Doug Polen suggested that I switch to a stickier tire for our next one-on-one session. I currently have Michelin Pilot Powers. Any opinions on Michelin Pilot Race??
Using Medium/Soft Power Race's front and rear and love them. 31/24 front/rear pressure for the 998R. :twocentssocal said:Doug Polen suggested that I switch to a stickier tire for our next one-on-one session. I currently have Michelin Pilot Powers. Any opinions on Michelin Pilot Race??
They're both fine.BALLZ said:jeffkoch check into some suspension settings, sounds like your bike is not set right....
Michelin and Dunlop setting will be different. I never could get a round Dunlop front to get anywhere with Dunlop. Michelins I've run always had a different setup (same bike) verses a Dunlop setup. Michelin fronts are more aggresive in profile even the new power race ones. Just a thought. Sure your not cold tearing the tires?JeffKoch said:They're both fine.
Especially since the Dunlop was fine on the same bike with the same settings. Several other AFM guys I know have similar problems - maybe it's partly the local track surfaces, I'm not sure.
Nope, happens even on 100-degree days. I did wind up making some changes in back (only, I kept a Michelin front) to compensate for the huge difference in tire height, dropping the rear ride height like 10 mm - I played with comp. damping a bit too, and next time I'll probably run a bit more, but that's about it. The fatter rear slowed the steering a bit, too - and gave much better mid-corner stability and fantastic exit drive. Great tire. :rockonBALLZ said:Sure your not cold tearing the tires?
