Reflections: Run what you got

Back then (2012), living on an instant ramen noodle diet, I had to run what I got as is.

Ever heard of the tire brand Negotiator? No? Neither have I!

VX wheels are 13×5, I was running 185/70/13 tires on them. Talk about balloon tires. The tires were rated at 110 mph max, I took it past 120mph many times while on a run…

Waiting for the call…
Gas up our cars and minds.
The run
The cool down.
205+WHP + 185/70/13 tires = A setup only P. Runner could master.

It wasn’t an ideal tire set up, but again I had to run what I got. Those days of driving at that speed are over however, I don’t go over 85mph nowadays. It’s all about maintaining now. Living to tell your story.

VX wheels will always have a fond place in my heart.

“I had to pray before going into corners” said Shunei Kawasaki who drove the SS Works CRX on Best Motoring’s Roaring VTEC: Battle at 10,000 RPM. I felt the same way on my tire set up back then. LOL

P.S., I drove by this bar today, and there were people outside enjoying their drinks

It made me think of this

Peace. Stay safe y’all.

Reflections: Downtown Sacramento
