So to make a long story short, I think you might be pretty disappointed in running A-street when you go to Lincoln.
Are you comparing Vette's to S2000's or other RTR cars in different classes? There will be no indexing in Street next year, you'll be running heads up with other A-Street cars.
Regarding how 140tw tires did on index in general this year, A6's and slicks always do better on concrete in hot weather. PAX/RTP is based on all around results including cold temps on asphalt. Guess how I'll do in Oct against Frank/Canak/Fiedler at Miller Park.
I was not referring to the relative performance of the car, but simply the drivability of the car. When combined with the Lincoln surface and national style courses that require a lot of vector acceleration (long + lateral), the car was just difficult to drive. I was looking at the PAX because I really felt the car worked better at other sites (but the courses were different too). I REALLY wanted it to work too, but have more or less given up. Maybe someone else with more setup/driving talent will have better success.
