We do not want your brake fluid to boil as you will have brake failure.
We recommend running at minimum a 300 treadwear tire. To be technical, treadwear isn’t important to look at but for general purposes, we do recommend anything lower than a 300. Brands include Michelin, Goodyear, Toyo, Dunlop, Bridgestone, Firestone, and Yokohama. If you have the driver skill, feel free to bring a set of R comps.Please do not attend this event with old tires, the track surface is not suited for older, heat-cycled tires and you will be fighting for grip the entire time.We will help you with tire pressures on the day of the event.
We recommend adding at least -2 degrees of camber to the front of your suspension. We do not want you to eat outer tires causing the tire to delaminate and ultimately end your day.Optional, you can add a total of -2 degrees to the rear as well.
