17″ Slicks all around

Jan 8, 2010

Here is the car as it ran the 2008 Indy event.  I’m running Yokohama slicks on all four corners.  The fronts are 17×8.5″ Enkei RPF1 rims with 230/625/17 Yokohama A005 Slicks in an S04 compound.  Rear is 17×9.5″ RPF1’s with 260/640/17 Slicks, also in the S04 compound.  The car was pretty quick with this setup, in fact too fast for the brakes. During qualifying a brake duct bent up, causing the 550 degree Willwood brake fluid to boil. The brakes completely failed and I pitched the car sideways through a corner, hitting another car.  The race ended with me losing 2nd place in a spin and finishing 4th in class.
