    Any idea when they start letting people in at Road Atlanta on Friday? Also, is there 30A power on first come first serve basis?

    You nailed it, anything can be changed, but suspension work costs $$$ so good to know ;)

    What’s up with my tire?

    Yep, I think we’ve figured out that new rubber is the best. And no, I’m not gonna ask what brand of rubber to get because I know this thread will never die then (and I already bought a set)! ;)

    What’s up with my tire?

    A 2019 tire would have dry rot? Hard for me to believe. One Dunlop vendor at “another” track day said it could be due to cold temperatures when I showed it to him. It’s the only explanation I have for it so far. Anywa, I replaced both front and rear with a fresh set but I was curious to what it was.

    What’s up with my tire?

    I'll show it to the Dunlop guy next time I go just to educate myself. I had carried this set around to several track days just in case I needed a tire and I showed them (front and rear) to two different Dunlop vendors before I put them on and they both said they "looked fine to use". That was...

    What’s up with my tire?

    New set of tires sure is cheaper than wrecking...and since I don’t know where these tires had been before I got them it was probably a bad idea to use them to start with! Maybe I should just get smarter Thanks y’all!

    What’s up with my tire?

    Just checking to see if anyone had anything similar happen, have heard people claiming Dunlop slicks can start cracking when stored in freezing temperatures but don’t know what that looks like and I even saw website that sells them stating they don’t ship them when temperatures are below...

    What’s up with my tire?

    Had some slicks that were on the bike (Gsxr-600) when I bought it, Dunlop 448/451. I swapped them out for Q3+ until I got “up to speed” since I was new to track. So put them back on for Roebling a few weeks ago, they were slightly used but looked fine (one track day according to previous...

    Camping at CMP

    I don’t see any 30A camping spots available on website for Friday 4/23. I really just need regular 20A power and somewhere to park the night before and for Friday. Do I just show up Thursday evening and I will get in even without reservation? Never stayed at the track there before. Anyone know?

    tire warmers

    Funny you should mention that, swapping tires at home is the only time I’ve used the warmers so far and it helps :) As long as there’s low risk of Q3+ getting too “greasy“ I’ll try using the warmers next time (very carefully). I’ve already got a generator so I’m set there. Can’t be any worse...

    tire warmers

    Thanks! I’ve been running Q3+ and did get warmers when I bought the bike and haven’t used them but was wondering if they were ok to use with my tires, warmers are single temp 175F chicken hawk warmers. Just got me wondering if it may help on the first few laps after I took what I think was a...

    tire warmers

    I know this is somewhat old but are you running warmers with the Q3s (or Q3+) too? I’ve heard a lot of mixed opinions on that so figured I’d ask the experts :) thanks!

    CMP 10/17-10/18

    Yep, listen to Bmart. I learned the hard way first lap of last session at Road Atlanta a week ago, front tire let go in a snap and I went swimming in the gravel trap (cold tires do let go even though it wasn’t that cold at the time). Had planned to be at CMP this weekend but my bike needs some...

    Power hookup at Road Atlanta??

    Anyone know what the deal is for getting power at Road Atlanta 10/2/20? Do you need to reserve it ahead of time? I don't need 30/50A, just a drop cord. Thanks!

    What ear plugs do you use?

    Thanks everyone for the suggestions!! I'll try out the ones mentioned and maybe I'm not cramming them in there far enough. I did roll up the foam ones I tried but I did not pull back on the ear so maybe that will make a big difference. I just can't afford to go any more deaf than I currently...

    What ear plugs do you use?

    The last couple of track days my left ear has been messed up for days until it finally clears up so I can hear normally again. I’ve wore Pinlock plugs and last time I tried regular disposable foam plugs but the outcome is still the same and always on my left ear only. Any suggestions on great...
