Anyone on here tried v710s? I have a brand new set that I am trying to sell 225.45.17 (not doing as many track days as originally hoped) so far no luck so I may use them for the 3 days at Mosport. Any experience on how they handle colder temps like the ones we are likely to see?

Forgot to add - running them on rx8 with about 1.6 negative camber all around. Tirerack says around 35 hot - is that accurate?

PM me if you don't want to discuss on here.

Stalker, if I didn't cord my R's in september i would be running them, but as it stands I'll be on street tires. It all depends on your level of experience. If you're advanced I would suggest your R's, if you're intermediate or beginner i would stick with the streets.

R's are trickier to run in these conditions but still offer large grip if managed properly.

Def not advanced, not by a long shot, LOL. My track set up are street tires, but Nitto NT05s, which are pretty wide 275/285 combo and they don't come with a lot of tread to begin with, so not great in the rain, and I know they hate the cold.

Sorry I read that as NT01 which are r's, but nonetheless, if you're not advanced I'd recommend regular street tires.

If it's wet, up the tire presure, it will open the grooves to chanel the water better, and you will get up to temp quicker.

I took a bunch at pit out in the morning, and some in the afternoon, couple of the guys had their fancy cameras out, should start a pic thread for the event.

^ We should just make a thread on the Trillium forum. Tons of space over there.

Edit: I'll just make one now. I salvaged two pics off my camera... looks like ass, but gets the ball rolling lol.

Glad to see the DDT event went well.

Who is in for the Friday? Has a decision been made on total Friday track time?

Was thinking about leaving my car at the track and getting a ride back with someone - will split the gas money there and back.

Live on bayview and steeles.

Any idea if there is going to be a mobile tire shop on site on Sat & Sun?

Typical Friday schedule is half hour on, half hour off, so that works out to about 3.5 hours of track time. I saw the preliminary schedule and that's how it stands as of right now. I don't see any reason for changing it at the moment, but tonnes of track time.....
