last 2 events have been in heavy rain. They are THE tire for those situations, but i would like to see how they do in dry conditions. Mountain road drives tell me there is more grip, but the limit is a sharp drop off instead of a progressive limit like the F1's.how are the PSS's holding up in your events?
good to hear about the rain performance (a must know in the PNW)! Keep me posted about the dry performance!last 2 events have been in heavy rain.

I know that. It's like I said, I've been dragging my feet on going to a 17 inch setup. A few people have said I look more stable and have more confidence than I did last year on these than the RE-11A's I had, plus one guy that I use as my reference point who is just blistering fast my time gap to him is dropping. This last event was humbling. This route was a very very researched one for a specific reason and its paying off, and I'm having a blast with them.Learning how to go fast on tires that aren't as sticky is a good thing.
BTW - you know they are 300TW, right? A 200 is something like a Direzza or RS-3.
Stock springs? Also what do you think of the b6's? And why those vs the b8's?I keep meaning to post in this thread, and not thinking about it until I'm on a tablet, and that's too much work. I've bolded the stuff that stands out as a little different. YR/Model: 2013 ST1, Tuxedo Black, build date of February '13. Wheels: 17x8 OZ Moda MD-10s in uninteresting, dark gray. Tires: Bridgestone RE-71R 245/45-17 Pressures: 38-40F 50R Sway Bar: Rear Stranoparts triple adjustable at full stiff Sway Bar End Links: Steeda adjustable Shocks/Struts: custom valved Bilstein B6s with a bunch of low speed force in them Exhaust: Stock Brake Pads: Stock Brake Fluid: Stock Oil: Amsoil Signature Series 5W30 + Fram Ultra Super Duper filter Air filter: Stock Motorcraft Alignment: 0 toe front and rear. I don't remember the camber, because we're pretty much stuck with whatever it is. It was in the low 1.x range front, and the rear I paid no attention to. :lol: The 245-45-17 tires are not ideal and were picked when 255-40-17s were impossible to find. I needed something for Blytheville, and needed them fast, so it was these or 245-40-17. I figured this car hardly needs any acceleration help from a short tire, so I got the taller one. I drive to and from events on them. I've done 7 events in the car, with last weekend being 6 and 7. I finally had a good weekend in it, finishing 10th overall in the PAX standings both days. It was at that event that I took rear pressures up to 50. I'm going to Nationals this year, first time since 2010. Can't wait.
