Damn, I misread, I thought you said you saw it. I assumed you were in PC. My eyes are fading.

If you check the Ramble On Thread, you will see a little more information. Steve posted about it last Friday.

How the gay tires working? Typical 2-3 laps until they're to temp. You must have 8" 6uls

Yes they are 8 inch. Gay tires worked fabulous! Thanks for asking!

They're also bad luck. They caused you to have your engine out and now I'm going to have to take mine out as well. I ended up with a couple of pieces broken on the hot side and a bit of an exhaust leak. The hot exhaust melted the stupid dipstick handle again and there is plastic down in my oil yet again . The engine is going to have to come out and I'm going to have to go through all of the oil passages. I guess I'll just have to put the forged rods in while while I've got it apart. But seriously thank you for the tires. They are a lot of fun.

Sebring fourth and final session on Saturday. Exhaust was broken underhood so the wastegate was propped wide open and was making zero to 1 psi on the straights. So no powah, but pretty darn good Continental 225s courtesy of GeneSplicer.


McLaren MP4-12CDEFG sighting on the track. Twice. Bastard.

Ken should follow you through 16-17-1 - or he was watching in his rear view. I can see the confusion on the black flag when you have a yellow, car(s) that appear disabled and the driver wave-by - it all adds up to me.

The head is off. 138k miles and some of it boosted on the track in hot temperatures and there is no sign of detonation or overheating. There is still factory crosshatch all the way up and down the cylinder bore. There is just a light touch of occasional carbon layering, which I expected.

My tune must be nice and safe.
