Quote from: ronaldo9 on June 14, 2010, 03:14:50 PMThat is odd bc I know a few ppl that run the new Michelins and love them. This is the first time I've heard a poor review of them.

Quote from: tstruyk on June 14, 2010, 04:07:37 PMyou got skill man, he ran a 6.0! Even if it was on a B the tire wouldnt be that much different for him as it was for you... pressure right? set up? did you try to change anythnig to get more traction? Guys go fast on them there michelins (well all tires for that matter)
Quote from: benprobst on June 15, 2010, 09:36:48 AMI ran a 6.3 on that piece of shit C with 50 laps on it. The C is a great tire, it lasts and lasts with amazingly consistent and predictable grip. The B also lasts longer than 2 races, for someone like you speedy it will last 4-5, but like I told you it will be starting to go off in that 4th race. The best thing about the new michelins is how long they stay fast, even after they drop to 85% traction and start sliding a bit they remain at that level until they are in the cords. Judging by what your bike did when I pushed on the seat Id say everything had to do with your poorly set up stock shock and what the 100 degree temperatures were doing to it.
