    Default new boots

    well i got my veccy some new boots and had them put on tonight and what a difference they have made, the car is more stable in a straight line, alot quieter and a hell of alot lighter on the steering, only complaint - a bit of vibration at 80 mph (is that the balancing it wasnt there before) so if anybody wants some cheap used nct5's!!!!

    The vibration will be the balancing Wayne, take it back mate.

    Yep, definitely. The Vec/Signum is sensitive to how it'a balanced. After I had all four boots replaced I had some vibration. Went back and got them to look at it again. A more experienced guy did it this time and told me that there was too much weight on. Redid it and it was fine.
