I'm with the Oreo.No generator (I dont bother with warmers at track days).
As was alread said earlier, tires run out of tread long before heat cycles become an issue.Why don't you use them..that's just putting the tire through more heat cycles
This for sure ! There are all kinds of ways to save money doing TDs or racing ( I do both and do not have all kinds of $ ) Pirelli SC2s require no warmers and give good life . I use to have an s10 and it was packed so i feel for your ranger ! I bought a van holds all with room to spare plus is a motel on wheels equiped it with a pitbull TRS best money ever spent easy 1 person load / unload . Get a little grill and bring your own food easy to spend a ton of $ eating ! The more you get into this the more you will find ways to cut your costs !As was alread said earlier, tires run out of tread long before heat cycles become an issue.
If you're a broke college student then you better start learning how to cut costs...
- skip the generator & tire warmers
- buy a small pump you can plug into your car
- get a harbor freight 4x8 open trailer with 12" wheels. I've had mine for 6 years and it cost me under 300 bucks shipped to my door.
Skip the frills & spend the money where it counts: Gear, tires, suspension, track time, instruction, preventative maintenence, etc.
http://www.harborfreight.com/motorcycle-wheel-chock-96349.htmlYeah good point I'm gonna look at an open trailer. I do have trouble unloading and loading my bike out of my ranger. I can't really do it by myself. Plus putting the bike on stands, I think a solid wheel chock would be a good investment. Any good brands?
