First hand experience - on the track they're not wearing any more than the RE71R did. Actually the RE was worse because if you overheated it at all tread started to disappear. Also if your car isn't...

I tested A052 vs the Rival S 1.5 this past weekend at BRP. Both tires are within the noise of each other. The Yok's are a lot more positive in their feel & feedback though.

My previous testing...

Falkens are fine on track, just don't have optimal grip. Not really much to say about them. If you ran the last generation of 200tw you'll know what to expect. Decent communication, feel, etc....

It's sad that people want to race cheap, fun and plentiful chassis with wide support and parts availability? Uh, ok.

That ruleset is a local one with little effort put in for balance. I'm willing...

Bruh, it's a local series with very little on the line. If you're expecting a book of rules and thick competition, well, this is probably not the droid.

Latest information says some other tire sizes are coming end of this month, early next. I think a proper roll out of all sizes will make it this year.

I do actually have rules, basically STR & 200tw so aero is off the table. Aside from the CR wing.

That's pretty significant. Hmm, wonder if they can get me into the 1:22 at Thunderhill West.

Any idea as to a delta between the tires? Trying to figure out if there is any additional time to be had by switching to the A052 for track.

With the rates you suggest and a connected F/R sway bar, the S2000 suspension doesn't travel enough in compression and droop to make use of any helper or tender spring in regular motion. You would...

That's the big thing he's missing too. The tender might only come into play when the unloaded side's travel is beyond what normal spring length will give you in droop. Not only that, but it still has...

I have helpers on my ProParts/TCKline Koni setup. The only reason for this was jacking the car up/down. I change tires a lot and really don't want to be bothered with that noise or any issues with...

It is being remolded to 7/32 and being offered in more sizes to meet SCCA rules. So yes, the new ones are legal. Looks like DOT numbers will determine that. TR has delivery on them in a few days.
