No issues with those wheels and 235/40/17 tires. Youíll have about 9 mm clearance to the front sprint perch on stock camber on a tire like the gt radial champiro sx2. A little bit of poke.

FWIW I never saw any timing compensation tables on the 1st gen that referenced oil temps. Coolant temps, yes. IAT, yes. But not oil temps.

This was using romraider and OFT. 2nd gen may be...

Yeah that PP for $1200 is a bargain! Very fair pricing overall from Toyota on the GR Corolla (and the GR86 for that matter).

For me, the bolded part above was my reason. As long as my UOAs were coming out clean, why bother? It's expending resources to solve a problem that doesn't exist.

Track Comparison: S2000 CR vs. Gen 2 BRZ

Track comparison, S2000 CR vs. gen 2 BRZ. I like that both cars had good drivers, were on the same tires, and had typical enthusiast-level track mods.

Yeah that's some of the most liberal language I've seen from a car manufacturer re. track days. We'll see how this plays out in practice since they say they'll evaluate on a case-by-case basis.
