Why? Why not. I'm building the car to have some fun and do track stuff with.
So the plans are to make a bit more power (safely) to have more fun on track and in AX (pro solo mainly) and to make it stick.
I've got the Corksport short intake and turbo inlet pipe on it now and the #2 cat delete for power.
For suspension it's got the JBR race rear bar with some older Tripoint links. Corksport camber plates on stock shocks and cut springs (yeah yeah I know).
Wheels I have 2 sets of 17x9s and a set of 17x8s.
Tires is up in the air. I've got some old Rival 245s and 225s as well as V720 225s. Will try stones this year as well. Rain setup is the 245 Michein PSS.
In the future I'll be putting on some BC coilovers. Deciding between digressive single sweep (rebound and small compression) adjustment, the ER doubles I ran on the 2008 STF car...or a set of their ZR triple adjustables.
Time and money will tell.
I'm also looking for a good crossflow or dual pass radiator as well as pricing out good LSD options for 2017.
