Ya the 125 shot that I backed off from lurched the car to the left hard and made me real nervous as I tried to fight torque steering to keep it straight. I'm sure the offset wheels I put on have something to do with that also. The offset puts the extra width of the 18/50/265 tire it calls for to the inside. I didnt want to shell out the extra $1500 for the tires yet with these $245 OEM Goodyear RSA'* near new.... so I'm probably running a little pigeon toed right now. The reason for the offsets is to keep the wider rubber inside the fenderwells so I can drop front end down low when the new air bag struts get installed. They are being custom made and DOT certified. If you look at pics of my wheels you can see how they wrap around the front disc calipers and set tires in a little. I can barely fit a credit card between the wheel and caliper. Im thinking of putting the Goodyears back on my OEM mags for the track. Here'* pic of wheel(ya their filty...winter doesnt want to give up and I live where asphalt is a luxury.
Yeah GXP thos rims you have are mighty deep. very nice indeed. I am still pretty happy with the look of the OEM GXP rims for now. I am getting my windows tinted today so that will be a nice touch. I would love to do another good run to about 140 but I am afraid its impossible due to the poor braking performance of this car. Do me a favor GXP upgrade your brakes on your car before you really try any crazy stuff. I am telling you from experience our brakes are crap for high speed braking.
