FD suspension help

I recently changed my setup from 245s all around to 245s in the front and 275s in the rear.

With my old tire setup I had Konis, Ground Controlls, Greddy front strut tower, stock rear strut tower, stock front anti-sway, no rear anti-sway, and a drag launch kit. The cars rotation was very nice and neutral at 0 throttle and I could use throttle to enduce progressive oversteer in turns. Other than my 1st and 2nd gear being useless due to power it was an awesome setup. (245s dont like 400+whp).

I have auto-X once with the new setup and there is now a lot of understeer. I havent changed any of the suspension settings yet. I have been pondering going with a Tripoint front and a stock rear with adj. endlinks and playing with dampning and endlinks.

My question is there anyone with a similar staggared setup that uses the car for AutoX and track days? If so, what suspension setup are you using.

Thanks!

Nick

sounds like you need to stiffen up the rear. try reinstalling the stock bar first and see how it feels.

17X8 front and 17X10 rear. They are Volk GTPs.

I was running 17X8 SSR A2s. I couldnt find any 17X9 SSRs so I got the Volks. They are a bit heavier (the 17X10 is 19lbs) but they are very nice looking.
