Those KDWs are USELESS on the track. They will chunk faster than a shitty cookie.

At 220whp, if I am not pointed dead straight, full throttle in 2nd gear results in wheelspin and a lot of tail-out action.

you should run hoosier a6's on the street. Think of all the grip you'll have on the way to the grocery store.

azenis or r-comps...I don't see any logic in using another tire but possibly the rs2...but isn't it more prone to over-heating than the azenis?

those look nice. I didn't know that they made them in a non CR-style offset!

Not from experience or anything but people say the azenis overheat and get greasy on the track while the RS2s aren't as bad. Sounds like savington liked the NT01s and people say the RA1s get into their happy place once they get some heat in them and they just stay there.
