    The car leans. The BFGs rubbed because they are huge. My fastest time was on the Rivals, .16s faster than the DZll's. That was unexpected, the course was tight, i never saw redline in second, probably peaked at ~6000rpm.

    Left traction control totally on or just sport mode? (or do you even know).

    He left his fully on during his fastest run. I was all the way off, every time.

    What offset are your wheels and do you think more or less offset would have decreased the rubbing?

    42mm offset, which is almost the maximum to be legal for street class.

    I can't say if more would help, but I'm pretty sure it was rubbing on the wheel liners, not struts or fenders. I will take a closer look and see if I can tell for sure where it was rubbing.
