Prep? I'm already on day 15 of the season...

On a related note if anyone's looking for track wheels for the season, I have a set of used 18" Advan TCiii's for sale. Will post something up in the classifieds at some point in the next couple of weeks, but please reach out if you're interested.

WTH! You can't get rid of the TCIII. Those look amazing on your car! 15th track day, eh? Jaypod and I are planning an epic road trip from NJ down to Barber since ED ain't looking like its gonna happen. Way better than 15 track days, especially knowing what car we're gonna use!

LOL - for a "nominal" fee, I'm sure I could be convinced into making that happen! I actually thought about doing that - pick it up April 5th and drive down to Barber - but couldn't get away from work that week (not to mention the 2000 miles that'd be put on the car).

Yeah, TCIII do look great but I prefer the OEM ones for street use so they're just going to sit in the garage and its probably better that someone else gets use out of them.

Sitting in the garage? Since my GT3 is delayed, I will be tracking your GT3 extensively. What are you going to drive at the track?

We should all just go to a frozen lake and start racing.

Good call on the clear bra, mine took a beating driving up to and back from CMP last year…..but it was worth it.

Amen to that, still no end in sight to cold weather

haha that is the EXACT reason I'm going for more coverage. I had a massive bug killstreak going & solid amount of rubber stuck on there from my trip to CMP last year. Still worth it

Most of mine came from our "spirited" drive back home.

My mistake, I totally forgot that you were goign to "break" my new car in for me before its safe for me to drive. That's okay, I still have some good rubber left on my other wheels with PSS so those will last until (if) your GT3 arrives.

you make a valid point! There's a very nicely spec'd one that one of the dealers just listed with 28000 more kms than mine and no discount for that kind of mileage. How many tracks can I squeeze in between Jersey and Burmingham over 5 days?

You can be my co-driver for one lap of america! but that's only gonna add about 3,300 miles. It's about time some one gives Leh Keen a challenge!
