Tonight.

Pirelli Tire Tech will be from 5pm till 7pm.This is an opportunity to find out the truth about tires, have your questions answered and a chance for some great give prizes too. Probably not BBK Duncan.

Info session about this year’s Advanced Driving Schools. Some of the clubs instructors will be on hand to talk to about what is involved and how the schools work. Great chance for first time students to come and see what our schools are about, and for experienced students to talk about the line up of tracks we are visiting this summer.Talk with Instructors will be from 7pm till 9pm.

Pizza dinner served at 7pm.

Karting at 7PM

A Sunday nightCannot make it with this little notice!The electric karts there suck the big one by the way!We ran an Enduro there a few years ago and they would loose all their power well before the 15 minute driver changes.Big & heavy compared to the indoor karts that I am used to,but they did have enough torque to spin up the tires out of the hairpin.

Not a very good selection of sizing in 18".Any idea of pricing?

More info here.

Thanks for the info! Yeah - a little more selection in sizes might have been nice.

So I am guessing you are not going to put these on the RAC's so what's next PS2's or PSC's?

I am assuming at least as much as the P Zero Corsa which were like $800 a tire for 19" sizing + taxes. Tire rack was about $2800 US which included shipping, brokerage & taxes so significantly better than buying here. The PSC's were about $500 cheaper by buying here than tire rack last year

Might get away with P Zero Trofeo 265/35ZR19 front & 285/35ZR19 rear but pretty pricey. May just go with PS2's 255/35ZR19 front & 275/35ZR19 rear but still not decided. The PSC's currently on the 19's still have a lot of wear left. I think I need to go 10mm wider front & rear since the Rac's are 1/2" wider for the tires to look decent on the rims

Nothing else of interest that caught my eye. I went for the tire tech.

That would be a good setup and maintain the same oem like stagger. I went with the 255's on the front (19x9), but opted for 295's on the rear (19x10.5). I went with PS2's.

Hurry up and get them on - people want to see them - you teased us by bringing one in a box to a meet!
