    I don’t drag race either just track day events. You will feel only improvement under braking. Remove guide pins for some extra negative front camber or get hard race lower ball joints and really get some negative camber. Rear obviously a camber kit

    used a 265 RS-RR then a 255 RE71 (class rules) and now a 275 RS-RR the a052 is definitely next.

    It's probably fine, the Type R TC car comes with 18" wheels https://hondanews.com/en-US/honda-a...ext-level-with-new-race-ready-civic-type-r-tc

    IMO (and others) the most brake cooling occurs from air flow and not heat sink. Air has to get through the rotor vanes and be expelled to actually cool the brakes and any limitation may decrease the effectiveness of the brakes. Using the wheels as a major heat sink is not really going to work. Hub, rotor, caliper and fluid yes but the wheel itself is a fair way away from the source of heat.
