I think there is ZERO chance of them softening the STF PAX or adding ANOTHER ST* class for FWD cars.
With Hollis' 88th place finish at the Nationals, he's right where he used to be when he was winning his class in a Civic, so I don't see Rick Ruth still thinking about softening STF.

My car has FK Highsport coilover springs/housings, with rear Koni Yellows and front Koni inserts that were made for FK Konigsports. Spring rates are supposed to be 400 lb/in front and 350 rear, which is why I'm keeping those FKs. I may consider revalving the front Koni's for next year (anything under 3/4 max rebound damping seems a little too soft to control those springs).

Other details :
Dunlop Star Specs in 215/40/17, on 17x7 Team Dynamics Pro Race 1.2
Front K-Mac plates
Rear adjustable toe arms
Rear adjustable camber arms
Stock front sway bar (did try a 22mm but I felt I was loosing some inner wheel traction)
24mm rear bar
Front control arm poly bushings
Camber around -2.5deg all around
Front caster at 4 deg
Canadian ASN FIA National Autoslalom Champion, 2012

2013 Overall & SP, CADL / 2013 SP, Quebec Championship / 2012 ST & Overall, CADL / 2012 ST, Club Delta Quebec / 2011 Rookie of the Year, CADL
