fair warning, i'm doubtful that he'd be able to get his hands on it.
Thanks. I can find some 3k capable, but most places I find them don't have a way to calibrate it to that high or they are not handheld units and require a computer and special software. I've called 3 companies that rent them nationwide. Another local heat treating company has one but they use it every day and can't part with it for a few hours.

Yes, 4k down the drain in 8 days of running, probably will kill off the rest of them in another 8 days. Had a conference call with the manufacturer and his element wire supplier along with an industrial process engineer. The IP engineer believes it it has nothing to do with the controls and blames the elements themselves. The manufacturer thinks the elements are grounding to the case of the oven. I don't know how that could happen without a massive spark and smoke show. And I have absolutely no continuity from the element leads to the oven case

I sent sample wire from a new element and an old element that lasted two years out to a metallurgical testing company for alloy identification and analysis. I am betting it comes back with a lower then stated nickel content based on what the IP engineer told me. That or it is horribly contaminated. He wants to see how hot the element is actually getting under load to verify if it is an alloy issue, or if the element is going over the melting point of the wire.

I have zero regrets with my 720Form GTF1, despite it not being the best looking wheel out there. Though, they’ve grown on me massively in the 2 or 3 years I’ve had them. They’re probably the best bang for the buck 17x9 available. And they’re like 1/3 the cost of those ones! They’re cheap to the point that if I curb one, I’d probably just replace it vs getting it fixed.

Yeah, you always recommend GTF1. I did def look into one, just atm I need 17x8 to keep it in SCCA's SSC class plus keep it daily to reduce my so many wheels in my garage lol

My daily wheel concept is "if I curb/damage one, getting it replaced without hurting the wallet." but, but, but... these wheels are very appealing.

They don't make the TC-4 in 17's

I have been looking at the RZ2, they make it in 17X7.5 +35. I was looking at the RGD2 but I don't like the thin 6 spoke look.

Actually they do. 17x7.5+50 & 17x8+45... not the greatest


BUT Vivid Racing claim they have 17x8+35


If it’s true, I’m def interested... but $517 per wheel is painful

Pssh, 2 days is nothing. I had 2pots rear Subaru calipers in my shopping card for over a month. lol I also have MPH dry cf roof on my tab on my phone for bout a wk.

3 years ago, someone was selling Advan RCII here for dirty cheap 3yrs ago. It was 17x7.5... so I wasn't sure I wanted em or not. I'm regret not buying them.

I feel you on the appeal of baller wheels. I just can’t justify 2K+ (and really, more than that, since CAD) on wheels.

I need an alignment more than anything right now, but real life is getting in the way
