Made a set of clear taillights. For my first set it came out decent. Definitely learned some things that will make my next set cleaner particularly were to cut to avoid any of the silicone showing on the inside edge like these

Testing out a new mic and recording some of the AWE Track edition exhaust
Great sounds, appreciate it. Catted and if so, with what? I have PRL catted w/AWE Track as Touring was too tame, not guttural. Only thing I’d include if doing similar vid (diff ext mic here) would be the random deceleration pops & burbles downshifting, even some upshifting. Not sure if yours does that as mine could be due to the Phearable2 tune with Race revision and FBOs. Regardless that spine tingling surprise aspect makes it so much more fun. Thanks again for sharing. Insert drone hater comments here as there’s some w/Track windows down in upper 2k range, goes away in 6th by 70 mph.

Thanks for the feedback :)


Running stock cat and tune here. I also came from the Touring edition but felt it was a bit too tame while ripping around the track. I do not daily drive my CTR, if I did I definitely would have stuck with the Touring. Track edition is a bit too rowdy for a daily imo.

Bob L runs reverse staggered, surely he’ll have insight.
I think we had a comms mixup - I have two different sets of wheels; a 19x8.5 set with wide tires (275/35), and an 18x9.5 set with 255/40 tires. I don't run them staggered; it's either-or.

275 on a 8.5 wide wheel?

Yup, for D-Street class in autocross. If you’re looking to get the same, be prepared to tip your tire guy handsomely. ;)

Eventually I got sick of not being able to mod my car in order to stay in D-Street, so I finally said “screw it” and added the mods I wanted anyway. As a result, I’m now in STU and am not required to use 8.5” wheels anymore. However, I’ll keep using them for the foreseeable future since my RT660’s have a lot of tread left on them.

My bad, sorry if misunderstood here.
