Top ten overall, or top 10 Maxxis endorsed cars? We have the decals, but came in 17th OA.

Top 10 overall. 
I will have more details once I get them.

Perfect timing just received my new set of Hankook's.  Top ten is not likely but crazy things happen and free anything is great.

So how does this work for those maligned EC scoundrels?

No, we are running AMP next and since we normally run Rivals and never finish in the top 10 it seemed important to know the details.

I was attempting humor and it didn't come off to cleanly  lol.  I was just taking a poke at EC since it does not count toward the official class winners, I was attempting a parallel to this.. :)  Oh, I should clarify, no, I was not personally a submariner, I was on a target as they would call us....well, if I was really there, you know...

We ran them at Gingerman and yes they work but not so well, 1-1.5 seconds a lap off pace with the Hankooks from my memory.

 

We kept them and ran them again at a test day to try to be fair but once again not as happy as the RS4's.

Gee if you really want to test them I'll give them to you and you can test for your self as they still have some tread left and are dismounted, just give me a shout and I'll even swap you for some spotted cow??? I would get the better deal in that swap :-)

Sure going to push my memory,  either 225x45x15 or 245x40x15. I can look tonight and let you know for sure.

 

Our goal was to see if using them would get us on the podium and free tires.

GWR was 1 of the first teams to go to 245-40-15's when all that was available were Maxxis in that size. @Hi_Im_Will might be able to share his experience, but he's not on here much any more. (probably wisely)

If I recall correctly, there is a newly released "V2" revision of the tire that is allegedly designed to be closer to the competitors' pace.

We have run 3, and podiumed, V1 sets, they work, but hope there is a V2
