Ride with Brandon or Eddie or Rob if you come to the Memorial Track day. Right now I believe you're hard on the brakes, carrying as much speed as late as you can (alot like Kyle rides).

Got some negotiating to do, and pull off the spring event with enough money left over for two down payments, but I think we are good.

I take it that you are spinning the rear when coming out of the apex?

1 is the tire, and 3 is the temp. Are either of those wrong in my setup?

As to riding the piss out of it...I didn't get A group by backing off

One reason that I keep eluding to throttle and suspension is what Marcello just went through this past season. He became faster and towards the end of the season with his last race he was lighting up tires like tomorrow. The symptoms you have are almost mirroring his and his lead to suspension.

I had chuck with performance werx set mine up at Barber...the tires wore much better which is why I think I'll get 2 more days out of them. But that still only makes 4. I'll definately try to ride with some of you guys to see if I can change up my riding a little.

Wherever we meet just leave the bike key at home. I'll do the same, and we can conserve tires together
