My point was the g2 were not cheap so I bought something else
I know, I was just lamenting I wish I had other less expensive options for the 18”
Although we hit rain today coming back from the wife’s Dr appointment and man what a difference the G2s made when driving in the rain! Waaaayyy better😊

I always felt that the Nittos were reasonably priced.

I've only had 1 set of Yokohamas and they would never stay in balance. Discount Tire even replaced them and the next set did the same thing.

Same here. Went back to Nittos after 3 sets replaced for free by Discount.

Two days ago when it was 59 degs I took it for a bath. Just a quick spray off, no brush, mitt or anything other than HP soap, rinse and spot free rinse with a blow dry on my way out.

Speaking of tires. You guys have it easy, you only need two rear tires to drag race.

The Cat looks the same but is begging for rubber! I need four racing tires and two new rear street tires. All my tires are now four seasons old, @Jon-MooredPerformanceLLC made it so it is light years worse for tire spin now. Thanks buddy, I asked for it!

Even with all my rear threads looking good because i have been a good boy, they just don't stick any longer. So WTF, now that some chineje shit has ruined our world the past three years, getting rubber sucks!! Discount Tire only can find big Pirelli race tires and Tire Rack can only find Michelin tires? To say they are expensive is an understatement!

So let us start with some street rears. How does $690.99 each sound? Discount tire can find some 4S's in the 345/30, but holy shit!

Now for the four race tires. Holy shit don't apply, this is goofy. 335/30's $650-685/each those are the little units for the front to wear! Want to get 345/30's on the rear, sure; $763.90! And those are some weird shit Michelin has come-up with that talk to you or something. Not happening.

So, I am probably going to return to my Italian roots, and go with Discount Tire and try some of those fancy PZero Trofeo-R units. The 345/30 is a reasonable $591, and the little front 335's are a measly $588 each. What a bargain, huh? After a 5% ex-military discount, the four won't be too bad. I'll probably order up the new Michelin PS4S rears, because i remember attempting to use my existing rears at the track last October one day. Shit, even after numerous laps, and plenty of heat, anything under 100 mph was a joke. The damn thing behaves about like it would on a snow covered road!

I think you've tried the R888r's in the past...any interest in checking them out again? I actually liked the old R888's better on track (well speaking Viper anyway).

Good for you. I don’t mind the PZ4 PZero’s. I have the four that came with the car looking brand new on my stock fugly black wheels. Used for rain or for non-serious sessions on the track, and out of town trips or if I want the car to be more common looking when it leaves my garage (no shiny chrome custom wheels). There was not really any difference when compared with the PS4S rears on the track last October. They both would not get traction, the lap times were not impressive. Those big old PS4S rollers just don’t seem to have any more grip than an old skinny 305/35 now. They may have some value for an early spring smoke show :unsure::unsure:

I've tweaked the right rear exhaust somehow after just catching the corner of a curb with the RR tire. I've had it on a lift, still cannot find where the exhaust is hitting the floor (I feel the vibrations in my seatbelt now and it sounds different in the car). I checked alignment of the exhaust tips, not issues. I put the car on a lift and walked around comparing the right and left sides around the resonator where it "hit", can't find anything different between the two sides. I know something is moved the system close to sheet metal to pass along those vibrations but cannot find anything indicating something has moved. Go figure.

Is one of the hangers tweaked in such a way that the isolator rubber is allowing the hanger to touch metal to metal instead of only through the isolator?

Took the load off. Dropped the wheels/tires to the floor today. Charged the battery. After a trickle charger took out an “aftermarket” control board last year, no trickle chargers. They are out on the bike. About once a month, it takes 10–15 seconds. The big charger lays a little charge into it and done, full green. Unplugged it, threw down the trunk, commanded the QuickJacks back up to full height. In a couple of weeks it will be time to start detailing it and maybe twisting some bolts to look for the guilty bushings that squeak.

Looking forward to its first upgrade this year. Strange enough; getting the new V-Flanges for the exhaust couplings all welded up and aligned and putting the converters back on so I can misbehave and not have the next two cities hear it!! Then it will feel so good a few days before trailering it to RA in May to take the shit off and make it track ready including new rubber for the new road surface. That is going to be a smooth ride!!

A guy can dream on a winter day!
