Anyone know if it's possible to get the duct bracket with the sprint kit? I'm just curious, I can understand why they wouldn't include it, but making it an upgrade might be an option that would sell.

Daniel seems a lot more nervous on camera than in person

It sounded like he said that both kits fit the stock wheels at the end there. This is not correct though, right?

Neither fits stock wheels without spacers at least. I haven't tested the endurance.

Hi Guys,
Daniel is our 'new' guy, so he's still a bit green under pressure. He did screw up in the video and say they fit stock wheels...ooops....we'll chalk that one to the nerves.


Anyway, our Sprint and Endurance kits do not fit stock wheels without a spacer. You can check wheel fitment here:

Sprint Kit wheel fitment template

Endurance Kit wheel fitment template

We also have a list of wheels that fit on our website for each product under the page for that product. These are reported by existing customers.

Confirmed wheels that fit Sprint Kit no spacer:
Name size offset
Enkei RPF1 17x8 45
Enkei RPF1 (very tight fit, but works) 17x9 35
Enkei Fujin 17x7.5 40
Kosei K4R 17x8 36
Mach V Motorsports "Awesome" wheel 17x9 42
Rays CE28N 18x7.5 47
Sparco (designed by OZ) Assetto Gara 17x7.5 48
Subaru OEM STI Wheels (2004) 17x7.5 53
Team Dynamic 1.2 17x7 38
Wedsport TC105n 17x9 35
Wedsport TC105n 17x8 42
Work Ultimates 18x8.5 47

Confirmed wheels that fit Endurance Kit no spacer:
Name size offset
BBS CH-R 18x8 38
Enkei Fujin 17x7.5 40
Enkei RPF1 17x8 45
Mach V Awesome 17x9
Rays CE28N 18x7.5 47


I'm sure there are many others out there.


We always encourage our customers to use the templates to be sure though. The customer is ultimately responsible for ensuring fit, as there are a ton of variances/variables in wheels.


The Sprint kit is not available with the duct bracket...only Endurance. That bracket is silly expensive to produce, and one of the main reasons for the higher price of the Endurance kit over the Sprint kit ($2,599 vs. $2,099).

Thanks to Circuit Motorsports for the coverage!

We have nothing but great things to say about the Sprint kit. The pad selection is staggering too...

Just a small sample of what we've tried with our Sprint kit.

That's the truth.

In an ideal world we'd have all the cars....
