All in this year!

Got myself an Autocross tire trailer... And a set of Hoosier A7 tires. 275 35 18 rear, 245 35 18 front. The fronts are waaay wider than the Nitto NT01 245 40 18 that I've run for the last few years.
BTW, racing makes absolutely no practical sense. I am insane.

I'm learning that track time is what keeps me sane!

Nah, you're still sane but you are making great progress

Many think crossover occurs when you acquire an aluminum hauler and dedicated tow vehicle. Personally, I don't think you've put the in fully to sane until you somehow convince your spouse to spread the gospel about above purchases being "great ideas" to all your buddies' significant others and at least one takes the bait.

Even higher power of IN is obtained once you acquire a dedicated track ride

Resistance is futile and I can see you're nicely giving up hope and putting the pieces together. See you soon!

OK, I've got room to grow. But I have taken another step.. Despite having less than enough time to do everything I need to do for normal life (laundry, work stuff, etc) I spent an entire day prettying up the new trailer

Here's the vid from my FTD run:

The course designer put in a really long straight, may 1/5mile. I was mid 80's before letting off.
