its coming.
I have an EDFC so as long as I can always set the damping force back to the softest setting and clear speed bumps, I don't mind compromising anything.

That's funny, because I feel every bump in the road and I've been blowing away a certain green camaro every race thus far. lol.

You'd definitely hand my ass to me off the track though.

This isn't a complaint more of an observation
cause I'm happy to have somewhere to go, and look what Hilo SCCA uses...

Ever see the more open mainland AutoX's?!?! They say HRP way back when had some high speed sections.
I really think that would spread out the times. I mean the miatatatata and minicooper get such close times compared to their boosted counterparts. A little more room to gallop might mean putting the power to the ground.
And when it comes to putting the power to the ground CA'maro!

you know its also funny to see the folks on the boards(mainland) go through the same tires on the same car way faster. It's crazy too cause w/ all the organizations some of these guys could AutoX almost everyweekend if the wanted to.

ahhhhhhhh..... sh*t. hard to drink coffee when all stiff like that.

i was hoping with those ajustable shocks, i can set them on the softest for the street and it would help the ride i'm getting now. wishful thinking.. lol

i'll still plan on getting the fronts first, then the back, hopefully the fronts before the next race.

I'm all for an aggressive alignment, but I don't want it to murder my tires while I DD. Something between good handling and good tire wear would be ideal. As for high spring rates, I've got no idea how to even change that or how exactly it affects the car.

I do that every morning with my bumpy ride. When I get to UH, not a drip of stray coffee can be found on my face.

I miss HRP and the mainland courses, they were up to 70mph at some sections. I'd burn through my 275's in 4 or 5 races at that pace though.
Dave, you're getting better, after your suspension is dialed in, it's time for some tires....
