I just went from Ad08's on 19" wheels to NTO1's on 18" wheels. Took some getting used to, but the grip is tremendous. I've found that the NT01's are much more sensitive to air pressures and temps than any of the tires I've run before. However, these are the most aggressive tire I've driven on thus far.

yeah i psyched for it. need to get at least one more good dry day on my ad08s in before i try these out. havent had one since switching to my camber plates and more aggressive alignment. want to get baseline laps before i go hot lapping these bad boys.

If your doing things right the car won't be oversteering or understeering. If you press to hard and force your entry it will understeer, or force your exit with the throttle you will oversteer. I imagine I will have to try much harder to get out of sorts in the dry now!
