    btw does the magnetic suspension change anything? I swear I can't tell a difference on the street or the track.

    Pump the front pressures way up on the track. Get them to around 40-42psi hot...

    19.9 lbs for the interlagos
    21.05 lbs for nurburgring
    Per TSW website

    I'm currently running the interlagos 18x9.5" square set up for track use.

    Damn that's light. Are they the same offset and back spacing on all 4 corners? If so, what are those numbers so I can get the right ones.

    I'm pretty sure they are custom machined to +41 all the way around. No spacers. Currently running 275/40/18 nitto NT01s and loving them. Got them through Ben at WeaponX.

    Yep, square setup. I was running TSW Nurburgrings in 18x9.5". No spacers, no rubbing with 275 width Hankook slicks...

    Thanks Jim. I was going to cheap out and get repro's but the TSW Interlagos are so light (~20 vs. 28 lbs.) I'm going to order those. I'm thinking Continental Sport Cups 275/35/18 as Scrubs are stupid cheap as in $400 - $500 shipped per set. I ran these on the SRT8 and they're very sticky under heavy cars......like ours.

    Team Dynamics should also be available now in V2 sizing

    Been running them on my V1 with Grand Am Conti scrubs for a while now...

    I have 8 Hankook Z214 C91 slicks in the 275/35 18 size. They are Hankook's softest slick compound. A friend of mine who races C6 Vettes said they wear almost as good as an R6 or Hankook's C51s. I ran one event and found no noticeable wear...

    Ive been running Team Dynamics 18 x 10 square set-up for a while now and love them. Super strong and light. Ive been running them for two seasons of racing in the Cadillac Challenge and they have held up really well.
