Well that was a hell of a read... Only took three days.

Anyway! Tires, I hear great things about the BFG SportComp 2 as a street tire. My friend has some and they seem to be decently better than the S. Drives I am running now (just the street tires, RE71-R for autox).

I have only ever heard good things about the dz102 from people who went to them after ever only driving on cheap all seasons...

So you'll likely be banned from the go kart track now?

Thanks for reading x_25! Dz102 may be good compared to chinese tires but they sucks compared to other stuff.
<br />
<br />Surprisingly they didn't care. Looked at it kinda confused and put me in another cart.

Theres not really much you could have done to cause that. That was going to fail that day no matter what. Those carts get beat harder than jared fogle's ***.

Autocross today went well. Only 2 seconds off a nationally competitive ASP Sti. Got beat by some miatas on Hoosiers.
<br />Need more gearing and torque. Rode the revlimiter on the slalom and bogged a bit after one of the sharp turns.

<p>Ok back to tires.</p><p>2 options.</p><p>1. Buy Federal 595s right now and hope I get them before sept 21st.</p><p>2. Say screw it and run the rs3s I have on right now until spring when I can buy more rs3s.</p><p>At auto-x today the rs3s were slippery, but also cold. They were very controllable at the limit, and I held a couple really long slides no problem.</p>

Option 3: Stop running events until you can use the money you save on tires that aren't bullshit. Lol. Sorry if that's brash but it's what I would do. 595 RSR is a **** tire.

<br />How long did you run the RSRs?

I have money. RS3s aren't available right now.
<br />I've heard some really good reviews about the 595 rs-r. What is **** about them?
<br />Its the internet, be as brash as you want. I like it hard

I wouldn't hesitate to run the rs3s I ran today again. The slip was incredibly controllable, they just didn't have a **** ton of grip. Keep in mind I'm comparing rs3s to z1*s at auto-x. Different levels of cold grip.

<br />Pretty sure that was a joke. And by pretty sure, I mean without a doubt.
