Also sent a request for the S.FL owners link. I live in tampa area.
Love them. Feel comfortable, not jumpy. I went with the 280 spring rates. Would recommend to anyone.

I will approve the request.

Thanks.

Jeez man how does all that power feel like in the brz? Would like to here more on how the car is on track, were you kicking everybody's butt or what?

My goal is to get my car to the level your car is on. Thanks for sharing.

Paul,

I love the wheels too. I was iffy on the silver but love it with dark colored car.

In the end I regretted it on my car. I could never completely get rid of the rub in the rear with the wider MPSSs and that was after hacking the heck out of the bumper tab area.

Thanks! I love 265s all around, but need more camber/fender roll in the front for the track. I rubbed the tires a lot in the front on the tight turns, but definitely love the meaty look.

Your car definitely inspired me to go meaty all around.

BTW, I'm friends with Joey from Miami, who has told me is a very good friend of yours.

-1.5 rear, -1.8 front.

i want to get to -2.2 front though, thats where i was before and loved it. i need new top hats for my AST's. i'll get them over winter, really don't want to spend more fucking money though...i'm just really trying to drive it and enjoy it for a while, i got carried away too fast.

your'e also lower than me, right now i can't go lower in the front, so i need a top hat that would accommodated me in terms of stacking height, so its either the HVT or raceseng...but idk. no one has my coilover so back to being a test dummy now. not that it matters, but if you guys know a front top hat that would gain me some room, i'd appreciate the link. right now i can't physically go lower on the ASt's in the front...but in the rear i can tuck tires if i needed to. makes no damn sense....not that it matters because i didn't buy these to be low, but you know..i want it too drive AND look good.

I don't remember if you have Michelin PSS. Those are notorious for running wide, so even though its a 265, its as wide as a 275 on other brands.

I am inclined to get the Raceseng plates.... but so pricey. I want non-raising plates.
