Curse you and informing me of another LeMons legal tire........now I have to research Rival vs. Dunlop vs. Falken!

You want "Inexpensive" and "140 Treadwear" look for "Federal 595 RS-R".

No, I need inexpensive and 190 tread wear...the BFG qualifies.

We've been running Falken Azenis RT615K's in 205/50 15...wouldn't mind wider tires in the back.

I've been eyeing the BFG Rival, myself. Have you read Andy Hollis' reviews?

Here's the "old" reviews: http://www.facebook.com/notes/hollis-racing/street-touring-and-track-day-tire-faq-utqg-140/245008598916447

And what he sez about the "new crop" of ST-ish tires: http://www.facebook.com/notes/hollis-racing/street-tire-faq-part-ii2013/409412972476008

And input to this thread about 3/4 the way through it: http://www.sccaforums.com/forums/forumid/23/threadid/440692/scope/posts



Oh - and for some reason, both here at work, AND at home - all I see is empty boxes and those lil' red "X's" for all your pictarz (here and on the SS forums with both Internut Exploder and FrierFox).

Yes, found that today.

Pictures are hosted on Facebook. Perhaps that is the problem.

I must say, this car is amazing. Considering it is basically stock it performs remarkably well. After all we are only in Prepared class due to our wheels being too far from stock spec ( 6.5" width) yet this thing just kicks arse. No understeer, loads of traction, plenty of power, narrow enough, short enough and fast enough. Incredible. It feels like cheating.

Detroit SCCA did another stellar job putting on the event based around a twin dirt oval in mid-Michigan. Needless to say we don't just go around the oval. See the video for a ride on course with my fellow driver Scott Harvey. (yes, he beat me)




Detroit Rallycross 84 Porsche 911 - YouTube


The challenge of this event was all about changing course conditions. With temperatures in the 20s all day were were greeted by frozen dirt for the most part. This had the consitency of sandpaper making for a very fast but twisty course. Except if the sun came out whereby the top 1/4" of surface would change almost instantly to liquid soap and prove a devil to drive on. This happened to me for my last two runs of the day resulting in them being a full 10 seconds slower than my previous runs. Never-the-less we came out in 1st and 2nd place again beating another couple of Porsches, these being 944s.




Some pictures at speed. It goes "all right" doesn't it?









There's supposed to be some helicopter-cam footage of the car too. Hopefully I can snag that soon.

It wasn't all roses though, there were a few casualties. This is what happens to a Porsche fog light when it hits a frozen solid traffic cone at 40mph:




and somehow my skinny tires on 35 offset wheels maaged to contact the fender lip and bend it down. No big deal but what's going to happen when we lower it on 205s?



The new Corbeau seat and Momo steering wheel were excellent but we did have to remove the seat cushion to stop our helmets banging on the roof. Need to figure out how to lower it before the next outing.



Only rally guys would find eating lunch outside at 20F fun.







Next RallyCross is March 10th but we might get an opportunity to do some ice racing this weekend. Let's hope the weather cooperates.

Took these off today




and put these on




because I'm hoping for sloppy, muddy conditions in tomorrow's RallyCross. Hope I'm right.

All loaded up and ready

Another successful RallyCross for the Carrera. I finished second and Scott won, again in Prepared Rear class up against tow gentlemen in a 944. Not oly that Scott managed the fastest RWD run of the day and was only beaten overall by a Toyota with an All-Trac swap running in Modified AWD. Quite amazing for a 30 year old RWD vehicle with it's engine in the wrong place.

It was perfect conditions for our Yokohama snow and mud tires.



Here's the pictures and videos:

Pulled the passenger seat and started working the various heating and ventilation issues the car has.





Had my freind Ed do a PS mock-up of the new livery too.
