Ah yes, that makes sense based on how the brake power just cuts out. Probably was too busy thinking about an escape route and pumping the brake pedal to remember downshifting.
Pics or it didn't happen!So I just bought a 2005 g35 6 speed. It has lsd which is awesome! A little on the heavy side but still handles pretty good I plan on putting stiffer suspension on it
Lot's of questions still open on the incident. Why didn't he down shift to try to bleed off speed? Did he have the E brake engaged? Why didn't he go right and stay on the track property instead of taking the right that took him through the gate?Why didn't that guy in the Corvette use the parking brake to stop him from coasting?
You'll be amazed at the grip level they give. If the Rival S and Kumho V720 weren't showing close comparable results in tires tests I would have expected them to go on the restricted or banned list.I can't keep up with the guys running RE-71R's. Later this month though...
Your tires in this video seem to be screaming for dear mercy, so I bet the RE-71s will make a huge difference in your times.
Sounds super fun. Would love to see some video of the PDX afterward.I'm signed up to the Sunday autocross and on the Friday prior they're holding a PDX on the full IMSA road course which I'm now qualified to run and signed up for.
What was the weather (temperature) like? If it was cool/cold out and you weren't getting the purple crack rollers up to optimum temps, they're not any stickier than street tires. Just a thought....Forgot to post this here, oops.

Switched to the Hoosiers (R6) and got a hair faster - but not on "Hoosier level" of speed, at all. I think that's what is bumming me out. My best lap was on Sunday morning, at a 1:29.6. That's still kind of a street tire time.
