Mark Hill is an alien. I'm fairly sure he has run TTOD at every event over the last couple years. Down at Ozark I would have been much closer to Opie but I had to run back-to-back because of a re-run and the tires couldn't hold on that long. He's fast and has a fast CAM car for sure. He's running 335's squared if I'm not mistaken. I know I can run with those guys but unfortunately we won't be able to find out this year.Wow, Casey, what folks do not realize is you are running against National Champions like Mark Hill, and to be second in PAX against him is stellar --- he is insanely fast. Saw you were behind my old buddies Foley and Viets at the Ozark Region event and though you have 10-20 years of experience those guys have nearly double. I am pretty sure Opie Viets is a 40+ year member of SCCA. Really good runs and I hope to see you at the SCCA Solo Nationals, since I think you and Emery Seaton might be shaking up the CAMT Class and that would be great to see a couple of TMO members up on the podium.
No, can't make it this year.You need to get up to Lincoln, and since you did not mention it I am assuming you are not going to Nationals this year? Mark Hill, and a bunch of others in KC come up 3-4 times a year prior to Nationals to get seat time on the large, concrete surface. It will help a bunch and you will find the courses very conducive to the CAM Classes.
That's a pretty dang good looking wheel right there....I wonder if they have them in 12" or better yet, 13"?On a positive note, these showed up today. Holley ran a stupid good sale on these that forced me to purchase immediately. They are Rocket Racing Attacks in 18 x 11. The plan is to move my 295's over to these and get some more street/track friendly tires for the 10.5's. When my 295's are gone I'm going to switch to 315's.

They weigh in at 26lbs. Not great, not terrible. Meh

Yes, they have 12’s tooThat's a pretty dang good looking wheel right there....I wonder if they have them in 12" or better yet, 13"?
You get these off the Holley site?
Admittedly they are a touch heavy but I paid less than $500 for the whole set brand new so I'm not going to worry about a couple pounds.Nice wheels! Finally graduated to the big boy stuff!
I have looked at those before. A local AutoX guy runs them on his truck and also sells them. My concerns were with weight. Seems like 26 is pretty heavy. Well, I guess not heavy...just heavier than other options out there. I went with the Konig Hypergram in the same size because I think they're about 20 pounds (though I haven't verified that personally, some sites say 19, some say 21 shipping weight, so 20 seems a reasonable estimate). And only $1300 for the set. I can't deny that the RR wheel looks purty tho.
Another wheel you might take a look at for the next set is the 18x12 Konig Heliogram. Only $1500-1600 for 4 and only 21.9 pounds according to Konig. I am a little concerned with how much spacer it would take to run it (+20mm is all I have seen) with struts and I'm not sure it would work, but I'll admit that my understanding/knowledge of wheel sizing and fitment is a little lacking.
