    haha nice!

    Mike do you happen to have the old Bug Eye thread on brake ducting? I'm going to fabricate something when I get back from Rally Mexico for my Track Day.

    Haha, well, I am go to be in class the following week...

    But I figured I had a free flight down there might as well go! Anyone else interested in going, I have a free place to crash as well!

    Thanks for the link!


    This is the actual plate with an adapter on it correct?

    it's the actual plate w/ a duct (and a reducer- as I was running 2.5" ducting)- it's been too long ago I don't remember all the details

    sounds like a ton of fun, I'd love to go (but can't this year), might want to check in the rally section and see if anyone else is going

I'm a little bummed about not having separate rebound/compression adjustment, but I don't know if I see this as being that much of a big deal. I'm going to be running VERY similar spring rates to what Fenter was running.

    I'm VERY surprised he was even playing with the 27mm adjustable swaybar.

    I talked to Koni about revalving my inserts a few months ago, and the damper simply can't handle much more than 450-500# springs. This is THE reason I'm not running a GC/Koni setup this year.

    That's a bummer to hear....

    Well that means that DA Konis or similar will be the next jump!

    Well regionals will not be too hard to win... I'm like one of four guys and the only one who is going to prep the car even close to the rules... and I am already within a second of them with my current stock suspension 225 kooks and 22mm bars.....

    Goal for nationals is to not finish LAST!

    Another goal, learn the car!

    You have the 8610's I assume?

    A couple of us are running the 1198's that you can get from Ground Control as part of their package:
    http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show....php?t=1262596

    wakstaz was running 650 lb/in rear springs, IIRC. If you wanted to stick with an SA Koni that is one way to do it.

    Personally I don't trust myself with double adjustable shocks yet so I figure I have another 2 years on these.

    John, I totally understand what you mean about the double adjustable being a little scary.

    Ugh... I wish I had known about some of this before now...

    However I think that I will stick with what I have and then pawn off the SA stuff after the season!

    Do any of you ever wish you were perparing a different car....? I keep thinking a e36 Bimmer would be fun... Tell me i am stupid!

    I'd actually really like to do a j-rho STX 240SX... especially if the tire rules pass. I think that could be a fun and *reasonably* cheap car...

    No, I currently have the Koni Sport Inserts. These can not be revalved any higher. The 8611/8610 series should have no problem being valved to handle any spring rate.

    This year I'm also going to see how far SA dampers will get me. Honestly, I don't believe in AutoX you really have enough time to dial in the dampers to that level of accuracy. So I think rebound is plenty of adjustment to get in trouble with.

    My mom' car blew it's motor so I am letting her borrow my WRX until she gets into a position where she can buy something decent.

    So I am going down to Florida to drop off the WRX in two weeks and Bring the Firebird (See Avitar) up to Memphis.
