I was replying specifically to the lightweight part. I never said you said anything about forged wheels, simply stating that they can be as light as other cast wheels but not as light as forged.

I just want to know how low I can take it without royally fucking the geometry. I sure do hope they release extended balljoints and whatnot for this car.

Let's hope RaceComp can work with AST or KW to develop a coilover kit within this year.

I'm just hoping for bilstein shocks with TRD/SPT springs and a camber kit (please someone make plates). keep it streetable and quiet with a little drop and firming up for handling and looks.

I could do Koni yellows too, but I prefer bilstein shocks if I have the choice.

Toyota uses Bilstein HD's on all there trucks and suv's so I think they will stay with Bilstein. The koni yellows are twin tube and dissipate more heat then a mono tube. Then they get soft because the oil is heated

Hey so ik I might be throwing off a conversation but I am fresh meat in the aftermarket community. I come from an engineering background so Im not conceptually stupid but I am a beginner and might need an explanation as to cause and effect of certainmods on my build.

I am about to purchase a 2015 scion frs with 42k miles. My goal for this car is to basically make it a mustang killer and then maybe later add flex fuel and reinforced components on e85 and make it a GTR killer lol. Looking for about 300-320 at the wheels on 91 with a kraftwerks supercharger (maybe c30) and whatever I can get on e85 (have seen in 400-450 range with built motor)

I was going to start by asking the thread what should be the first steps that I can do easily myself. (swaybars, wheels, tires,etc)

I know before I go forced induction I should do some prep mods to support the added power. I was going to start with wheels and tires and a big break kit, then swaybars, then the supercharger. As of right now I don't want to change suspension if I can get away with it. I don't want it to be more stiff than it already is. IS THIS SAFE AND OK?
