You think Umino is using the same technique when picking the freshest fruits?

Thanks! I have to figure out the action shots, most cars have a blur to them.

The track is very fast. Ten cars mains are fine. A 13-14 second per lap track is not a "big" track.

Umino went through exactly the same amount of tires for Ronald as everyone else - 11 sets. These 44 tires could be sorted any way he pleased to make the 11 sets.

I personally have had no tires problems and all sets have been consistent. I did not match mine. My only complaint is that a harder compound might have been a better choice.

Looking good out there Rick, new AE car looks quick outdoors

My post about RVs' tires was of course tongue in cheek

Not sure, but Rheinard is in the middle of a re-kit after the incident.
