    Re: Tire question for the track

    Hard for me to tell. His bags are in the way. He's certainly close in a few places. John certainly has better body position than I do (this doesn't surprise me).

    I typically drag through 2, 3, the bottom of the bowl, 10 (as i bounce through it) and all through 11-12 and the drive out of 12. (I'd love to fix the drive out of 12 drag). John takes a wider line out of 12 than I have been. Since I'm really not concerned with times this is probably what I should do as well.

    I've actually learned to use dragging as a bit of a slope indicator. Dragging pegs means I'm getting close to dragging hard parts, which causes problems. :/

    It gives you more grip for the wheelie down hot pit.

    Re: Tire question for the track

    Okay so are there any inexpensive places to mount and balance the tires either in the Springfield Ma area, or in the NH Seacoast area if I don't want to wait until the track? I just called a few places locally and they all charge around $40 per wheel if I bring just the rims in. That seems a bit ridiculous IMO. If I do it at the track, is that something that needs to be done the night prior? And do they actually do a mount and balance there?

    Sorry for the noob questions

    No idea. But make sure they leave the stickers on.

    He may not be in the video, but he does.

    Still not as much as me. His body position is still better than mine, but yes, he does scrape.
