      Here's a short clip of my run 2 @ AAA Speedway with my Canon D550. This was my first time recording, so I still have a bit to learn. I'll be running this course again on the 26th, so I should have some better video then.

      The start is the parade lap usually starts slow, it is when things get rolling is where the fun starts. Vette drivers are aggressive, which you know is ok, but there is always that one owner who goes above and beyond.

      Yes, if you get the forged ones....a higher offset will have a less concave look. Lower offset will have a deeper concave look. The Audi on the Rotiform site is runnig 11s rear and 9s front I believe. So that concave look is not possible at all on the R. I am looking into a 9 rear and 8 front forged set.

      Those 9's should look good on the back. How come you're not doing 8.5's in the front?

      I put a set of 5mm spacers on back last week, thinking of getting a 8mm for the front.

      I added some 5mm spacers to the back, gonna order some 8mm for the front.



      Also, if any local LA peeps are in for a track event, I'll be running the Roval again this Sunday. The next Roval won't be until August.

      This past Sunday was my 3rd HPDE of the season back @AAA Speedway Roval, the next one isn’t until August. I have to say this event went really well for me; I was able to shave off 4 seconds from January’s 2:09.8 to 2:05.8 this go round. In January I had a friend ride with me and had my back seats in. This time I removed my back seats, had no passenger, and started to work on my tire pressures. The car feels nice with no back seat.

      I ran all day with a new Scoobie and M3 which had me pretty surprised since I have the least horsepower on a fast track, although as you might know, it’s not always about horsepower.

      Current Mods:

      • KW Clubsports
      • Haldex without switch
      • Borla Exhaust
      • VF Intake and all 3 VF Mounts with BFI Insert (90 durometer)
      • Nitto NT01’s on Stock Boat Anchors
      • OEM Rotors with painted hats/EBC Yellowstuff Pads/Motul RBF600/USP lines/Tyrol Stiffening



      Next on the Mod list is either an ECU/DSG Tune or some Lightweight race wheels.

      This time I decided to not play any music so you could hear the sweet sounds of the VR6 and Borla combo. There’s still some wind at times, but I plan on getting a remote mic for my Canon, that should help with the wind.

      I finally get passed the M3 at the end of the video, then, down the straight I pointed him back by.







      * edit: added brake mods

      The sound is amazing (to my ears anyway) as well.

      Do you notice the performance gains that Borla claims their exhaust adds? Considering you've tracked your car (not sure if you tracked it pre-borla or not), you should have a pretty good idea.

      The VF Intake/Borla combo just seems to help the car rev more freely, and made it feel slightly lighter/quicker, nothing major but still noticeable. I'd imagine these mods will really help the ECU tune when I get it.

      I've noticed that after installing my intake, although I went the AFE route and have an idea of what you mean in terms of throttle response.

      One of my buddies, who works for vdub and actually sells R32 actually suggested that when I got the car.

      "Get an intake first" to help the car breathe easier then "get an exhaust" to help it release air easier. Then get the chip/tune to give the chip the hardware to work with and really open up those mods.

      Thanks for the reply. God I can't wait. lol.
