plus @XHILR8N!, @Plackslayer, @boxerman, @iDuc, @invictusmaneo. Very capable cars as a road and track car. IDuc used his as a daily driver and regularly ran on Laguna Seca and other Cali tracks. Only car that I've used on track driving across country without a trailer or tire changes. My other cars seemed to be something that I trailers to the track, changed tires, adjusted the shocks, arb's, brake pads .. then reversed. Both Evora's drive and drive, maybe not chasing the best lap times anymore, but neither am I fighting an oversteer, or understeer issue.
I still have BOTH my 2011 NA Evora, and 2017 Mclaren 570S.Someone on here has a McLaren 570 I believe as well, said the Evora a more enjoyable drive on track. The power and balance.
I was wondering the same thing. I understand the urge to tape off front facing areas as 100+ MPH collisions with anything- however small- on track could cause trouble for the paint. No idea what the concerns are for wheels though, and I've tracked on plenty of "expensive" sets (OE or otherwise).What am I missing? What risk is there to the wheels unless you blow a tire???
Yes they dilemma and why I haven pulled trigger on my 410 setup.Problem is, with the loss of the R888 275/40R18 tire, nothing really exists any more to properly fit a set of TD1.3 18 inch setups. 235/40R18 at 25.5 OD and 275/40R18 at 26.7 gave our cars a perfect rake. We are now stuck with the 275/35R18 with an OD of 25.6. I ran these before the 40 series became available. I instantly like the 275/40R18 better. The offset makes finding a set of wheels for this vehicle very challenging. I know my OD's , widths etc quite well, but wheel offsets are a different story.
ET 52 (18's) ET55 (19's) and ET 69 roughly for the 19/20 combo are real tough ones. Expensive enough using stock wheels although used cast sets with a few dings are not so bad, but going custom quickly gets you over $2000 at a minimum. Maybe folks that have found solutions can add to our list of choices. Hopefully I will get lucky and Tire Rack has 275/40R18's in stock one more time.
Forget street tires. I'd love to know what folks run at the track. Michelin Cup @?? Toyo R888, 888r?? Hoosiers.... Nitto supposedly makes a size for us but haven'yt tried them. I want to stay at least with the R888,R888r level of grip I am used to. Currently I run Toyo R888r front in size 235/40R18, Rear Toyo R888 in size 275/40R18. The R888's have been discontinued but I have been able to source them thus far.
If forced to lose an inch of OD going to a 275/35R18 at 25.5 instead of 26.5-26.7, what would be the best fronts to run to maintain the stagger and rake???
