcoat

This is the first time for me a policy renewal has gone down - turned 50 last year so maybe that's why - shame the cars gone!

Re: Oversteers way to much...

I think they'd be fine for casual road use (check the sidewalls for any signs of cracking) but if you don't know how they've been stored then I personally wouldn't risk it on track or for 'spirited' road use.
