Star Specs for sure. The Nittos aren't awful, but were the only tire that seemed reasonable for AX that I could get in a 19 for the CSL wheels. Wet performance is meh for the Nitto. A season of AX wears the Nittos out. They are priced a little better than the Star Specs but the Star Spec performance is better overall.

VERY nice pickup, Rachel!! Sold the Gixxer, I presume. Though that bike was no slouch, quite the upgrade.

Andy, you really ripped out a good last run. Pretty impressive. You prob gained 2 slots in the standing\s, with that run. Noyce going!

I was killed bby limp mode on every freaking run. I'm amazed that I was that close to the top as I was. Dudek is a machine, and i managed to finish dayum close to him for 2nd place... with limp mode conditions. Feel good about being able to do that.

Now to get them to fix the dayum car again!!! Grrrr.
