Looked like a handful in the morning. Also looked like the track was very dusty, in addition to being cold.

PM me. I'm always up for cheap tires

I'll post a separate thread with video and comments later... but in short they are fun to drive on, traction is lost in a snap, no noise whatsoever. My times were about the same as RS3.

Something not right about that. Perhaps it'll be faster after you track it some more.

Good driving. Who was this with? Looked pretty sloppy and sketchy (as a group) for a while.
