    Just Adopted: Two Adorable Hoosier R100 Race Radials

    Yes, Darth has been waiting for a long time, but before he could take his turn at razing a pair of R100 full-on race slicks, he had to run through his supply of R6's. There were 8 of them in the garage when the decision was made to only adopt R100's.

    Well, last month at Laguna Seca, The most-worn pair finally started showing cords. And, while I could get another day out of them if I employed a magic marker to get them past tech, I felt that I had better call the adoption agency, since my next track event is a 2-day deal in the desert.

    So on Tuesday I called up Hoosier. Their Western U.S. warehouse is in Fresno, which just happens to be in the same town I work in. They told me they had five candidates and, with an emotional tremor in my voice, I told them to pick out two of the nicest for my buddy Darth.... I'd finally gone and done it.

    ... Unfortunately my ATM card was burned to a cinder in the process, but thats another story entirely.

    So I show up down at the warehouse to pick up Darth's new babies, and man what a sight... slicks stacked up here, there and everywhere. And thru that door over there... more slicks! Man I tell you it was enough to make me want to bring in an assault rifle and barricade myself in (Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms... who's bringing the chips?).

    Anyway, I arrive back home and introduce Darth to his new kin. Here's a shot of the happy family when they arrived:



    Aren't they cute? Of course, nothing is too good when it comes to taking care of the kids. Here they are all snug as bugs, tucked in for beddie-bye.



    I'll just go get some cookies and warm up some milk for the little tykes. Ah here we are.














    hmmm, what are those zany kids up to now?













    OH my GAHDDDD!



    Deep breaths! Deep breaths! ... Wash out eyeballs ... Dip ears in acid ... Egads don't just stand there DO something!




    ...




    ......




    Waitaminute....




    If I let nature take its course, there's free tires on the way.

















    Lets give these two lovebirds a little privacy, shall we?

    As they say, the trick to going fast is keeping the wheels straight and don't use the brakes.

    265/645/18. 25.5" diameter. Rated for a 9" rim but I had a private chat with a source at Hoosier who said they should fit my 8.5" Borbet's. Lining them up against the 255/40/18 DOT R6's, they are a little wider. Not much. And the R6's are straight up on the edges of the 8.5 rims. We'll see. I am a little anxious but the math on the specs says there is very little difference.

    The R6 tread has a bowed shape, while the R100 has a flat, squared-off profile. My gut tells me there's more contact patch improvement here than the spec sheet says.

    But the most important part is the sidewall logos are painted. Thats a full second off my lap time right there.
