I'm going to try and hit some of the National events this upcoming year- our Divisional series (NorPac) includes two National events Atwater and Packwood-should be fun competing w/ the "big boys". Sticking w/ STX.
Setup wise I have some big changes I'm planning on - I'm going to move up to 17" rims. I'm debating between 235/40 and 245/40- leaning towards to 235/40 just for the gearing (although the 245/40 is also slightly shorter than stock). I'm debating between RE01R's and Neova's, both well represented at the Finals this year, the Advans might be a slightly better w/ heavier cars (like ours)??? Whatever I choose I think I'm going to get them shaved to 5/32", it doesn't seem like it's impacting overall wear much from what I read- it certainly impacts grip.
I'm probably going to a double (maybe triple) adj coilover setup- spring rates in the 450-500ish front/400-450ish rear.
I'm going to bump up front neg camber to -3.0ish, I'm close now, but a little more should help.
I need to sort my exhaust out due to the recent "clarification"-need a catted downpipe, I might go 3" throughout- we'll see.
I'm hoping Santa sees this thread
