      How come I get no pics of my .:R like that? Did I make the photographers mad or was I driving too easily

      And as Mooney just said of course this is not a race, the Dragon is not a track, and we cannot / will not condone such behavior. Fun will be had, but we have to be safe for the masses. These lessons have been learned from a select few in the past events

      I'm with you bro.
      I pay way too much a month for my car to even try anything stupid.
      I have a good head on my shoulders but I also still know how to have fun.
      I'm not down with all those people who cross the double yellow through turns trying to prove something.
      I am a sport bike rider as well so I am all about technicality. Staying in my lines is my main concern.

      Didn't you crash the GTI the next day? Frankly your buddy was driving too crazy for me. I've got a career, wife and house to worry about. the Dragon isn't a race track.

      indeed. he was driving like an autobot on goofballs.

      for you cool-weather ToD veterans…
      Today’s cool weather (37° this AM) here in sunny Florida got me thinking…
      I used to run summer-only tires (140-160 treadwear) year-round.
      When I finally hung-up my autocross helmet (again), decided to go with a bit longer-lived tire: Bridgestone RE960.
      I have been very impressed with their level of performance.
      As they currently have less than 6k miles on them, these will still have plenty of life in them come ToD time.
      I have the OEM size, but they look narrow when compared to other like-sized offerings in summer-only tires.
      Since it will most likely be cool when we are at the ToD, wondering from the veterans how the Bridgestone RE960 tires might fare for the ToD.
      Also, for those who have run the more aggressive summer-only tires: How do they work when it is cold?
      Gone, but not forgotten: ’81 Audi 4000 5+5; ’84 Audi Coupé GT; ’02 GTI 1.8T; ’03 20th Anniversary GTI; ’04 R32

      On the Dragon:
      I have run the OEM F1's with great results.
      I have run new F1 A/S's with great results.
      I have run Nitto Invos with great results.
      This year I will be repeating on the Invos.
      What I have found is that the summers will be great, even in the cold - ONCE THEY WARM UP!!! Year 1 I had a sincere pucker moment when the first turn of a morning run (read like 40 or so degrees) was a little too quick for the not warmed up tires and ESP did some amazing magic (yep, I had ESP on for the first run of the day...) to get all 4 wheels back on pavement... That was the only issue I had, but my ass almost ripped a hole in my seat.
      The year that that happened we were staying at Topaco, which is just down the hill from the Deals Gap Motorcycle Resort, so we were a lot closer to the Dragon proper with less warm-up time. Once warmed up, everything was stellar all over again, but you need to be aware that they need that time.
      Where we are now, at Fontana Village, we are a few more miles from Dragon proper, but 28 is still PLENTY of fun, so you need to be mindful of that area as well.
      IMO - for the Dragon summers are the most fun, but you have to baby them for the first few minutes...

      How hard do you plan to be pushing it? Honestly, any higher quality OEM tire will be fine for most driving, especially once you learn their limits and respect that.
      Judge how hard you WANT to drive, then dress accordingly. Also know how your car and tires respond to wet; for example, the NT01s? Yeah, not so much in the wet.
      How restrictive is the R32s ESP/stability control? Is it annoyingly so, or fairly flexible? I've gotten used to running the Evo X in fully stabilized mode, and don't find it to be a hindrance.
