There's some great deals on last season's rivals right now. And they're considered to be a good HPDE tire that doesn't get too incredibly greasy.

Yes, went through the fence along the finish stretch. And its a tough lot for them to work with I'd imagine. High School parking lots don't make good venues. My friend in the purple had been saying...

Today was eventful. I did a little event down in Delaware with a motorsports club. Got 3rd behind a prepped BRZ, and watched a 350z go through a fence, across a road, and onto somebody's lawn. ...

The m3 style swaybar mounts are just as, if not more important. So you're already half way there. If you upgraded the bar anymore, chances are you'd be lifting up the inside tire. Mike's car does it...

Correct, no stacking. I don't like the idea of it, so I never tried.

Don is right. All these things need are some serious front camber and a giant front swaybar. Once I finally decided on camber...
