Lee's New Donuts~!!!

After a tedious and sweaty trip up North, scrounged and scavenged (pun intended) for a perfectly new set of donuts for Lee's (of Kiong Lee Exhaust) pristine B-series EK~!
Upon return, the excited bugger immediately took to installing these reknown track oriented tires and thus warranted a test drive! The dry handling was commendable (as expected) with superb road holding at the cost of noise and wet performance.
But the wear rate was just horrible, after just one run, the corner threads had started to wear towards the sidewall. Time for some extra camber methinks~! *evil thoughts*I can't wait to test them up my favourite bit of the uphill! Oooh... ~!!! The last time I tested with partially-worn AD07's up front, and balding ones in the rear, I managed to clock 120km/h uphill before braking hard into the tight right hander leading to the dam.

I wonder how these gumballs will improve that? Or will the retard in acceleration outweigh it's cornering advantage? *Grimace* I may get faster times, but slower clocked speeds.

i believe the retard in acceleration unless the engine is reasonably powerful enough

That's what I'm thinking too X, but somehow, deep down inside, I want the cornering speed to make up for the straight line loss...

I'm a real kid deep down. Dang! We'll get the results soon enough.

Hi Dennis. This is indeed only the 4th set of semi's that I've tested and honestly, nothing comes close to Yoko's A048 so far.

Hey X, indeed we are... I just can't wait for the weekend~!!! *evil thoughts*

Dennis Tan said...

lol~ true enough. i had try a set of 048 behind mango's wheels, and i cannot settle with non other than A048 already, R888 seems a class below ^.^ hohoho~ now setting another set of 205/50R15 for keeping ^.^

cheers~
