sigh...to extreme for my daily driver. i've looked into 710s. but i think winter rims are the only thing i'm going to be able to aford for the next year.AndrewSS said:^ There are a handful of guys running r-comp tires here in AS, the more serious ones are probably gonna be on the hoosier A6 or kumho v710.
They are no doubt maxing their stock allowable camber (which is roughly one degree negative)
I believe that the recent winning STi (johnathans?) was on Ohlins struts... oh and I think the crazy ones run a lot of toe-out to get as much as they can from the car.
Both Steve and his wife are amazing drivers. They've been doing this for a while and really know how to race and learn the line. The course on the 3rd was all about the line. I did terrible and most of it was I was used to most of our courses this season which had some room for error and you could make up time in other spots. This course was VERY technical and all about staying on the line. My later runs were much better when I learned that I was actually faster by going slower.thunderbird said:Steve Salisbury wins A-stock in Washington DC area auto-x September 3rd. What do these guys know that the rest of us don't? I suppose they might know how to drive the car.
AndrewSS said:^ if you arnt going to R-comps, come to STU
Note the PAX factor for AS is worse than STU (.831 vs .820) - thus R-comps are apparently worth slightly more than all the STU mods put together...kts262 said:Steve's time with an A-stock car was faster then the fastest cars in STU. Of course the R-comps probably help some with that.
