    3rd hole both sides works good for me but depending on your course layouts you may want it stiffer. -26 F :doh:

    I am moving from an ASP Boxster with a number of mods that make it uncomfortable to drive to events in (solid engine mounts, very stiff springs and damping). I am tires of switching to A7s for every event and moved to DS to make it easier. Is the Karcepts rear bar as noisy as people say around town? Is it really easy to adjust at an event? My GT3/Tarret bars were impossible to adjust at an event due to low ride height and access issues. It would be great to have something to change depending on conditions.

    sounds like me taking a break from MY03 SSM S2000 to DS :D. the rsb is definitely louder than the karcepts fsb & rsb on MY03 but as easy to adjust if needed.

    Life is too short to waste time changing tires! I much prefer interacting with with interesting autoxers.

    I made this decision in 2015. I decided it was time to simplify, to pick a car I could daily, autocross, and which traveled well to events. I went with an E92 M3 and really didn't look back until this winter when shit started hitting the fan. I've decided to sell and will get a car that hauls people, tires, and is fun to compete in. Enter a Type R.

    Have you made a decision on tire size yet? I think I am going with 255/35/19.

    I hope to see you at one of our events. The Iowa Region is a great club. As far as I know I have the only CTR in the club. Really looking forward to seeing how it (and I) will do.

    I have not made the decision yet. I think 255 or 265 can easily work on a 8.5" wheel.

    Who has found a good racing harness for the CTR that mounts without a harness bar? Hopefully, somebody makes one that snaps into the rear seat belt and feeds through the seat. It doesn't have to be race track safe, just something to anchor the driver a little better in the seat during autocross

    Whatever people will let me drive
    We had enough difficulty with overheating our front tires (we ran 285s) that we got into the habit of bringing a second set and swapping halfway through each session. I imagine a 255 (or 265) would have yet less heat tolerance than a 285, although I don't know if the difference would be enough to be noticeable.

    To be fair, we dual-drove our car and had small fields, and thus pretty small gaps (usually not much more than five minutes) between runs.

    I think at large, full capacity events, the short turnaround with co-drivers is less a concern but I'd seriously wonder whether the crazed wheel swap front to rear with spray would not be the ticket, rather than a third pair of wheels as you know the rears probably get very little heat.
