I am planinng on taking "Li'l Enzo" to track days.

I would like to know who has used Racing Slicks on a Fiat 500/Abarth and what size are they and what rims did you use?

Thanks

You might wanna post this in the Motorsports forum. Use the Autocross subforum since there's no track one. Several folks are there with experience.

My First Autocross running Hoosier A7's on my ABARTH is this coming Sunday.
It's our annual road course event at Texas Motor Speedway.
Results to follow.

Super responsive!!! But so scary to see the car up on two wheels.

No more dog legging, she came up on two wheels!!!!

Reminds me of when I put some wide wheels and slicks on my '70 Fiat 850 Sport Coupe. I had just read where a nationally competitive team had switched to the Spider because of the Coupe's tendency to turn turtle. I spent the whole time course walking talking myself through the process of how Joey Chitwood handles - "Turn towards the side that's down. Turn to the side that's down!" And damned if I didn't immediately get up on two wheels. Watching the ground come up at me through the side window was, ummm, exciting. And without even thinking about it, I put the car on 4 wheels. Whew!

What size Hoosiers?

Would road course use same tires as autocross?
