Why are you tired?
Those were the first tire I used when I first got into autox. Boy are they sticky.
We cleaned out the inventory of magical 195/50/15 Toyo R1Rs at the semi-local tire shop, so now we're ready for the coming season. We got a set of shaved tires mounted on 15x7.5 6UL wheels, and a set of full-treads that'll go on our RPF1 once I get the last couple of runs out of last year's set on those. The full-tread tires will be for what little daily driving our Miata does as well as serving as rain tires and something to use for lower-key events like BMWCCA.
Test fitting the 6ULs
The inventory taking up valuable dining room space (the house smells like a tire shop! Yummy!)
Hope everyone else's off-season prep is coming along nicely.
It's a pun
My off-season prep sucks. Miata + formerly (poorly) repaired crank keyway issue discovered on the way to replace the crank seal. Solution: forget the crank seal, re-do the poor "fix" of the previous owner, and hope the cam seals were responsible for the majority of the leak. Dreaming that I can make it through the majority of this season until I have time to deal with the crank properly. We'll see how that goes.
Fortunately, our primary autocrosser is a '93 so we don't have to worry about the SNC issue. However, the backup '90 (170K miles) is not so lucky. I told the wife that if the SNC problem shows up on that car, I'm going to go to FM and order up a LSx. She just rolls her eyes at the thought.
