My daughter and I are back racing the GTI. It's been in the family since it came home from the dealer in '84. It was my mom's, then my dad's, then became a commuter for my brother-in-law, then abandoned behind his barn. About five years ago my son and I went over with a new battery and stole it from behind the barn. He wrenched it back into "shape" and started racing it HStock.
Once he went off to college it sat behind our barn. Now my daughter has turned 16 it's back out tearing it up!!
So, the question: I use to race my R32 in DStock when my son was racing the GTI. Due to some needed mods my R is now DSP which I'd love to enter but it's in a different run group than HStock in the local events and she and I wouldn't be running together. So, now we're dual-driving the GTI in HStock and loving it!! This car is still strong and a boat-load of fun.
We have stiff dampers, and a massive FSB, but we're running street rubber on snowflakes. I'm consistently placing 2nd and really want to catch that XB!! So, I need RComp rubber on some light wheels. But it looks like nobody's racing on 14's anymore and the used market is bleak.
So, here's a cast out to the masses looking for some lightweight 14's and a request as to what tire size would work on 14s on a stock MK1.
Any help appreciated!
