Hoosiers have not proved faster at every track - just sayin.

 

Also, I don't think we get to pick which rules we want to follow.

 

The first year the Hoosier came back, 2010 Nationals 7 Track Records fell.

Help Me out..

 

Sebring Long, VIR, Road America x2, (Sprints, Run Offs), Savannah, Barber, Homestead,

Just about every track configuration the tire proved to be faster.

 

The new SM7 is a whole new animal, new setup and learning curve. Should prove to be interesting and save a lot of people money this year.

Maybe I missed these answers, When can one start testing with it? When available? When does the field have to start using?

Tom Fowler posted that they should be available mid December.

 

If your doing Sebring you better get your order in.

I'd do the same for any Spec Miata racer, not only an "X" 1.6er.  :bigsquaregrin:

This is (potentially) good news.  On what information is this based on?  What I've read thus far hasn't led me to think they'll be competitive for more heat cycles (compared to the SM6).

Sorry to bring this one back to life, but a few beers at the bar last night brought this convo up again.

 

Has Hoosier released any details of their Divisional contingency?  Not that I have much of a chance of a podium in SM, but I can always dream, right?

Hey Vick, dreams do come true. Ask any true Packer fan about Sundays NFL game in the great state of Texas. Kind of ironic, Cowboys quaterback from Burlington, WI with the Packers (ah, backup) quaterback from Tyler, Texas.
