I agree with the sentiments so far...if you are going auto against his manual, you stand a very good chance of winning. Maybe run your rear tires a bit on the low side (30 psi) and make sure you...

Now an interesting angle to this is...do you end up on racing tires because you *intended* or needed to be on race tires, or did all that come about because you...

Yes, I think we could all be relieved if that was the appearance on an 80k mi part. This one was only 12k mi. So while it still looks in good shape, it still has a long service life ahead to keep...

How are you certain it was a "well-designed" part? Maybe it was inherently flawed as a matter of geometry being particularly vulnerable to manufacturing variances? Maybe the cycle time for good...

Ah, so you are actually talking about blow-by in the piston rings, that increases as the rings and cylinder walls wear, right? The thicker oil restores more the "seal" (at least when it is cold). I...

Well, where does "staying power" come from?...it is the lack of wear, right? Things don't wear unless they are coming into contact. That's why "film strength" is a key factor, not viscosity. Film...

I'd say it is pretty darn noticeable that you get more traction from a 265 over a 225 on an all season tire. Dial out the camber in the rear, and you are looking at some pretty substantial grip.

Rear Camber Bushings...should be higher on your upgrade list than you think

Don't get me started on the better prospects for tire wear...but there is a whole world of tire performance waiting for your discovery just by squaring up your rear wheels to the road (0 deg camber)....
