Thanks for the kind words guys,the main reason for the lack of grip is its been damn cold up here in Ontario Canada for the only 2 events I've been out for.The 710's are simply too hard,the air/asphalt too cold and the car too light to get any heat in the tires so its very slick.I figured trying to tune the chassis to work with hard cold tires was a waste of time,I bought a set of used 8.5 lb Keizers for 20x8x13 hoosier slicks for next year-I don't expect to be making as many steering corrections then.
The reason for the studded tires(off the ice racer) is that I tried to minimize the lenght of time the R tires were in the cold as I'd like to use them for track days next year where I should be able to get some heat into them.
I've been ice racing for nearly 15 years,now that solo season is over the ice race car can come back to the shop to be prepped for this year.
This is ice racing for you california folks,I ran a civic last year for the class and overall championship titles.
Btw the flat black Geo with the white wheels at the start is my wife. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RRuEEVfqHxs
