thanks for checking into this. Yes this is a shot of the right side, it had the same unusual wear pattern, just not as predominant as on the left side. Dunlop racing sent me a replacement tire, arrived yesterday, and this tire is shipping out today to Dunlop in Buffalo NY. Looking forward to their analysis. My mechanic/builder went to the guy he respects most in the field and his diagnosis was tire folding under the torque of at the wheel, this would happen on the the track only and probably not the street unless I was pushing hard. His solution: go to slicks on the track and this should solve the problem. Yesterday my slicks arrived, will post an update of their wear patterns (if any) after my weekend at Willow Springs in 2wks. If I see any similar wear patterns on the slicks I will chalk the tire & rim to look for tire movement.

I went through your other post to educate myself a bit more on your situation. Please mark your front and rear slicks (shoe white/ tire


etc.) to see if they could be slipping on the rim. The H2 is heavy and quite powerful, so slicks will be a great test to see the GPA's could have slipped also.
