If they’re OE rotors, you have holes which you can put a bolt through and slowly wrench.

The bolt pushes against the hub face and will force the rotor off.

Ok thanks! Anybody know the bolt size and thread pitch I'll need to use?

You can use the spare tire holding bolt on the rotors, it's the same size and pitch IIRC.

For future reference when working on cars that don't have the hole in the hub face of the rotor, you can always put a big bolt through one of the holes for the caliper bracket, and thread it through a couple big washers and a nut in between the bracket and rotor. Bolt will push on the rotor when you thread it all the way in you can wrench it against the rotor. Tighten it up, loosen and rotate the rotor, tighten again. It'll pop.

They're not illegal. Just heavy.

That's totally legal for STX, but it won't be as fast at 17's. I believe 265 is as wide as you can go for RWD cars in this class though.

I tried out my 350/275 spring setup this weekend. The co-driver took first in class out of 10. The car gripped great and handled nice and predictably. Easier to drive than on 400/400 for sure in most features. I still haven't quite figured out how to drive it yet so I can't say it's great all around yet. But I like it. It definitely handles bumps better. I will say it does roll significantly more even with a Perrin front bar set on stiff, so transitions require a little more anticipation. Another benefit of the softer springs is that the low speed damper adjustments make huge differences. A total of 3 clicks of change (2 rebound and one compression) on the front took the car from balanced to extremely loose. Settings still are not perfect but it's nice to have that level of control. Just thought I'd post some feed back on my softer spring experiment. So far I like it.

Are 17x9 a must or can you get away with 17x8.5 and still be competitive?

All you’re sacrificing is contact patch. Sure you’d can get away with 8.5” but it’s in your favor to upgrade
