If you are going for maximum cornering traction, I found the rear sway bar actually made it slipperier

That sliding armrest is my favorite that I have seen though, I feel like none of the others are anywhere near as functional.
I prefer an armrest on the door that rests my elbow up high enough that aligns my hand with the steering-wheel spoke. I rest my other hand on the underside of the wheel on my thigh. Make a mock-up to try. I found a center armrest constricting and got in the way when changing gear.

Are those tyres 215/45 like the o.e. Michelins? If so, are is the ride softer and what brand are they?

Like the red trim. Is it guaranteed not to fade.

I hope you didn't put the video cable along the door sill like I did. If you go across in the trunk , put it between the rear seat backs and poke it up under the tunnel cover (no need to remove the cover) it is easy.

Just bought an OFT and installed the Stage 2+. I will try E85 went my tank gets low, have 93 in right now.

First impressions:
Cold start is about 400 RPMs lower which is nice since I leave for work at 4:30 and the neighborhood is dead quiet lol.
Idle after warm up is at about 600, makes for a nice loping rumble at the intersection
Lots more throttle response and pretty decent pull even in higher gears which is really nice in traffic, no constant down shifting.

Overall very pleased with the purchase. I was even able to clear the CEL I got the other day after installing the catless uel.

Thanks for the input. The rear sway pictured is a 16mm Perrin. Plan on using the softest setting for the rear.


Rear : 16mm
3 position
16mm Hole #1 30%
16mm Hole #2 65%
16mm Hole #3 116%






What bar did you install that made it slipperier feeling?




My goal is to have my car feel: more connected, planted, stiffer, yet still not harsh, and a bit more technical to drive.
















And if anyone notices that I have 2 sets of front endlinks... I was told by the vendor, that THESE FA coils 100% did not come with them. (even though front endlinks are pictured on the FA's website) So, I ordered whiteline front to match the rear endlinks. Now I have two sets....

Perrin. I don't recall the thickness though. I was racing autocross at the time with hard as fuck Stance coils. Definitely slipperier than before I put it on though.

Very happy with the front sway bar

The FA's have 6k front 7k rear, probably softer than the stance you were running.


Also, sort of off topic. But they shipped my rear bar with my front bar's tracking number. And I didn't receive a front bar. So I sent pics, and asked them to send me a front bar. They just sent me notification that my "rear bar" was being sent out. I sure hope it's a front bar!!! Other wise I'll have two 16mm rear bars!

It was the damper that was stiff. I had either 5k/6k or 6k/7k for my stance and then my Fortune 500s. I still want happy with it so I moved the front spring to the back and got 9k springs for the front. The heavier front springs helped considerably with unwanted drifting

Washed the bugs off from traveling to Ocean Isle Beach and back last week...and polished the front headlight lenses with scratch remover then Turtlewax Hardshell...tops were getting foggy...


Took the Brother-in-law to the airport...metermaid came up and asked "Is that your car?" After giving the affirmative asked her if she knew what it was...she didn't, but, thought it was a "sweet looking car"

OK, Leonardo - enough is enough -

You do NOT need TWO of every perty, shiny aftermarket piece that will fit your car!

I was assured by the vendor that this set did not come with them. I should have known better. The manufacture supplies a set for the front with the 500 series coils.
