After that I would get adjustable end links, get the car corner balanced, and Schroth quick fit belts. Make sure your base map has the stock boost tables and you are using stock boost while autocrossing.

That's it. Everything else is stock. I drive this car daily, so many other typical mods are being looked at with much more scrutiny than just the cost. Next for me is probably a battery and removing those useless fog lights off the front.

Did you by chance put your hand on your tires after a run? I would expect the outside is much hotter than the inside with only 2.5 deg of camber in the front. What kind of tire pressures did you run?

Drive my car for a run or two at the next event and we can see what you think. We can make suggestions from there.

I was running 45PSI front and 40PSI rear. It was so windy at the TX Tour that tire temps were almost non-exsistent. Generally, the tire temps are close enough that I'm not overly worried. I've got 4 events on the car now, and tire wear is looking good. I expect to need more camber to maximize front grip, though. My setup is not optimized, just based on best practice and setup for dual use. I can't wait to actually adjust the camber and shock settings to make the car better

Rob, sounds good.

Nice win in TX John, should be even better once you start to actually prep the car.

I just ordered some 255/40/17 Star Specs (I know... I'm running my region's STM class and BSP/STM elsewhere this year) from Discount Tire. They offer 10% Bing cash back, too, so the total shipped for all 4 was just under $550.

Hey guys, switching from BSP to STU this year. No more 17x10/275's for me!

Here goes:

1. Engine - Cobb APv2 - STU Protune, Stock Intake, K&N Panel Filter
2. Exhaust - Helix Catted DP, Invidia N1 Street CB
3. Suspension - RCE Tarmac 2's - 600/500 rates, WL 27-29 FSB set on 29, WL 22-24-26 RSB set on 24. Ride height is around 13.75" front, 13-13.25" rear.
4. Alignment - -3.0 camber up front, -2 camber rear, 0 toe all around
5. Tires - 245/40/17 RE-01R's on 17x8 Rota G-Forces (for now)
6. Brake Pads - Hawk HP+ all around w/ stock rotors

Running 29/24 on my bars currently with 600/500 springs. Car was pushing a bit too much this past weekend. (understeering) I need more rotation: I'm thinking about bumping down my bars to 27/22. Smart move?

I might end up putting the stock front bar back on at some point. Maybe the stock rear as well...

What tire pressure were you running in those RE01R's?

I was running around 43 psi front and 38.5 - 40 psi rear. (hot) Should I add more out back to help the rear slide around a bit more? Either way, I'm definitely going to soften up my current WL bars, before taking them off.

From my experience, RE01R's are tough. When I ran them, my car had some push that I could not dial out. Collin F. might hopefully chime in here to help you out as he ran them and was very fast the year he did (won Nats.). But if I recall, I believe he ran them at pretty high pressures 45psi or so. I got tired of trying to dial them in and went to the D-lops. If you plan on sticking with that tire then yes start making changes to get the car where you want it. If you plan on switching tires, I would not start swapping parts just yet as your car will handle much different with a set of D-lops for example.

Good to know. My current plan is to kill off my RE-01R's, which have about 30-40% life left. Once they're done, I'm probably going to order some light gray 17x9 Kosei K1 TS's from TireRack, along with some 245/40 RE-11's.

So, who runs 17x9.5 for an STU wheel setup? I'm thinking about trying out some 17x9.5 +38mm RPF1's. I'll need some ARP's up front, along with a 5mm spacer to clear the Brembos. The plan is to stretch out a 245/40 RE-11. Is this overkill?

I know a guy running 17x10 RPF1's with no spacers and a 245/45 Star Spec. The tire fits fine, but it's quite stretched. Since this is going to be a DD/STU setup, I want to go with a bit more compliance.

I've also thought about 18x10 RPF1's....but that might be a bit overkill. Does anyone run 18's in STU?

And before anyone say's their heavy...the 17x9.5 RPF1 weighs 16.4 lbs...
