      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.

      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?

      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.


      Not that I doubt you...

      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...

      If you're thinking of Carbotech, you may want to start out with XP10 on the front. Carbotech is great for not only lack of fade, but also a very progressive feel and ease of modulation. However,...

      If you have a chance, I would take an electric sander with garnet paper to the rotors to loosen up the glaze. That will optimize the 2400 miles you put on it. Lightly ride the brakes here and there...

      That's interesting. I noticed a significant benefit from just going to better pads on the stock rotors. Care to elaborate?
