Default hard to heat

ok the first time i test it seam like firt time in track...

i ve made 2 stupid donuts ...just because they REALY nead to heat..a lot.

so count 3 full laps go go optimum temperatur....but after that, they are realy beter than toyos...and ive runed almost 6 pair off r888 ..

maybee ill use the r888 again in hillclim dirty road...

and its a lot off money for 4 tyres

I presume you run alot of camber?

I tried radial slicks on the front of my 106 and it was all over the place.

They should be better than the 888 as they are a full race slick.

Yer I bet your still stughling to get the rears to max working temps.

I would of gone out, and done a run. Get them all hot, swap the fronts with rears after, then the rears should be better.

Not easy because you have a hard compound

For a Saxo, medium compound really is the compound to use. Can use hard on the front, but Saxo get no really heat in the rear.

Default rain

hello ...


so the slicks over normal rain are imposible to drive, that everybody knows!!!!!
and its true , you cant brake or pull not even turn. not usefull!!

BUT maybee what you dont know is that under low rain or humid pavement the sliks ( they are michelim S9B) , still are a beter tyre , even whith small rain condicions they are driveble , but a bit less.

yes, they cost 1270 euros the 4 but is the one off the most impresive mod ive made .
will buy it again and again.

thanks for .

Default the new set.

so this tyres runed over a year now.
MICHELIN S9B 19/57-15

S9 its the harder counpoud and this the exelence tyres for motorspot.

you will se it on LOTUS ELISE CUP, OLD AND NEW CLIO CUP, etc.


the righr front tyre has riped ,the left front tyre has a few laps before rip.

BUT..the rear ones are still very good!!

i ve made up to 8 trackday and timeattack this year!!a
they are so good that at the local timeattack org i run in the pro-class!!!
my other competitor are PROTos and bikes engined cars.
i ve bean moved to a uper class based on tyres and lap difrence!

so ive buyed a new set and maybe the last ones.ill try to buy used ones!

they are S9C..C ist the latest evolution! and they cost a fortune!

1388 EUROS= 1105 uk£

they are the best track tyres in the planet. it will improve your lap time by a big difrence!
