      I am running UM for a couple of weeks now and did my first track day on it yesterday. I really like the settings (timing, boost, no lift shift timing, launch boost) so I can really set it up to my...

      You should be able to get -1.5, or even a bit more, front camber on the 8J TT using the lower ball joint nuts. Maybe the shop does not know about that? Do they work on TT's and VW Golf's often...

      240 is not bad and once you start to push, it would be interesting to see how the system copes. On the a stock TT RS I regularly see 240-260F after a solid 20 minute session on 80-90F days. 260 is...

      The VW Motorsport torque mount works great to make the shifts crisp without a noticeable increase in NVH. That being said, the clunk may be due to subframe shift; you may want to consider the...

      I agree - anything more aggressive than a 9.5et48 will get sketchy and ride height, camber and tire size will play a role in clearance. Here is a picture of my 18x9.5et52 with 275/35/18 tires ; I am...

      I don't know much about what offsets work on a CC. However, on my TT RS I have used 18x9et46 Forgestar CF5 without any brake clearance issues. The VMR V710 in 18x8.5et45 DO NOT clear the stock RS...
