Glad the tire issue is solved or at least more clear for you. Yes I knew and know the tires were lighter. Yet another benefit of running JACO tires....less rotating mass.

However, you just don't get what I wrote on my BMW post.... I know what a 745 is...I've had a 7 series. I was referring to MY 5 series and YOUR 745. Now hopefully the tire issue is done and so is the BMW one!!! LMAO!!!

none at all , even the left front tire looked great!! the tires just got better with every run, Im still on my 1st set and most likely will run the same set for the next 3 heats tomorow!

OMG...that's funny...someone should've cought that before racing you'd think But hey, it happens.

The tire wear under today's hot conditions is really good news. Seems like there's finally a perfect tire for the brutal hot Florida weather

Damn if you or your wife had been more money savvy you could have saved the 42k and bought a share of JACO.

Yohan- same wheel I tested and you saw..just imagine a different compound rubber tire. They kind of all look similar..this one is round and black with a big hole in the center.

As for the sauces, I could tell you but then....I'd have to kill you.: lol

Barbecue, Teryiaki and Chipotle were all good. The Chipotle was better in the heat.

I have talked to a bunch of racers, and they are all using different types of prep... All seem to work with varied success. Give it a little time to work itself out...
