    I have heard from two different people who are fairly plugged in to the SCCA national scene that there is a compound tweak coming to the g-Force Rival for 2015. Is this true and if so what's the timing? I haven't been able to find anything to this effect documented on the Internet and calls to both Tire Rack and Michelin Customer Care had them both tell me aside from new sizes for 2015 they were not aware of any other changes to the compound.

    Trying to figure this out before I buy a new set of tires ...

    Rival S in rumored to be announced in February, but there hasn't been anything official yet.

    Ok, thank you, I'll stay on the look out and wait until the last minute possible to make any purchases.

    Thank you. Unfortunately doesn't look like my size is on the first batch of production.

    these are supposed to be ~ 1.5 seconds off Hoosiers. Some STX guys are claiming they're just as fast as DSP cars on them.

    I raw-timed DSP in February on Dunlop ZII*, but I wouldn't read too much into that. Come sweeper-heavy summer courses, I'm sure it will reverse. Reports from those at the Rival S testing were that they're still 1-2 seconds slower than Hoosiers on the rubbered-in Lincoln surface.
