I'm glad my microphone worked long enough for everyone to hear my dog barking in the background.

You say that like there is anything else worth talking about.

I'm still cleaning the house so it's going to be a bit longer.

True. I want more stories about the thai dumpster I have school early in the morning, so maybe I'll humiliate you tomorrow instead of tonight.

They're fine, just a little boring and constricting from what we have been driving. Lots of grip though, I think fairly easy to drive. I was just getting used to how useless 2nd gear is when I stopped.

I'm trying to make a bunch of AI and CMC cars for us. Is the consensus that Toyo RA-1's are most similar to the Sport tire or the Race tire compounds?

Can you send a replay of a couple of quick-is laps? Or a setup

The S197 is too fast for it's class.

Fox body lacks a little grip, should I give it some power to compensate?

I would think that would make it worse. Try extra lightening or putting the power band higher up with a turbo or something.
