Default My slow *** at the track tues. Bald azenis, 3rd place



Hopefully that works, anyway, barely any tread left and zero grip, lost to the nc miata and vette who only ran 73sec laps...



edit: thanks braineack for embedding the video cause i'm too lazy to use tags

Where's the sound? What's up with your hood? Who was driving the NC?

Lazy, ya but more importantly posting from my blackberry at lunch, thanks all the same mate.

Sound should be there, works for me. The nc driver is Kat Cho Choy or something like that, he consistantly runs 73-74's in his stock nc, which is quite good really.

What's wrong with my hood??

The perspective makes it look like it doesn't fit.

There is SOME sound, but you can't barely hear the car or the tires squealing ... very muted.

Ya I'll have to ask what's the deal with the low sound. And the tires didn't squeal to loudly, they are basiclly hockey pucks at that time...Good thing I have two sets for the next event!

I've read that the azenis arent very good when they get hot. How about getting some hoosiers on 13x10's and kicking everyone's ***.

Small track? Absolutely, its a kart track but its all we have around here unfortuneatly:(

I run in street tire class so ra1's are out of the question, but I do keep a set at home just incase I feel like going faster.

The azenis seem to treat me well as I'm capped at 200treadware for street classing, not much better, maybe the hankooks but they r hard to get right now. Yes when azenis get hot they get greasy fortuneately they don't get to hot to fast.

I had the first taste of how fast evo's can be at the track...Buddy bought a 9 with cams,tbe,ecu and something else anyways he was wearing 275 nt-01's...HOLY GRIP BATMAN!!He ran a 69, which was only bettered by the fc racecar which turned a 67 setting a new lap record. I think I want one of those next, he said it was effortless compared to the ITR

Next event will be Sept 20 and its a full day race so I should get some good video there and be a lot faster with my new tires.
