I like my shaft seal + bushing idea better

I'll find a picture

Camber doesn't cause a lot of fire wear, toe does. As does sliding. My star specs look the same, but after a little over a season of track days. Stop drifting?

What is a season? I think the open lapping days at ORP are tearing them up good.

Also, did you not know this is a drift build? Duh.

All in all I really liked the star specs, I just want to try the RS3's. Ed has 2 fewer days than me on his, with a heavier car, and more power. Running faster times.

And you can still see outer tread.

3+ degrees causes a lot of tire wear.

Do you know what kind of tubing the manifold is made from. Looks like maybe ERW, and it looks like it may be cracking along the ERW weld? See how there's a line on the tube that is a slightly lighter shade of grey? I think that's a weld line of the tube?

I would do a grind and weld repair.

Did you build the manifold? Where'd you source the materials?

Ace does not specify if it is ERW. But I agree that there looks to be a weld line. I was thinking about drilling at the end of the crack. Cleaning really well, and just welding it back up. Probably wont even pull the manifold off the car.

Did you mean I would grind all the way through? I'm not even sure if the crack goes all the way through.

Shipping was $60.

Does tire rack ever have rebates or anything that I'm missing out on?

yeah sometimes there are rebates.

You can send in your receipt to a rep if/when they do a sale or rebate deal for those tires after you buy them. Usually they will honor it.

I didn't like rs3 because of the softer sidewall. Decent grip, though. I used a shorter sidewall, wider rim, and it was much better.

Heard back from ACE Race. Person I'm talking to says in 12 years hes seen a crack like that 1-2 times in mild steel never in stainless.

I really can break anything.

Drilling at both ends of the crack isn't a bad idea. I meant grind a shallow "v" in the crack to make it easier to weld and to ensure you get good penetration. You might find out how deep the crack is too.
