    sunday sunday SUNDAY

    Sunday to relax. I slept in. Going to unpack from vacation and maybe get in a workout. Got a foot of mail to go through.

    Morning folks

    Slept in here also. Cleaning the rubber off a set of slicks so the wheels will be back in balance. Going to do a few laps at Leguna Seca next weekend and want everything in order.
    Plastic putty knife and some alcohol (for me) and couple hours in the sun

    What is that on the tire? Melted rubber or asphalt?

    That is amazing. I guess the rubber compound is designed to be more elastic and sticky at high speeds and temperatures. So on your cool down laps it must get less elastic and more "flaky". wow

    Yes when they get warm they really stick and have a very predictable slide. Totally different then even the best street tires
    DOT race tires are pretty sweet also I use them on the street as they "time out" (years in use) faster then the wear out so in my opinion are best for sports cars

    So far I've always used the Pirelli P zeros on my porsche. And the prior one. But I'm pretty sure I never get close to their limits. LOL

    Hey, yesterday I was driving home and a vette and Shelby GT350 pulled onto the NY thruway in front of me. I followed them for about 15 minutes just so i could enjoy the sound of that Shelby Mustang. Those things sounds great. The GT350 is the Mustang that has a flat plane crank V8 unlike the regular GT. Definitely sounds different.
