    They are track pads, but they aren't as aggressive as Hawk Blues for example, but more aggressive and heat resistant than HP+.

    Assuming this is a street car, we have had great service from EBC yellows. They take heat well, dont fade easily and have reasonable street manners without noise. I've used them in door to door racing too with predictable performance.

    The waitlist was due to a lack of transponders. Mat is working on a work-around for this and I've updated the number of transponders available.

    Custom alignment shop thread?

    Our club sponsor Speed Factor does custom alignments. Hopefully someone can chime in on their experience as I have none personally.

    budget rear suspension for 300hp?

    Should be close. If you get real energetic, you can swap out the 4.10 pumpkin for a 97-ish Kia Sportage front third member and upgrade to 4.71's I have a complete rear IRS from the supra already out of the car, and two others still in cars. The one you took the shocks/trans out of has the adjustable spring perches in it. Shoot me a text and we can discuss further. It won't be much.

    budget rear suspension for 300hp?

    A solid axle will be your best bet on a budget...both in dollars and time. A first gen RX7 rear axle would also be a Good swap with LSD and 4:10's out of the box. Correct bolt pattern too! (GSL-SE) For IRS, I'd suggest a MK2 supra rear setup. It's a simple mount and should be close in width. 4:30's and LSD standard equip on P-Type manuals. Not to mention I know where you can find both of those!

    four brand new, never mounted tires. 255-40-17 Nankang NSII-R (120tw) Purchased June 2017. $550 takes all four tires! Changed rim sizes and these won’t work for me anymore. Speaking of rims... Four brand new never used/mounted Konig Integram Wheels. Three of the four are still factory sealed. 17x9 +42 5x100 $650 for all four wheels.
