    Im back! with fresh pic of the haga and another tire question ;)

    Hey all, been awhile! Been a funny old year, split with the gf, pc blew up lol. Been busy with the business. But the suns out now so all is well!
    So been using the haga all winter on a set of sc1 front and sc0 rear supercorsas. You can guess how fun that was unsurprisingly they dont work too well now. Question is do i now get a set of road supercorsas (bsb or sp) as i usually run, or try a set of the new rosso corsas?? Bearing in mind im gonna be doing at least 2 trackdays in Group 3 on them, i trail brake to kneedown on every bend usually. They up to that??

    Oh and i lied Dunno how to get a pic from my phone on here or if it can be done!? Ha!

    Allright stranger the Pirelli Rosso's are great (now there scrubbed in )

    The BSBs are awsome as long as you don't use them in the wet or cold, what's the chance of getting a dry track day in Britain

    Hey dudes! Good to be back!
    Caz that the rosso corsas yeh? Yeh thats what appealled to me

    Nik, (nice avatar), was it the rosso corsas you got or the rosso 2's

    Ck, yeh man iv had the bsbs before, and they were Excellent once hot and on track, did one evening on track with them (see my avatar pic) only thing is they took 3 laps to warm up and after that day they never felt quite right back on the road :/ like they were baked or something (im thinkin tires warmers to keep em warm between sessions and cool down more gradually could prevent that?)

    If it were just riding on english roads then probably the rosso corsas would make alot more sense. But dont know if they'll cut it on track
    And edge to edge for 20mins in the blazing sun in france....
    Hmm

    Ah right yeh, my mates got them. definitely the best i`v ever seen him ride too. He raves about em. But he`s never been on track, and im very agressive when I am. Had it step out properly twice on the bsbs at that brands evening, so dont wanna find i`m slower on the rosso corsas, its a tough one, be alright if i had the cash to just do a trackday every month and try all the tires i liked lol!
    Also planning another france/spain trip and last time I had the bsbs right to the edges of the front somtimes non stop right left right left for maybe 18miles. Fitted diablo 3's over there (got a puncture in the rear bsb, and they had already done 4k), and I had to drop the pace off alot even after a fair bit of scrubbing :/

    Think im gonna end up talking myself into another set of bsbs! lol even if they are SUPER shit when its cold (not as bad as you think in the wet strangely).
    Yeh fook it! and I`ll get tires warmers. Done!

    Next question....tires warmers
