Loving those wheels on the car... gloss black would look awsome on mine!!! wonder what the weight is on a set?

The video was pretty cool I thought... a timed rally series through Universal Studio's would be pretty cool to watch, should make it a stage in video games such as Dirt as well!!! Universal studios should get rid of the tram and replace them with rally cars!!!

As for the DC shoes... looking on the website... none of them would seem to offer any advantage to performing heel and toe, or increasing pedal feel while at the track... for spirited driving/ driving at the race track I like using my Puma Race Cats, or something with a thin sole like driving mocs or Converse shoes

These are not light wheels.

MWRT chose them because last year's wheels, while definitely lighter, proved a bit fragile under "Ken Block conditions."

One of the guys from 1552 stated on vortex that they were weighing in at the mid 20s, not far off the detroits.

27-lbs, so in the same ballpark as most 18" OEM wheels, but definitely stronger. If you've got the money, a custom forged version is available and is in the 21-lb range
