Re: Can anyone comment on the Nitto NT05 or any other 200 TW tire?

I have to agree with "200 TW LMAO".

That's exactly what I was thinking every time I checked Bradley's Rivals for texture and tackyness.

Re: Can anyone comment on the Nitto NT05 or any other 200 TW tire?

They aren't bad - very cost effective for 17"/275 + 17"/315 200TW tires. The compound is not as "tacky" as the Rivals, and tends to overheat + start washing out after the 3rd aurocross run (I will spray them after the third run next year) - I got to keep tabs on the texture of th...

Re: Saturday Events

For those of us too stupid / sleep deprived to properly read a calendar, can we get some kind of general email blast and or announcement on the board that says "hey dumbass, this weekends race is on SATURDAY not Sunday" when we break our longstanding Sunday schedule in the future? Thanks....

Re: Event 9 check in

Tentatively in for sound or whatever.

Not in for rain (but sound won't be very important in the rain anyway).

Re: Nt555r's for autocross?

They're 100 treadwear, and the sidewalls of drag radials are not generally considered to be very suitable for autocross.

Re: Chilhowee Park

I thought the water barriers were only required for the "spectator" type charity events we were running there?

Or is a "spectator" charity event the only way we're getting back in there?
