I am no longer worried about wheel failure then.


I don't need brakes for autox so I will attend We will have matching wheels and they can SNUGGLE

Details on autox? Seriously, I will attend. What is the car club?

Whats your alignment like? I've pulled 10k out of a set of MT's on a 3200 pound car.

My current set has around 1500 miles on them and still look new on our string alignment.

Awww ****!!!

Got my TSE BBK today!! **** looks GOOD. I am pleased that the friction surface came pre-safety wired.

Also, got a full swap out of my hydramist from FM. They have really come through with my issues with the system.

Hopefully by week end I will have the BBK and hydramist working!!!!! Plan is to paint the silver caps on my plain rear rotors black with some VHT caliper paint.

Side note my car raped some random turbo IS300 tonight. I know nothing about IS cars but their turbo sounded awesome. I <3 turbos! Car was fast but lost prob because it had 4 people in it or else it may have been a different story haha. Then again my top was down so nyah nyah.

Also, I am doing an autox this saturday AM. At 8AM. *******. Joy.

Do not mess with your car anymore other than the alignment. Last thing you want is major changes right before an event with little or no testing. What alignment settings are you going with?

Hmm? No BBK? I am just doing an autox. I drive faster in my parking garage. Regarding power, I will detune my timing map and lower redline to 7000 for engine pampering. I will also stick a potato in my exhaust.

RE alignment, not sure. I drive my car around a lot- almost every day and don't want to murder my lovely new RS3s. 1/16th toe in on rear, neutral toe front? camber 1.5*rear, 1.7* front? shitloads of caster?

The brake kit is honestly very easy to install, if you tackle that Wednesday and/or Thursday night, then test on Friday, I think you'll be fine. I definitely wouldn't mess with the Hydra. That's asking for a disabled car on Saturday morning.

Remember: Nothing needs to be cut for the BBBK (Biggest Big Brake Kit).

EDIT: gay joke because I think your car is ******* awesome.

The fact that it is sort of gay-late-80s/90s-aquaMarine. . . well. . . makes a stronger mushroom tattoo I suppose.

OK Got aligned and what a difference. Huzzah. 2.8* rear, 1.8* front, 0" toe front/rear, max caster.

Time to prep for my brake install.
