Can you recommend a breaker bar that will folder up and fit in the car for track weekends?

Can you explain how this works?

Definitely. But just curious if folks have found them any cheaper... perhaps without the unnecessary o-ring?

Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 (TireRack) - $2080

Pirelli P Zero Trofeo R - $2326

$246 more than MPSC2 and $214 more than the Dunlops. Does anyone know a cheaper source for the Trofeos?

I have been told that while trofeo R are stickier, they heat Cycle out before the tread is gone and are very sensitive to tire pressures. When they are perfect, the grip is great. But getting it perfect is tough

I've not tired the Trofeo R on the GT3, but did not have any issues on my Cayman running them. Used them for the cold days of last season (about 40F ambient) - once warmed up they were fantastic. Can't compare to the MPSC2s until next season.

Yes, I picked one up a few weeks back - got sick of having an unreliable gauge on the Inflator. So far so good. If you buy it from Amazon as the seller, even though it says out of stock, they ship it out in a couple of days for the $127 price.
