  1. Cool, I’ll have to give the Supercar 3 a try as they do make them for the Cayman.
  2. @Matt93SE Just got me wondering. Could the tire shine formula that’s applied to the face of the tire after every wash caused some issues even though it’s only on the sidewalls 🤷🏻‍♂️? Grasping at straws.
  3. Thanks for the feedback. The car is stored in a NON climate control garage so the only sun exposure is when I take it out. My starting tire pressure was 29 PSI cold and that rose to 37 PSI after 15 minutes on track. I brought the tires down to 35 HOT and let them cool down to 31 PSI before heading back out, but they were still hard as rocks. I have a few paint and gasoline cans in the garage, but I don't think that it would be enough to cause this. I just checked the tire date and even though I purchased them a year ago, it seems like they sat in a warehouse for almost 18 months, before they were sold to me . , so they're almost 2.5 years old and who knows how they were stored for the first 18 months. I'm going to buy a durometer and see what it says https://www.pegasusautoracing.com/productdetails.asp?RecID=349. Entered DOT code: 2918 Date of production: 2018-07-16 Your tire is 2 years 5 months 20 days old.
  4. Can RE71R's with zero track time get heat cycled out in one year and 2,000 highway miles? Yesterday was my first time back on track after 18 months and it was my first time tracking the Cayman S, so there's no doubt that my times were going to be off, but I couldn't even match lap times set by my Miata. The one year old RE71R's with 2,000 miles on them couldn't get any traction, even after playing with the tire pressure. The tires squealed like a pig and felt like treadwear 400 tires. Even stopping in a straight line resulted in the tires screeching (yes they were screeching while braking in a straight line even though ABS was enabled ) and taking forever to stop.
  5. From what I've been told SCCA allows the stock hoops for HPDE type stuff, but I personally wouldn't feel comfortable tracking the car with the stock aluminum hoops. I went with the cheap $90 dollar fixed position Paco Motorsport lowering kit as I couldn't shell out $400 for the Aurora Designs, but let us know what you think of them.
  6. We bought the exact same car 😃... That's funny considering that there wasn't another club with the Brembo package within 75 miles of San Antonio.
  7. That should work for my application. Thanks
  8. @robertcope Would you still recommend the Stop Tech 309's? How did they do with the NT01's?
  9. Bringing this back into the market, now that the pandemic is over.
  10. I'm taking a break from the Hobby and selling my 16' 2016 BigTex 60CH Car Hauler that I used to tow my Miata and FRS. The car hauler was purchased new in 2017. I had a keyed toolbox installed on the tongue ($200) and replaced the crappy tires with Goodyear Endurance tires ($550), which have a much higher towing speed rating. I picked this trailer, because it fits in a 20' garage (total length is just under 20'). The trailer has both fenders, I just removed the left fender to get the car door open all the way. The trailer is located in San Antonio, but I can meet at H2R (San Marcos) $2,000 Bringing this back into the market, now that the pandemic is over.
  11. You’re putting 700+ to the ground, in a car that is only RWD. I would save on the N2O and get more seat time in the car as it’s going to take a lot of practice to drive that car at it’s full potential on a road course.
  12. Street, so I guess that I was lucky. I love the adrenaline rush, but for me, it’s not worth the risk.
  13. I sold my R6 after almost being killed for the third time. I don't think that I will make it out alive the fourth time.
