Damn these things really are pigs. I'm thinking that I'm around 3325# range with my interior gutting/race seats, exhaust & AG battery.

Crazy that my mostly full interior F80 was 3450 :

Typo... I meant 3325# haha

Yeah the F80 was DCT and I was surprised when I had it corner balanced, issue is that you can't really get much weight out of them without gutting the interior (OEM lithium batteries, aluminum everywhere, etc).

My stock F80 CS weighs 3,494. Listed curb weight. Stock F80's should be clocking in closer to 3,600

At Laguna my NT01 pressures rose nearly twice as much as my PS4s.

The PS4s I'd just drop pressures 5psi (28f/30r) before session 1 and that usually worked out pretty good.

So I tried the same thing on the NT01s.
But the NT01s got slippery at the very end of the session.
When got to the paddock and checked they were 42psi.

Lowered to 36, then went out for session 2.
Tires didn't get slippery, at all.
Came in from session 2, checked again and they were 38psi, so I lowered to 36 again and left them there the rest of the day.

If you're willing and able to ship. Yes! Other wise hooray for someone local! Surprised the wheel buyer didn't take them.

He is using them for HPDE but isn't ready for slicks yet. I posted them up for $900. They got used for one day and are almost new, wish I could just use them.

I just shipped a set for $100 but that was much closer than you are.

How has the REVSHIFT stuff been treating guys? Any good/bad/ugly to report? Forget the 95A trans mounts (know they're high). How about the 80A's? VS new OEM mounts. Thanks!

I run my NT01's at 35 with a 275 square setup. On my car thats as low as you can go before the sidewall starts to roll over. 35-36 is the sweet spot IMO.

Agreed, that sidewall rollover issue is what sticks out to me.

I actually went slightly quicker when the tires were at 38psi rather than 36psi after the sessions, but there are too many other variables that can explain that away.
The point is, the tires weren't misbehaving at 38 so I'll let them sneak up there until they do misbehave.

I have 80A and they're fine. Very manageable.

There is some real $$ in that car. Full Motec + drenth. $85k is probably pretty reasonable depending on how fresh everything is.

Holy shit that front ducting and air intake system is wild, can't imagine the $ invested in the build... The livery is badass too.
