As others have said run stock class. I don't think you can do LSD in the stock class because it was never an option on the MKVI. Rear sway bar, brake pads, and 200 treadwear tires.

Can someone comment if aftermarket wheels are allowed in the stock class assuming you keep the factory 225/40R18 tire size? What is the lightest OEM MKVI wheel? Lagunas?

Street(stock) class does permit aftermarket wheels as long as they are +/- 1” diameter, +/- 1/4” offset, and factory width. Tire size is unrestricted. I think 245/40/17 is the hot size right now?

Thanks. People are running a 245 on 7.5" wide wheels?

Maybe the new scene look will be tire bulging and not stretching. Haha.

a good set of coilover and adjustable camber in the front, but thats not very budget friendly.

If you're looking for budget friendly and shaving time would be really good tires and balls to take turns fast.
