  1. Hey Jack

    What Hancooks do you use?

    The 17) 200/610 or 215/615 - 18) 250/640 or 260/660?

      Anthony, I've gone with both combinations, i.e., 200 and 250, as well as 215 and 260.  I did try the 215/ 250 combination but didn't like the handling balance which resulted. 

      Both combos fit and worked well.  If you want to maximize the amount of rubber on the road, go with the 215s and 260's.  If you chose to go with the 260's, I would run a 5mm spacer. BOE has those for the rear...same fitment as the Evora.

      All the best!

      Hey Jack

      I got to the track Friday.  I pretty much had your setup you sent me.

      The car was nicely balanced, I didn't check heat across tires, but I might try 24 - 25 psi in all 4.  Maybe Summer in Florida.

      Anyway, the ABS cried uncle in the 2 corners I thought might be an issue.  (Hairpin, and 10 at Sebring) If I was driving competitively, It would definitely be a loss of time.  I had to start braking a touch earlier in those corners, and try to muscle memory the pressure I needed, not to exceed to the point.   Needless to say,  I will be in pursuit of the Bosch Racing ABS solution.  I don't have the AIM system installed yet as well, so being my non interested in my numbers self, didn't video or time my laps.  Eldon was curious, but I can estimate sub 2:20 laps without a problem. Back straight speed before turn 17 was 140.   I managed to pass a 458 Speciale, McLaren 650LT, 18 Porsche GT3 4.0, and Ferrari F8 Tributo.  Can't vouch for the drivers though.  

      Anyway, thanks for the valuable information, it really helped.
