I got this today.

Brian,
I appologise for the delay in my response.
I am 80% certain the LSD is a Torsen Differential but I am awaiting details including torque transfer details.
Concerning tires; I will ask SCCA about the regulations because 30 rated tires are not street legal (if I understand the regulations correctly) and are softer than the minimum rating 60 as supplied by Yokohama on our Sportspack 048 tire. If SCCA do not require street legal tires then we will work with Yokohama to produce a more competitive tire than is currently available from Kumho/Hoosier.
Regards,
Tony

I will forward the SCCA regs to him about the tires. But does anybody know if D.O.T. legal tire is one and the same as a street legal tire. Are there tread and compound restrictions?

Thats what I thought. So the 60 tread wear rating is probably a compromise for real street use while not overheating and last long enough.... what ever that is.

It still won't be as fast as the Hoosier/Kuhmo offerings. I hope that 205 fits.
