LOL. Damn autocorrect got me.
I'm going Alfa Romeo Giulia, baby!
I have been using the Continental ExtremeContact Sport Plus for 2,000 miles.
They are a very pleasant-handling tire (quasi-aggressive street driving).
Predictable performance on dry,...
I have autocrossed in a 2000 beetle turbo. You are probably crazy. I know that I am.
No one to help here?
I'm not familiar with the Celica, so I will try to answer in general terms.

It's been a while since I had a Mk2 to play with, but, I recall that gap as normal on US models (while the car is sitting on its suspension).
Well done. Best autocross news in years. Keep it up.
I've run 225/50X16 on 16X6.5 rims. You should have very little or no speedo error. The rim width is adequate (within safety recommendations) for that tire.
I used Tokico Illuminas for 10 years in a Mark II GTi for street and autocross. I liked them very much. Over the 10 year span, 4 of the shocks did develope leaks at various times, and were...
