Re: Feb 17th test n tune

The lot was making gravel as we ran so our test n tune at BMS will help get it dialed all the way in, but being on full soft on rear compression was very edgy and going up 5 clicks of compression dropped 2.3 seconds and felt much better. I hope to set up the 2017 match tour course for the test n tu...

Re: Feb 17th test n tune

New oxygen sensors fixed my car. Hooray! Too late to sign up for the test and tune though. Boo!

Re: March 29-31 zMax Match Tour

I dunno. CCR gets 160+ entries for their regional events at zMax so they have a large population to draw on.

Re: Feb 17th test n tune

For a summer tire/autocross rain tire I have a set of ExtremeContact Sport 285/35/19 on 19x9.5 inch rims. They're currently about $250/tire at Tire Rack. For winter and general travel, I have a set of 245/45/19 ExtremeContact DWS 06 tires on the OEM 19x8.5 inch rims. That's the OEM tire size. They d...

Re: Feb 17th test n tune

Steve, The Rival S is a lot better in the wet than the original Rival, but it's still not very good. At last year's event when it was wet, the people who were going fast were on Continental ExtremeContact DW or Michelin Pilot Sport tires. Of course when it started to dry out, they didn't go any fast...

Re: Feb 17th test n tune

Looks like it's already hit the cap.
I only see 56 entries on MSR and the cap is 60. But it does seem likely that it will be full before I will know if my car is fixed.

Re: Feb 17th test n tune

If I can get my car fixed before the event fills up, I'll be there. I'm pretty sure I have a bad O2 sensor on bank 1. At least that's what the data indicates. I won't know for sure until it's replaced. Hopefully, that will be tomorrow or Wednesday at the latest.

Re: Grid workers

I can do grid. I should be at all the Bristol events. I'm less certain about Smokies.

Re: Spec tire for ssc

Fun to me is not committing about 12 hours to get stomped locally on PAX. :lol: Unless the tires are truly awful compared to Bridgestones, I'm not sure that will happen. A fully prepped SSC car looks to have a much improved suspension, lowered, stiffer springs, adjustable bars front and rear and ad...

Re: Spec tire for ssc

The biggest size they make is 315/30/18. The Falken in that size costs more than the BFG Rival S and more than the bigger 335/30/18 Rival S. The relatively few reviews aren't promising. They are a lot less expensive than the BFG Rival S 1.5 @ $169/tire and the Bridgestone RE-71R @ $160/tire in the 2...
