    It should be... At the SLB in Long Beach earlier this year...I'm pretty sure many of the street class guys were running tires rated at 140.

    Where's Jaku? He would know!

    Billy, so how many cars are you driving this SLB??

    i believe you're correct.

    Oli, I think we would all love to see what your car can accomplish using street tires.

    yup, street class is 180TW and above. I was bumped to limited class at WSIR for using R1R 140TW. See you guys there. I'll be happy if I can break 2:00 on Direzza Z1 star spec.

    i think this is the 1st year Super Lap changed the rules to 180 (thus Manly got kicked out 3rd place in the qualify using 140 R1R)

    i've seen pp using R1R in previous Super Lap events

    also some tires that were 140 are now 180, RE01R for example

    they try to kick R1R out of street class cos that's the only 1 of 2 tw140 top street tires? the other one is Federal but i don't think they know this tire lol

    i totally agreed with Oli and i really want to see what Oli can do on street tires (Oli, what sizes are you running?)

    if the written rules show Oli's car is legal for street class on street tires, it's lame to ban Oli's car, i thought only Redline TA does that, put the cars that they think are too good from factory out of street class (and allow 700hp modified car in street class)

    they never keep the classes by street/track/race oreiented, intead pretty much only tires seperate the classes

    making street class all packed up and no cars goes to modified class

    Oli, street RWD winner will be running 1'59 this year on 180 tires, it should be a good competition for your stock vette

    I hope somebody can hook Jaku up for a seat in SLB, I know he's been preparing and perfecting his car for TA day and night, someone should give this dedicated young man a chance

    SLB is invite-only, and they're looking for unique cars... But maybe for Redline

    You should be doing TA's though! We all want to see what your car can do with Neovas/R1Rs

    Jaku: Can you invite me to the party?
    Jeff: Sorry, this party is invite-only!
    Jaku: . . . . . . . . . . .

    doh . . . . . . .

    you are right tho, my car is not unique at all, i don't even modified my exhaust, they don't welcome sleepers

    Jeff: You can come to another party with us!
    Jeff: Oh, btw anyone can come to this party, for sure you can get in!
    Jaku: . . . . . . . . . . .

    doh . . . . . . .

    i donno if i'm ever gonna use AD07 in my life, even R1R is too expensive to me, Z1 is the best named brand tires that barely fit my budget!

    i don't really seek for competitive results cos my car is nothing close to uniquely modified, just having fun, building up experiences

    i might have a chance to get in SLB, but i have to use different suspension

    The Direzza's seem to be pretty impressive, on par with the neova's at least.
    I believe Yokohama is coming out w/ a stickier neova next year, hopefully it'll be rated at 180 as well.

    That sucks you can't rep Toyo for the event.

    Also sucks how they don't have 205/50/15 for the Star Specs.

    RE01R's are now 180?

    And * Specs are 200??

    I swear the treadwear rating system is all crap. It's all a part of a game the manufacturers play...
