road race coilovers even with the damping wound out are still way too stiff for DR. There'll still be no weight transfer, which'll punish you out of the box where you really need it. Adjustable arms'll allow a bit of tweaking and that's good but basically the priorities of a road race car will fight the priorities of a DR car all the way. Pick one and live with the shortcomings when you make it try to do the other.

I still think this dude needs to get to know his new car and its strengths and weaknesses a bit first.

I'm running 305 drs in the rear

Well I know what I want a street car but I'm just researching my options right now, trying to learn what's out there

Re: help with traction?

That's by far your best mod right there. Chuck any upper you want on the car and, with those DRs, you'll be easily heading for low 12s with no other mods.

The upper doesn't really help traction as much as it controls time and power wasting wheel hop factory engineered into this platform.

Agreed. You pick one and deal with it. Everything has a draw back.

I wanted balance so I got street tires but maybe he can try and roast his tires even further?

Yeah I guess I will get the upper soild and deal with it and once I go through these dr I will just get some street tires for the rear. I will just have to deal with that this track is no good for anything but slicks. Will just continue the mods for what I think is good at the time. All I want is to get low 8s on this track lol there is cars with less hp than mine running high 7s with slicks all day long with slower mph also so it just bugs me a little

Ran a 8.0 today just by lowering tire psi and adding a 100 pounds to the back
