Tires decision has been made
Kumho ECSTA V730 Tires 275/35/18
And it came down to price 1000 vs 1800 for others.
Going to have them heat treated too, see if that make a difference.

$216/ea on tire rack. That’s a screaming deal. Even cheaper than the federal 595rs-pros.

Curious to see how those stand up to the RT660. I expect they’d be a slower tire but last longer

I see why you picked that tire! Seems great for the price. I’ll be keeping those in mind for the future.

First Track event of this year at AMP with Atlanta Driving Society (47 laps were done)
Car has been corner balance, new transmission and clutch, different alignment.
It felt good, but My best was only 1.39.86 off my personal Best by 3.47 seconds. Why I do not know.
The track was green since it had rained the past two days. Everyone was saying tires were not gripping.
Or simply that I am a year older I am slower . Fun yes, learning still.
Did find out that turns 9-11 have a lot of compression on the car, which resulted in some tire rub. (time to roll the front fenders)
New setup felt good, tire wear was even across all 4 tires. Starting pressure for now on will be Front 32 / Rear 29, which
will get me to front 36/ Rear 34. Also simply learn to relax and drive and have fun.

Also since it has been a while, forgot to get gas on my lunch hour to make sure I finished the day.
Just funny with a 19 gallon tank, you need to get gas to finish the day.
Car was getting 8 mpg, when your on it, it eats

Enjoy

Yesterday, feeling the effects of being 70, spent yesterday doing a post track inspection on the brakes and tires. Good news, is tires wore evenly, (YES), brake pad wear was good about 1 mm. There at 7mm have a few hours left in them. Car look over all good from the track days.

I actually did a 20 minute session on 4/19 Wednesday Night. turned a 1.39.64 a bit better

Here is the video

No more track until May 31st, so it will be sim practice time

New set of tires for sometime this year...
275/35/18 KUMHO ECSTA V730
they have been heat treated also...
not sure when they will go on -- Falken's are about half gone..
In Grassroots Motorsport, they compared very favorable to the Falkens, but were 600 dollars cheaper at the time. So I figure I give them a try...
