Stock RE92's, feathered and wasted! Going to be changing soon to Kuhmo 217's.
Stock struts/springs
Whiteline 18-22mm RSB (currently set at 20mm)
Whiteline endlinks.
Stock alignment settings -- whatever that is from the factory. Probably will get that checked out/changed when I get my new tires.


I'll probably go the poor-man's coil over setup with AGX's and Ground Controls/Eibach springs, but that'll be for when my stock suspension is worn out!

LaterZ!
Darren!!

Kumho 712's at 42psi front 45psi rear
20mm FHi rear sway bar
OMP front Strut bar, STi rear strut bar
VER 5 suspension (springs & dampers)
Brembo Rotors and Metal Master pads (front)
Rear brakes are stock
Cobb short shifter
OMP harness belts
Stromung 2 1/4 cat back SS dual tip exhaust
ISR intake with custom heat shield
Sparco pedal set

Its a pretty neutral setup, I prefer quick rotation hence the pressure differential in my tires. Its fun and I also drive it this way on the street...

What JJ described is classed as 'STR'. What Shawn has is 'STS'. You can also go for 'GS' - the stock class. Figure out where you want to compete first, then ask more directed questions about legal setups.

I suggest STS. STR is fairly dead in most places. GS is also good, but limits to a great extent what you can mod on your car. Of course, there's also 'S-Mod' is you have boost.

Take yer pick.

Thanks guys! I think I am going with kumho. I guess setup is different for everybody depending how the person drives. I am going to have my own setup for suspension/handling, but I also got few good tips from you all, thanks!
