Yep the 245 is now for sale. I have ordered a set as well for my ST2 LS1 Miata. I need more wheels.

And FWIW I have large flares so don't plan on using me as a fitment check data point.

Wow, I just realized we may have met previously. I think we took UTSA's first FSAE car there in 1994. We were pitted a couple of spots down, across the paddock road from UT Austin.

Mine are rubbing on my swaybar. Anyway it is a really easy fix. I think there is a thread about it somewhere around here. I might be wrong on the PVC diameter, but essentially you just cut the pipe...

FWIW it is easy to make steering rack stops from a piece of SCH-40 PVC pipe (2" IIRC). Takes less than 30 minutes to fab and install. Easy peasy.

Also not liking that protruding spoke design. It seems to me that the spokes would get in the way of the tool arm, and in the way of the tire bead as it rolls on and off the wheel.

Even the 225/45-15 NT-01s (on 9" wheels) will get pretty warm with 300 HP. If I push the car, I can feel the grip falling off after 4-5 laps, and the tire temps are pretty warm when checked right...

+1 on DTC 60 instead of DTC 70. For me, the initial bite on the 70s makes it too easy to flat spot tires. I also use DTC 60 rears with the sport rotors and stock calipers.

That is the million-dollar question. The simple answer is, it depends. At higher speed tracks one would be better off with more power (add ballast) to hit higher top speeds on long straights. At low...
