I only bumped the limiter in 2nd in one corner with the 4.10s other than that they were perfect. My limiter is at around 6150 rpm and that's around 55mph I think.
Haha.
Just like the stock gears in my car... Some autocross courses they work good, others, not so much.
Ideally, you would have a quick change rearend and then swap different gears after walking the track and determining which ratio would be the best for that particular course.

It sure is!

Im still not over it...:(



I think that the American Autocross still has an event or two left to run at Marina though.

We should try to make it to some of the remaining events.

Please let me know if there is an upcoming American autocross in Marina, I would love to get back out there.

So I never have a real review of the suspension. So we all know that our cars have bad oversteer. After the Panhard Bar and Torque Arm the car actually has understeer. The back end is super controlled and only let go on me once, but I was also flooring it through a corner on my last run. All the other times the front end washed out instead.

No matter what the car felt so much better with the items.

It's the understeer that gives me trouble with my car. And your car will probably keep doing it until you get the same size tires and wheels on the front and rear.
When are we going to the dragstrip? That will be a good test for the rear suspension work that you've done...:)

Running some positive toe will help reduce sime of that understeer you're getting but it won't go away completely until you run a square wheel/tire setup

Well I'll need to find a way to fit 10" up front then lol
Eh these cars don't really need a large wheel setup unless you're pulling some major G's with a fine tuned suspension setup. My 255s never lost traction in turns. But a SLA setup will allow you to run up to 315s up front

Yeah, it would be interesting to try 315's. There does seem to be some hoops to jump through though. We've been contemplating, at the track, if it can be done without the fancy front end, by using spacers AND rolling AND possibly flaring the fenders.

Not my car...:nonono:

I only have one race to judge by, but my 275's on 9 inch rims seemed to work pretty darned good. :)
