Speaking from experience.
Don't track much, maybe a few times a year. So you have some experience with Kevlar clutch discs in the DCT transmission, wet clutches?

Very nice Drew.

Did you get the SSP trans cooler also?

You are going to tear it up at the airstrip event. Have fun!

Amazing! I always enjoy seeing the possibilities of what can be done with this motor and the DCT.

Your car is just plain sick to begin with but other than the wheels, you pretty much have the ultimate sleeper lol

Thanks man, love your car as well. The MORR wheels do take away the sleeper look, but it's well worth it, they look so damn good with the MR!

true J, but when your dealing with a 30/35 side wall, theres barely a side wall for it to matter. plus track tires arent designed to wrinkle like a DR
