      Heard a little about this car from a friend that recently was in the shop to get his TT-RS upgraded. Can't wait to see how this monster progresses.

      Only Stage 4? How disappointing, I was hoping for Stage Plaid!

      Never tried teh RE11's but the potenzas suck. They don't last, they dont grip, and their sidewalls are hard as hell and noisy. After trying a set out on an M3 for two years all I have say is

      The BFG MaxR now features upgraded TT RS uprights!

      The uprights correct problems created from lowering the car. Basically as you start lowering, you have a tendency to alter the stock geometry in a negative way, if you go too far, which can introduce bump steer. The TT RS suspension was designed to be lower than the Golf R, so a lower upright was created which helps correct some of the geometry alterations.

      Another added benefit of the uprights is strength and weight. The TT RS uprights are much stronger (we've actually seen the OEM GTI parts crack on our race cars) and they drop a healthy 4 LBS on each front wheel (from 10lbs to 6lbs).

      Not too bad!

      Light: TT RS
      Dark: Golf R




      Stock Weight:
