We recently track prepped this beautiful Silver Porsche 997 GT3 RS with BBS E88 belonging to Eli Kogan from OTTO Car Club, a unique social club and storage facility for car collectors and enthusiasts in Arizona. To provide proper restraint and support, we installed our our BBi Autosport StreetCup Roll Bar powder coated in Satin Black, Schroth GT3 Harnesses, and a Recaro Profi SPG racing seat mounted on our BBi Seat Base & Slider Kit. We finished it off by dialing in the suspension with our corner balance and alignment setup.

Michelin Track Connect: Real Tire Telemetry for All Enthusiasts

Targeting ideal tire pressures and monitoring temps has been a bit vague and largely based on experience and feel. Race teams have been collecting and working with such data for decades as its crucial in ensuring consistency, safety and maximum performance. Michelin is now bringing this technology to use with Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires in a simple, easy to use package and they call it Michelin Track Connect.

We now have a simple app paired to some sensors that monitor tire pressures, temps. The app logs tire heat cycling, pressure changes and driving style. This data is then use to create RECOMMENDATIONS on how to properly set tire pressures per tire to keep the tire within the most optimal operating range, as Michelin engineers intended. This takes out a lot of guess work, provides you with a wealth of information and analysis and helps you keep your tires within the ideal range of operation.

Michelin has reached the perfect balance of simplicity and effectiveness with this Track Connect technology. Inside the tires there is a small pocket for a sensor that is installed when tires are mounted. The sensor package, receiver and accessories are sold separately and are transferable tire to tire. The tires themselves are the standard Pilot Sport Cup 2 but merely need to be the “Connect” version with the pocket. Tire cost is up by around 15$ over the regular tire and the Track Connect package is 499$.

We are looking forward to this becoming the new industry standard of what tires should come with. The feedback and information collected with Michelin Track Connect is invaluable for beginners and advanced drivers alike!

More RaceBBi track days are coming up and we look forward to putting Track Connect to use with our customers and helping them gain confidence with their cars and local tracks!
