Okay guys (since I think I'm the only girl on this whole thread, LOL)
Here is what I've done so far:
-255/35/18 up front on crappy XXR's (but they work!) and the tires are Direzza's
275/35/18 in rear.
-2.5 camber in front/ -1.8 in rear has immensely helped with understeer
-ISR Race Exhaust, feels more torquey
- reversed my cold air into a short ram, have not noticed a difference
-Switching to TOYO ST's all around, will have to report on how they perform (got them for a nice price through work)
-Still running STU class
-Have Eibach Pro Kit lowering springs but have not installed, still hashing out the difference between that and the H&R setup so if you have insight, I would love that!
I've been looking into going with Gecko coilovers once I get some more money. We just had our first race of the season and it was exciting! Unfortunately I only had 4 dry runs out of the 13 we got that day. I had one big wipeout but stayed on course, my fault not my cars.
I've learned that if you have the 3.8L, it is best to drive it smoothly. trying to push out of corners can make for skids, aka risking a second more or two. I had times within 15/44 participants so I'm doing something right.
I'm still learning how to be faster and smooth at the same time, when I have a codriver they seem to drive more aggressively and that sacrifices time.
Anyway just a little update here. If anyone has insight to the Gecko coilovers, H&R springs and Sway bar recommendations, I will gladly hear your advice.
