I can not help myself so here are some more thoughts.

Not being able to hook up might be saving your transmission.

However, for better stick, sell the Fuchs and get some Fox Fuchs replicas. They are 7.5 & 9" by 17 and can run 225/255's. Should be about an even switch as to price. This will give you a 10" wide rear tire. I like the Dunlop Z1 Star spec tires a lot. Very sticky, street, wet, and track worthy. If you have 8" rear Fuchs could run Hankook RS2's in 245/45/16's. Almost as sticky and even more of a bargain.

Then a limited slip and turn the boost down until you get an Inter-cooler.

Might be fun to replace the Turbo rubber with Carrera spoiler rubber to play down the turbo side of things.

Still, what a fun car is at is. Wish I had done something like that.
