Tapeworm aluminum rims and disk on the rear, you could possibly lose up to 50 pounds of weight that the trans is trying to manage. I don’t know about you but on my car 998 I can lock up the rears pretty easily with the drums.
What have you guys got against 4 lug? Drums are only 20 a piece, And very strong. I would change only 1 or 2 a year....
Where can said Chromoly Centers be sourced???
There was talk a while back about allowing them, but they were not readily available.
I think you could do disks way cheaper than that. 500 seems like a realistic number. Maybe put a limit on the amount of pistons you can run per wheel. The steel wheel thing is due to the loss of mass production and big runs. Now, it seems the offset 5 lugs are only done in small batches and rarely more than once a year. Because of that, the production costs are higher.
I remember working a Yokohama pit back in the day when they even had extra rims and tires for anyone who needed one that stopped in their pit, even if on competitor's tires. I don't ever remember a 4 lug being available and they were servicing a lot of 9 cars.Ok, I'll bite...how many of you have actually stopped at somebody elses pit and "borrowed" a tire?
