I'm still behind the curve in FSP, but working to get up to speed. Probably could have gotten competitive locally is ST, but those pesky '89 civics are very quick anywhere else.
In hot weather certain tires get greasy, so you hit them with water to cool them down. Also R-comps with two driver cars can get very hot to. After a couple of hot runs, you can feel the difference, literally put your hand on the tire tread after the run. Tires like the Azenis, IIRC, were particularly sensitive to getting greasy. Lately, I've had trouble getting enough heat in my rear tires, so haven't had to bust out a sprayer yet.
