      Nitto NT-01 have been on backorder for a year now. Methinks they are being discontinued.

      I've heard the same thing. At that price, might as well get Hoosiers and call it a day.




      ALL track days are car shows.

      I've thought of that, but worried they would roll or scratch the wheel face, even with covers. I was thinking of a jig with a pipe running through them with spacers.

      Yup. Counterweights and all. Don't see how that impacts the strut issue.

      On a side note, NT-01 has been unavailable for months. Any rumors on Nitto introducing a new tire?

      Great discussion!

      Although I appreciate the direction this conversation has taken for the benefit of future readers, I should reiterate something. These will be separate track wheels/tires. I...

      Agreed. But it's possible to hang a corner out on track days and fully extend the suspension. And those dampers are $$$ to replace.

      I got the Interlagos, 18x9.5 ET53. The entire country is out of stock of black. I wonder if TSW stopped making them.

      I'm surprised with BB's and Smack's experience with inner clearance. At full...

      Thanx for the advice.

      First, these are track-only tires. Most of the time I'm driving 30-40" to the event. I was once caught in a downpour coming home from the track in the RS-3s. I had to be...

      Tire woes.

      See my recent post about Rcomps.

      NT01 275/35-18 has been out of stock throughout the US for months. An email from Nitto says they don't have an ETA on availability.

      2 options:

      R-Comp advice needed

      The TT-RS is almost exclusively a track car. I just bought a set of TSW Interlagos 9.5" wide to replace my old 8.5" wide track wheels. I want to put 275mm rubber all around.

      I'm on my second set...

      Just ordered a set of Interlagos, 18x9.5. Black has been OOS throughout the country for a year, so I settled on silver.

      BB & Smack,
      - Is the center bore 57.1mm, or do I need rings?
      - Where did...

      Domm, the manual is not accurate for the TTRS. Ever looked for pictures of the tow hook mount?

      On the long hold for the RS, it says "Warning restricted stability". You're good to go. As someone...

      No one makes or sells a 4-sensor module. This means either:

      - The module works with only 4 sensors attached.
      - Everyone who buys a rear-only kit is getting screwed.

      Bingo!

      When I got the unit I figured the 3rd port was for the front sensors, and it would auto configure. Silly rabbit! BTW, my module has "PA66GF15" written on it. At the base where the ports...

      Agree with the medic. Turn off stability control. Even with it completely off, it's hard to kill yourself in this car. The only reason I'd use the 1st setting (single press) is if you've got a...
