Talking Legacy takes FTD at local auto-x!!

For the full write-up you can read my post in the NESIC forum http://i-club.com/forums/showthread....threadid=99549 . For the short version, my '97 2.5GT with DMS Golds, MRT swaybar (set to 21mm), MRT exhaust, and Kumhos set the FTD at our local (non-SCCA) auto-x yesterday. This was my first ever FTD, after twice taking 2nd place this season. I ended up about 0.75sec ahead of second place, and on that run I picked up a stupid cone so I really should have been 1.75sec up (on a 75sec course).

Cool, eh?

Here's Pleiades doing the AutoX thing. Or maybe it's Porter driving, not sure.

The GT Sedans really surprise people, or maybe it's just the nuts behind the wheel!

Yep, the car is all fixed, DMS no longer bouncing. However, my camber is AFU front and rear, so I'm trying to get in touch with Dave Clark to figure that out. I actually have positive camber in the rear even though nothing else has changed on the car. Strange.

The DMS doesn't use eccentric camber bolts, it uses offset washers. I tried flipping the washers, just to be sure I wasn't an idiot, and the positive camber was visually worse. I spoke with Dave today and he's going to talk to Jamie Drummond this evening. Apparently he's seen this problem once before, and of course this will require yet another set of new strut bodies. In the meantime, Dave's going to send me different offset washers which should get me closer to 0.

Pat,

Congrats on the FTD.

What did you have before the DMS? Is there a suspension that you would recommend, aside from the DMS.

TIA,
Mike

Mike - The only suspensions I've used are stock and DMS, so I'm not sure what advice to give you if you're looking for something cheaper. To be honest, I don't even know how the '00+ rear suspension setup works, and how that might affect your suspension options. Sorry, dude.
