Default Reuse inserts for consistency

Reuse inserts for consistency on touring cars?

I do not know if it does make a difference , i have only used 3 sets of inserts all the time for 3 years because i dont throw away inserts that wear. Do you?

Affirmative

Not only Masami, Atsushi Hara recycles inserts too. It was kind of comical seeing Hara cutting out his "one run" tires to get the inserts, someone asked him abt and he replied he was sponsored for tires only, not inserts!! That was 2 years back when Hara still ran the Pro2, and Masami the MR4 TC Pro.

Anyway, managed to see Hara last year while on transit to the World Race in South Africa, asked him about the insert thing and he said the used inserts tend to be more "settled", "flater" and gives more traction. Well, that's was I remember anyway.

Cheers
