...winning ALWAYS comes with a price. This time it's tires.

See kids, this is what happens when you use the hand-brake too long at speed.

Not really sure, but I had the brake on for about 1 full second, and I was doing over 60MPH at the time. So...let's say 90'.

...that's how I found the spot.

I've just replaced the rears (new on the fronts) with Bridgestone Potenza G009's.

Much smoother ride...
