If 275/30/19 works, never thought about it, then I can now have a fast square setup with the FALKEN AZENIS RT660 (if I lower the rear and 275/35/19 no longer fits.
I don't think it would be short at all. 25.5" diameter is pretty standard.

I'd say give it a try. You'll be able to run the car lower as well which would be beneficial. If you need to raise it back up to run other tires, that's a very quick and easy thing to do.
Does raising it few mm change the alignment?

I would rather run the 275/35/19 on the 10.5" rim. If I run two different wheels (two 9.5" fronts) the yes I an try the square square (wheels and tires)

This is all future, I have enough inventory in the basement to last this summer

Ever so slightly, yes.

Upon reinspection I am 99% sure I have a flat spot (I only inspected one tire so I may in fact have more than one tire impacted). There's a patch of tread that is clearly more worn that the rest of the tire.

Tires still have good amount of tread life. Any harm in continuing to run these?

Agreed, but take it easy on the outlap and see how bad the vibration/shaking is. You could cause other issues at higher speeds.

I guess just always remember to go over every arm before each event just to make sure. Shit happens.
Gonna miss this car

Its hard to tell exactly, but its an odd type of failure. It almost looks like a manufacturing flaw in the part itself. In the image showing the cross section the darker regions of if look like porosity in the casting (looks like a cast part not extruded, which is also strange to me). Looks like a brittle fracture in the way it broke. Do you know if it was an impact or something that lead to the failure?

After you charge your phone, you should put the tire on the rear and send it...after a proper warm up lap to ensure you don't shake the car apart...

Don't try to make up time at Phil Hill. Don't lift at the bus stop. The last turn is a common spin spot on exit. There is an outdoor shower so bring a pair of trunks. It feels amazing at the end of the day.

Have fun!

There a short braking zone before bus stop. I get on gas at right side curbing and don't lift until Riverside where I feather throttle and then WOT until braking zone for Phil Hill. Maybe that clarifies it?

WOT from Riverside to Phil Hill:

I asked that too but got no answer. I am very curious as I have this kit to install. I do know of an A90 supra that has the bolts come loose during sessions and re tightens them (time attack car). I wonder if this is also the case on an e92 if driven hard enough. I worry that some people have these parts and nothing goes wrong, but is that because really they are not being pushed hard enough to induce these issues?

I've always though bus stop was that kink where everyone flies over the dirt.

Those with aftermarket seats and a full interior and a secondary GoPro, where do you put your second GoPro?

I know tackform makes some good seat mounts for an alt view, but with some Recaro Sportsters it won't work with them anymore. I thought about interior suction cup mount for the rear 1/3 window.

Thoughts?

Put it on the rear window via suction cup and maybe add a short arm/extension if needed. It'll be similar to having it over your shoulder. I did that when I borrowed a buddy's Mustang:
