Looking forward to it! I'm new to the track (two track days), and I'll be running the stock class.

My goals are to have fun and become more proficient driver, not absolute best track times. I'll be running a mostly stock setup, with camber bolts, track pads and a Mishimoto oil cooler.

Currently running Mich PSS on stock wheels, but considering running GT Radial SX2 on stock wheels. How do they compare?

Do most 86's run both days or only Sat?

This season will all be only single days. Some of the guys run the whole weekend if the organizer has the weekend booked. Michelin PSS are great for the street but don't hold up to track use well especially over the length of a session. They start to get a bit greasy as the heat builds and tend to start chunking when you over drive them.

If you're only doing a few track days a year and have MPSS you'll be fine. But if you're looking to do more and want dedicated track tires the SX2s are a great and affordable option not to mention the contingency program. They last a long time & are a great tire to learn to track on despite having a bit less grip than your typical 200TW track tires. Perfect for anybody who's new to track days.

Thanks for coming out to Round 1 of the 2018 86DRIVE Challenge, presented by GT Radial, at Thunderhill Raceway! Despite the bone-chilling cold weather, we had a very good showing, kicking off the start of an exciting new season!

It seems like street class is where the action is this year, so look forward to some intense battles here! It was very close this round, so it'll be very interesting to see how this plays out. Congrats to the winners of each class!

Of course, thanks to our sponsors for making all of this possible: GT Radial USA, Winmax USA, Elite Performance, The Racers Line, Bluemoon Performance, Inc., Verus Engineering, and Scott Grasso Photography.

The next event is on March 17, at Thunderhill West, so remember to register with Speed SF Track Events!

Full results are available here: www.86drivechallenge.com

1 week until round 2! I've been watching everyone's videos of Thunderhill West and can't wait! Seems like a tight technical track made for the 86s
