I would've guessed the same thing, but I'm usually wrong about... well, just about everything I take a guess at.

Most from track riding, that kind of lean angle on the street is not something I generally do.
How do you get that with the cylinder head in the way? I've dragged a cylinder head before but nothing behind it touched down.

Speaking about Miatas, they are in town so watch out for them on the Dragon.
They tend to run over the double yellow.

Nah, the SL70 came with normal profile (and larger than the CT) tires.
