Agree with above. Autocross is pretty easy on tires. You could easily get two seasons out of a set of those Michelins. At first, you wouldn't be putting much wear on the tires on the track but as you...

How are your tires wearing? If they are wearing even then don't worry about it, if the outside of the tire is completely worn then you need more camber.

You probably won't feel a difference and I'm guessing you're talking about rear tire only so the only difference you'll feel is in the corners and unless you love understeer it won't be a good...

That's how it works at BIR and Road America. When there is a GT350R and a Z/28 on the track the Z/28 has always been faster every time I've gone. The GT350R sounds amazing though :bellyroll:

According to Car and Driver, it laps faster than a GT3RS and McLaren 650s around VIR. Check out #25 and how well it's still holding up :D

You could try a little toe out in the front and it would help with turn in but it also makes the car a bit of a handful on the street if you take it too far. You can add more front camber at the...

Also, anyone that claims the 2017 1LE is faster than the Z/28 around a track needs to read through this. 3.9-second difference around VIR is a very big difference.

If you're sticking with a 20inch wheel I highly recommend a Goodyear F1 Supercar 3 285/30/20 on a 10 or 10.5inch wheel. They are quite a bit less expensive than the Michelins and in my opinion a...

I use a trailer for my trips but I don't think an r-comp tire is necessary for a track tire. A set of Hankook rs-3s or rs-4 would be great as a "track tire" that is still safe to drive back and forth...

How does the Z/28 work with "street tires"? I've only driven one with Hoosiers on and it was amazing! The Re-71 is a good tire but compared to the Pirellis or Hoosiers it's not even close. Does the...

I run the Apex PS-7 19x10.5 with Nitto NT-01 285/35/19 tires. I like it a lot, they work well but brake cooling becomes a MAJOR issue with the stickier tires. I went with the 10.5-inch wheels and...
