    $124 for my size 225-50-16 from TireRack. I bought mine in Canada for close to that amount.

    They will get plenty of miles in two weeks.
    Am I missing something? Why would you trade your msm for another??

    Mileage always an issue, I go through a set each year.

    No brainer then. Thge VR adds 10 ponies and it would be cheaper to just buy t b e seats.

    Cool, ya I'd like to get 200+, but that's going to require a bit more and while I still have it registered it would be more of a pain (hydra/injectors)

    3. Driving. Without the distraction of it being my first time at that event, my first hill climb ever, etc, I had a bit more brain power to dedicate to finding the right line and finding where I was losing time and PUSHING.

    There's more time out there with my car. But while my car is, for all intents and purposes, disposable (you don't put a car on track, ESPECIALLY not one lined by trees and rocks, that you can't walk away from), I much prefer rolling the car onto the trailer at the end of the weekend vs having to drag it up because I scattered it against a boulder. There's zero profit in this endeavor, and as such there are a few places where I know I leave time each run, and refuse to push too much harder because the consequences of and error there are far too great.
    I bet tightening the loose nut behind the wheel was most of it!

    I get the 'don't push too hard' bit. Driving in Lemons I know that I leave time on every lap, especially when traffic is involved. But stuffing the car into a wall ruins everyone's weekend, and that's no good!


    Maturity is knowing that you were an idiot in the past. Common sense is trying to not be an idiot right now. Wisdom is knowing that you will still be an idiot in the future.

    It didn't hurt, knowing where it's more safe to push hard and where not to. But the differential made a huge difference in my right foot's ability to drag me up the hill lol

    If you watch my video from last year, with the longer diff, any tiny scrub of MPH took AGES to recover from. This year, it pulled SO much harder. The twofold difference there becomes a) I'm able to build more speed regardless, and b) scrubbing speed was not nearly as punishing on the clock.

    drove it to work and hurt some "muscle car guys" feelings... 3 lane road, 2013ish Challenger and mid 90's Mustang GT decide to do a little pull...

    both of their faces when the little red miata pulled on both... Priceless LOL

    Lulz. Awesome.

    My personal favorite was a sling-shot win over a 5.0 notchback at the drag strip... boost for the win!

    More setup pad work for the race caaa.

    This weekend I spent some time turning larger bits of metal into subsequently smaller pieces. Tonight I'm going in the opposite direction and turning small bits of metal into subsequently larger parts.

    I'm definitely no pro, but there is something very satisfying about doing "production" type work. Lots of seat time on the tools, where you just a pile of parts and you'll be done once you run out of parts to glue together, and you can just zen out behind the hood or face shield.
