Have around 400 miles on the car since installing it. As mentioned, I think that it is a perfect match for the car. Haven't got together with Shawn Fogg yet, but it is on the list. It's a keeper. Thinking of modifying, selling my stock one.

I know I have hit mine at least as hard as Al.
Sue and I even did a Solo School on the Pilot Sports and haven't seen anything like that!
There has to be something more to it than just a hard launch.

BTW, tell Al I moved the top switch up to the front of the console. Only took about a half hour to do. Now both cars are the same.

Damn! I've seen hundreds of posts and pics over the years, but the pic of Al's tire made me gasp! Any ideas why this happened, besides the obvious high torque?

Is the tire being replaced under warranty? That's a Mich Pilot Sport, right?
