Tony, if your tyres differ from the shitty run flats your car came with then they are a mod - just because Carl chose a better tyre mod than you did you cant go whingeing about it...
He isnt whingeing because you have an LSD and a custom down pipe setup, or a petrol engine lol!!!
I'm not whingeing mate - everyone knows what modifications I've done to my car, and I'm not begrudging Carl for choosing the tyres that he did. I've not once complained about his choice - I'm more bemused by the fact that he doesn't make any mention of this mod. Strange as it may seem to you, I'm one of the people who's constantly encouraging Carl to get into the 12s, and trying to work out a way for him to do it consistently. I take the piss out of him because I know how hard he's trying!! I also know how he is trying to compare his car to mine, which in itself is a futile exercise given they're totally different machines. He has been making a point of how quick his car is over 60ft, and I totally agree that it is. However, my point I'm trying to put across to him is that the tyres are giving a distinct advantage there, and one that he cannot (as he seems to be doing) ignore.
Make comments where you see fit, but please try do understand the full salient points of a situation before taking a side, whichever one that is!!
