Nice build! I'm sure you'll love the SC

305's will come in handy with the extra power, I run 275f/305r RE-11's on my car and even with traction control completely off traction is amazing

Great day, shame an RX7 dumped oil over the entire track so only had limited runs. Also the go pros didn't work out.. You only get like 30 mins battery!! So fixing that up.
Haha small world!
Man that sux!
What times were you getting long/short track?
What did you think of the e92 at the track?

Tell me more about these, are these a track only tyre? I'm looking for something just for the track but it would be handy if they were the same width so I can rotate. I was thinking 265's all round. I also have to take a 19' due to the rotor's.

Do you mean as in mine (I didn't see any others), two of the instructors said it was like driving a Play Station game.. I would disagree with that. You always feel like it's within it's limits.. even though I wasn't driving smooth and pushing it past it's (and my own) limits. Ran a 60 second short.. only had one l

That exhaust setup sounds incredible. By far the best I've heard yet!

The RE-11 is in the ultra high performance range, I use them on the street and seem very capable as a track tyre, however if I was going to get a set of dedicated track rims I'd probably be going to a semi slick

There are 18"s that will fit over the Harrop BBK, I'm pretty sure their car has 18's with 275 semi slicks all round. You can contact Heath at Harrop or I can find out for you.
I know they ran their car at PI just over a week ago for some testing

Exhaust is great thanks Dave, glad I got the valved system, much more civilised for daily driving (and when the missus is in the car), but I still have it open quite a bit!

That's great news, they gave me the measurements which I sent to tyrerack who just said 'ehh you'll need a 19'.

Send me on his details, I'll ask.

Thanks, had a few compliments on the day.

I think it sounds great, just the right amount of rasp and very quite under 4k. But then it's like my child so hard to be subjective... It could be ugly as fk and I'd still think it looks cute.

Harrop brings in forgeline 1 piece/3pieces race wheels. If not mistaken, heath's m3 is running 18" GA3R

There are other selected 18" that will clear the bbk. Apex arc, Advan, Volks

Thanks, ill email Apex.

This was the rubber my mate recommended, any idea what the optimal width would be on the e92? 265/35?
