Basically ran the same times on both tires at both sites. I liked the car a lot more on the BFG's and they paid better contingency, so that is the route I took.

Neither tire can hold a candle to the Yoks.
Pretty much what he's saying but the heat tolerance on BFGs is significantly better. Especially if you are dual driving. Between the Bridgestones and BFGs you will likely never overheat your BFGs with a co-driver but with Bridgestones you can. The BFGs also recover better if you exceed your maximum cornering grip. They're more sluggish on turn-in (they are wider ever so slightly too) but offer better feedback to the driver in sweepers.

Curious about this, for the guys that are running -4 degrees of negative camber or more that do occasionally take their cars to the track. Has that much negative camber, negatively impacted braking performance ?

I'm at -4.2 of camber. No issues on track
