Amazing man. You really show out for us magnetic cars.
So do you not have to get AP rear brakes? Or do you adjust the brake bias a certain way(if such thing is relevant in this case)?
Man the amount of keyboard warriors freaking out about stock rear brakes but i matched the same cobalt xr1 front.As per AP Racing, the GT350 Kit is bias matched to the factory rear brakes with no changes. I was unsure but it has turned out to be true.

the real racers, such as this forum, are supportive as usual lol
Right. TBH the factory Shelby brakes are outstanding in their own right. You and I made the switch to take out unsprung and rotational weight (lighter calipers/rotors, smaller/lighter wheels/tires). The sweetener is the availability of take-off slicks with the move to 18” wheels. Bigger ain’t always better.
Depends on the specific tire, your setup, and how hard you run them. I've worn the big 315/705/19s out in one afternoon - too hot and not enough camber.Do you find that they wear out or heat cycle out?
Oh yeah. IME at COTA, a fresh take off is about 3 seconds a lap faster than a sticker set of Goodyear 3Rs and even very worn out - they're still a second or so faster. See the video above. You can't get much closer to end of life than that. If it was a hot day - they would have been toast. But fortunately, this was a nice 65 degree January dayWow, that's really good $ per day. Looks like 18" wheels just jumped to the top of my wish list. I'm sure they're still faster than 200tw even on day 4.
ing to figure out what NASA class this car will be in.
Over winter cars going in for the fp350s abs module and titanium exhaust, lexan rear and 1/4 windows then try to take more weight off. Trying to figure out what NASA class this car will be in.
