    Wonderful day at the “office”. The veloster was comical on snow tires. Useless really. I drove other cars today and had wat too much fun.


    Also this wonderful evo4 showed up again. Great people too.

    I was on my own in C6 today but the stock veloster turbo was good enough for 19/61 today.

    It wasn’t mine. It was at the shop that ordered my tires.

    I’m hoping the last two events broke in my tires as I’ve now fully heat cycled the four (both pair run hard up front one event each). I’m not super impressed with the Z3s but they are wearing well even after baking the outside edge trying to get traction out of corners at autocross.

    Both sides done the calipers are working OK the slides and guards were stuck. The rotors were falling apart lol I didn’t want to chance tech

    after a track day and a few autocross events, i am not impressed with the Direzza Z3. I was hoping for a great all round tire but looks like the only thing that i'm really getting is longevity. they feel more like a 220 or 240 treadwear than a super 200.

    Couldn’t get the goddamn rotor off so I had to destroy it. Ended up doing the same to the other side as well.

    My rotors were mostly bedded in at the end of autox yesterday (1st place of course lol) so that was interesting.
