You must not be familiar with autocross ;)
Even in SCCA, GTRs are not very competitive. I think there is 1 guy who is doing well with a fully built one if I recall.
GTR is huge physically and...
As stated, 18" Talladega wheels from my Golf R with 2 new dunlop all seasons and 2 with 50% tread (OEM tires). There is curb rash on them from the previous owner but I pulled them, cleaned them up as...
Wrong forum. Mkii r forum is what you want.
How do you like it compared to the mk6?
Nice wheels, and they do fit golf r.
what is your launching technique?
Just got back from a marathon today, 12 hours, 800 miles but picked up a set of 17x8 16.0lb OZ alleggerita HLT in black with 235/45/17 MPSS tires for a fantastic deal. Also have a spare 5th wheel...
some sort of pirelli scrub that the spec caymans use 245/620/17 (similar to a 40 series sidewall)
Not an ideal autocross tire, but we used them on my buddies BRZ with incredible results. Having a...
trying to find 17x8 wheels on craigslist for slicks
everyone wants crazy prices for banged up stock wheels, and 99% are 7.5 and not 8" wide.
Regarding the brakes, keep in mind the oem pads have a LOT of initial bite, while good for a wide variety of customers and initial "wow" factor, it usually means less modulation ability.
On the MK6, its about a 2-3 hour job on jack stands. 3 bolts to undo the drive shaft at the engine end, then the coupler bracket, slide it out and off to the side about 6" and pipe comes right out.
Getting the next round of dents taken out of this thing.
No clue, they were all the rage here for a while. I suggested them due to popularity and my love for carbotechs.
I had xp8 fronts and 1521 rears on a daily basis. Loved that setup, but lots of...
these do not match in any way.
Not trying to be rude but from your posts this is more of general small mods with budget in mind rather than having a goal of excellent handling.
Here is my list:
-Tires: Summer tires at a minimum, MPSS in the middle, 200tw tires being ideal
-Sway Bar: H&R or Hotchkis rear bar
-Competition Haldex controller
-pads: carbotech 1521s at a...
I think you need to do more research. If you're looking for ultimate handling, your list doesn't make sense to me.
H&R sway bar kit (front and rear) $471.90 :thumbup:
Control Arm bushings $60...
Ordered 4 pads, polish and sealant.
Still need to order a wheel brush, and clay.
Imo, the only thing that keeps the sti from excellent daily duty is the engine that needs high rpm for spool and power, and the resulting awful gas mileage. Oh and ludicus insurance rates.
No info, no stats, 1/10.
