1-1.5 seconds is a lot!  That looks like a whole lot of fun man.  Do they come in a better size though?

the thread is way smaller than cup2, 5 time attack lap you get the ultimate grip, after that the grip  is gone and they behave like normal cup 2. they overheat on lap2. set up 265/305.

you go through them in one trackday
