    Talked to Hoosier about this. The tread pattern has been approved by the MSA. And one size, the 205/65-15, is in production. I don't have a price or compound info, but will have a couple sets in a...

    If you are going to do a Subaru and you will be using a stock engine because of cost, use a 2.2 SOHC engine. They will take a lot of abuse and still have most of the power that the 2.5 delivers.

    There are no "brisk" events. That's a euphemism for a race on public roads, which is verboten, and frankly, not welcome by participants in other events. The original poster asked for TSD events, and...

    I didn't buy them after the first pair. Jeff, Jeff's parents and Brianne bought the rest. And yes, they failed catastrophically and never turned on again.
