Good advice--last season I first drove on my NT01s during an event at Lime Rock. Their very first miles were those initial morning track sessions. I thought I had made a horrible mistake--the tires were greasy, wobbly and terrifying. I wasn't thinking about the mold separation compound that needs to wear off first. By the afternoon they were great. So don't freak out if they feel terrible initially.
