    Has anyone tried Manlius Hot Rod 59s? I'm trying to decide what to put in my R7. I usually use Fralins but I wan't to try something different. Something a bit hotter. Anyone have any experience with these?

    Bought those 6 months ago and installed it on my CR8. I found them really stiff and too articulate in some ways. Tough to describe but I didn't dig it at all... I ended up selling the CR8...
    It's probably a matter of taste...

    By the way, Mick is a really nice guy and very helpful. It's been a pleasure to deal with him even if I found the Hot Rod 59 didn't suit my taste.

    Just to echo this statement, Mick couldn't be a nicer guy. Really, REALLY like the Landmarks I got from him in my coral Firebird.
