Never heard of these vibra-technics mounts, do you have more info on them?

Hows the new clutch set up? Did it remedy the chatter you were getting?
The car won't be on the road for at least a month, but I have very high confidence
in the new clutch disc. It turns out that the previous disc was not made per my
requirements, so it didn't perform as expected.

Vibra-Technics is probably the only company that makes performance engine
mounts with rubber, the way they should be made. Urethane mounts are a joke.
Read the FAQ on the VT website for an explanation.

Wow those look really nice. May look into those at some point because I do not want to add any vibration to my interior from NVH like what you'll inevitably get with even the softest Urethane.

Time for new wheels. The WedsSport TC105X looked pretty nice in the pics on the Weds website,
so I bought one to test fitment. This wheel is really sweet. It doesn't clear the TL Brembo calipers,
so I'm planning on buying a RB brake kit, which will fit the original TSX knuckles. I've become really
irritated with the TL knuckles due to the different angle of the top ball joint. I currently have modified
skunk2 UCAs, which are absolute garbage, so I've been wanting to get rid of those too.

17x9.5 +45. My current wheels are 17x9 +45 and seem perfect.
The wider rim is going to be really close to the knuckle, but should be OK.

Yes, 255/40ZR17. The idea is to have the Weds wrapped with Pirelli Trofeo R tires for the track.
These tires and size are more like 265 width, so I should have plenty of grip.

I've never run a Pirelli. Those look aggressive though. I think I'm going to try an inexpensive set of tires like the Federal RS-RR in 255/35r18 next time. They too run wide and will likely be close to a 265 💪💪💪💪
