    Just get an ‘R’ spec tyre mate. You’ll be amazed with the difference/improvement in grip.

    Yep, I dropped my time by nearly 5 seconds at QR .......... but I was running TRX tyres so anything other than wooden tyres would have been an improvement

    You're correct.

    I bought Toyo R888s for track use and was staggered at the difference.

    On a track, it actually does become a safety issue. You will outdrive the suspension/roadholding on normal road tyres.

    R spec tyres allow you to fully exploit the ontrack capability, pace and speed in much greater safety.

    Awesome! I remember in the dark ages that my track tyres were positively dangerous in the wet.... Had some very scary moments.

    Hoosiers?

    888's are very good, except for standing water of course.

    Yep.... And A00RS

    Good to know, although with a TWI of 100, XWXs are sticky enough for me.

    I heard Hoosiers were terrible, i didn't think A008RS's were too bad from memory.

    The work I wanted done on the OHOS is now complete.
    It’s got new front M sport suspension, new rear brakes, new wheels and tyres, plus all the mechanical work I’ve done (plugs, filters etc.)
    With all that and a transmission service and basic service, I’m $5k all in, including buying the car!
    It drives really nicely now, and my supervisors love riding in it. :D

    Happy days! :)
