ZL1. Not a dedicated track car but track capable. Nice handling. Heat soak shouldn't stop you at drag strip. Damn fast on track.

Plus then you can get the trailer from Lowes and take your Hoosier tires to the track like Orange Crush.

The quintessential "sports" car is the 911 with the ski rack. Remember those from the 80s!?

You're fine. Get the rack. I had one on my 84 Z28 because I loved to bike.

Anyone running 305/35/20s on the track on all four corners?

Check this out fellas. Pirelli R's in our size!

http://www.pirelli.com/tyre/ww/en/motorsport/sheet/pzero_trofeo_r.html

Looks like 295/35/20s might be the ticket!

Rubbing is my concern too. I'll be testing at Goodyear soon and will report back. Told them I won't buy if it rubs.

Hey there. The Hoosiers have a similar distinction like Goodyear, measured vs approved. Measured is where they measured and tested the tire. Approved is the size range the tire is approved for.

Problem is that there aren't a lot of 305/35/20 tires out there. Goodyear has F1 G2s for $280 in that size. I'd prefer NT01s but they skip from 285/35/20 to 315/35/20.

Got a good deal on 20" CCW...

Dunno. That's why he pulled me over - for the windows. Said the exhaust sounded good. Was really into the car. I got on it going onto the freeway. Maybe I buzzed by him at 70 or so.

There was a Sheriff's deputy in the tint shop with me. He went darker.

Anyone running 305/35/20s on the track on all four corners?

I'm just curious if this size will fit on the 10" wide front wheels and not be dangerous at high speed track driving and cornering. If safe, what cold temp / lap hot temp should they be set at?
