      these cars lose alot of power when they get hot, and they are inconsistent in power delivery. With A water injection setup they are more consistent and lose less power due to intake temps. They pull...

      Id run the r-comps (hoosier, BFG, or V710). They will have equal or better grip, take hard track abuse/heat , and they will weigh less. Problem would be the tire wear.

      I second the spindles. One of the best mods you can do to fix the bad front end geometry on the MKIV's.
