    I have found them to be really, really good.
    Day before the event the cook rings & tells them when & where,
    they take $100 direct debit, and we have track cover.
    (I think you get 3 x track days with the policy & anything extra you pay the hungee)
    Couldn't be any easier.

    WOW... Surely that's a replica wheel & not forged?

    I guess enough force even forged would do that, its the most likely spot it to break

    Build to drive not to crash lol

    real deal....
    but no wheel is built to take going SIDEWAYS into a ripple strip at $200+

    A few years ago, I hit a ripple strip sideways in the race car at Sandown (T1 it was)
    and was running VT GTS wheels (see pic below)

    That RHF wheel had 8mm runout (and caused massive front end vibes)
