    255/40r/17 on forgestar 17x9 ET40 wheels

    These look great, did you happen to weigh the wheel or the wheel+tire combo before you installed?

    200tw tires for Track use

    1100?? For which sizes? For 17" rims the 245 and 255 are right around $220 a piece

    200tw tires for Track use

    Yeah, I asked them directly and was quoted 1560 for a set. It's definitely more than the Apex buy, which will probably be around 1k even if their other wheel prices are anything to go by.

    200tw tires for Track use

    ... so like I was saying it's either wait for Apex or the F14s 😂

    Initial impressions VWR Spring/Damper kit- the good and the *good

    That's really strange. I've experienced squeaks coming from the rear LCA bushing as well but you shouldn't have that issue with the Superpro ones. Swaybar endlinks would be my only other suggestion, I had one that felt tight but would shift under high steering angle

    Initial impressions VWR Spring/Damper kit- the good and the *good

    Surprised to hear about the pops and squeaks, especially seeing as you used new OEM mounts. Did you also change the bearings as well? Anything else in the front end change?

    200tw tires for Track use

    It shouldn't be this hard to run a 17x9, it sucks. I'm torn between waiting, which I was hoping to not have to do. It's either that or buy a set of F14 from Forgestar or buy a set of Advanti Storm S1 in 35 offset and just deal with 7mm spacer at each corner

    Is early March when the buy begins? If so, is there a timeframe from start of the group buy to expected delivery?

    So we can now confirm they look amazing, but how long until you guys will take my money in exchange for them? Asking for a friend

    Hey Geirsen, Just poking to see if there are any updates. Although it's only January, I know I'm already eager for spring track events here in the Northeast and that early April is going to be here before I know it. Thanks in advance!

    Shop for Wavetrac Install

    Hey guys, I'm quoting around a few shops in MA/NH/CT to get a wavetrac and clutch installed. Does anyone have specific experience at any shops with a wavetrac install? So far I've reached out to: -Excelerate Performance (CT) -Zak's Auto (NH) -Auto Engineering (MA)

    Konig Ampliform

    OEM wheel bolts use a ball seat on the bolt head. Most aftermarket wheels (like the ones here) use a conical seat bolt. You shouldn't need studs to make these wheels fit, just proper length conical bolts.

    What is the Difference between GTI and Golf R flywheel

    If you go to the Sachs website (they make the OEM flywheel) you can see some of the differences. If you look at the clutch discs you can see they have a slightly different OD and ID when comparing the GTI to the R. I'm not 100% sure that's the only difference, but it could be one reason. GTI...

    Not an OCD thing, you should always finish tightening with a torque wrench (y)

    Street Touring Hatchback (STH) discussion/setup

    I'll let you know when they're mounted. I have my snows on the car now, and the FK510s are going to be mounted on my autocross wheels which still have the A052s on them

    Street Touring Hatchback (STH) discussion/setup

    The Generals were great for the price. Sidewall was pretty soft but that made them pretty comfortable for a daily. They also wore extremely well for a summer tire, but they're 360tw if I remember correctly.

    Street Touring Hatchback (STH) discussion/setup

    I went with 235/45-17. They should fit nice and tight on the 8.5" rim. It was either these or the General GMax RS (which I had before) for daily use. They're both dirt cheap so I figured I'd try out the Falkens

    Street Touring Hatchback (STH) discussion/setup

    Not really an update, but just sold my daily set of wheels and tires and picked up a set of FK510s to throw on my 17x8.5 wheels to use as my new daily setup. Here's hoping Apex ramps up on the 17x9 group buy or else I'll have to get an order in with Forgestar 😑
