Better at routing water but get worse as they heat...so it is relative. I've run all kinds of decent street tires in the rain with good result. When I was on my game, I'd run race tires without issue. Not sure I have the sensitivity for that these days.
JAS, what did you and KK think about the Full Course configuration?
Not gonna lie - we were both ready to pack up and go home after the first session! We both hated it. But we stayed, and by the end of the day we were enjoying it! I think we both liked it better than North but not as much as South.
I didn't mind the chicane too much but KK didn't like it. The track would be better without it but I get that, with bikes putting out 200+ hp these days, the end of the back straight would be one long eight hour red flag.
Where does Full rank on your fun-o-meter?
