Those seats are for someone my size..anyways.

Are you going to hit up any trackdays? There were 2 different threads on SPA, I dont know how you could have missed them.

I will post up more trackdays soon..

Yeah..I have a set of 888's in the garage. I will be on them at Weeze Airfield.

I should be getting some more slicks next month.

do you like the 888's? any bad side of the tires? wet traction probly sucks though huh? look at the BFG's slicks they look nice but think it maybe to much tire for a subaru

The 888's are good for rough surfaces and longevity...so the Ring and Airports are good.

Now when it comes to real tracks I stick to my Michelin Slicks. As you can see in that short clip jorg posted.

(I have a set of yoko slicks that you can try out for $400 if you want) You should get two track days out of them.
