Hey All. I've been gone a long time again, but I'm still rocking the '19 Turbo. Over 70K km now, and other than little stuff, it's still a great car. I've almost traded it in for an "N" at least twice, but I just can't pull the trigger.

It actually landed me a 1st Place finish in my local TA Championship this summer, on just a set of sticky Falkens and lighter wheels. It's a very capable little car, and easy to drive at the edge. It shocked a lot of my friends in the same race class. The little stock brakes leave something to be desired though, but with a lot of bleeding, flushing and changing of brake pads I managed to almost trust them by the end of the summer. If I ever compete with it again, big brakes are the first priority.

Then a week before the snow fell, I hit some $hit laying on the highway in the dark and totaled one of the nice factory wheels. Now I'm torn on whether to buy an expensive replacement or just sell the 3 good ones I have left. Anyone selling right now... or buying? I threw in some pics too, bottom one is the set in question.

Thanks! The RT660 is a shockingly good tire for time attack. The grip is unbelievable. I flipped them around on the wheels and I'm pretty OCD about pressure, so they wore almost perfectly. I could probably even get most of another season out of them. I run expensive PZero Corsa's on my other car, and I have just as much confidence with the Falkens.

damn at 80tw they better be good!

i never found myself in trouble at the limit on the rt660. except in the rain... and oversteering lol. traction control does a great job of keeping the back reeled in most of the time. i keep it on in the rain.

I see quite a few Velosters around here, and many are N's, but I cannot get anyone to bring them out to the track, even for hot lapping. I will be very excited the first time I see another one putting down some laps. Some of them are quite modified too, and built for it, but there doesn't seem to be any interest in racing them. :/
