Has anyone ever tried running Carbotech XP12s on a spec miata at Grattan? I have a set that I want to use up and I'm wondering if they are too much for that track.

Dan,

I ran them there. I didn't feel like they were too much, but if you are used to the 10's it might take a little getting used to.

Dave

P.S. I don't run them on all 4 corners

After fading XP10s there last year, 12s would be my choice...

They were a race or two old if I remember correctly, and I followed their recomendations to setup a transfer layer to the T. Having said that, I was pushing the car as hard as I could (for the last couple of laps) and with 1.5 laps to go when the first sign of fade appeared I decided to keep pushing and hope that they made it. They turned off in T1 and I found the tirewall...
