Did they release a price?

Just found your post on their FB. 3/28 is too late for me too. Oh well, maybe next time.

My consolation: Costco is doing $70 of a set of Bridgestones this month. RE-71R here I come!
Just realized you are local. What events are you doing soon.

I'm planning on doing all the Willamette Motor Club events here in Salem. First race is the 20th. Hoping to do some other events as well, I met a couple people last year that did the Emerald Empire Sports Car Club events in Eugene so might do a couple of those.

I'd like to do the Dallesport event at least once, but that is a bit far away. I was also hoping to go to a track day at PIR this summer, but that probably isn't in the cards. By the time I get my car track-ready it will be pretty close to the due date of my second kid.

I've heard mixed reviews of the Portland autocrosses. You planning on some events?

I do mostly track days. I dabble in auto-x but its not as fun to me.

Come visit the PDX Lounge on cr.net. Thats where most local chat happens.

Typically six weeks-ish after we test. Print mag lead times have not improved much in decades. Also depends on how the monthly mag assembly cycle works out relative to test dates.

Any plans to test these against the popular rival s 225 on 9's combo? God I hope they are slower......hate to have to make the switch mid season.
