Be nice Kyle I haven't been on the track in over a year but I do have a set of new tires and I couldn't tell you the last time I drove with a new set of tires. I have only used AJ's old take offs for the last couple of years so I might be super slow on new tires ! :)

Adding new tires to my car just brought it up one level over a top prepped NA and yes I'm still running the open diff. less drag down the back straight ! Haha lol :)

My goal for the weekend is to not get lapped ! :)

Even cheaper then adding that super trick top prep open diff... Dont you know? I will be on Tiley and bobby t country for a big wedding. Wish I could be there.
