Glad too see some real testing on the AR-1. Have you decided on a new brand name for gt86 parts or is this the start of the Super86 brand?

Bit more data on the tires: https://www.ft86club.com/forums/show...131052&page=12
We'll do a dedicated test day on stickers withn Vegas next week.

No plans for a new brand. 949 Racing is all platforms, wheels primarily. Supermiata is just Miata bits. Xida is its own brand. We're a small company. Adding another website and managing another brand is more than we have resources for. Beyond that, we are still focused on the NA/NB parts-wise. Just a few forays
outside of that platform for Xidas.

Can confirm, car is a total blast to drive. So, so easy, rotates freely but doesn't over-rotate. Loves to just take a set in a mild 4-wheel slide with the steering wheel almost straight and the throttle planted. Nirvana.

Xida testing at Streets of Willow a few weeks ago. 1:23.475 CCW. Apparently it's a new N/A 86 lap record by about 4 seconds. We were working through spring combos for the Street spring pack and Race spring pack. Me driving.

Another track record during testing of Xida prototypes, this in final production configuration. Overall track record for an 86 with any engine or tire for this track configuration.
Sonny driving.
