So I put together the coilovers and installed them. I really need to get pictures but pretty much the car sits just a little lower then stock as I still use this as a daily driver.
Car sits with
Corksport Front Camber
Ingalls rear cambers arms
Tri-point street bar
SSR type c's 16x7.5
Set it to
- 2.7 camber front
- 2.0 camber rear
1/8 inch toe out
Never really got out to autocross but made my way to Gridlife Autobahn and another day at Autobahn which was a full day on the full track. Picked up a lot of time with the help of some friends at Gridlife and have a lot more to pick up I feel as a driver. Car is so fun as I can push it a pretty hard and it gets a little loose in the rear but steps right back in with throttle.
Running EBC yellow pads up front but really disliking how inconsistent they are depending on what temperature they are at the time. Still worked fine just was never sure how much they would grab coming into some corners.
Mods for this winter are to lose 40-50 pounds myself, have a lightweight battery to put in which should drop another 20-25 pounds and some grippier tires as the Bridgestone re760's probably have like 2 more events in them before they give out. Have mazdaspeed3 calipers/rotors to go on also hoping to get some more consistent pads for them. Also have to piece together an oil cooler kit as I feel the temps are a little to high for middle of summer events.
Gridlife North with passenger - fastest lap
Gridlife South- fastest lap- probably most familiar with this track as I have run it in Lemons a lot.
Gridlife Autobahn South full sessions
Autobahn Full day
Ran in our RX7 again for Chump Car Road America- wet to start and dried off throughout my 2 hour session. Some bump and grind at 1:39.55
I know I started this as an autox thread but looks like more and more I will be doing track days possibly some time attack in the stock classes at Gridlife as I really enjoy it a lot so far.
Also got this toy as an engagement gift from the fiance. She still got a nice diamond ring but I feel like I win
1971 Datsun 510 with a megasquirt KA24de. Really want to turn this into a track car but will have to see where that ends up.
