    Yup. Your choice of 31 or 35 spline QP or Moser. The company has them on Ebay.

    but remember you have to get 31 because 35 is only for the full spool

    Just to let you know, they dont come with cats. They are actually resonators, if you read this post people have some info on them

    It's possible. I run 305/45-18 Nitto 555-R's and have trapped as fast as 125.2. So yeah, it's possible to hook decently with the right tires and suspension.

    exactly, like i said, its possible, and people have done it, but its not the best, it works for you, and props, thats a very fast and nice car, but its alot easier to strap a decent 17" tire on there and fly... or better yet a 15" rim...

    I think I'm gonna go with 18s solely for aesthetics if nothing else. Whats the widest I can go in the front without rubbing issues?

    You are definitely right. It is easier to go with a smaller wheel/tire combo. Plus you don't have the excess weight out back like I do.

    yeup... but sometimes style can be done while not compromising performance too much, as long as he has a set of rims for the track, it will help his times a bit... and help his daily driveability

    Like I said, its not gonna see much of the drag strip, but will see some racing. I might occasionally bring it down to a road race course we have around here.

    As far as rim width, whats the offset and width to go with? I want as wide as possible without them sticking out and they need to be same width front and rear.
