Default I learned something today

Today's lesson: If you go to the strip with 205 50 15 KDW2's at 32 psi on 8" wheels, you will smoke them through 4th!!

I guess the rad and soft top are on hold; 15x9 and 225 45 15 RS3s are needed!

stopped making the kdw2 in that size about 2 years ago it seems, I had bought a set of them on tirerack then months later they no longer sold them.
I liked them, wish they still had them in 205\50R15

Setup's in sig. Really it was lack of preparation and an overly excited driver with too much right foot. Launched too hard and used the throttle like an on/off switch. Got smoked by a BMW 135.
Didn't have a chance to run a second time. I was there to help support a DIYAutoTune.com sponsored car, not play with my own.

Funny tidbit. The car ahead of me was a brand new GTR with no license plate. Had an obviously fake temporary plate/dealer drive out tag with a bogus date. Looked like someone who worked at the dealer simply swiped it off the lot and kept hot lapping it.

Doesn't take much at a shitty strip that is notorious for pretty much no track prep and temps were in the 40's after overnight lows in the 20's
