    Track tire carrier

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    my car is too cramped to carry r comp tires to the track, I had been considering a roof rack but the thought of a mound of 4 tires on the roof...sheesh.

    so i came up with this.


    it works very well, though the shop made it backward, we are working on fixing that, the bar in back is supposed to be front, so you cant drop wheel onto the car when loading. I double strapped it and it rode very nicely. zero issues. 200 mile rt home to track.

    plus 1 for drag week.

    I have been lightly thinking about the Texas mile and other such timed runs, not drag racing per se.

    With the loss of weight from the heavy OEM exhaust (40lbs?) assembly, plus the free flow of nearly a straight 3" pipe, 034 R460 Big turbo kit, this car is PROPERLY rapid. I drove my students Golf R with APR's stg3, this baby kills it.

    I love the way this car is turning out. (I had 161 mph indicated at another track before the weight loss and free flow exhaust.)

    Did 034 provide a DSG tune with the turbo swap as well?

    This is awesome!!

    Do you have any pictures of how it is mounted and the actual construction of the mount itself? What is rated for, like tongue weight?

    Sorry no idea on tongue weight, could guess it's way more than 4 sets of wheel/tires. I have put 1000s of miles on the rack, its spotless. Key is getting solid welds. Lower carrier is thick strong stuff, thinner wall up top. Maybe 50lbs rack weight with powder coating

    I suffer from the same issue, packing 4 wheels/tires into the car each time I travel to the track. Had the opportunity to see @mossback setup up closely. Pretty Awesome!
    At the same time, I am not sure this will work with a quad exhaust.

    It won't, you have cut the rear diffuser, and got to center exit exhaust.

    You need to mount some cameras to capture peoples faces when you're rolling down the highway. LOL

    Very inventive man, well done.

    Never thought of this, I usually just drive to the track with my track tire/wheels on the car... I guess Im lucky that the track is only about 10km away from the house.

    I've seen a couple Cayman guys add a tow hitch under the rear license plate and tow a small Harbor Freight trailer with tires, fuel, etc.
    Car then looks totally normal when not towing.
