Well the track is the only thing, and I mean the only thing that was pretty good at Chuckwalla. The surface is nice and smooth, and doesn't chew tires up like Big Willow. They still need to seal or do something about the dirt around the edges of the track, I got blasted by some dirt squals a few times. Almost ate it coming around turn 9 into 10, the off camber turn, I went in carrying way too much speed on my second session, came out shallow on 9, so I had to stand it up and pull a Valentino Rossi at Laguna's Corkscrew, jump the curbing, cut the apex in the dirt, went back across the track and into the dirt on the other side. It was scary, as I thought the dirt was really soft and I was was going to dig in. Just kept downshifting and using rear brake and got it stopped.
The Pilot Pures handled everything I tossed at them, including the dirt. Got a little choppy in the texture in the bowl taking the inside line, but they still held at full lean angle. So far I really like them.
If your going to Chuckwalla bring a shade, and something heavy to tie it down with. I got sun burned on the back of my neck and face, arms. Also bring a lot of water and food. I didn't eat from the vendor they had, but it looked kind of shady anyways. I think it'll be a while until I go back there, until they make some facilities or something. Paying the extra money for Auto Club is worth it IMO.
How did everyone else do?
