IBTL!

I always ran spacers in STX (15mm). Widen front track, promote oversteer. But hey I like oversteer. I assume similar reason or needed by offset?

Over steer > Understeer. I have a hard time driving a car that pushes.. and these things have that tendency.

Yep, front only 15mm HR's, +45 Enkei's.

I'm sure those spacers may find their way to this car as I no longer use them.

So when you get a weird pic on your phone.....don't be surprised!

Good luck with the build, and keep track of what is working vs. throwing parts (money) at it.

You haven't driven my car.


Car looks clean and seems like a good start with the parts! I was reading your post and thinking, "Does she know she can't use the bolts?" Then I read further.


If it helps I've got a lot of info in my build thread and should have even more in the next two weeks as I finish off the rest of the bushings and the intake/turbo inlet. Also talk to Colin, he was a huge help when I was setting up my car. From what I've gathered from my research here, some people like to go stiff springs/soft swaybars while others prefer to go softer springs/stiffer sway bars. I'm in the former camp. Currently running 600/500 springs and 24mm/22mm f/r sway bars and the car feels fantastic.

^ Good luck with the install! Good to see another STU build. I'm shooting for STU legality at the year's end.

Okay, I ran the car on Sunday in Cincy region.


The car was what I expected. It pushed a lot and as soon as I got my head out of my ass and didn't drive it like Greg's car it was a lot better out there. Tom was just shy of FTD in the car so that was pretty impressive, he got 6th in pax. The boy can drive. It gave me a lot of confidence in the car this season. I'm really looking forward to it.

Unfortunately when I drove up to tech the car this is what I found.


Got some stop leak in it and it was fine for the rest of the event. All 12 runs.

Got back to Toledo today and found this.

As I expected it needed a new radiator. Luckily Jacob had one laying around for me. I also found the AC tensioner pulley was completely ****ed too so Tony luckily had one of those laying around.

Had to pull the grill to replace the Radiator (just made things easier) While it was off I replaced the front emblem.


Radiator was out and back in pretty smoothly

I also replaced the Forge blow off valve with the stock blow off valve.
The Forge Blow off valve will be for sale for anyone interested.

Great that you got to run, sucks that the radiator took a dump on itself.

Yeah, I'm glad it survived the drive to Cincy (not sure when it exactly broke) The drive to the event, 12 runs, drive back to Athens, then the drive to Toledo, without over heating.
