So I went with the rt660 which I was told was the new 615+. Now just to figure out what pressure to run
660s are great, but they're not a 615+. they don't wear nearly as well as the 615s and are much more competitive pace wise with the other top 200 tread wears.

Re: Hpde tire

the falken above or hankook RS4. Bonus points is they both mostly work in the went, at least better than a NT01 or RA-1. Potential new contender is the new continental extreme contact force, but you'll be one of the first to use it if you get it. Supposed to be targeting RS4 wear but better pace (no...

Re: Video Thread - Palmer clockwise (Remlap)

I made some early mistakes on the 2nd lap, so I backed off to save tire temp for the third one (and I knew the first lap was decent). I don't know if this is good strategy or not, this was my first TT. The advice I always give for time trials – Don't think about laps. Execute each corner to the bes...

Re: 2021 classing sheet?

You could try LibreOffice, which is a free open source alternative to MS Office. https://www.libreoffice.org/ I haven't tried editing the classing sheets with it, but it should work. You'll probably just have to loosen the default security settings to allow the Excel macros to run. Some of the drop...

Re: First track tires

re71r are still great. I'd consider trying the newer rt660 now too. They're cheaper than basically everything else in the class (NT01, r888r, re71r, etc. Yes I know the first two are more track dedicated that don't overheat as well). https://grassrootsmotorsports.com/articles/falken-azenis-rt-660-ti...

If joncowen doesn't take them, I will. Likewise, don't have use for the wheels, the lug pattern and offsets are incorrect.

Re: Palmer Motorsports Open Track May 29th

Any idea what "Experienced" drivers means? I've got ~14 track days under my belt (2 at Palmer), but am not a licensed COM driver. Would I be allowed to run?
