These are a little wider than the RA-1's that came off, so I need to make a few minor adjustments... but looking forward to seeing how they do. Should have quite a bit more grip.
Thanks to Betim @ BBI Autosport for setting me up with the set.
Anyone else running these?

makes sense, im guessing more for the front tires, since u can just do a burnout to heat up and clean off the rears.

no..the rears need it just as bad if not more....rule of thumb...cold fronts..understeer....cold backs..oversteer.

no tire warmers needed, just need a lap or two to get things up to temp before you start to push

Badass, any vids of the car? I've been addicted to E46's forever, hoping I can pick one up in the next year or 2.

That's Laguna Seca not Estoril right?

Correct, Laguna Seca Blue

No vids from Friday yet, but here's an old rear view video from Buttonwillow

I run with various groups. This was just our annual post-Thanksgiving event put on by a friend of mine for the last 7 or so years.

Back in 2003 there were only 15 of us. Now the event hosts 40+ cars with 3 different run groups, but still more than enough track time.
