The time it takes me to change my oil (including cleaning up the drain pan and such) is worth more than $20. Even if oil were free I wouldn't do it every track day.

From some reviews I've read, the AR1 has more grip than NT01/RC1, but is much heavier. So it suffers on the straights, but appears to still be a few tenths faster overall, generally.

Great advice above. I don't have a ton more experience than you do, but I would suggest two possible tweaks that could help you in terms of controls. First, I would try shifting your hands down to...

+1; definitely not enough for a fast driver. You might do alright with something more like 12/10 or even higher, but you're still going to be changing front pads pretty often; you'll have much more...

It would actually be really nice to have a tire that just gets slower as it wears out, rather than the situation with the RE71R where after ~3 days you're wondering whether you could cram in another...

Since that other thread is getting a bunch of love, I figured it wouldn't hurt to plug the search engine I built: https://www.autotempest.com. Started as a hobby project, but it slowly morphed into...

I have Sparco Pro 2000s in mine; the driver's seat is on sliders, so I could drop it another inch without those—possibly more with a different mount. (Mine's PCI.) Anyway, I'm 5'8" and with the...
