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). Eddie, Rob or Brandon will show you a few things to have you going smoother, but faster all around. Those 3 are deceptively fast. Every time I ride with them it's usually only a few turns before I realize I'm hauling the mail everywhere. Last time I road Barber with Rob I had scary noises coming from the tires in the turns and thought there was no way to carry any more speed in those corners. Then Rob looked over his left shoulder and gave me a thumbs up looking back at me, and sped up. Really made me feel like

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.

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.
