VR-1 on 9-Inch Rims Vs. Old Rival-S: We then compared the same straightaway data for the VR-1 on the 9-inch wheels and found it had no such divergence. The reasoning? So we ignored any temptation to compare the two days’ results. A new bump at the apex of the back straight’s kink as well as a few recent ripples in the fast Turns 9 and 11 have unfortunately added “driver bravery” to the set of control variables. 2018 TT RS Nardo grey, MSS Track pack, Vagbremtechnic/AP Racing rotors, AP Racing CP9660 calipers, Ferodo DS 1:11 and DS 3:12 pads, Audi Sport RS3 brake cooling ducts, Odyssey 925 battery, rear seat delete, Sparco QRT seats, APR Intercooler, 034 fixed camber plates, 034 front subframe deadest kit, 034 rear subframe mount inserts, Nuespeed RSe11r 18x9.5 45 offset with Nankang AR1 265x35 (Track).

If I remember correctly, stock 20” tires are 26.2” diameter, Hoosiers are 24.8”, stones are 25.6”. Does that mean tire technology has hit a wall? Hoosier Racing Tire’s new lineup of off road tires are developed for top tier performance. What did we take away from comparing these tires on track?

By Andy Hollis The Audi Sport parts for the TTRS are probably much the same. While not our typical scientific test, this comparison would afford us a chance to get used to the new tire, explore its strengths and weaknesses, and gather some ballpark timing data. RE-71R Vs. Old Rival-S: The short answer is that nothing really changed in the pecking order from last year. | From the June 2016 issue Here’s a few examples of unwanted upshifts.

What new developments will come from the class of 2016? All rights reserved. The company has chosen to offer the model in some key sizes, including an uncommon 245/40R15. I'd also be interested to see how that new Nexen N'Fera SUR4 performs. It turned in crisply, offered good grip, and provided audible feedback as we approached the limits of adhesion. Wheel well spats or some nice flares would mitigate the tires’ protrusion, but the increased frontal area is still there regardless. Lap times improved by 0.8 second. These are cars that can’t use a taller tire due to wheel well and gearing constraints, and a 225/45R15 was previously the widest 23-inch-tall street tire available. I've got Ferodo DS1.11 and 2500s as well as some CarboTech XP12. If so to they normally show up at higher speeds or lower speeds? Making it more responsive, more intuitive and easier to drive can definitely lower lap times. Might be just fast enough for a good play tire.

VR-1 Vs. Old Rival-S: Does the larger 245mm VR-1 have what it takes to beat last year’s 225mm Rival-S, both on their optimal rim widths? Do Larger Wheels and Tires Really Make You Faster? So how did I end up with (nearly) fresh Sport Cup 2's? Plus, running full sessions would teach us about the tire’s consistency over the longer run. I've been eyeballing those Vr-1's for a while, especially with the free shipping. All Contents © Hoosier 2020. We would have loved to add a 205mm version of the new Rival-S to the mix, but it was not yet available. By Michael R. October 25, 2020 I never thought I'd ever run Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2's on my 2012 Boss 302. I primarily do single lap time attack so I don't suffer from that issue often.

But long, hard sweepers like Turn 6 and the triple-apex carousel of Turns 16 through 18 did a number on the VR-1 late in each session.

| Tires & Wheels When mounted on 10-inch-wide wheels, the 245mm VR-1 did everything a little bit better: Braking, cornering and forward bite were all improved. I’ve always been in manual/dynamic for autocross but someone suggested trying the transmission in sport but haven’t had any events this year. Add in the unique 245/40R15 size, which is ideal for many of these low-budget cars, and you have the makings of a winner. Wrapping the right gooey stuff around the rim is’ the only way to make a tire faster. Two new tires, the BFGoodrich Rival-S and the Maxxis Victra VR-1, attempt to push tire performance even further, but they each do so using different strategies. The revised tire carves to the apex better and in a more direct fashion. That track was the relatively fast and challenging Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas, and both weekends saw ambient temps in the 70s and partly cloudy skies. Whether you are sliding on the dirt or hooked to the asphalt, Hoosier Tire has the tire you need. The Plan: This time, we wanted to do a strict comparison of the Maxxis Victra VR-1 against the two standouts of last year’s test: the earlier BFGoodrich g-Force Rival-S and its formidable competitor, the Bridgestone RE-71R. Maxxis, a newcomer to this market segment, focused on the bigger-is-better strategy when creating its new Victra VR-1. THE PLAN: First, we’d find the ideal rim width for the VR-1. Dry - 200TW Top Tier: Yokohama A052 > Bridgestone RE71R = BFG Rival S 1.5

Good info! Tires: They are the one common element in all of motorsports. Hopefully there isn't any huge shake up at the top in the AX portion of the test, I just ordered a replacement set of RE71Rs. I’ve heard of people having trouble in manual mode and not holding a gear.

VR-1 Rim Width: 9 Vs. 10 Inches: After setting out on 9-inch-wide rims, we learned that the VR-1 was a very responsive tire. Any word on the wear rate of the new tires? If these work out ok I'll shift to a Hoosier A7 in 275/35-18 which will add another half inch of contact patch in addition to recovering contact patch from water channels. | Posted in The tire was also less susceptible to heat soak because the tread surface was more evenly used.

Have you tried to use manual shifting to correct that? We believe that the aero disadvantage due to that extra inch of rim width was worth almost 4 mph and 0.7 second down the back straight. A full 20-minute track session of hard driving caused it to lose some of that edge, but the falloff in lap times was minor. A back-to-back test showed that it was close, but the old Rival-S was still quicker by a few tenths. The wider, four-rib tires remain unchanged because they’re typically well supported by wider rims on their target vehicles. After a good night’s sleep, we refilled our gas cans, swapped out some tires, and headed back to Harris Hill for a size-for-size comparison.

Hoosier entered the rally market in 2015 and since then has set the standard with its unique sidewall designs that protect rim and sidewalls from impacts. All of these improvements save time. I ran 255/35R18 Hoosier A7 and 275/35R18 Bridgestone RE71R last year. It was about a second slower than those first two, which puts it right at the same deficit we found last year with the other previous-generation tires, like the Dunlop Direzza ZII Star Spec and Yokohama Advan Neova AD08 R. We did notice that the VR-1 in the 205mm size was simply too little tire on the nose of our high-powered CRX.

With 9/32-inch of tread to burn and lap times that appear to be on a par with other enduro street tires, a single set should be able to bring teams to the front over an entire weekend of racing. From Sprint Cars to Open Wheel Modifieds and Micro Sprints, Hoosier Tire is the industry leader in purpose-built dirt track racing tires. The Rival-S simply seemed to grip better. It began in the early 1950's when Bob Newton, along with his supportive wife Joyce, began a successful racing career on the small asphalt tracks of northern Indiana. Then we could start comparing some tires. BFGOODRICH RIVAL-S: Secret-Sauce Construction

Fantastic info once again! On the 4 different circuits I visited last year there are very few corners where I’d choose a different gear than the S mode had selected; it really is better than I expected to be honest. No matter what the powerplant, drivetrain layout, brake setup or suspension design, those four rubber contact patches are what translate it all into motion on the track. Size for size, the RE-71R is still quickest for a three-lap time trial over the old Rival-S–but just barely. We’ve logged countless hours here, most of them in the CRX. The Hoosier Pro Street Radial is the only true steel-belted radial tire for the Pro Street and Hot Rod enthusiast.

The new Rival-S’s improved steering response will likely be even more valuable there, but so will the size advantage of the 245mm VR-1. Not at all.

Our reigning track champion from last year’s test was the 225/45R15 Rival-S mounted on 15×9-inch wheels. I ran 255/35R18 Hoosier A7 and 275/35R18 Bridgestone RE71R last year. In this case, the update only affects the Rival-S sizes with a three-rib tread pattern. BFGoodrich recently took this route when it tweaked the internal construction of its smaller Rival-S sizes.

Right now I have way too many stock caliper pads to even entertain a swap.

Perhaps the big 245mm VR-1 would stand a better chance on shorter tracks? The cost is astronomical and they are supposed to last the least of anything comparable.
