Just got my wheels(BBS RG345 17x7 +48) with 225/45/17 RE-71Rs wrapped on them.

I will be doing my first event on the new wheels/tires tomorrow and was wondering what you guys would suggest for tire pressures. Looking at posts from the thread I'm guessing 30psi is a good starting point?

I was working the finish of the east course Friday while you guys were running on the west course, so I could see and hear just about everything that was happening over there. That final run was awesome! The Fenter and Harvey put up a fight, but I was really glad to see the win go to you and a twin. Congrats!

Concrete or asphalt? 30-32 is usually right for concrete; asphalt will probably want slightly less.

Congrats on the win Dave, great driving out there. Coming up big on your final run was clutch. CS is a blast to run and I really enjoyed this year and plan to be back next year.

Big thanks to CounterSpace Garage and Cusco for helping me get new shocks late in the season. I dropped the ball with my day 1 runs, but on day 2 I was able to drive the car much closer to its capabilities, with the fifth fastest time on the west course. The car felt great on that tighter, technical course. Video from my west course run:

Any inputs appreciated, the fastest run was the second one. 44.6sec.

I started off with 32/30 and moved down to 30/29. I guess I'll be playing around with chalk and tire pressures to see what works.

I got asked a lot about my suspension package from FRSport that I have been testing.

It looks like they have finally released the finished product (with nice adjusters, too!!)

http://www.frsport.com/index.php?tar...0176ef9a4bfb0b

Its a great kit for those looking for more adjustability than the Koni Sports and with the durability/reliability of Bilstein!! All of the kits are valved and built in-house by Guy Ankeny (long time Penske builder for countless SCCA nationals champs).

So will the stock front end links work with the TRD lowering springs, or are some people using the Whiteline KLC 179 or the slightly shorter KLC 180-195 adjustable end links?

Stock endlinks work without issue!

This is purely an objective, informational question...what alignment settings did you achieve with these?

Ok thanks for the info... TRD springs too I'm assuming?

I still need to develop my driving skills on my current setup, but as I exceed the limits, I'll definitely be keeping these in mind for the future!
