    GT350 Track Tire Options

    Funny you bring up A052, I had a buddy go off track with those that weekend. They get real sketchy after the 2nd or 3rd hot lap or so

    GT350 Track Tire Options

    Lateral grip was mostly fine; it was more longitudinal grip under braking. I'm wondering if the pressures have a lot to do with it, or if I'm simply expecting too much from a 200tw endurance tire comparing it to an NT01As for PSI, they said 28-32 lbs depending on weight. I assumed 33-34 as...

    GT350 Track Tire Options

    Some updates on my second track day with the Continental ExtremeContact Force. I took them to Sonoma, and I think my opinions on them have changed. Compared to my PB, I was roughly 2 seconds off pace (best that day was 1:56 vs PB of 1:54 with NT01's). The tire has noticeably less grip than the...

    Any sign of these heat cycling out? I just got myself a set of 295/30r19's and they were phenomenal! I'm wondering how many heat cycles we should be expecting out of these :)

    EBC Brakes Pad Giveaway - December

    Taking turns dogfighting with @byronj at Sonoma Raceway was pretty fun! But I think the most fun memories are watching unsuspecting passengers get shocked when they realize Mustang's can actually corner 😂

    Tire Choice: NT01 vs Supercar 3 (non R)?

    I currently run the NT01s in 305/35r18 (square). They're a great tire, and they're getting faster as they wear down into a slick!I picked up a set of 19x11's recently, and am looking for a set of 305s for these. How do the GY Supercar 3 (non R's) compare? Are they grippier than the NT01s?I...

    Good call, I think I will start off with changing it every other oil change, with my oil change intervals being 3-4 track days + a thousand or so street [email protected] Pemberton , How often do suggest changing MT82 fluids? I'm running BG SynchroShift II, I was thinking probably twice a year...

    Did you use the NS oil or the oil with the friction modifier? I'm running RL 75w110 right now (with friction modifier), and I don't notice any noise. I was planning on switching to 140 though...
