Default Re: Car Thread!

Thanks guys.

Yeah Falkens dumb of me not to go with them in the first place. Their lovely they are reinforced which the kumho's werent. They grip quite good better than the kumho's, I was gonna go with the Ziex-912 which is newer but I read that it is too soft.

RT-615's are nice, how much thread is remaining on yours? They are $164 each on my tire size.

Got teh video too but youtube was mean and it took for ever to upload so I canceled ill try again tomorrow.

I probably have like 3cm at most on the inside tread blocks and 5cm roughly on the outer tread blocks. Heh...negative camber. Yeah, I've worn them way past their tread markers. Usually RT-615's last around 12,000 maximum before you should replace them, but time and financial problems have prevented me from doing so.

They're amazing tires though. The grip they provide is incredible. A few years ago, these were THE autocross tires to have and even today Team Falken uses these for all their sponsored drift cars. The only downside is that the rubber is really soft (treadwear rating is 200AA) and the threshold limit is quite a bitch. Simply put, once the tires heat up to maximum operating temperature they're greasy and it's easy to lose a bit of traction.

Hah, don't bother with YouTube. Vimeo > YouTube. 'Nuff said.

What tires are you getting next?? You sticking with Falken?? I read the Fk's are pretty good.

Anyways I got the video up. Ignor the whining dog in the background.

I'm probably going to get some wheels next and wrap those in Dunlop Direzza Z1 Sport Star Specs.

The exhaust doesn't sound bad, it's a pretty throaty growl. Now drop the car and get yourself some Volk TE37s or Work 3-piece Meisters and stance the car. I've seen some stanced Scion tCs around my school and I must say...looks quite good.

Oh and this exhaust > yours.

Ah I see. Just the standard strut/spring combo or are you going the whole nine yards with coilovers and such?

I say get coilovers and tuck the tires a little bit. I wish I went that route, I love that stance.

One thing you will learn with cars, the parts are expensive. You can go the local pick n pull and get one though.
