I actually called Toyo USA in California yesterday and was told that the RA-1s were NOT going back into production.

Plus the rules would need to be re written, in order to allow the newer production dates.

Note that Phil's tire service made a post to a similar effect on the NASA forums.

Well guys I'm very sympathetic to your woes. I am a racer (20 years)/tire guy (32 years)/ race tire guy (20 years) and trackside support vendor for going on 4 years. We do trackside support for 3 NASA regions, Mid Atlantic, Northeast and Great Lakes, and this year we will be doing 5 events in the Northeast for SCCA , solely as a Toyo Motorsports dealer there to support the Spec Miata crowd. We are a Hoosier, Hankook and Goodyear race tire dealer also. I pride myself on helping the racers as much as I can at the track with their tire problems. I don't try to "tell them" anything in particular, unless they ask. What I try to do is listen to what they give me as far as info/input about their problem and then I give them back a direction to start or a reason for the problem. Sometimes you just need some one to organize your thoughts for you and get you headed in the right direction. Most of what happens out there on the track is physical in nature (physics if you will), you just need it to make sense. Being a racer myself, I can understand immediately where you are coming from. I love what I do and love being at the track. I think the advice that I share, is just another part of my job.

PS - I'm not trying to steal Joe's thunder here. He's a friend of mine too. We are all in this together.

Why would I buy tires the 205/50/R15 from Phils
tires at 138.00 ea, when I can buy them from the
tireshoppe cheaper?
This is what price Phils tire has on the NASA
forum for the specmiata tire.. Then to think of
it Phil's tire guys, drive Porsche??
