Default B10 BiTurbo on the track

Yesterday I took the BiTurbo to the track at Shannonville for the first time.

What a blast!

However, I learned that the B10 is a mean shredder of tires:

What event was that for? Would have been fun to see or participate.

That is some really extreme tire wear. Looks like they had lots of tread left too, that's too bad they got shredded like that! It would probably help for next time to have your tire pressure higher to keep it from rolling over onto the sidewall so much. Doesn't help being in a big car with a street alignment and a fair amount of body roll.

Oh well, you kept the shiny side up so that's a good day at the track.

It was just a bunch of us who rented the track. If we go again would you like to get in on it?

Yes, I should have kept the pressure up but in fact had lowered the pressure to try and get the rear end out. Oops.
