However I will admit that my father just bought a $450K car and I think it's insane to spend that much money on a car,...

I know that every automatic transmission owner (DCT, WHATEVER) makes a valid point when they correctly state that manuals transmissions are often a bit slower at the racetrack, and if ultimate...

I'd probably pick based on the sort of miles I planned on doing in the car, and also if I intended to build it faster.

If I drive a lot of street miles, I'd choose the one with lower miles.

Dennis did in fact try larger headers (at least on the dyno not certain if at the strip also) and it made his car weaker or slower, he went back to 1 3/4.

My experience has been that negative camber doesn't really cause much excessive wear. It's the toe that wears them a bunch.

My last set of tires were balded mostly on the street and the wear was...

I do not sense any significant straight line improvement in traction going from the R888 to the R888R.

That doesn't mean I'm disappointed at all. Just an FYI.

I can still kill the rear tires...

Let me save you a lot of trouble. Buy Kooks 1 and 7/8 inch coated catted headers from Maryland speed. It took a lot of research me to arrive at that conclusion and I'm pretty cheap , trust me it's...

My car on E85 has somewhere in the 510rwhp range but also has 4.10s.

They certainly hook up much better than my very worn old R888s but I still killed them off completely during a 25-60 mph roll...

With a 60mph fan on my car it dynoed 5 more hp going to the Halltech from a Vararam. The fit and finish difference,...

I've never auto-crossed but I'll give you my opinion anyways.

1) You turn in too late. You literally should aim for that inner cone and use the throttle to just push outside of it. Like when you...

None. Seriously.

I have front R888Rs but my rear R888s are completely bald until the replacement R888Rs arrive in a week or two.

And I likely won't get proper track time until the Fall.
