I'm wondering what front/rear sway bar setup did you end up using?

What did the car come with from Japan?

Video of first part of race
Some people just have no clue on W2W
The civic infront me is different class,
When I pass him clean at last corner
He just refuse to give up , and hit me on the left
What a dumb *** !!!

what do you think about the wider front tires?

I'm currently running 285/30/18 hankook td all around on my track fd, but i'm thinking of changing the front to 265/35/18, to have better braking and turnin feel.

Also i'm very curious what kind of alignment setting you are using?

^^ What front wheel width?

I ran 265/35-18 Ventus TD on 18x10.5 and really liked the feel.

I ran my 295/35-18 Ventus TD on 18x11 and really like it too though.

From my limited experience the 265/35-18 will have better "feel" than the 285/30-18 on the 18x10.5 in the Hankook Ventus TD.

The Ventus TD has kind of a soft sidewall and rounded carcass profile, so the slight "stretch" flattens out the tread and puts some needed tension on the sidewall.

I went from Ventus TD to Toyo R888 on my 295/30-18 on 18x11 set-up and even though the 295 R888 is much wider than the 295 Ventus TD the R888 was a much more precise, better feeling tire with a very stiff sidewall. Of course the R888 was also much slower with less grip than the Ventus TD.

Now I am on 285/30-18 BFG R1S on the 18x11 and that tire is the king of slop making the old Ventus TD feel precise. But damn, its fast!

that's great information, thanks !

I'm thinking of switching to RE71R for the next set, maybe i'll give the 285/30 all around another try, the RE71R should have a much stiffer sidewall.

Blue, how many track days does your R1 last? More or less than the TD soft?

I only auto-x, kart track sprint and hillclimb- no track.

The R1S seems to wear faster than the Ventus TD. You leave much more visible rubber on the asphalt with it and R1S comes up to heat much faster.

I think R1S would overheat and grease out on the track for anything but a single time attack lap. I have no experience with R1 which is the track compound.

To have better feel on ur car
Try to run more offset wheel on ur car
Like from +20 to +40 above the wheel center more close to ur steering pivot point will give u more feel on steering
I will not reduce my tire width unless the rule say so

My alignment set up this time
Front 0toe
Rear. +.3toe in

Camber front -3.5 rear -4
