So after two full sessions on these tires, CMP and then NJMP (lightening course) these tires are still ~60%. <br><br>CMP Day one started wet and these tires were great. Day turned sunny and track dried and these tires were great!<br>CMP Day two on a dry track and only once did I notice the tires getting a little slick from heat. Great braking and cornering! <br><br>NJMP on same tires a month later saw the same conditions only the days were reversed. Dry Saturday and wet starting off on Sunday. Tires were great!

Fellow 24 Hours of Lemons racers!!! These are the tires for you! These are the official tires of Team Speedycop and the Gang of Outlaws!

We run these tires on the Speedycop #132 Lancia Beta Scorpion/Toyota MR2 and pulled a 2:02 at Carolina Motorsports Park on the long course. Anyone who runs East Coast Lemons knows CMP is where brakes and tires go to die and after 14 hours of track time we have over 50% tire left. Temps were low 60's to mid 70's and had light rain a few times on Saturday. Tons of grip even when the track was a bit wet. All we did was rotate tires side to side (it was dry Sunday so no problems). We are gonna flip the tires on the rim and run them again at New Jersey Motorsport Park.

Make sure you keep track of tire pressure as your tire temp increases!!!

We used to run the Falken 615 but they wore to fast and got a little slick with heat.
