Deciding on the proper line...

Dave and I seemed at odds here.

Thanks to Anuk for the car, Dave for the track day, Lindsay for whatever she does, and Trev for the pic.

I haven't used either, but have you read the Grassroots Motorsports article from some 9-12 mos. ago comparing the Falkens to Kumho? Seems that the former king-of-the-hill street tire is now seriously lagging the upstart Ecsta XS in lap times

Wonder if that contributed to Anuk having those 2 busted wheel bolts at the end of the day?

452's absolutely suck! I had them on my e36 328is a few years ago and can say what a disappointment. That said they're not even a performance tire, rather than a sporty all season. The 612's are better but slightly. Real perfomance rubber from the past are the Toyo T1S's, but not it's replacement the T1R also sucks. Modern performance rubber belongs to the Direzza sports, or Yoko advans.

He was joking. The S2000 is also running the new RT-615K, which is substantially faster than the old 615. The times between the top tier AD08, RE-11, RT-615K and R-S3 are now very close.

Rich, the bolts broke on the passenger side.
