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...

Re: Set of RE71R Lightly Used 245/40/17

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?

Re: Federal Tires

Looks like the Swedish Cup is back in play! I'll do my best, maybe I'll be un-opposed this year like I would have been last year. Planned on running a TT at NHMS too but had a really bad alignment slip so skipped the Sunday. If the "saabaru" even counts :-D Also, ended up with 235/40/17 AR1s. Shoul...

Re: Federal Tires

I ran Nankang AR1s as well and i re...
