Kerr and others who have sent me pics so far...Thank you.

PW.

Feel free to contact me via email. I will shoot you some images of comps I laid out to give you an idea or something to pass to boss man.

In July Kevin Kane, Chris Goetz and maybe a few others will be attending the Summer Sizzler at Scotty Ernst track called Trackside. So I will try and gather more pics and if time video.

-----

By chance can someone explain the Schumacher logo and/or the company name? Just wondering what the background is on the company.

I'd never run race tires on your street. As far as breaking in, some tires are best on their first run, no need to break in. Some need a run on them before they get enough grip. This also depends on the track surface. SoCal, we need a run on Sorex 36R's before they'll hook up. You go to some outdoor tracks like they have in Florida and the same tires are one run tires if I'm not mistaken. One thing you should do with new tires is to take off the extra material on the seam in the middle of the tire. Use a dremel with a sanding drum and be careful not to take too much off. Just scuff the surface where the seam is to take it off.

For those that have sent pics of their cars or were thinking about it...

If they are right off your camera you don't have to resize them...640x480 is perfect or any proportion of that.

Thanks again.
