Mine just melted and delaminated. I loved them, and would probably pay the steep price for them, if I wasn't worried about the tire coming apart. I got about 3 track days out of them.

to each his own right? You can say the same for Drag Racing where there is less steering input or braking. Half mile events where no driver talent is needed. Road courses are fun and challenging but...

Here is a Video of a pro driver in a 997RSR ( equivalent of a C6R) at the main circuit. He's on what is likely fresh slicks and setting the overall Pca record of 1:12.
