Had a lot of fun on these a couple of years ago http://www.carlimits.com/ :mrgreen: Remember to fit your oldest and most worn tyres, assuming you have a change of rubber wear of course!

The Car Limits guys recommend you put 50psi in the tyres but a Civic still managed to graunch one of his front wheel rims on the day we were there but your GT-Four should be OK. I used a set of Yokohama A048 cut slicks and they were great due to the stiffer sidewalls not rolling over so much as a standard road tyre :)
