That makes sense. Sounds like you are having a lot of fun out at the track and racking up some new PBs!

Here some random pictures of some of the updates to the car. Love these new Apex ARC-8 wheels in Satin black. Blends just enough without disappearing to much

Pretty much this is the final form of the car. No more Mods need to be done. Soon will become weekend/toy car/Track car. Never gonna let her go. This car is such a fun car on track.

Added Parts:

APEX ARC-8's 17x9 ET 35 Satin Black
Front Splitter
OEM under panels
Cusco Strut tower with MBC brace
RCE SS'1s
P3 vent gauge with E sensor add-on(can see oil, coolant, AFR, E level, IATs)

Soon to be added:
Versus Standard rear diffuser
Diff and rear suspension tunnel flat panel
Trans Tunnel under flat panel
Attached Images

Im going to need a quick review on those RCE coils. Plush? Harsh? How does it change the balance? More or less understeer/oversteer at the limit? Im looking for many different perspectives.

check this thread. Posted a few thoughts on Track with a full lap at Buttonwillow race track

https://www.ft86club.com/forums/show...=144588&page=2

On the street compared to my old setup:
OE 2017 dampers, RCE Yellows and Peddler top hats. -2.3 up from and -2.2 rear camber.

They ride better in the following ways:
On the recommended settings for street, they soak up bumps better without punishing you. Its still stiff but not over dampened. Body roll is still well controlled. Build quality is nice. To me you got 3 major players in space and price:

Flex-A by CSG
SS's by RCE
Fast Road Pro's by Annex suspension

Quick update:

Still have not put on my under panels but will get to it eventually get to it. No track time atm due to heat so I am being lazy. Will go on before my date at Sonoma on the 7th august.

Got some new rubber for putting down fast laps. Could not help myself as they were on special at Tire Rack and I have never driven on any real 200TW tires. Mounted to my 17x8 Koing Hypergrams. Next year I will get some Apex EC-7Rs for my main track tires and move my ACR-8's as my daily/lapping tire setup

Also getting a Dyno tune for my car with Zach @ CSG before Sonoma. Really want the car dialed in. Order a JDL overpipe to match my header to insure there is no restriction pre secondary cat.

New Slotted rotors from DBA T3 4000 series. Got a steal on these from Amazon. 129$ per rotor! I could not pass it up. I was seeing them for 175-185$ each online. Needed new rotors and this is close enough to Centric Premium blanks. For track I know slotted helps keep the rotors and brake pads happier so I figured I give them a shot.

In other news passed Smog! So I celebrated by putting my Header and Flex fuel back on Screw CARB!

Here are a few shots from my first trip up to Sonoma raceway plus my best lap. Gotta say 200TW tires are fantastic

Really fun track and I know there is a sub 2 in this car on that track. For next time

Did a thing. Trying to make the bottom as flat as possible. Finally got the Verus Under panels installed along with the non aggressive defuser. This kit blends well with the OEM Japan under body panels

That looks nice and tasty

Now we need a comparison of lap times with the upgrades.

Keep it up!
