sub'd. I hate these long posts, I tend to just skim through them, but I enjoy your contribution and there will be some great info here for future reference:tup:
The point is just saying - why modify to improve your time when you can just improve your driving skill to be just as fast as you would be by modifying the car.So only the fastest driver on the track gets to mod eh?
PS: I missed anything about "How To Modify Your GR STi Suspension"

I obviously don't follow this since I'm pretty heavily modified, but it's just an interesting way to look at things. I've improved my local track lap time considerably with modifications and seat time.
This is common sense. Stop eating all carbs from whole grains to sugar to bread or pasta, and just eat raw direct fiber (fuits and vegetables), meat and fish, nuts, and full fat everything including dairy and the weight will melt off; no portion control needed. You will lose the insulin rushes, the carb crashes and feel far better from both lower weight and the ups and downs that sugars and starches cause.Want another silly climbing argument? Why should worry about technique or getting stronger - - - -when all you have to do is loose weight!
Funny you bring this up, I climb as well (at Brooklyn Boulders mostly). 100% true. The whole technique argument applies to many, many things. It was a huge factor during my competitive swimming days back in high school..Because the car won't get faster on its own. If you want to get faster you should train and mod.
I climb regularly, mostly at a gym because I live in the pancake flat Pineland of South Jersey. Beginners almost always express how they aren't strong enough to do what I do. The fact is that mostly they have no technique. But, if they stick with it and keep trying, by the time they learn technique they will have gained a lot of strength!
Your car isn't going to gain strength as you learn technique.
Mod if you have the desire and the means.

The other posts will be less long as alignment is the most important.This is all good stuff, but I need to take a week off from work just to read it. I'm thinking you should sell your own suspension packages...seriously. I just installed some bushings and coilovers. My next mod is a quick rack then I'll revisit this fantastic thread.
I see you joined in 2004; don't you miss your GD?Yes thanks. My struts were shot after 113k and the coilovers were almost new for $600, so I couldn't pass those up. So far yes it is one mod at a time. Only a few bushings and 2011 lower controll arms so far.
