If you get R-comps, you should put them on 9 inch rims so that you can run 275's. Get a set of super sticky street tires for your OE Bullitts and get as fast as you can on those and then move to the R-comps. You don't want to waste a set of race tires to learn on. They add about a hundred dollars to the cost of each race so you want to make them count!

If your steering rack isn't worn out, there's no reason to replace it, just the bushings...
Ok i heard the Dunlop Direzza ZII tires are discontinued... Is that true?

Yea i meant to say understeer. I keep getting the 2 confused lol.
That makes a lot more sense, our cars tend to take a lot to oversteer on a consistent basis. Adding some positive toe will help with the understeer along with a square wheel setup.

Sometimes I really hate threads like these cause it makes me want to go race my car some more

Holy crap that looks like such a fun course. All those lovely fast sweepers only one slalom and a fast one at that. Those beautiful WOT straights.... I am insanely jealous!!! Our track setups out here are much tighter with a lot less potential to really get on the throttle. Look at the vids I posted in the FS thread and know that is the most open, fastest course we have had all year and you will understand :)

Nice runs with a little bobble on the last one :) trail breaking to shift the weight onto the front in some of those corners will help negate the under steer you are having. Alternatively you might try breaking a bit earlier, setting up on a slightly more outside line and apexing early to get on the throttle as soon as possible. In a lot of cases I find with the 5.0 that getting on the throttle faster coming out of corners is faster than trail braking into them. The Coyote digs like crazy though so your mileage may vary.

Yea it was fun. The last event my gears were perfect (4.10s). At this one I would say that 3.73s would have been best for my car, or 3.90s.

Brakes definitely need work also. I'll have to put those higher up on my mod list.

Also, Ron. I wasn't the only one to spin out lol. The Z06 behind me spun out across the finish line. And about half of the cars there that day spun out lol
