RACING...Because with baseball, football, basketball, tennis, and golf, you only need one ball

I used to think that I had learned patience as I got older. Then I realized that I just didn't give a shit

Yes, it'll be your car.

Alright, folks - we've got slots 1, 2, and 3, filled. We've still got room for two more people!

If you ever wanted to put your car on a track but didn't know how, Then this is a chance in a life time. Better get your name in.

I did the HPDE program with my car at the beginning of the month, and it was a blast!

Don't miss out - we've still got two spots available!

Two questions Ivan. Do I get a free DC t-shirt too, if I already have one on? Ha ha
Second...my front tires on the inside of both have worn pretty good, still some tread on the rest of the tire but could take some traction away...is that going to affect my car from passing inspection?

Optimists think the glass is half full.
Pessimists think the glass is half empty.
Engineers realize it's twice as big as it needs to be.

No...no bands showing. Just pretty worn on the inside and this happened to my old set even though when I put this new set on I had them check and fix the alignment. But it still happened to this new-er set anyway.

you shouldn't have any tech issues so long as there are no bands showing, but you'll probably end up replacing them shortly after this event. Too much toe-in is the likely culprit for inside tire wear.

case in point:

Ya they are not THAT bad but they were on my old set when I replaced them. That's what I figured but according to the guys that aligned my car it's set correctly. That is the way they are wearing though.

time for new alignment guys or home alignment. Do you have the printout from the last time you had it aligned? I wonder what kind of toe you're running right now?
