Yeah, I was watching those car building shows last night. I'm guessing that is where the color came from.

Two more days and track season starts for me. The three month summer break seems like an eternity!

I could have rode down at Inde last month, but I usually like to ride my "home" track first to start the season. Shake off the rust and get back in the swing of things.

Yeah, most of the tracks shut down for June, July, and August here in AZ. It is pretty brutal when it is triple digits and trying to ride hard on the track.

Was going to say I couldn't tell a huge difference between slicks and full DOT but between street/track and slick/DOT you'll feel it.

I think I'll be going away from the one company membership. I used to pay the extra because tire mounting and decreased rates, but now I know someone with a tire mounter and track selection (summit point) is more important than who I run with. I do really want to do my race license though.

I only ride with whatever org offers a race practice day at whatever track the day before my race weekend. They usually do good rates for race practice participants.

Have you guys seen the new gen Dunlop slicks. I've been using 195/65 slicks and the new slicks are 205/60. A friend took a pic of both sizes. These new slicks are huge.

I haven't yet but have them in my spreadsheet. I want to get back to Heartland Park this year since they've reopened.

Looks like my first weekend of 2017 will probably be April 15-16 at Raceway Park of the Midlands with TrackAddix.

Would love to get back to NCM but the April one is on my daughter's college graduation weekend and the June one I'll be at Grattan. June 3-4 at HPT might be possible but have the girls. Oct 28-29 it could be covered in snow.

Haha, I was thinking about signing up for the October HPT date. Bit worried about bad weather also. I cant make it to NCM in April either with stuff going in at daughters school. So shooting for June and labor day weekend

I ride MTD at Putnam and NCM. Guys... Putnam Park was repaved over the winter!!! They used the same asphalt that was used at NCM. That, and I just scored a set of gently used ChickenHawk warmers for cheap, so my tires will last more than a day now!

Anyone been to the California Superbike School?
They're coming to COTA on August 14&15th 2 day school and 16th one day school.
Is it worth the money?
Its 900 dollars for a single day with my own bike.

These guys have 60+ schools this year. They have to be making a small fortune.
