Anyone out there road course racing on the new Federal Tires? I race at Hallett OK and everyone who has tried them there says the Federal Tires are NOT working out.
Some of the top national Legend Racers drive at Hallett. About 5 have tried the new tires on two different weekends. The overall consences are:
They wear out after one weekend (as compared to one whole season with the BFG's)
Lap times are slower.
The 1-ply sidewalls are way too soft.
They may be unsafe at speed over 100 MPH.
Has anyone else had and experience with these tires on Road Courses?

Sorry, all of my experience is on the Hoosier 880 bias ply tire, which I personally think sucks, but it lasts for a while and is relatively predictable.

Sounds like the Toyos used at PPIR this past weekend are working pretty good.
