Leak street 3rd February meet at halfords In south ruslip at 7:00pm or meet us at leak street. For the amount of people saying they are going and what to meet us at leak street can I ask you all to parkproperly as there will be other cars turning up for the event. Please Do Not rev your engines or wheel spin as the police will turn up and tell us all to depart and move along so please don't spoil it for others. Thanks you all and keep the word going round and hope to see you all there

To fill the arch you also have to lower your car if it's not already..Doesnt matter so much if you go with 18 or 19 , you can run more tire with 18s so to to fill the arch it's has to do with lowering your car and wheel offset..
