YellowDuck Posted July 10, 2014 Report Share Posted July 10, 2014 Round three of my race series is this weekend. I missed the first round due to a mechanical issue but did well in the second. Forecast for this weekend is for RAIN. I have rain tires mounted on a separate set of rims (Bridgestones). They are lightly used but should serve the purpose. I am getting a bit stressed about the prospect of having to make the call as to which tires to use, given that it will take me at least 45 minutes to do the wheel swap if necessary (10 different fasteners to safety wire!). Hopefully I have help. Anyway, there is a realistic chance that I will find myself sitting on the grid ready to start the race, on tires I have never used, in conditions I have never experienced. Other than using the siting lap to get a feel for the traction available, any advice? Starting to feel like I might have been better off having only slicks. Then the decision is easy...rain, no race. On the other hand, many of my competitors will flake out if it rains, so it is a chance to accumulate some additional points. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
