I only ask to spark your interest in researching them. Apparently a few Z06 guys went from R6's to the Michelin slick and cut a considerable amount of time. I'd imagine they are pretty damn expensive though.Guess I don't have a take other than for a DOT tire I've thought the Hoosier R6 were the stickiest. Don't know about wear (yet), but my understanding is they don't heat cycle out (get hard/get greasy) like my 888's do/did and other similar tires do. Have not researched the Michelins and don't know anything about them other than I run the Super Sports on my car as my rain tire. They are great for the damp/wet conditions. Scared the piss out of a Bimmer instructor (didn't want to ride with me after a few laps), with those tires in the wet.
BTW, I'm not finding it very hard to get my setup to clear. Not much more than a full roll and a little bit of pounding... The stresses on the suspension and tires, once I get it on the track at speed/G's, may prove me wrong.
Just watched a Formula 1 Grand Prix race and they had to run one set of Michelin yellows. They said they would last six to eight laps! The "whites", IIRC, lasted over 20 laps.I'd imagine they are pretty damn expensive though.
That's a great lap time. Any videos to share?Chris Rallo, an instructor/sometimes racer, turned conservative 2:09's at Watkins Glen and that was with the car having some minor alignment and braking issues to be fixed.
Yes, but just not yet. I have to get them edited and up. I am escargod on YouTube. I go by my name now on YouTube. Glyn Churchman. I have quite a few videos up at this point, including Palmer.That's a great lap time. Any videos to share?

Not that often. Did two days with Track Daze and two with SCDA, back-to-back.How often are u at njmp. Haven't seen the car there before.
Sorry for the late reply. It's a NASA event. I'm also going to be at Lime Rock on the 19th, with SCDA.^^ what event is at the Glen 9/27? I could use a track day, I'm in Binghamton.
I am having lots of issues. Some issues are easy to resolve while others, like my ride height, are not.keep us updated on the mcs setup. I'm thinking of getting those
