I use to run the Ferodo pads last year. they are great pads. how you liking the R888? what size are you running? I am running the RA1's. very sticky but hard to find the size I want
Thanks! Let me know if you decide on a rental, our local Lotus shop has some great cars available.

R888's are as follows:
255/35/18 (rear)
225/40/18 (front)

I used R888's on my Lotus and they performed great, so decided to throw a set on this car. On the track they perform as expected -- sticky and predictable. On the street my only complaint is that they're pretty loud. I think it's mostly the rears, but there's quite a bit of road noise which is most apparent at low speed. These tires are my dedicated set for the track, so this is a non-issue for me. RFTs go right back on when the car transforms back into a daily driver.

The pads are still pretty noisy for my taste (I prefer silence, if you couldn't tell), so the stockers may go back on soon too.
