Tires are great, feel stickier with better turn in than the NT-01s. I just wish my car wasn't having the issues it was all weekend long to really compare. Best lap was the first day, first session before the problems started (1:46.04) I believe (no video from first day at all) which is more than 2 seconds faster than I've ever gone. The wider compound helps too, but hopefully next time car's up to par to really give them hell. I'm really happy with how the feel out there, will probably stick with them for a while.
The EC7s are great, the fitment in the back with the 58mm is spot on, I'm significantly lower than stock (fenders rolled myself) and the 265 fits nicely, probably have another 10mm back there to play with also.
The wire's the mic that's routed from the inside to the back of the car (through the panels).
Funny the picture with the mini's on the pace lap just as we got the green, but yea he's a buddy of mine and likes to have fun.
